Jennison Entertainment Technologies (JET) has been appointed as the exclusive US distributor for all Jolly Roger rides. The agreement between both companies was reached prior to the start of the worldwide pandemic and formalized June 1st. The announcement allows immediate domestic support of all Jolly Roger products in the United States. JET will stock all rides and parts at its newly expanded headquarters in Daytona Beach, Florida.
As part of the agreement, Paul Teneyuca who was previously the senior director of game operations for CEC Entertainment Inc., will be working with the company to help develop the business domestically. Paul brings a wealth of expertise with his insight and familiarity within the operation aspect of the industry.
Commenting on the partnership, Jeff Peveler, JET’s director of domestic business development, stated: “A partnership between JET and Jolly Roger makes perfect sense. We are both known for quality product and timely, professional customer care. Having Jolly Roger’s product and parts on hand with JET will cut down lead time and provide a familiar presence for sales, parts & service.”
In addition to the distribution of all Jolly Roger products, JET has also designed several new rides that will be manufactured by Jolly Roger in the United Kingdom. These rides will replace JET’s and FFC’s entire kiddie ride product line. The first of these rides will be sold under the Family Fun Companies brand and will be available at the end of 2020.
