Small businesses are the backbone of our economy and the lifeblood of our neighborhoods.

BOOMBOX combines the successful features of popup shops and festival booths to provide innovative transitional retail spaces at affordable prices. BOOMBOX is a prefabricated, modular kiosk installed in high volume public spaces to provide nomadic retail opportunities for entrepreneurs and community activators. The BOOMBOX kiosks are integrated into the urban infrastructure and retailers have the potential to range from commercial services to civic community-based resources and provide new venues for art, architecture, and commerce in a short term model.
