Rollout vs. roll out

  •  
  • As a noun or adjective, rollout is one word. Some publications, especially British ones, prefer the hyphenated roll-out, but the one-word form is well established and fairly common even in the U.K. When you need a term meaning to implement a product, service, or policy, use the two-word phrasal verb roll out. Rollout doesn’t work as a verb.
