Launch Entertainment signs multi-unit deal in Florida

The family entertainment franchise is fuelling more growth with a new multi-unit deal in Tampa, Florida

Launch Entertainment, the family entertainment center franchise, has announced the signing of a multi-unit deal in Tampa, Florida with local physician, Clay Ritchie. This new deal will bring four units to the area. 

The fast-growing family entertainment brand was founded in 2012 by Rob and Erin Arnold, which offers a variety of games and activities for all ages.  The newest Launch Entertainment locations will serve Hillsborough County, Manatee County, Pinellas County and Polk County. All four locations are currently in development.  

“Launch Entertainment will be a great addition to the Hillsborough County, Manatee County, Pinellas County and Polk County communities,” said Rob Arnold, CEO of Launch.  

“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.” 

“When looking for a franchise that fit my family’s lifestyle, Launch Entertainment was an easy choice,” said Ritchie.  

“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 features a restaurant and beverage service, creating an important extra revenue generator on top of the cost of the experiential and entertainment facilities. This helped to convince Ritchie of the concept and to sign the deal. 

“Launch Entertainment stood out to us because they allow families of all ages to come together and provide experiences no other businesses offer,” said Ritchie.  

“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 currently has 29 centers open across 13 states, with numerous locations at various stages of development.
