Launch Entertainment Inks Multi-Unit Deal for New Locations in Florida
Family Entertainment Center Franchise Awards Multi-Unit Agreement to Clay Ritchey in Tampa
December 16, 2021 // Franchising.com // Tampa, Fla. - Launch Entertainment, an operator and franchisor of innovative, year-round family entertainment centers, is growing its presence. The franchise’s most recent deal will bring Launch’s fun-filled experience for all ages to Tampa, Florida, and the surrounding area.
Launch Entertainment was founded in 2012 by Rob and Erin Arnold. Launch offers a differentiated entertainment experience with a wide variety of attractions and amenities for all ages, including XP Arena, ninja courses, laser tag arenas, virtual reality rooms, ropes courses, bowling, trampolines, Krave restaurant and Bar Hops beverage service, and more.
The newest Launch Entertainment locations will be coming soon to Hillsborough County, Manatee County, Pinellas County and the Polk County communities. This comes as a result of a 4-unit agreement recently signed by local physician Clay Ritchey. All four locations are currently in the development phase. As residents of the area, Ritchey and his family of six know the value of a fun-filled experience with a great atmosphere to celebrate birthdays, family gatherings, church events, work outings, or just a date night that everyone from all walks of life can enjoy.
“When looking for a franchise that fit my family’s lifestyle, Launch Entertainment was an easy choice,” Ritchey said of his decision. “We wanted a franchise that established an excellent line of communication and had a successful business model and a leadership team who could walk us through each step of the process. Launch checked all of our boxes, and we are thrilled to bring such an innovative family entertainment center to our surrounding communities.”
“Launch Entertainment stood out to us because they allow families of all ages to come together and provide experiences no other businesses offer,” Ritchey said. “We selected communities precisely for that reason. The four counties we chose to open a Launch Entertainment location are rapidly growing with a lot of young families. We are looking forward to giving our community the option of a close, fun and affordable place to enjoy an outing together.”
“Launch Entertainment will be a great addition to the Hillsborough County, Manatee County, Pinellas County and Polk County communities,” said Launch CEO Rob Arnold. “As a franchise, we are rapidly expanding our footprint across the nation, and the four locations in Florida are a testament to our success. We are eager to work with Clay and watch him excel on all levels as he ventures on this journey with Launch.”
