Ginger is the female founder and CEO of the experiential hospitality group, Ginger Companies, LLC, which includes the brands Escape Rooms Live, Kick Axe Throwing, and THRōW Social. A former high school mathematics teacher, Ginger spent most of her adult life teaching students calculus, statistics, and acting as the high school’s competitive Mathletes coach. After an early retirement, she discovered her entrepreneurial spirit.
Ginger is responsible for opening the first escape rooms in Washington, D.C., in 2014, as well as the first axe-throwing bar in the world in New York City in 2017. Her newest concept, THRōW Social, which combines unique backyard-style games with food, libations, and live music, has been dubbed the ‘Golden Ticket” of Eatertainment and is receiving great acclaim in Washington, D.C., and Delray Beach, Florida. Ginger recently was awarded Best Female Entrepreneur in Consumer Services for 2022.
All of Ginger’s venues are like boutique hotels, with her axe-throwing bars immersing you in a Canadian Lodge, while her THRōW Social locations whisk you away to tropical Palm Beach. Her escape rooms have been deemed “the Disney World of Escape Rooms.” Ginger’s brands have been featured on the TODAY Show, CNN, and Vice, and in such publications as TIME magazine, Fast Company, The Wall Street Journal, and The New York Times, among many others.
