Redbox is a self-contained, self-serve movie rental system. Redboxes are located a number of different retail locations across the country. You can find the dispensable unit that resembles an old telephone booth in malls, major retailers such as Wal-Mart and Walgreens. Redboxes can also be found in McDonald’s restaurants who founded the system back in 2004. Consumers who want to rent a movie can reserve one on line or simply go to the Redbox location search the titles that are available and rent it using a credit card then take it home to watch. You can get your own Redbox franchise by contacting the company.

Turn on your computer, open a Internet browser and go to the company website (see Resources).

Scroll to the bottom of the page and click “Jobs.” A new window will open up with the title “Browse Open Jobs.”

Scroll to the bottom of the window that opened up and click on “Request a Redbox” on the next page click “Business Owners Start Here” button. This takes you to a web-based application to complete. Redbox requires that your current business serves “at least 15,000 customers” on a weekly basis. If your business serves that number of people, complete the rest of the form and submit it to the company.
