No. Franchisees will be family-oriented people who will employ experienced photographers. You’ll concentrate on managing the business and motivating your team.
A receptionist is required to greet customers and set the scene for a good experience. As well as a photographer, a sales person is also essential. As a franchisee, you may be able to fill this role yourself, initially, taking on another sales person as the business grows.
Our full investment details are laid out in our franchise prospectus which we can send to you. As you’ll need premises a large proportion of the investment covers the set up and location costs. The pack will break down the projections of income for you too so you can get a real feel for what potential POP! Brings to you.
Once your studio is set up and your team is in place, there really is nothing stopping you from taking bookings and getting started.
While the POP! Studios business formula has considerable earnings potential, your actual turnover and profits will still be largely dependent on your own effort and tenacity, and your adherence to our prescribed methodology. No guarantee is made that you will achieve these figures.
You are expected to limit your marketing to your defined area where possible. Whenever your advertising might extend beyond your catchment area (i.e. with radio advertising), you will be required to consult with your Franchise Manager, who may be able to help you arrange collaboration with neighbouring POP! Studios locations.
We are seeking franchisees for locations across the UK. However, some locations have already been allocated. Your chosen location must be agreed with the franchisor and retains the right to allocate territories as it deems appropriate. Please note: you will be asked to carry out an evaluation of your proposed location as part of the application process.
The Programme begins with Management Training, which covers the running of the business, as detailed in the Franchise Manual. The Franchise Management Team will work for up to five days with you and your staff during the pre- and post-opening period.This will include personalised business coaching and help to further develop your staff management, customer service and business management skills.
The term is set for five years. You have a right to renew the agreement for an additional period of five years if your franchise business has been operated in a satisfactory manner, and in accordance with the other conditions as set out in the Franchise Legal Agreement.
We’ve detailed what the initial investment covers which includes a large working capital of £30,000, which is more than enough to get you started and getting those sales in.
None whatsoever. We absolutely encourage it!
