Coke claims there are 52,000 Freestyle machines in service?
Pre-pandemic, one of the McDonald's stores I frequented has plenty of seating, a Playplace,
a full size SSBB, and does well over $3 million a year. When things are busy there is always a line 2 or 3 deep at the SSBB. I'm imagining guests standing in front of a Freestyle machine screwing around with their phones trying to make the app work and trying to decide what
exotic drink they want to create. The line will stretch back to the kiosks.
Given the transaction counts at the typical McDonald's it would take three, maybe four Freestyle machines to replace one of today's SSBBs.
