10 year old girl from Southport launches her own business!

12th May 2020

A Southport based young girl aged “ONLY 10” has launched her very own company. 

“Classic Arcade Machines” after watching her dad over the years. Cece Mezzone-Taylor has followed her fathers footsteps in the gaming machine industry.

Cece’s business started off with an idea, from her to rent out old style machines from, to quote Cece “the old days when you were a kid”. Her Father then suggested she had a great idea. So, with a little help from her Dad she set upon a mission to source, invest and advertise her machines.

It began with just two machines – hiring out for £50 for the weekend. She had turned a profit of over £800 in her first month. Cece not only has hired out to tens of clients, but has actually sold some machines too!

She has a new delivery of the machines arriving this week and is continuing to take bookings for the foreseeable future.

Obviously adhering to Covid-19 guidelines – Cece, a student a Scarisbrick Hall School who’s mother is a student paramedic has been taught and completely abides by not only zero customer contact, wearing gloves and masks for delivery.

The Classic Arcade Machines feature: 60 Old style games including the forever popular, Pac-Man, Space Invaders, Arkanoid, Donkey Kong, 1942 aswell as many more.

Cece is already planning her business expansion, when not homeschooling or out delivering she spends a lot of time doing market research, business plans and designs for new machines!

This girl has ambition, drive and is very highly motivated and being a Southport girl I think it’s someone that we will see a lot of in the near future!

At the time of writing this post I’m very excited for this young Entrepreneur and I’m excited to see where she goes in the future.
