Family Entertainment Concept Signs Deal to Open in North Carolina with Established Entrepreneurs

RALEIGH, NC Launch Entertainment, an indoor family entertainment franchise, is reaching new heights in North Carolina —

The leading entertainment park, known for its variety of awesome attractions for the whole family, recently signed an agreement with local business owners, Kamlesh and Pragnesh Shah. The deal will include the development of a new park in Raleigh, marking the concept’s second location in North Carolina. The agreement re-establishes Launch Entertainment’s strong East Coast growth as one of the multiple upcoming locations in the region. Launch Entertainment of Raleigh is expected to start construction later this year and will feature attractions such as ninja course, bowling, indoor trampolines, arcades, and more.

“After being involved in the childcare industry for five years now, I wanted to utilize my skills in a new way and expand my business endeavors, and the family entertainment industry was a great move for us to make with the alignment in values and operations,” said Kamlesh. “Launch Entertainment is a fast-growing entertainment franchise and Pragnesh and I wanted to be part of this exciting growth. As operators, the multiple revenue streams and year-round foot traffic were both attractive differentiators, as well as the opportunity to serve the Raleigh area.  We look forward to bringing Launch’s awesome array of activities to the community.”

Prior to joining the Launch Entertainment team, Kamlesh earned a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in computer science from New York University and went on to work in IT and management for 25 years. He later moved to North Carolina where he now owns and operates two childcare locations in Apex and Holly Springs. Pragnesh has a Bachelor’s degree in computer engineering and gained strong business analysis skills by working at a multinational company for more than 10 years. In 2017, he moved to North Carolina to pursue his own convenience store and gas station venture. Kamlesh and Pragnesh are bringing with them their robust business knowledge and management to aid the opening of their Launch location.
