"We have proudly been purchasing Gilbarco equipment for 20 years; their equipment is made in America and they have always been our first choice to provide superior turnkey solutions for our stores," said Max Alvarez, president of Sunshine Gasoline. "The decision to go with Applause TV was easy after seeing how professionally Outcast Media manages content to drive our in-store sales. We are excited to blanket the Miami market with Applause TV and really promote the Sunshine brand."
