Fazbear Entertainment, Incorporated is the company that owns the establishments (namely pizza/entertainment venues) that players are employed under in many of the baseline Five Nights at Freddy's games. The company was founded and headed by Henry Emily and William Afton. According to the lore, the first of these establishments was Fredbear's Family Diner, but due to a tragic incident that happened there, it ended up closing down in 1983. In the same year of its closure, the owners decide to reform the place into Freddy Fazbear's Pizza. There is no known current owner of the company, as both of the former co-owners are now out of commission.
On the outside, they seem to be a well-known children's brand. But on the inside, they are a negligent, lazy, and greedy corporation and their company holds many dark secrets, some ranging back to their first year in operation. The company has been in and out of business a total of three times.

- During the Completion Ending of Freddy Fazbear's Pizzeria Simulator, the narrator, Tutorial Unit, mentions that Fazbear Entertainment has been dissolved and is now out of business. However, the accuracy of this statement cannot be ascertained, as the company appears to still exist in Five Nights at Freddy's: Help Wanted, as well as subsequent titles in the Five Nights at Freddy's series.
