EARNING POTENTIAL

As a Venture Studios franchisee, you will have the opportunity to make an average annual turnover of £440,000. The Venture model is designed to generate earnings for our franchisees of 10 -15% of turnover, in addition to a salary of approximately £25,000. In fact, our top performing studios generate sales over £650,000, with over 40% turning over more than £500,000 in 2017. This positions Venture in the top 35% of franchised systems (based on turnover) according to the most recent BFA survey.

Consequently, the earning potential of a Venture Studio is comparable with many much larger franchises on the market, However, with start-up costs starting at just £70,000, (compared to three times this number for other franchise opportunities)    the potential return on investment with Venture studios is exceptional.

HOW DO WE COMPARE?

According to the BFA 2015 survey, the average turnover of franchises providing personal services was £220,000. But with the average Venture studio turning over £440,000, this puts the company in the top third of its sector.

Your earning potential is supported by our cost-effective franchise fee. The average fee charged by franchisors in the UK is 11.7% but we set ours at 7.5% so our franchisees can earn more, reaping the benefits of their hard work. How many other companies charge a fee which is approximately 4% lower than the national average?

PROVEN SUCCESS

Venture has operated its franchise model for the last 17 years, and in this time has established itself as the premium market leader in the photography market. It is the only nationally recognised brand in its sector, making it truly distinct as a franchise concept. It dominates the space that it occupies in the market and supports studios from day one. With an exceptional training programme, we have taken a non-photographer to a franchise turnover of £500,000 within their first year of trading.

Venture now operates its franchise model across three continents, with 16 studios in the UK, as well as studios in Asia and the USA. We pride ourselves on a tried and tested business model, which combines world-class customer ser­vice, market-leading standards of photogra­phy, effective routes to market to generate customers, and a unique and contemporary range of products. All of which can result in excellent financial returns.

PHOTOGRAPHY BY DESIGN

Photography innovation and customer expe­rience is at the heart of Venture’s business, and we are constantly pushing the bounda­ries of style, presentation and client value. This focus creates both an experience and a product which is full of emotional value for the client, which in turn leads to an average spend per customer which is unrivalled in other photography franchises and the portrait market generally.
