Mystery District has officially turned ONE YEAR OLD this weekend! It’s amazing how far we’ve come and how much this company has grown just 365 days. And you know what? We owe it all to you! Without daring Agents willing to let a company send them on a mystery date where they don’t even know where they’re going until one hour beforehand, we wouldn’t be able to keep goin, workin, and reachin for new heights. For those of you who don’t know HQ or how this business got started, and in honor of our one year anniversary, we want to pull back the curtain a smidge and share with you some behind the scenes fun facts.
Mystery District was incorporated on June 9, 2017 by a girl who loved to plan fun dates for her boyfriend and friends…but was terrified to take the leap and start a company around this very premise. She loves DC and has an insatiable taste for organizing awesome experiences for friends and strangers alike. So it should’ve been a no brainer, right? The thing is, starting a business seemed like something only more established, successful people do. But everyone has to start somewhere! With some serious encouragement from the boyfriend, Mystery District finally crossed the threshold from passion project to LLC!
Now that it’s been one year of standing up the business to see if it could walk, it’s now time to see if it can run. We’ve got a lot of exciting things in the works (which we’re not at liberty to announce yet, but will of course keep you posted). And we’re so excited to continue on this wild journey with all of you.
Before we go, we have one simple birthday request: if you’ve ever gone on a mystery date or thought of an idea for Mystery District, please share it with us. Message us on Facebook, Instagram (@mysterydistrict), Twitter (@MystDistDC), or via email (firstname.lastname@example.org). One of the best ways for us to improve as a business is to hear from you, the very people we’re planning mystery dates for.
So thank you to everyone who’s gone on a mystery date, signed up for one, passed the word of mystery along to a friend, written us a review (good or bad), or even expressed their support for the concept of our business. Thank you to each and everyone of you. Cheers to one year in the books and to many more to come!
