  • Cups sold for an average of $4.61 exceeding initial franchise expectations;
  • Hospitals, Museums, Malls, Family Fun Centers, High Schools and Universities were the best performing location categories;
  • The month’s top five performing kiosks were located in cold weather climates suggesting sales performance is non-seasonal;
