Brendon & Jennifer Harbron
Owners & Chief Operating Officer
During the summer of 2015, the Harbron family traveled to another US state for a quick family get away. Being avid adventurers, they always like to try new things. They found an interesting ad for a place that enticed you to solve puzzles to try and find your way out of a locked room in an hour.
Having never heard of such an adventure, but being a huge game-loving family, they decided to try their hand at this new found game.
They quickly fell in love with the idea of the escape venue, and began the steps to design their own rooms and open a similar venue in Indiana. During the planning phase, they crossed paths with the Neals, joined forces, and have created what is known today as The Escape Room USA.
The past two years have been an amazing adventure! When we began this journey, the escape venue was new to the United States. We had no idea that what we thought would be a fun side-venture would soon turn into a prominent and exclusive escape venue. In just over two years, we have grown from one location and 7 employees, to two locations and over 60 employees. We have over 30,000 likes on Facebook, and are the lead in 5-star Trip Advisor ratings in Indianapolis Fun and Games.
The Escape Room USA is not just about solving puzzles and riddles to escape from a locked room in 60 minutes. People come to The Escape Room for a fun, interactive experience, and make memories and do life together in the process.
Over the course of the next 6 months, a third location will be opening in Columbus, Ohio. Brendon and Jennifer reside in Fishers, Indiana with their three teenage children. As owners of The Escape Room USA, Brendon is also officially the Chief Game Designer. Jennifer is the Chief Operating Officer and works to ensure that an exceptional customer service experience is lived out every day for each and every guest.
