Meet Munzee Munday: The Munzee Marketplace!
Here at Munzee we’re constantly encouraging our players to meet and greet and build the personal relationships that make this game so great. Over the next few weeks we’ll be showcasing members of Team Munzee so our players can get to know us a bit better. So each Munday (see what we did there?) check in to see a new member of Team Munzee and you decide if you trust the game in our hands. Team Munzee is a bit busy this week moving into the new office, continuing birthday celebrations and just staying cool in this Texas summer heat. So instead of showcasing an actual Munzee employer this week, we’re showing off the latest addition to the team, The Munzee Marketplace!
Name and Title:
I’m the Munzee Marketplace!
Where are you from?
Right in the heart of Munzee Headquarters in McKinney, TX. I live at 111 E. Virginia which McKinney residents will know as the former Garrett Art Gallery. Unfortunately after 29 years in downtown McKinney the Art Gallery had to close it’s doors in April 2014. Although we were sad to see it go, we’re excited to continue to honor the downtown McKinney spirit and make the space thrive.
Tell us about yourself!
What started as a front for our QR based scavenger hunt app, the Munzee Marketplace has evolved into so much more. Featuring Breadwinners sandwiches and many more notable DFW area goods, the Marketplace brings local fare to a new level. Munzee is eager to become a staple in the McKinney community. Munzee has something for everyone, even more so now. Whether you are a Munzee player or you work in downtown McKinney, the Marketplace is here to serve your needs. Looking for a quick grab and go snack on your lunch break? Interested in a compelling, competitive smartphone app with an international fan base? Stop by the Munzee Marketplace and we’d be happy to help.
How long have you worked for Munzee?
I’m a bit new… Technically I haven’t even started yet, but we’re hoping to change that very soon! The doors to the Munzee Marketplace will open soon and just today Team Munzee started moving into the new office space! Although the tech guys are huffing a bit about the manual labor, we’re all very excited to move into the much larger (and more appealing) space!
How did you discover Munzee?
Really, Munzee discovered me. What started as simply a need for more space at MHQ turned into the something so much bigger. Team Munzee saw a need for downtown McKinney to have a grab and go convenience store. Although there are a number of great places to dine downtown, it can get pricey for the business owners and employees downtown to eat out every day. The Munzee Marketplace is dedicated to offering a quick, affordable bite to eat.
What do you enjoy most about Munzee?
Munzee, much like Downtown McKinney, is unique by nature. While it may not seem like a logical step for a QR based scavenger hunt app to open a Marketplace, Munzee isn’t interested in doing whats logical. We’re constantly looking at interesting new ways to shake things up and my creation is only the next in a long line of ideas coming to fruition!
What are some of your other hobbies?
- Serving the fine people of McKinney a tasty, yet affordable lunch.
- Getting Munzee players everything they need including game pieces, apparel and souvenirs.
- Providing Team Munzee with as much craft coffee as needed to keep them alert and focused on expanding the game!
