Frank Endres, Lee “Bud” Bongard, and Ed Hellenbrand opened a 12-lane bowling alley in 1972. When they were first starting, Wauna-A-Bowl was mostly about bowling, but the bar did help pay the overhead. Frank Endres retired in 1980, and Mark Haag, a popular manager at the alley, purchased part of the business. Ed and Char Hellenbrand found themselves as the sole owners in 2000 and passed Waun-A-Bowl on to Don Laufenberg, Tom Laufenberg, and Scott Adler. Waun-A-Bowl strives “to provide high-quality services and products at reasonable prices” for their customers. Their goal is “to keep family entertainment affordable.” Waun-A-Bowl is a proud local sponsor, supporting Bowl for Beagle, Relay for Life, Special Olympics, and numerous others.
