Huntsville - April 30, 2013 - The future of Spoiled Rotten® Photography just came into clearer focus with the recent launch of the 10-year-old company’s franchise division. The brainchild of professional photographer and mother of two, Melissa Tash, Spoiled Rotten Photography has steadily grown both its portfolio and reputation since first debuting in local preschools all over Huntsville, Alabama in 2003. Since that time, Tash has streamlined her company’s systems, developed proprietary software, created effective marketing materials, written a guidebook to “kid wrangling,” and built a highly successful business that has parents grinning as widely as the children beautifully captured in each portrait.
“I feel as though Spoiled Rotten has been such a blessing to my family, I want it to be a blessing to others,” explains Tash, Founder and CEO of Spoiled Rotten Photography. “It presents future franchisees with an opportunity to work from home while reaping financial and personal rewards. Photography is such a special relationship – I’ve watched many of the children I photograph virtually grow up before my lens. Spoiled Rotten is a locally-based-and-built business – it’s the perfect concept to bring into a community and foster from the ground up using a foolproof system we’ve had the pleasure of solidifying over the past decade.”
Tash – who served in the U.S. Army, worked as an Industrial Engineer for Nike®, and acted as a Payload Crew Trainer for NASA’s International Space Station program – has learned a thing or two about the power of capable leadership, the value of customer feedback, and the importance of training to the success of any business or mission. She successfully married her custom photography passion to an overwhelming need for quality school portraits to create a truly unique, highly lucrative business model – so lucrative, in fact, that she quickly surpassed her NASA paycheck and was able to turn her attention to growing Spoiled Rotten full-time while raising a family.
“We have partnered with Eastbourne Brands to grow our company throughout the Southeast,” says Tash. “We have our sights set on communities in Florida, Georgia, Tennessee and Alabama with plans to expand nationally in 2014. Spoiled Rotten is on the lookout for family-oriented, community-minded, and outgoing individuals who are highly motivated, love kids and appreciate great photography. Of course, they don’t need to be an accomplished photographer to become a part of the Spoiled Rotten family of photographers. We will provide all new franchisees with a very thorough two-week training program at our studio in Huntsville, along with all of the sets, software, marketing materials, and tools they will need to get started. A representative from our Corporate Office will be on hand during their very first photo shoot. And we’ll provide them with ongoing training and support, as well as assistance in growing their client base and updating their sets seasonally so their portraits remain fresh and special.”
Of the many rewards associated with being a Spoiled Rotten franchisee, Tash lists chief among them the opportunity to:
“The Spoiled Rotten Photography concept is a particularly excellent fit for small to mid-sized towns,” insists Tra Williams, Managing Partner for Jacksonville, FL-based Eastbourne Brands. “These photographers get to be a valued part of a child’s growing up process, as well as their local preschool community. Getting started is easy, there’s no burden of finding and financing a brick-and-mortar location, and the financial barrier of entry is surprisingly low. Essentially, for the price of a mid-sized sedan, you could own your own business. The system is absolutely turn-key – from learning how to take terrific photos worthy of Spoiled Rotten’s 100% Quality Guarantee to acquiring clients and setting up for a photo shoot. Their online viewing and ordering platform has finally given parents the luxury of multiple poses of beautiful portraits from which to choose. And only Spoiled Rotten Photography captures the natural and authentic personality of every child every time.”
