So it is no secret that Apple retail stores are incredibly successful. Currently, Apple has north of 360 retail locations, with each one generating around $49 million annually. That is a crazy number. $49 million per store. Further, all Apple Stores combine for around $18 billion in-store revenue each year.What’s even more, Apple stores took more revenue per square foot than any other retailer in the world.
Clearly, Apple is doing something right. According to MBA.com – also the source of the below infographic – “Apple brings in astounding amounts of revenue from all over the globe, and today it’s the most profitable public company in the world.” Although the graphic is a bit dated, it is from 2012, much of the statistics still hold true.

In that same time period, Apple Store’s retail sales grew by 38%. On an individual level, the average consumer electronic retail store posts about $206,000 in revenue per employee.
