CLIX, an Atlanta-based rapidly growing portrait photography franchise, was named by Franchise Market Magazine as one of the "Top 100 New Franchises" for the second consecutive year.
CLIX, a fun, family-friendly portrait franchise business, was founded in 1999 and has fifteen studios open and ten more in pre-opening stages.
David Asarnow, CEO of CLIX, says, "We are excited to be recognized again by Franchise Market Magazine as one of the Top 100 New Franchises in their fall 2007 issue. Franchise Market Magazine bases the ranking on franchises that started business after 2000 and show success through rapid growth. We began with several studios in New York and now have studios across the U.S. – from New Hampshire to Florida to Washington State.
"One of the reasons for the popularity of our business," says Asarnow, "is that we've put the fun back into portraits. This is not the overly formal studio you may remember from your senior portrait. We photograph children, families and even pets and make the event exciting and memorable using creativity and a boutique-style atmosphere."
Another innovation from CLIX is that it offers franchisees multiple revenue streams. In addition to the portrait studio, owners offer on-site photography which is popular with dance studios, day-care and pre-school centers, fraternal organizations, charitable functions, recreational centers and sports programs.
"Our studios feature advanced technology," adds Asarnow, "and our Design Centers allow customers to work with their own photos - removing red eye, adding borders, splashing in exciting backgrounds. The ability to create scrapbook pages and memory books right in our studios is a popular feature. We also have a Portrait Party offering where girls can enjoy being models for a day and even take home a memory book of photos from the party."
An important key to the success of the CLIX Photography franchise system is that they recognized early that customers prefer instant gratification. CLIX studios produce superior photos that customers can take home the same day, ensuring customer satisfaction and increased sales.
"Being named in the Top 100 New Franchises by Franchise Market Magazine for two consecutive years is a wonderful validation of our concept," says Asarnow. "We have a great offering and look forward to helping many more people discover business ownership as CLIX franchisees.
Founded in 1999, CLIX is a rapidly growing portrait photography franchisor offering in-store portrait photography, special event photography and assisted or do-it-yourself digital photo imaging and scrapbook design centers.
