Across nearly three-fourths of the United States, AMF Bowling Co. reverberates year-round as families, friends, and competitors send bowling balls in search of upright pins careening down slick lanes. The company first established itself as an industry leader in 1946, the same year the sport introduced automated pinspotters.
Today, more than 20 million bowlers annually make AMF their battleground for wars against pins. As the largest owner and and operator of bowling centers in the US, AMF locations offer high-tech scoring technology, a classic design, and a menu stocked with American-inspired classics such as wings, pizzas, burgers, and beer.

In 1906 the Artesian Manufacturing and Bottling Company was created to distribute the smooth, bubbly taste known as Dr Pepper. Today, that building still stands and is dedicated to a similar mission: to teach the world about the history of the iconic soda, a vision realized by a few devoted enthusiasts. The building became the Dr Pepper Museum in 1989, then the Dr Pepper Museum and Free Enterprise Institute in 1997. Today, it is a tribute to the imagination and talent that fueled the soft drink's success throughout the years.
