A great article from The Washington Post tells a bit of the history of Redbox, as well as some new expansion numbers.
The article mentions a few statistics:
- Redbox’s largest market is Washington, with over 350 kiosks in operation
- Redbox currently has over 3000 kiosks operating throughout the country
- By the end of 2007, Redbox plans to have over 9,100 locations – WOW!
It also talks about how Redbox stacks up against its competition – such as Blockbuster and Netflix. An interesting read for sure.
At this pace, Redbox will have the most locations of any DVD rental company very soon. The future looks bright.
