Also places that have many college students?
I am open to anywhere in the state will have time to physically see each location. Thanks for any help offered!
2 locations you should really check out -
1. The Irvine Spectrum entertainment center in Irvine CA. It is an outdoor entertainment shopping plaza that is a temple dedicated to the disposable income of the Upper Middle class south OC teenager. Great demographics, but the landlord, the Irvine Co., is a notorious ball-buster. UC- Irvine is in the city, but not close.

2.Kalidescope (sp?) shopping center in Mission Viejo, CA. This mall is so overrun with teenagers other businesses are leaving. good demos in the area and next to the Shops at Mission Viejo (AKA MV Mall) which is another location you may want to check out.

They aren't going to lease to any company that doesn't have significant cash and a demonstrated concept. The vast majority of the stores there are national chains.

Anyhow, all the high traffic areas are going to be rather expensive and the property management/owner is unlikely to rent to anybody that isn't experienced in retail. Its best to look at places where you actually have a chance of getting a lease, of course these areas aren't going to have as much traffic.

Can you do it from a kiosk? Many malls are filling their space with kiosks these days. I think most last about 8 months.

Those are reserved for foreigners selling lotion...and made for TV products.
