FlannelJax’s to Sponsor Lumberjack Days 85th Anniversary Festival

Popular Axe-Throwing Franchise Builds on Successful First-Year Growth with Community Celebration

July 18, 2019 // ST. PAUL, Minn. – FlannelJax’s, the popular St. Paul axe-throwing and lumberjack sports experience, will be a premier sponsor for the 85th Anniversary of Lumberjack Days this weekend. The fun family festival celebrates Stillwater’s lumberjack heritage and the rich local outdoor summer activities of the river town.

Lumberjack Days will run from Friday, July 19 through Sunday, July 21, in downtown Stillwater. Admission is free, and the festivities run daily from 12 p.m. to 10 p.m. The sponsorship of local businesses and organizations help provide free music, lumberjack shows, a downhill derby, a parade and much more for event attendees to enjoy.

FlannelJax’s will host a booth at the event and invite visitors to Thump the Stump. This free nail hammering challenge has a lumberjack twist; participants are only allowed to use a hatchet. Contestants can show off their skills and cheer on their favorite Thump the Stump lumberjacks and lumberjills. FlannelJax’s will provide giveaways at the booth and prizes for Thump the Stump competitors.

“Lumberjack Days is the perfect partnership for FlannelJax’s, as we continue to build off our successful first year in business,” says Keith Beveridge, President of FlannelJax’s. “This event celebrates the many fun outdoor activities enjoyed by Minnesotans, including popular axe-throwing competitions. FlannelJax’s nostalgic axe-throwing experience embodies the rich culture and history of Stillwater and the surrounding area.”

Lumberjack Days also reunites FlannelJax’s and Lift Bridge Brewing Co., a Stillwater-based craft brewery. This successful partnership between two popular local companies began during the franchise’s one-year anniversary celebration on June 28.

FlannelJax’s to Open Customer Care Center in Sydney, Nova Scotia

Premier North American Axe-Throwing Franchise to Offer Superior Customer Service

June 24, 2019 // Mississauga, Ontario – FlannelJax’s, an axe throwing and recreation sports experience franchise headquartered in Mississauga, Ontario, announced plans to open a new customer care center in Sydney, Nova Scotia. The center will streamline inquiries to better serve all FlannelJax’s customers as well as create valuable new jobs.

The new customer care center will open in mid-July at 1290 Kings Road in Sydney. The center will handle inbound calls for FlannelJax’s current and future locations, as well as online messages through FlannelJax’s website. Representatives will be available from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. to book axe throwing events, handle inquiries and provide additional service for FlannelJax’s customers.

“The creation of the customer care center will be beneficial for FlannelJax’s customers and operators, as well as the Sydney community,” said Stephen Schober, CEO of FlannelJax’s. “Our representatives will provide unparalleled service to our customers while allowing our franchise owners and their staff to focus on running the daily operations of the business and providing the best possible customer experience. We will also be able to provide valuable jobs to qualified service representatives in the Sydney area.”

The customer care center has already recruited an experienced manager for the location to lead operations and is now in the process of recruiting five to seven customer service representatives. As the business continues to grow and expand, the customer care center plans to add upwards of 30 employees over the next five years. A job fair seeking customer service representatives will be held on Monday, June 24 at the Holiday Inn at 300 Esplanade in Sydney.

One of the factors for FlannelJax’s selecting Sydney as the customer care center location is the high number of experienced call center agents in the area. FlannelJax’s worked with the Cape Breton Partnership in the planning and development of the center. The Cape Breton Partnership is an organization that unites businesses and communities across the Cape Breton region with the goal of driving the local economy forward.

“As Cape Breton’s economic development organization, we are excited to see a growing company chose our island as a place to do business,” said Cape Breton Partnership President & CEO Carla Arsenault. “We were able to connect FlannelJax’s to the resources they needed to expand here, and the jobs created as a result will directly benefit our local economy.”

Go Axe Throwing In St. Paul at the New FlannelJax’s

St. Paul just got a little more exciting!

Axe-Throwing-In-St-Paul
FlannelJax’s, Minnesota’s premier axe throwing and recreational sports experience, has opened in St. Paul, Minnesota! At this brand new, rustic venue you and your group can toss axes like a real Minnesota lumberjack (just like your hero and mine, Paul Bunyan).

If you’ve never been axe throwing before, you just don’t know what you’re missing. It’s an incredible rush to toss an axe end-over-end and hear that THWACK as it splits the target. And first-timers don’t need to worry, we’ll teach you everything you need to know. At FlannelJax’s you have a dedicated Lumberjack or Lumberjill to coach you, teach you all of our fun games, and make sure you and your group are having an axe-ellent time (you had to expect at least one axe pun; axe-cuse me if it was cheesy 😉 ).

But FlannelJax’s St. Paul is more than just axe throwing. You can also take part in a variety of other unique, fun lumber sports, including Crosscut Sawing, Thump the Stump, and Log Rolling. All of these games – in addition to axe throwing – are available at our St. Paul location. It makes for an exciting, competitive experience perfect for a group of friends or coworkers. You’ll be talking about it long after you’ve left… Trust us.

At FlannelJax’s we also offer snacks and drinks, and we are working on getting our license to serve so your group can enjoy our games with a cold beer or glass of wine. You can also order in food for your group or have your event catered.

If you’re looking for something new and fun to do in St. Paul, you have to try axe throwing at FlannelJax’s.

FlannelJax’s is located at 755 Prior Ave North, Suite 102, right near BlackStack Brewing, Can Can Wonderland, St. Paul Station, and sandwiched in between the University of Minnesota, Hamline University and Concordia University, St. Paul. You can book your session online or by calling (612) 268-4800.
