Description of franchise system
Snappy Snaps - is a fast developing franchise.
Founded in 1983, the stores are the ultimate place to visit for all photographic and digital needs.
The retail chain has been awarded 'High Street lab of the Year' for the seventh time, by the world's number one weekly photo magazine "Amateur Photographer".
Since it was founded in 1983, Snappy Snaps has become one of the leading UK retail franchises.
With over 25 years experience in the UK High Street and 135 plus stores nationwide, Snappy Snaps, the Photo & Digital Specialists, are at the forefront of the photography market as well as one of the UK’s most successful franchise models.
The concept and offering from Snappy Snaps has changed and evolved considerably since its initial launch. Although Snappy Snaps started primarily as a photographic development lab, a service still offered to this day, the franchise has built its operation to include a whole host of commercial, interior and personalized printing services, catering for professional photographers, businesses and individual consumer needs.
Snappy Snaps offers cutting-edge printing techniques, superb customer care, and a diverse range of services, such as real photos from digital cameras and film in one hour; photos onto CD, photo restoration and manipulation, poster printing, T-shirts and gifts plus much more.
Firstly, the franchisees want and need the mutual
support of other franchisees and a strong, well-resourced franchisor to back
them up whenever necessary.
Secondly, the franchisor wants eager, committed franchisees who will operate the established franchise formula to expand the business and enable it to continue to invest in the network.
Last, but never least, the end-customer will enjoy having the very best in professional advice, personal attention and service, which only comes from dealing with a highly motivated, owner-operated business.
Snappy Snaps has become one of the leading UK retail franchises since it was founded in 1983. The two founders, Don Kennedy and Tim MacAndrews, were experienced franchisees when they created this business and remain totally committed to franchising. We are in no doubt that for any franchise to be really successful, each party must be able to benefit from it.
We aim to satisfy all our customer's photographic needs to enable them to enjoy their photos more than ever before. We like to work closely with our franchisees and encourage as much interaction between them as possible.
As well as organizing regular meetings, focus groups and conferences, we produce a weekly newsletter to help everyone keep up to date with what is happening within the group as well as across our industry.
