Flight Club and Electric Shuffle owner Red Engine saw its sales rise by over a quarter compared to 2022.

The group, supported by its franchise partners State of Play Hospitality and NightOwl Entertainment, opened four new sites in 2023 across the UK, US and Australia, taking the total Red Engine and partners estate to 25 venues – 15 owned and 10 partner-owned.

Red Engine venues and partner venues sales combined exceeded £100m for 2023, up 28% year on year, with like-for-like sales increasing by 10%.

Sales at Red Engine-owned venue sales totalled £67m.
The group opened two new Scottish venues in Glasgow and Edinburgh last year and its franchise partners opened a further two sites in Fremantle in Australia and Denver in the US. It reports that all of its sites hit new sales records in 2023 and that its newest Scottish additions ‘have far exceeded’ expectations.

Red Engine and its partners plan to expand to 33 venues this year. Red Engine will open Flight Club Oxford​ and Liverpool and Electric Shuffle Manchester and New York, while its franchise partners will open Flight Clubs in Philadelphia, Washington, Sydney and Melbourne.
“As we head towards the 10-year anniversary of the first Flight Club, it’s incredibly rewarding to see the business grow from strength to strength,” says Ross Shepley-Smith, CFO at Red Engine.

“With a pipeline of eight more locations planned for 2024, we look forward to continuing to grow our brands, but more importantly, remaining focused on our mission to make groups of friends everywhere ridiculously happy.”

Red Engine’s Flight Club Darts and Electric Shuffle launched in 2015 and 2019 respectively with the company announcing it has reached the 500 million darts thrown milestone earlier this year.
