In the late 1970s, Corley had a restaurant with “tasty food and nice service” before the first Dave & Buster’s opened in Dallas in 1982. According to the business’ website, David Corriveau ran an “outrageous location for fun and gaming” close by.

Customers would frequent both locations, so the business owners collaborated to open the first Dave & Buster in Dallas, fusing food and arcade games.

According to the company’s history, Dave’s name was first because he prevailed in a coin flip. Before selling the company to a private equity firm in 2007, the two ran it as co-CEOs for several years.

In 2015, Corriveau passed away at the age of 63.

In 2014, Dave & Buster’s, which operates 150 locations around the US, went public. The restaurant is well-known for its “Eat Drink, Play and Watch” model, which mixes TVs, arcade games, and a full-service bar with a kitchen.
