You know there was a location at Florida Mall for 15 years. If that can go for that long, it will do even better at Disney.

I did not know that. It's hard for me to believe that many people want to buy overpriced, low quality candy.

Still, the Disney Springs location will be far more expensive, so they will need an increase in sales to make up the difference, and there are much better options at Disney Springs for anyone looking to buy something sweet. I'll still be surprised if it lasts long-term.

The main business at the M&M store isn’t selling candy, it’s merchandise. The personalised ones and the larger range of colours are good, but the store doesn’t really sell “regular” M&Ms. It’s the same as the Coke store, they don’t really sell much cola, it’s all about merchandise or the special flavours (like Beverly) you can’t try elsewhere.

No, I know that. I assume the majority of their sales are from the personalized M&Ms. I meant it was hard for me to believe that many people actually want personalized cheap candy, but I guess they do. It seems like a tremendous waste of money. Obviously they sell some merchandise too, but I would be surprised if it wasn't the personalized/different color M&Ms that drive the business because I don't see that many people wanting M&Ms merchandise.

I'm still betting this store is closed before the end of the decade. Coke is a bit different because, as you said, a lot of it is trying special flavors you can't get elsewhere. The different color M&Ms aren't the same thing, at least in my mind. It's still fundamentally the same candy. But who knows? I could be wildly wrong and this store is a massive success.

Again, the candy isn’t the main product, the merchandise is. Same at the Coke store.
The personalised M&Ms are a relatively new addition, but the Florida Mall store was there for 15 years, Vegas for 23 years and London for 9 years. These stores sell plenty of merchandise.

The M&Ms store has survived since 1997 on the Vegas strip where the rent/cost has to be in the ballpark of Disney Springs.
