More Than a Puzzle

For Matthew Baysinger, the fireball CEO of Breakout KC, his fast-paced escape rooms are more than just a puzzle. “It’s about the opportunity to share an experience that is fun and entertaining with other people.”

Fun For Everyone

Breakout KC has expanded to ten locations in Kansas City and the surrounding area, emphasizing it’s family-friendly experience and team building. With a new experience every time, Breakout KC offers many clients the opportunity to combine team-building exercises, with a fun group activity outside of the office! Every location has a different theme, and no two rooms are the same.

Banking on Escape

From the beginning, Baysinger and cofounder Ryan Heinrich’s entrepreneurial attitude drew them to Equity Bank. “I was impressed by their intentionality,” said Baysinger. “They didn’t come out just to collect data. They really wanted to learn about me and Ryan and our concept.” He said that he and Ryan bring an entrepreneurial work ethic and desire to the company, but Equity Bank has been instrumental in helping to educate them on “how to do it right.” “Thanks to Equity Bank’s financial expertise,” Baysinger said, “we are able to focus our efforts as CEO and COO on the big picture items and move forward as one of the leaders in the escape room industry.”
