The Story

Boardwalk in Wildwood, New Jersey

BEMG was born out of the ambition and vision of three young entrepreneurs in 1994. Gary Conroy, Sean Dougherty and EJ Dougherty met on the Boardwalk in Wildwood, New Jersey, where they began their careers as Amusement Business Owner/Operators. As young entrepreneurs they built a reputation as honest and hard working businessmen. The company enjoyed steady expansion through these early years. In 1999, BEMG was successful in securing a lease with Old Town, a Central Florida eating, shopping, and dinning attraction located just three miles outside Disney World. The company quickly created an exciting amusement presence in the 12 acre park and within two short years had gained full control of the amusement division of Old Town through a management contract with park owners.

In 2004, BEMG hit it's first milestone when it accquired Olympic Enterprises, a six thousand square foot entertainment facility in North Wildwood, New Jersey. The acquisition had real meaning for all the principals as it was, in fact, where all three had been employed at a young age before beginning their partnership and careers together.

Stewart's on the Boardwalk in Wildwood, New Jersey

In 2007, the company developed it first commercial property when it built Stewart's Root Beer, an ocean front, two story franchise restaurant on the Wildwood Boardwalk. The project was a $2,000,000 endeavor and gained incredible recognition as an iconic and staple landmark in the famous, one hundred year old seaside town. To the Partners this project represented the beginning of illustrating the true vision and passion of the company.

In 2010, BEMG expanded its restaurant presence and partnered with one of the world's largest amusement operators, the Morery Organization. The project was named Captain Jack's Bar and Grill and was equal in stature to the first restaurant. More famously was the fact the group was successful in attaining licensing to become the first restaurant in history to serve alcohol on the Boardwalk.

In Florida through 2010 Old Town had witnessed BEMG grow to full bloom when it acquired the Assets, full exclusivity and a twenty year lease on all Amusements on property. The Purchase Agreement was the first steps towards seeing BEMG align itself to acquire the entire property. By November of 2010 the group had signed a Letter of Intent along with a Management Contract and took full control of the Management of Old Town. To date, BEMG have signed a definitive purchase agreement and are making incredible strides in breathing new life into this great complex. BEMG intend on reaching a closing by September of 2011. The project is a real 'dream come true' scenario for the Partners whose ambition has long been to own and operate its own amusement park.
