Coinstar, owner of the uber-popular RedBox DVD machines that prompt many inquiries each day from customers hoping to get their own kiosks outside their own businesses, is taking a serious leap into the coffee kiosk business.

The Seattle’s Best Coffee brand already enjoys more than 50 of the strikingly new machines in cities like Seattle, San Francisco and Washington, D.C.

By the end of 2012, they expect about 500 of these coffee kiosks to be in operation, passing out that hot and piping and newly and freshly ground coffee to curious and caffeine-craving customers.

Can regular customers, business owners or individuals buy these coffee kiosks?

That’s the big question.

With the specialty coffees running from a buck to a buck-fifty for a 12-ounce cup, entrepreneurs can definitely spot the earnings potential per year for trying to get one of these franchises, just like folks have tried to get RedBox machines outside their stores for years now.

However, the targeted retail locations of these new coffee kiosks are approximately 50,000 mass merchants, supermarkets and drugstores, and each kiosk is expected to bring Coinstar approximately $11,000 to $12,000 each year in sales.

So business owners who want to try their hand at getting a coffee kiosk outside their businesses might do best to contact Coinstar via the same application process spelled out at the link above that the wannabe RedBox DVD machine owners take.

After all, this automated retail business is obviously the hot new thing, what with cupcake ATMs and everything, and it would behoove us to get in on the new trend.
