First Quarter 2006 is Picture Perfect for Clix Photography Franchise
The future continues to shine bright for CLIX™, an Atlanta-based, rapidly growing franchisor in the portrait photography industry. CLIX remains focused, with a record commitment for 19 location agreements signed during the first quarter 2006. In less than a year, the unique franchise concept has developed across the country and continues to change the face of portrait photography.
In the first quarter of 2006, CLIX announced the following area development agreements; 5 CLIX locations in Long Island, New York; 5 locations in Southern, N.H.; 4 locations in East Sacramento, C.A.; 3 locations in West Sacramento, C.A.; and 2 locations in Arlington, V.A. Joining the 19 recently awarded sites, are nine additional CLIX portrait studios operating in New York State, Pennsylvania and Michigan. The very first CLIX in the country opened in Upstate New York in August 2005 and the first west coast studio is set to open in Ventura, C.A., in July 2006.
CLIX makes picture-taking fun while at the same time offering a unique, multifaceted business opportunity. The company offers three revenue streams under one roof with one franchise fee, which is extremely appealing to interested franchisees. CLIX’s combined revenue streams include in-store portrait photography, special event photography and on-site, do-it-yourself and assisted photo imaging and design centers, which include digital scrapbooking and one hour digital photo production.
“One of the things makes CLIX a wonderful franchise opportunity is that there is no other franchise in this industry affording its owner the chance to house three separate yet interconnected revenue streams under one single store location,” says David Asarnow, president and CEO of CLIX. “We offer franchisees a company and a business opportunity that is fun, friendly, hip and now. CLIX is the picture perfect opportunity for franchisees to not only pursue, but to live the American dream and that’s why so many are attracted to our business model.”
CLIX and its executive team continue to present the CLIX franchise model and business opportunity to professionals across the country. To date, Asarnow has strong interest and additional franchise agreements in progress in a number of States across America including Arizona, Georgia, Missouri, New York, Texas and Virginia. The team is on track to have a total of 30 CLIX studios open across the country by December of 2006, well exceeding the company’s goal set in August 2005, when the first CLIX franchise opened for business.
First established in 1999, the CLIX business model offers three distinct revenue streams for potential franchisees – a retail-based portrait studio; a protected territory for on-site special event photography; and on-site, assisted or do-it-yourself photo imaging and scrapbooking design services. According to CLIX officials, a franchise with multi-faceted yet interconnected revenue streams is unprecedented in the industry. The company currently employs 56 people at nine stores across New York State, Pennsylvania and Michigan.
