Fotomat - Failure Museum

Founded in the 1960s and listed on the NYSE in 1977, Fotomat was an American retail chain of photo development drive-through kiosks located primarily in shopping center parking lots. At its peak around 1980, there were over 4,000 Fotomats throughout the United States. After the introduction of digital cameras, overnight service eventually became obsolete and Fotomat switched to online digital imaging at Fotomat.com where users could edit and store their images. This site ceased operations September 2009. Many former Fotomat huts still exist, having been converted into drive-thru coffee kiosks.
