It was tough to find the finance to start a new business but with the support from Giggle Booth we were able to get started in this profitable industry.
(PRWEB UK) 24 February 2013
Giggle Booth began trading just 3 years ago in Dorset as a family business, now employing a number of people across the country and with a growing franchise network it is set to become a global business by the end of 2013.
Despite difficult trading conditions, the company which offers photo booth hire for events including weddings, parties and corporate events has reported extraordinary results showing a 60% increase in business against the previous year.
In 2012 with demand for its service high, Managing Director Dave Gillard embarked on developing a franchise system for the business, which resulted in 2 franchisees going live during 2012. The company have been talking to a number of people interested in becoming franchisees, and interest has spanned the world "We are absolutely delighted with the success we've achieved with the business, and have been very lucky with the people who have joined us as franchisees"
The company offers a low cost franchise opportunity which even includes a buy back promise, and one of the companies unique and exclusive photo booths
Franchisee Pete Cave, who took on Giggle Booth Warwickshire as a franchise in August 2012 is positive about the success of his new business "It was tough to find the finance to enter in to this venture but with the support from family, the bank & Giggle Booth we got the finance to get started. It has been a far cheaper option to start a business as well as the fact that we have benefitted hugely from the technical expertise, the advertising and the branding that Giggle Booth have provided for us. We gain bookings through both them and ourselves so this has helped get our business of the ground running. They set up our websites, provided advertising material and helped to promote us"
The Warwickshire franchisee will have completed over 60 events in his first year, and is already looking to the future to expand his territory with the company after a record breaking recent wedding fayre where Pete and his team secured a number of new bookings for 2013.
The franchise isn't a one trick pony though, franchisees Justine and Leah Marlow from Hampshire took on the Hampshire and Surrey territories in December 2012 "We met with Dave (founder of Giggle Booth) and discussed the franchise option. We were attracted by the simplicity of the procedure of owning a franchise, the exposure the company already had, and the package which included supplies to get us started, full training and support and of course the booth itself. We were also guaranteed bookings to get us started and continuous referrals. Since signing up, the continued help and support has been great, with manuals so we have a constant reference, someone on the end of the phone, and the great feeling of owning your own business but with the support of experts in the field helping you succeed" said Leah. Justine and Leah started with a number of bookings which Giggle Booth HQ had secured for them which has given them at least £30,000 worth of business to start trading with.
With interest to join the company as a franchisee coming in from Worldwide, the future looks bright for this fun loving company who are set to shake up the industry this year with a number of innovations and developments.
Investment levels range from just £8,995 and interested parties should make contact with the Giggle Booth franchise office on 01202 835610 or by visiting the company website at http://www.thephotoboothfranchise.co.uk
