Meet Kyle Thomson & Eric Bishop
Business partners, Kyle Thomson and Eric Bishop, had a vision to make the Pleasant Valley Plaza a one-stop entertainment complex where Houston families would be able to come and have food and fun together all in one place. After purchasing the Pleasant Valley Plaza in 2009, they refurbished the bowling alley and made improvements to the movie theatre. Now, along with their tenant Lee’s Garden, they cooperate to provide combo deals so that Houston families can have an affordable night out together that includes entertainment and a meal. Eric says, “There aren’t many activities that entire families can do together, from young children to grandparents. Bowling is one of those, and so is going to the movies and out for a meal.” Eric and Kyle are proud to be able to provide fun family entertainment options to all the families that call Houston home.
Running a business is a bit of a balancing act, say Kyle and Eric. Although things like the local mill closure make things even more challenging, they believe that by working together with other businesses as they do within the Pleasant Valley Plaza, businesses can find creative ways to survive tough times and even thrive in the northern economy. Flexibility is also important, notes Eric, as is the ability to change and adapt as needs arise in the community. One of those needs, says Eric, is a place to hold events. Kyle and Eric are currently working on remodelling the lower level of the plaza and turning it into a banquet and meeting facility which they hope to tie into the other businesses in the building.
Exciting. Active. Fun.
