The Pennsylvania Industrial Development Authority (PIDA) recently approved a $355,000 loan to Spooky Nook Sports, facilitated through EDC Finance Corporation. The long-term low-interest loan will support the installation of a new commercial kitchen, an event stage, sound system, and lighting display, along with fit out of a pre-event area. This investment enhances Spooky Nook Sports’ operations by expanding its event hosting capabilities, increasing the range of customers that can be served.
Spooky Nook Sports has seen considerable growth since it began operations in 2014. A recent analysis by Tourism Economics calculated its local economic impact at $54.7 million for 2017 in direct spending in Lancaster County, including generating 60,000 hotel room nights last year. Spooky Nook Sports also recently announced the acquisition of Lanco Fieldhouse, further expanding its local operations and impact.
