Welcome to the website that’s all about how to own a Redbox kiosk machine.
It’s not a franchise, but there is an application process that business owners can undertake to try and get a Redbox machine at their place of business.
What are the requirements for business owners applying for a Redbox DVD kiosk at their location?
Redbox requires that interested business owners supply them with the following information as a first step in the application process:
Average daily traffic (transactions):
“If you have any additional questions, comments regarding this issue please contact us at 866-redbox3 (866-733-2693) to avoid any further delay in resolving your matter,” says Redbox, who sent me the email from [email protected] after I chatted online with redbox Customer Care via Redbox.com.
However, that doesn’t give us much detail about what their minimum requirements are for getting a Redbox machine.
Reader feedback about getting a Redbox kiosk machine…
Not sure if this comment came from an actual Redbox machine business renter, but here is what one person wrote to me about the process requirements:
“Hello Interested investors…
RedBox is a company that will pay you a commission based monthly income. Contrary to some beliefs RedBox is not a franchise style business. As a owner of a business you must have some prereqs before considering to apply for a storefront RedBox unit.
Some of the needs you must have: 50,000 worth in foot traffic (that’s daily traffic…), visibility, a prime location to place unit (around 12sq. feet).
If approved, a commission based on sales will be paid to you by RedBox.
So, what does it cost you? Well the unit will not cost you, what will is your location real estate, and you might need to work out a deal for power the unit. Any problems with the unit will be taken care of by the mobile techs of RedBox.
What does this mean to most…
Big box/ anchor stores will be the first ones to have these units Example: WalMart, Krogers, Ralphs, 7-11, and such. Don’t be discouraged if you can pull off attracting heavy traffic, well it is in the favor of both RedBox and you… Once again we see LOCATION, Location, location… hope this helps…”
Even if you don’t have the foot traffic described from that anonymous person who left the comment, go ahead and apply anyway, and please come back and leave a comment about your experience! Thanks!
