Pinstack Opens First Location with Sacoa

February 12, 2015 No Comments

By Karen Appold

Entertainment Properties Group, Inc. has opened their first Pinstack location in West Plano, Texas, with the Sacoa PlayCard System to manage attractions and redemption throughout this new 50,000-square-foot flagship dining and entertainment complex. Their premiere venue features 150 deluxe games and indoor mega attractions of laser tag, bumper cars, climbing walls and an elevated rope course above the arcade. In addition, Pinstack offers guests a full-service restaurant, two bars and 28 lanes for bowling.

The group also operates iTZ Pizza locations in the Southwest, where they have used another company for many years, so changing to a different debit system was a big move for them. Brian Cohen, vice president of operations, said, “After an extensive review of card system providers we chose to partner with Sacoa on our newest brand, Pinstack.  Pinstack represents cutting-edge amusements, food and bowling in an upscale environment and they fit nicely into that mix.”

Sacoa Director Sebastian Mochkovsky said, “I’m very happy to work together with this incredible property, Pinstack. It was a challenge for us to show our capabilities when they already operate iTZ with another card system. This is just the beginning of a long-term relationship, and we will support Entertainment Properties Group, Inc., for any future or existing center by providing the most advanced products available in the industry.”

“We could not have found a better partner or spot to showcase our PlayCard System to the industry in Texas,” said Brian Duke, new business development for Sacoa. “Everything here is state-of-the-art entertainment, beautifully done with all the latest hit titles and big screens throughout the facility so everyone can enjoy anything from sports to music. This FEC is just the first location to open and we are proud to partner with Entertainment Properties Group, Inc., to bring Sacoa’s complete Total Revenue Management Solution to their business. And we beat out all the competition by offering the best system at the best value too.”
