FRANK, JUSTIN, DREW, ETHAN, JASON, AMY
Well 2020 is almost in the books. For many (including myself) there is a very audible sigh of relief. In January and February of 2020, Mobile Room Escape and Mobile Axe Throwing were off to their most busy and successful year yet. None of our team thought that the MEME’s going around Facebook about our most beloved beer served with a lime wedge (Corona) would bring our families, our business, and our nation to a screeching halt.
In escape rooms, participants are constantly thrown a curve ball and must work together to turn “lemons” into “lemonade”. The team of seven at Mobile Room Escape and Mobile Axe Throwing turned to our Team Building acronym “L.O.C.K.” which stands for “Leadership, Overcoming Obstacles, Communication, and Kindness” to make the appropriate changes to our small business as the world changed around us. Our entire team put on a new set of hats this year to help build and grow our company for years to come.
Amy, our sales director, took over Leadership of our marketing from Justin to help us reach out to all customers about our progress. Amy turned our escape room and axe throwing company into a full on Mobile Adventure Company specializing in immersive events.
With the lack of in-person events, Justin helped us to Overcome Obstacles by turning his focus to creating our New Virtual Escape Room Game which would prove to be our most popular attraction of the year.
Frank, our head game master for Mobile Room Escape, took our previous “cleaning guide” and turned it into a dynamic “Health and Safety Program”. Frank did his research to gather the scientific information on disease control and prevention, researched and secured cleaning supplies, and Communicated to all our crew about our more vigorous health and safety procedures.
Ethan, our head axe master, found himself super busy creating Mobile Racing Challenge, our newest socially distanced attraction featuring high speed remote control cars.
Drew and Brandon held down the fort keeping our clients safe and comfortable as our live events went back into action in July.
As the owner of the company, I found my role changing by having more direct contact with our clients than I had in years past. While some of these conversations were difficult to have (Postponing of birthdays, cancelling of conventions, and pausing camp field trips) it truly was a pleasure to do what I enjoy doing most-creating relationships with people. What touched me the most was the majority of our clients were more concerned about how we were doing as a small business than their own personal events. Your Kindness and caring for our business is what motivated myself and the entire team to keep working, building, and creating lasting memories for you.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for remaining positive and supporting travel, the arts, small business and live events. We look forward to paying it back in 2021.
Happy New Year from all of us to you,
President of Mobile Adventure Company
