Company Overview

After years spent developing video games, Scott Novis came up with a new way to enjoy them: mobile video game theaters. He and his brother Chris built the first GameTruck and used it to throw a birthday party for a friend in 2006. Two years later, he began franchising the concept. Each GameTruck mobile video game theater is equipped with multiple flatscreen televisions and a variety of video games and consoles.
