Magazine Jukebox is currently contracted to be fully operational in thousands of businesses by the end of the year, a contract with Choice Hotels International Inc. pushing the number to over 6,000 individual locations. The COVID-19 of 2020 changed the world and inspired many new advancements and innovations in the technology world, including Magazine Jukebox’s digital magazine platform.
