About Us

 

 Escape was founded by Mike Jones and Jim Wolfe in 2000 as a result of a conversation over a BBQ brisket in Mike's home in the Fort Worth area.  Mike and Jim were working for American Airlines at the time.  As a Y2K initiative and a means to a graceful exit, they planned a business to build small, Mom and Pop businesses.  It was after some discussion that they learned that there were several projects that needed to be built for the company.  What started out as a way to build one 100 room hotel, one golf course, and one 100K square foot gun facility has morphed into the Imperial Poinciana Project.  As it is with EMG, family is most important., and the business reflects that.
