Since Launch’s inception in 2012, CenterEdge has been a trusted partner, providing Advantage POS, Events, and Payments solutions that Launch locations across the United States have used to drive sales and enhance operational efficiency.

“Since day one, CenterEdge has been proud to partner with Launch as they have built some of the most unique and experiential parks in the industry,” says Merrik Keller, Director of Business Development at CenterEdge. “We look forward to continuing our collaboration and supporting Launch’s growth journey.”

Craig Erlich echoed these sentiments, stating, “With our robust expansion plan, including new parks planned for Texas, Florida, and Georgia over the coming year, the partnership between CenterEdge and Launch becomes even more critical.
