Guests and customers can see themselves in the reflective magic mirror screen prior to striking a pose.

What the brand looks for in a The Best Magic Mirror franchisee

How much time do you have?
You can run your business either full-time, part-time or evenings and weekends.

However, the brand is confident that in years 2, 3 and 4 you will be glad you invested in the business.
Do you have management and leadership skills?
Money is necessary, but it is not enough to succeed as a franchisee. Successful franchisees must be great operators and also know how to manage a business and lead a team of employees.
