Escape Hunt is the largest escape room business in the world and a global leader in experiential entertainment. Since it started in 2013, Escape Hunt has opened nearly 50 locations across 27 countries. Together, these sites are home to 250 of the most exciting escape room games around the world. There are currently 4 Escape Hunt franchises in the U.S. In May 2017, the founder sold the business to a group of British investors familiar with franchising and brand licensing who took the company public on the London Stock Exchange (Symbol: ESC).
New corporate leadership is focused on developing the brand, better supporting the franchise network, more differentiated game creation, brand marketing and entry into more specific, exciting and proprietary escape room concepts. Just announced is an exclusive licensing agreement with the BBC to create a Doctor Who Escape Room. Licensed game content of well-known entertainment brands gives Escape Hunt, and its franchisees, a sustainable competitive advantage. A renewed focus to penetrate the U.S. market is underway.
