Case Studies

The Pelican Group is constantly searching for the hottest new games and trends in order to improve our offering and our client's revenues.

National Jukebox Roll Out

We determined that several of the smaller markets did not support the level of usage necessary to warrant a high end video jukebox. We did, however, want to ensure for a consistent level of uniformity throughout all locations.

So we went to work with Touch Tunes to figure out a solution. We looked at various solutions and programs but nothing fit until we thought of a brand new idea for equipment manufacturers. We suggested revenue sharing with Touch Tunes.

Touch Tunes cooperated and was able to enter into a revenue sharing program that allowed for a digital jukebox in every store. Touch Tunes was able to average their revenue across all the markets so that the smaller less productive markets did not stand out as much.

The overall result was a profitable venture for the local operators, increased volume for the manufacturer and a solid solution for the chain that allowed every location to have a state of the art digital jukebox.

Your guest will be so much happier with innovative solutions that improve their visit that they will stay longer, purchase additional food & beverage and come back more often. Improving the overall vend management solution leads to a more conducive work environment which can lead to increased productivity and improved retention of employees.
