With a vision to bring people together through shared play, Electric Playbox uses best-in-class technology to create immersive digital adventures for people to experience with their friends and family. Founded by Will Dean – the man behind Tough Mudder – and David Spindler – conceived and launched the Tough Mudder Bootcamp franchise – Electric Playbox is based on the belief that technology is meant to connect people, rather than drive them apart.
As technologically induced social isolation grows, our mission is to make screen time social again. It’s not just about having fun; shared play brings people together, creates bonds and reminds us of what it means to be human. The ever-increasing social isolation caused by technology is becoming more serious, but Electric Playbox aims to flip this on its head. We’re aspiring to make technology work for us collectively, using it to create social experiences that foster positively impactful habits.
The opportunity to join Electric Playbox lets you connect with a fast-paced, dynamic business led by founders who are experts in company growth and franchise development. This is a chance to be part of a business firmly committed to growing a world-renowned leisure brand with a significant investment return, making it a stand-out franchise opportunity.
Electric Playbox uses a business model based around templated processes in operations, marketing, technology and design. With an expert team to guide you through the initial site set-up, as well as providing ongoing support, you will be working with a turnkey business that will begin bringing you returns from day one.
In addition, tried and tested levers are available to you from the outset to drum up word of mouth referrals and vital repeat business, such as sending your customers a team photo after their Electric Playbox experience, enticing them to share using social media and messaging platforms, thus building your brand awareness completely free of charge to you!
The business is also wholly cashless, removing management hassles around processes, as well as end of day and traceability, ease of operation, and high financial security levels. Electric Playbox really delivers!
Finally, due to its diverse customer base, the Electric Playbox model works globally across different cultures and languages with minimal modifications.
WE OFFER IMMERSIVE DIGITAL ADVENTURES WITH FRIENDS!
Electric Playbox aims to mix up people’s socialising with something a little different: a fully immersive, digital, group adventure. Electric Playbox presents participants with an interactive digital room featuring projection mapping, touch screens, motion tracking and surround sound to enjoy a hyper-immersive 60-minute adventure.
Whether it’s being graded by aliens, searching for rare Martian minerals, or saving the queen’s corgis, at Electric Playbox, people come together through shared play. The ultimate goal is to make in real life screen time social again.
