B&B Lanes, formerly known as Dix Etown Lanes, has been owned by the Taylor family for almost 60 years. The bowling alley has served the Hardin County community through three generations of Taylor's and looks forward to serving it for many more!
B.L. Taylor was the first to have partial ownership of the bowling alley. He started in the bowling business with the hopes of creating a legacy of giving families a fun, safe environment in the Hardin County area. B.L. approached his family in hopes to buy out the bowling alley to create the Taylor family business, which included wife Ruby and their three sons Denny, Dean, and David. Ruby and Denny remained part of the bowling alley until their deaths in 1995. Denny's Den, located in the restaurant area of the bowling alley, is dedicated to his service and leadership to the family business. The B.L Bar & Grill at B&B Lanes is named after B.L. Taylor, and Ruby's grill is named after his wife and matriarch of the Taylor family. When B.L. passed in 2010, Dean and David became the sole proprietors of the business.
Dean and David grew the business to continue serving families while also growing their own families. All of their children, and even some of the grandchildren, have worked at the bowling alley during their tenure! In 2021, David took full ownership of the bowling alley and B&B Lanes was born. The new name is in honor of his and wife Tonya's two children, Brice and Brianna Taylor, who were tragically killed in separate accidents twelve days apart in 2014. Both children enjoyed working at the bowling alley, especially Brice who loved working during Special Olympics league nights. Their children are their pride and joy, and they felt it fitting to pay tribute to them by changing the name.
B&B Lanes hopes to reflect the love for family, fun, and bowling that Brice and Brianna and the entire Taylor family has. We offer 24 lanes with the latest in technology in the bowling industry. We offer a pro shop for your bowling needs and 1,500 square feet of private meeting/party rooms.
