These are unsettling days in the jukebox business. Joel Friedman and I and the entire Enco family would like to express our concern for all that operators are going through since Ecast announced it would shut down its operation on March 1. Thankfully, there now appears to be a reasonable solution to allow the effected operators to keep their locations up and running.
Now is a good time for operators to consider dusting off their old CD jukeboxes. It’s important to remember that CD jukes allow operators to stay in complete control of their locations. Recent events remind us just how precious a commodity independence is in this business. And don’t forget, all the music that locations want to hear in their establishments is still readily available on compact disc.
Enco continues to support CD jukeboxes, not only because it’s our business, but because we believe operators are the best at servicing their locations. We share with operators the increasingly old-fashioned values of independence and personal relationships that are the bedrock of good route operation.
We believe this could be a “back to the future” moment. CD is a viable and valuable option during this time of transition. Now more than ever it makes sense to put this equipment back on the street and back to work on YOUR route. Please visit encosystems.net or call us on 866-CDJUKEBox (866-235-8532). We look forward to discussing how we can help you refurbish an old CD juke.
