Launch Entertainment Inks Deal for its Latest New Hampshire Location

Local Entrepreneurs Bring Family Entertainment to Merrimack Valley

NEW HAMPSHIRE Launch Entertainment (Launch), a leading family entertainment franchise, recently signed an agreement to open a new park in Southern New Hampshire. Site selection is currently underway in the Merrimack Valley region and is projected to open in the first quarter of 2025. The park will serve the local communities of Nashua, Merrimack, and Manchester, in addition to Lowell, Massachusetts.

Spearheading the opening of the new location is Kashish Shah, alongside his partners Kunal Patel, Gaurang Patel, and Bhaumik Shah. The Merrimack Valley group brings diverse professional backgrounds in corporate strategy, engineering, information technology, healthcare and pharmaceutical, and real estate management. With a shared vision to create a one-of-a-kind experience for families, they are poised to establish a Launch Park in New Hampshire.

“Each member of our team brings unique skills to this new endeavor, which will help us become a central part of the community,” said Kashish. “We noticed a lack of family-friendly entertainment options in our area, especially ones that cater to both kids and adults. Launch is the perfect opportunity that offers a diverse range of attractions, and we can’t wait to bring the fun and excitement to Southern New Hampshire and beyond.”

The upcoming park will feature attractions such as a bowling alley, arcade games, an air track basketball court, laser tag, obstacle courses, a Krave restaurant, a bar, and more. The new location will not only bolster Launch’s strategic expansion on the East Coast but also solidify its position as an undisputed leader in the family entertainment industry.


“Kashish, Kunal, Gaurang, and Bhaumik’s expertise in various industries and shared commitment to their community aligns perfectly with Launch’s vision for expansion,” said Jeff Todd, Chief Development Officer at Launch Entertainment. “Their dedication to delivering exceptional experiences and filling a gap in family entertainment makes them an ideal partner for us. We’re excited to support their development and witness the positive impact they’ll have in New Hampshire.”

The Launch Entertainment business model offers a scalable, multi-unit opportunity and provides a fun, dynamic, and competitive environment to further drive growth for its franchise operators. With multiple revenue streams, the concept entices customers of all ages with a thrilling experience through its various attractions and amenities.

Target markets for growth include new and existing markets around the Midwest, Northeast, and Southwest, with a current emphasis on Georgia, Texas, Ohio, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Connecticut, Arizona, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Alabama, New Jersey, Kansas and Missouri. The brand is seeking franchise partnerships with investors wanting to diversify their portfolio through its multi-revenue stream business model. Potential franchisees are higher net-worth individuals, with $1.5M liquid and $3M net worth.
