Case Study

Hi there! My name is James and three years ago I started an axe throwing venue called Forged Axe Throwing. We teach people how to throw axes and then run amazing tournaments with everyone. Many of our clients are visitors to the area as we’re in a resort town, but we also have a locals league and get lots of local businesses coming to us for events.

This was our team early on, we’ve since expanded to about 22 staff members.

Case Study

Hi! My name is Kelly Josberger, and I’m one of the owners of Stumpy’s Hatchet House, which is an indoor hatchet-throwing venue that specializes in parties and events for adults. Throwing an axe is just part of the experience. Learning a new skill (hurling a hatchet to a wooden target), playing hatchet-throwing games, and socializing with friends and family among our beautiful rustic environment make it an occasion to remember! We host birthdays, bachelor/bachelorette parties, corporate outings, team building activities, fundraisers, reunions and more!

Stumpy’s flagship location is in Eatontown, New Jersey. After opening in 2016 and gaining popularity and success as the country’s first indoor hatchet-throwing venue, we decided to expand by franchising in 2017. We now have 15 locations open in New Jersey, Delaware, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, North Carolina, Texas, and Florida, with 24 more coming soon in states across the country.
