How did KCC start, what was the initial goal?
In 2000, karting was very popular in Belgium and the initial idea was to design and realize top-notch Karting Entertainment Centres.
At the same time, karting also gained popularity in Asia and in USA. After a market research, we decided to launch our approach and ideas in those regions as well.
Our first contract was for a karting entertainment centre in Hong Kong followed by several locations in the USA (Dallas, Houston, …).
Quickly the ‘karting entertainment centres’ business got extended with other entertainment offerings.
After HK and USA, we designed and build our first Middle East karting entertainment centre in Jeddah, KSA. IN10SO is in the large shopping mall Serafi Mega Mall.
The owner of the mall invited us to design and build his indoor entertainment park he wanted in a different part of the mall.
We took this opportunity, strengthened our team and designed and built, in a record time, our first family entertainment centre with the name ‘Moon Toon’.
We were rookies in the business, but the park was immensely successful and had a ROI in approx. 9 months.
And,… both IN10SO and Moon Toon are still successfully open today!
This was the starting point for a lot of great entertainment centres and parks designed and built by KCC worldwide.
Today, our history is still reflected in our name: Karting Concept Company. We kept KCC as our brand name and this is now worldwide associated with distinctive entertainment projects.
