In what has become an annual tradition, Launch Agency employees celebrated the Fourth of July and all things Americana with a South-of-the-Border battle in the 2011 Tex-Mex Taste-Off.
The trash talk started at 8:30 that morning, but the competition kicked off at noon with five competing salsas, three quesos, four guacamoles and two desserts. Congrats to all our winners:
Best Original Salsa: Michael Boone, reigning champion of Taste-Off 2010
Best “Fun” Salsa: Joanna Rodriguez with her Fiesta Salsa
Best Queso: Jason Giles and Richard Wezensky, whose secret ingredients were cilantro and soy sausage bits
Best Guacamole: Alexandra Watson, whose guac packed some heat
Best Dessert: Megan Kelly with her killer Sopapilla Cheesecake.
All these competing dishes – combined with fajitas supplied by Launch Principals Michael Boone, Diane Seimetz and David Wilgus – made for an incredibly stuffed and happy Launch staff. Photos follow.

As with most families, Launch has several traditions that mark each holiday season.
To celebrate Turkey Day, each member of the Launch team shared their favorite holiday food at our annual “Launchgiving” feast. Bellies and hearts were both full, as we also collected cans of food for those less fortunate.
For Christmas, the Launch partners – Michael Boone, Diane Seimetz and Dave Wilgus – supplied a delicious catered meal, tested our wit in a rousing game of Launch trivia and surprised us with Apple iPads. Again we counted our blessings and shared with those less fortunate by contributing to a toy drive benefiting our client the Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County.
From the Launch family to yours, we wish you a Happy Holiday season and a healthy, prosperous 2011! Click here to view our holiday card. Season’s Greetings!

There are more than 27 million businesses registered in the U.S. For the past 30 years, Inc. magazine annually ranks the 5000 fastest-growing private companies. Launch is excited to have made the 2010 list. Officially we are #3523, but what’s in a number?
In the words of Jane Berentson, Editor, Inc. magazine, “More than ever, this year’s list is a testament to the creativity, resilience and tenacity of America’s top entrepreneurs.”
For Launch, on behalf of my partners Diane Seimetz and David Wilgus, I’d like to thank our creative, dedicated staff for all their great work and recognize our special roster of clients and the mutually successful relationships we have with those talented professionals.
Thank you also to Jane and Inc. It’s an honor just to be nominated. But it’s even better to actually make “the list.”
