With decades of work in the entertainment and entertainment industries, Games To Go Nashville owner Tony Hunnicutt said he spent years developing and selling games for amusement parks before developing an idea for portable miniature golf courses.
“We all grew up on miniature golf,” Hunnicutt said. “You go to the beach and play miniature golf on vacation even today. It’s kind of an iconic and timeless activity.”
That idea grew into Games To Go Nashville, a Franklin-based company that rents games and equipment throughout the Tennessee area. In addition to offering a nine-hole miniature golf course, the company offers garden games, including lawn bowling, giant Jenga and cornhole, at hourly and daily rates.
Hunnicutt said that when he first brought the business to the Franklin area in 2017, his main focus was on birthdays and other celebrations. However, being a member of the Williamson Inc. chamber also inspired him to expand his business to include rentals for local businesses willing to offer games for team outings and events. About two-thirds of Games To Go Nashville’s business is based on referrals and word of mouth, he said.
Games To Go Nashville also features games created by Hunnicutt himself, including “Yardzee”, an oversized version of Yahtzee, and Soccer Pool, a pool game using a large field and colorful soccer balls.
Hunnicutt said the best part of his business is helping people play and have a good time.
“It’s about miniature golf, soccer, and backyard games, but what my business really does is sell fun,” Hunnicutt said. “I put smiles on people’s faces. I like to tell people that I really have the funniest job in the world, because that’s what I do all day.
