Let Off Steam In ‘Das Breakroom.’ Business Allows You To Destroy Things For A Fee
Ever have a rough day at work and you want to let some steam off? You could break something but you’ll later be left with regret or a broken hand if you punch a wall.
What if there was a simpler way to let out that aggression and you wouldn’t have to worry about the clean up either?
A brand new Boise, ID company called ‘Das Breakroom’ allows patrons to wield a sledgehammer, baseball bat, or other “instruments of destruction” in a controlled environment.
Owner Tom Farrenkopf spoke with KBOI2 about his new business venture:
Here at Das Breakroom, our sole purpose is to provide a place for people to engage in recreational destruction. What we mean by that is come in and break stuff.
Patrons can break anything! Dishes, fax machines, vacuums, printers, computer monitors, copiers – You name it, they have it for you to break. Pricing varies per item that you want to break but the best part is you don’t have to worry about cleaning up afterwards.
The store opened up on Tuesday of last week (April 15) and already has rave reviews. Lindsey Shultz explains:
I was having a horrible week, and I found myself on the verge of tears and I was just pacing back and forth, like, ‘What am I going to do? I’m so frustrated right now,’ and I walked here and broke an entire box of stuff, and 10 minutes later, I felt perfect, fine.
This sounds like something we need in Albany! If there are any entrepreneurs out there, get cracking on this ASAP and help prevent things like this scene from Office Space from happening ever again
