While there are not any movie kiosk machine franchises in the United States, as of March 2015, DVDNow is a prominent company that offers movie kiosk machines to those who want to be a business owner; other companies known for their movie kiosks, such as Redbox, do not offer such business opportunities. DVDNow offers movie rentals and purchases, and each kiosk is independently owned.
DVDNow benefits potential business owners by requiring low start-up costs, and each owner can determine what movies go into the machine. Therefore, the owner can benefit from offering popular movies in the kiosk, thus increasing maximizing sales. In addition, the business owner can still hold another job since the kiosk typically does not require anybody to run it.
