Probably one of the biggest advantages of relatively escape room business is lack of necessity to employ huge staff to operate it. And It is important to understand that because your team is not large, every employee has a significant effect on your project.

People from this checklist could be either employed, work with you as a contractor or just be included in your phone's contact list.
1. Game designer

Your escape room game design is the core of your business which determines a huge amount of concepts, budget, marketing policy, target audience etc.

It is usually necessary to consult or hire a lawyer for some time while preparing the grand opening of your escape room business.
