Games2U Entertainment Reaches 100th Franchise Milestone
Mobile Entertainment Company's Commitment to Innovation, Corporate Team Fuels Growth
AUSTIN, TX, March 10, 2010 /24-7PressRelease/ -- National party franchise Games2U Entertainment announced this week the signing of their 100th franchise in Naples, FL.
This milestone represents the latest example of the company's rapid growth since being founded less than three years ago. Games2U Entertainment, a state-of-the-art mobile entertainment company with video game theaters, 4-D movie theaters, outdoor laser tag, human hamster balls, giant robots, and never-before-seen games, is making good on its mission to give every kid in the nation the chance to have a 'rock star' party.
"What excites me most about signing our 100th franchise is that Games2U Entertainment keeps getting bigger and better," said co-founder David Pikoff. "Much of our growth is attributed to inventing unique products that keep our customers coming back and our franchise owners booking parties."
In addition to the company's innovative products, Games2U's brand and growth has skyrocketed. The founders of the company recently teamed up with former Dell Computer Corporation's President Joel Kocher, who is recognized for presiding over Dell's explosive growth in the early 90's.
Kocher, who serves as a shareholder and strategic advisor with Games2U Entertainment has helped the company reach the 100 milestone mark by laying the groundwork for explosive growth over the next five years.
"We've made a lot of changes internally, which have set the company up for tremendous success looking ahead to 2015," said Kocher. "I am thrilled to be part of this fast-growing franchise."
Founded in 2007 by Austin, TX brothers David and Stuart Pikoff, Games2U Entertainment has quickly become the hottest party scene, especially among kids ages 7 to 14 and for birthday parties, school fundraisers and community events.
Each Games2U Entertainment specialized vehicle offers either a 4-D movie theater or an interactive video game theater.
The patent-pending 4-D theater, which debuted in January, offers movie-ride experiences usually seen only in Disney-like theme parks, complete with electronic glasses, moving seats, perfectly synchronized water spritzes, bursts of air and other enhancements that draw guests into the remarkable 3-D landscapes.
The game theater includes multiple flat screens inside and outside with laser lights, surround sound and smoke machines. Top games for XBox 360, Playstation 3 and Wii systems, among others, allow up to 24 gamers to play at one time. High tech laser tag guns function in daylight or dark, and can be set up in front or backyards or in neighborhood parks. Additional party options such as projection carts, Candy Cannons, a foam pit and several others, are available to further enhance events for all ages and group sizes.
Games2U Entertainment plans to have more than 300 signed franchises by the end of 2010. Plans call for the addition of several new franchisees to bring Games2U party vehicles to Southern California, Atlanta, Nashville and Chicago in the coming months.
The company was listed as No. 21 in the AllBusiness.com 2010 rank of fastest-growing franchises, and plans for expansion into Canada and other international markets are foreseeable by year's end.
