Your location is vital to the success of your business.  If your location is close to your target market, visible to customers, and surrounded by complimentary businesses, you will do great.  But having a prime location doesn’t mean much if you aren’t making the most out of your business real estate.  Here are a few companies that have maximized the potential of their business locations—i.e., the most sales-per-square-foot.

Apple’s retail stores are relatively new.  Its first store opened in 2001. Over the years, Apple has quickly rose to the top, becoming the most successful retail location in the country.  Throughout its 372 stores, its average sales-per-square-foot is $6,050. 


Tiffany & Co.

Diamonds are pricey, so it’s no surprise that Tiffany’s store locations have some of the highest sales-per-square-foot in the country—$3,017.  Tiffany has 260 stores throughout the states, and due to its ongoing success it plans to open 9 more within the next year.
