A Vision Born from Necessity
“Our journey began with a passion for magazines and a realization of the impact that COVID-19 had on the availability of physical print media in commercial spaces.” CEO Scott T. Janney envisioned a solution that would cater to the changing preferences of consumers in the digital age while addressing pain points in the waiting room experience. And so, Magazine Jukebox was born.
