Our interactive dinner shows are set in the present day. Unlike other murder mystery dinner shows, here you will find no cheesy costumes, no recited campy dialogue and no hokey song and dance. Our performers are dressed just like everyone else, leaving all of the guests to suspect who is a part of the show and who is not. In many instances, guests are seated with the performers and don't even realize it until they die...the performers, that is! Our Detectives proceed to interrogate everyone and find clues as more characters die. At the end of the night, prizes are awarded to the Top Sleuth who solves the crime.

Ideal Qualities of a Franchisee:

  • Business Experience

"Owning my own franchise has been an incredible experience. Watching my show grow from the ground up has been so satisfying. It was quite a feeling of accomplishment after our first show was over, and audience members were walking out of our doors with huge smiles on their faces." - Marc Lessman - Executive Producer/Franchisee - Ventura, CA

"As the first Dinner Detective franchisee, I have been with the company from the beginning of its nationwide expansion. I had no idea what to expect, but Scott and his team have created an easy and smooth plan for opening a franchise, from beginning to end. The level of support from everyone involved is tremendous and invaluable." - Steve Wilder - Executive Producer/Franchisee - Denver and Colorado Springs, CO
