Chris Goodchild, founder of The Best Magic Mirrors, shares how the brand is set to take the franchise world by storm
I originally launched our photobooth business in 2015, prior to launching our British Franchise Association-accredited franchise in 2020.
What we have developed is a low-cost, high-reward mobile business that delivers a great lifestyle and is built on strong family and lifestyle values; we’ll show you how easy it is to achieve high earnings while loving what you do every day and being fully supported at all times.
Our combination of low management fees, taking a partnership approach with our franchisees, and our business coaching, account management, technical support and creative design services ensure we stand out in the wedding and events franchise market.
The industry is taking notice and we’re being recognised by our peers, too. We recently won an important industry award and were named the ‘Best Photobooth Experience in the UK’ in the Global Wedding Awards 2021, run by LUXLife magazine.
The demand keeps growing
2021 and 2022 are set to be the busiest years for the wedding market, due to the high demand for dates because of postponements due to the pandemic. In addition, there’s the £31.2bn events sector that also needs servicing.
With the addition of our virtual photobooths and memory mosaics, we are now welcoming clients from all over the world, which our franchisees will also benefit from. Born from the COVID-19 pandemic, this has proved to be a game-changer for the brand as we launch new and exciting virtual tech to service the demand and this hybrid event sector continues to grow.
The perfect franchisee
Fundamentally, we’re looking to partner with individuals who share our vision and passion for offering the best customer experience, while enjoying high earnings and lifestyle benefits. While experience in the wedding and events industry is not mandatory, we’re looking for operators with good business acumen and an ability to see the potential in commercial opportunities across online and face-to-face experiences.
Our franchise model is geared to return initial investments quickly and with our guidance and business development advice, there are many ways to showcase our products, including our newly launched virtual photobooths.
And to give you a head start, commission fees are waived for the first three months to help new franchisees become properly established.
Lauren Hill, The Best Magic Mirrors (Windsor)
Have you ever felt as though something has been missing from your career?
I was working in an industry which I enjoyed but I wasn’t seeing the results I wanted; I just wasn’t fulfilled and craved greater success. Then I was introduced to The Best Magic Mirrors.
This amazing company has given me the opportunity to live the lifestyle I want, making my own decisions, and having control of my own diary, whilst also providing the most incredible guidance and support to help make the business successful.
I am so proud to be a part of The Best Magic Mirrors family and love every day that I now get to wake up and create Magical Memories for my amazing clients.
