About Shaffer Entertainment

Shaffer Entertainment is a premier provider of currency-operated entertainment equipment and on-premise promotions. Utilizing our unique blend of equipment and promotions, along with fast and efficient service, we serve a diverse group of business establishments including bars and taverns, bowling centers, family entertainment centers, movie theatres and restaurants throughout the greater central Ohio and Indiana regions, as well as select corporate accounts nationally.

We are the preeminent supplier and facilitator of on-premise promotions including local soft-tip dart, VNEA-BCA pool, Golden Tee Golf and Silver Strike Bowling leagues, as well as being a founding member of the annual Summer Showdown, one of the Nation’s largest soft-tip dart tournaments.

At Shaffer Entertainment, we strive to be an industry leader by dedicating ourselves to these 5 Catalysts of Profitability:

  1. Increase Foot Traffic – By providing fun, engaging equipment and promotions, we drive incremental foot traffic to your location.
  2. Extend Patrons Stay – Fun, engaging activities encourage your patrons to stay longer, increasing dwell time, and their overall spend on food, beverages and games.
  3. Create Players – Through the creation of players and player communities, we help you generate sustainable, recurring revenue opportunities for your business.
  4. Create More Game Play – Regular, active players create more game play while providing you additional food and beverage sales.
  5. Increase Frequency of Player Visits – Though our promotions and league play, we help increase the number of times each patron visits your location, allowing you more opportunities to build patron loyalty and generate higher sales revenue within your establishment.

Location owners and patrons alike consistently rate us best in class when it comes to equipment selection, service quality and response time, on-premise promotions and finally, average gross equipment collections.


Founded in 1988 as an affiliate division of the Shaffer Distributing Company, Shaffer Services, Inc. (GO Amusements) was formed in Columbus, Ohio when Shaffer Distributing’s current owner and then President Steve Shaffer acquired and merged three local vending operators-GO Coin, Modern Music and Ace Vending.

Over the past thirty-plus years, reputational growth along with strategic acquisitions have allowed Shaffer Entertainment to expand its footprint across the Midwest with additional offices in Indianapolis and Richmond, Indiana. Most recently, we’ve expanded our footprint even further by providing our services to corporate accounts located throughout the United States.

Today, with fourth-generation family member Scott Shaffer as president, Shaffer Entertainment’s team of highly experienced veterans have developed a trusting reputation for providing customers the very best jukeboxes, arcade games, electronic dart boards, pool tables, crane merchandisers and ATMs.

Our team that makes Shaffer Entertaiment so great.
