Super Convenience No More

Famima Glendale, 2007-2008. RIP.

I can tell you the REAL reason Famima Glendale closed. The animation studio where I work wrapped up the first season of the Mr. Men Show, which put about 40 Famima ultra-consumers on hiatus. Less than a month later, Famima announced it was closing. Coincidence? I did some back-of-the-napkin calculations and figured that our crew spent, conservatively, at least $3500 a month at Famima.

I wouldn't be surprised if another Famima opens up in the Americana in six months. I wonder what became of their amazingly competent automatic coffee machine?
