Michael and Sara Dodd, founders of Game Plan Entertainment, wanted to create a company that offered a unique, fun, and interactive gaming experience for people of all ages. It all started in Houston of May 2010, when Michael’s love for gaming led to the idea of renting out video game stations and interactive gaming for parties and events. This began as a side business as Michael worked as a mechanical engineer. Classic Arcade games were soon added to the mix for off-site events, and from there the company began to grow.
Sara jumped on board from the beginning and uses her experience as an elementary school teacher to interact with kids (and adults) at various events, coaching them on how to play the games, and making sure everyone is having fun. She enjoys the interactions and connections made with all of the different types of people from the various events.
Since moving the headquarters to Austin in June of 2012, Michael and Sara decided to add something new to the mix – a private arcade where people could have on-site parties and access to all of the games set to free-play in an exclusive setting. Kids and adult birthday parties have been a raving success; corporate happy hours and team-building events have been a hit; and holiday parties, bar and bat mitzvah receptions, wedding festivities, and more have been booking up quickly.
Game Plan Entertainment’s goal is to create a one-of-a-kind, memorable gaming experience with customer satisfaction as their #1 priority. Come see how this company can help with your next event or celebration!
