Family Entertainment Center Franchise Awards New Location to Jae Noh in Northern Virginia

MANASSAS, Va. – (March 16, 2022) – Launch Entertainment, a leading operator and franchisor of innovative, year-round family entertainment centers, is continuing to grow its presence across the nation. The franchise’s latest deal will bring Launch’s fun-filled experience for all ages to Manassas, Virginia, and the surrounding community.

Launch Entertainment, headquartered in Warwick, Rhode Island, is one of the fastest-growing family recreation movements in the United States. The state-of-the-art family entertainment center franchise 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.

Jae Noh, the latest Launch Entertainment franchisee, has worked for the government in the patent industry for more than 30 years. Noh is thrilled to launch a new career as his own boss while bringing the Northern Virginia community its very own family entertainment center. The Manassas Launch location is currently in development with plans to open by 2023. As residents of the area, Noh and his family 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.

“As a father to two daughters, it’s been challenging to find places to go as a whole family,” said Noh. “In the Northern Virginia area, there’s honestly not much to do. When I heard about Launch and what they have to offer not only to the children but parents too, it really influenced my decision. Launch Entertainment fills a much-needed void in our community. I can’t wait to provide a safe, fun, and positive destination for everyone to enjoy and spend quality time together.”

Launch Franchisees are beneficiaries of comprehensive support and training from an industry-leading franchise team. Franchisees like Noh enjoy the independence of small business ownership while being backed by the benefits of a big business network.

Launch’s model, differentiated amenities, and one-of-a-kind Krave restaurant are key factors that made Noh confident in bringing the family entertainment center into the community he calls home.  Launch Entertainment is a service-based, high-margin business that drives repeat customers by going above and beyond what most family entertainment businesses offer.

“Launch Entertainment supports my objective of attracting more activity-based clientele,” Noh said of his decision. “Their innovative business model coupled with their willingness to evolve and improve customer satisfaction speaks volumes. My beliefs align seamlessly with Launch’s leadership team to always stay ahead of the curve. As the demands of customers change, Launch’s business model allows us to remain competitive and the number one choice for those seeking an exhilarating experience.”

Launch currently has 25 family entertainment centers open for business in 13 states across the nation. The rapid expansion of the family entertainment franchise continues by the hour, with numerous other locations in various stages of development.

“Launch Entertainment will be a fantastic addition to Manassas and the surrounding community,” said Launch CEO Rob Arnold. “We are thrilled to continue expanding our footprint across the nation and the state of Virginia. Jae is a visionary. He has ambitious goals for the Manassas Launch location. We are excited to support his endeavors and watch Jae thrive as he works to open his very first family entertainment center.”
