Apply Now!!!

To all students participating in the HUSTLE Competition:   We are immediately opening phase I of the competition. (This is a separate and additional competition to the grand prize). 

Phase I is a new phase that allows all student groups to compete for $10,000 in prize money paid in cash. The location contest ends on November 21.



Starting this Monday, October 10, 2022, teams and individuals will be able to approach venues within 60 miles of USF. The team that gets the most venues to accept the Just Baked Kiosk placements will pay $5,000 in cash. The two teams that come in 2nd and 3rd will each receive $2,500 in cash.  


For a venue to qualify, the venue must sign off on the placement acceptance form attached at the bottom of the page. The panel of judges will access these venues, and the top 40-80 kiosks placements will be used by the two teams selected for the final stage of the HUSTLE competition. 

For a venue to qualify, they must agree to place a kiosk inside their venue in a prominent location. The kiosk should always be:

  • Consumer-facing

  • Commits to keeping kiosk indoors 

  • The kiosk can fit into doorway with ease 

  • High consumer traffic turnover

  • Willing to install the necessary power requirements for the kiosk to operate. 


     **Certain venues can host multiple kiosks depending on size. So some of the bigger venues can count towards multiple kiosk placements. 

We always advise asking for the decision-maker at the venue to save time. The decision maker will likely be either the owner, the general manager, or the person in charge of vending or food services.


Top venue locations include:


  • Colleges (dorm rooms, library, student center, and other high-traffic areas).   

  • Hospitals 

  • Military bases

  • Hotels

  • Casinos

  • Amusement parks 

  • Rest areas 

  • Assisted living facilities

  • Museums 

  • And other destination locations!


Phase I of the competition starts Monday, October 10, and ends on November 21, 2022.  


The winning teams will be announced shortly after the Thanksgiving Holiday after the judges with the venues verify all results.  


Please feel free to utilize the ART / Just Baked team to help you answer questions and assist you in closing venue locations. The team must get to the venue's decision-maker, follow up, and get the contract executed.  


Best of luck!!!
