Pool table business in Kenya, profits and best companies to buy pool tables from


Pool table business is among the most profitable businesses in Kenya. This is one venture without running costs. You are only required to buy pool tables, pay for the license and get a specious place to set up the business.

  • Cost of setting up pool business in Kenya

To buy 1 pool table, it will cost you Ksh 80,000 to Ksh 90,000. You need license which costs Ksh 10,000 to Ksh 20,000 per year depending on your County. You will also rent a room for Ksh 7,000 to Ksh 15,000 per month. In total, you need a capital of Ksh 100,000 to Ksh 150,000 to start pool table business with just one table.

Pool table business works best where population is high. You’ll therefore have to do thorough research to determine the most suitable location. Nairobi, Kisumu, Nakuru, Kisii, Eldoret and Mombasa are among the most ideal places for the business.

Another thing to remember is that the more pool tables you own, the more money you’ll make. I would suggest that you look for a specious room that can accommodate up to 10 pool tables. Rent will be as high as Ksh 40,000.

In the room, you can set up a wines and spirits shop because your clients would need drinks as they enjoy the game.

Pool table profits and challenges

One of the challenges is dealing with the police. They may harass you initially but with time, they’ll leave you to do your work. Make sure you are in good terms with the police.

Another challenge involves the person to put in charge of the business. He must be trustworthy. Look for someone you’ll pay on commission basis. If possible, you should manage the business in person.

With 1 pool table, you’ll make Ksh 500 to Ksh 2,000 per day. The profit entirely depends on the number of games played per day. Each game costs Ksh 20 to Ksh 50.If there are 50 games in a day, you’ll make 1000 and above. On the lower side there will be 20 games which will yield Ksh 400.

Assuming you are operating 5 pool tables, you’ll make over Ksh 3,000 daily

From your profits, you’ll pay your employee Ksh 15,000 to Ksh 30,000 per month. You’ll also pay rent and other small expenses. One pool table will fetch more than Ksh 10,000 month after expenses.
