I ran into a funny news article on Redbox today, out of the great state of Kansas! From KansasCity.com:
Maybe beige boxes would pass muster
Redbox wants to bring its DVD vending machines to Overland Park, but city officials arenâ€™t fans of the machinesâ€™ bright-red color.
Six McDonaldâ€™s in south Overland Park are looking into adding the Redbox machines to the outside of their restaurants. But when the cityâ€™s planning commissioners reviewed Redboxâ€™s plans last week, they denied them.
In a city that encourages developers to use earth tones, commissioners said the machinesâ€™ bright red canopy and signs would not get their approval.
Redbox can appeal to the City Council or install the machines inside the restaurants, a move that wouldnâ€™t require council approval.
Great stuff… who would have thought a problem facing Redbox would be the color of their machine?
