Dmitrii Makienko owns 3 escape rooms in Barcelona, Spain and 4 escape rooms in Madrid, Spain.
I was so impressed after my first escape room experience that I craved to do something like that by myself. Opening the first escape room was simple and fast. After launching and first reviews of the customers, I realized that this industry is very relatable to me. I love escape rooms because they give you unique emotions that you cannot get anywhere else. You are like a hero in a blockbuster movie. This fact holds me tight so I’m sure I want to continue making new adventures.
The most memorable was the day when we realized that tomorrow we have an announced grand opening. Radio and TV were already invited, invitations to the guests were already sent, but the escape room was not ready yet. We made a quantum leap that night and finished everything on time. I was so surprised by my team and myself, we could not believe that we had done it!
We have spent a lot of time reading and analyzing our lease and other documentation, like lions we bargained and negotiated for better conditions, and our perseverance gave us great results afterwards. We have been working at our location for three months and learned 90% of the cases, which can hardly affect the quality of the service. We had a lot of valuable insights to teach our employees.
I defiantly would buy equipment sets made by professionals like Komnata. It helps to save a lot of priceless time, which you pay for from the first day of the lease.
I would say that it is quite a challenge to be an HR, accountant, marketer and a “good guy for neighbors”. I have a silent investor in a couple of my rooms, so I also have a responsibility to fulfill my obligations to him. But this is what makes your work in escape rooms great – you do not have any time to “relax”, you have to be ready for anything all the time, and it is absolutely fantastic!
I have my own business. We install electric in-floor heating.
