Why Small Businesses Matter
Shop small, do big things for your community
Why Small Businesses Matter puts a spotlight on the local merchants who donate their time, talent, goods, and services for the betterment of our community. The shop local movement spreads virally as local businesses who are “tagged” have the opportunity to share their story!
You're IT Mind Factory Escape Games!
Three questions with Dave Hennessey, founder of Mind Factory Escape Games.
Why did you start your business?
We started Mind Factory because we love to tell stories! Mind Factory is a universe of interconnected escape missions, stories, and interactive experiences designed to thrill, entertain, and engage customers of all ages and backgrounds.
What is your best-selling product/service?
Our best-selling products right now are escape games. You can see just how immersive our escape games are in the accompanying photo. That's an actual photo of the inside of our popular game, Invasion. Top-tier set design, intricate storytelling, and Broadway-caliber lighting come together to provide an exhilarating one-hour experience.
Have you "reimagined" your small business?
We've reimagined Mind Factory by expanding to digital content - which will hit our website soon. Using this content, customers can engage with the universe we launched in our escape missions. Digital puzzles, logic games, found footage horror films, and an interactive map of our fictional town - Fairport, CT - will round out this ground-breaking experience that doesn't exist anywhere else in the world.
