“Celaine and I had just recently moved house and were looking for a business opportunity to supplement our income from our day jobs to help pay the mortgage with the potential to lead to a full time business so we could eventually give up our day jobs and run our own successful business. “

Giggle Booth – Photo Booth Hire Pete and Celaine Franchisees

“Celaine and I had recently moved house and were looking for a business opportunity to supplement our income from our day jobs to help pay the mortgage with the potential to lead to a full-time business so we could eventually give up our day jobs and run our own successful business. I had seen photo booths on-line and being a keen photographer I was fascinated by how they worked and their quirky nature. I was thinking of buying a booth online and setting up on our own business from scratch but this would be extremely difficult to finance and set up from scratch on our own. It would have taken a huge amount of capital to set up websites, advertising etc to even get us off the ground and that could have taken months before we even got any bookings.

“On June 2nd 2012 some friends of our got married and had a Giggle Booth at their reception. We of course had a go with our friends and loved it. We loved the look, the entertainment and of course having some silly photos taken! We were amazed that we got to keep the photo as well as it was a little reminder of our friend’s wedding.

“Another set of friends got married the following weekend on June 9th and they also had Giggle Booth at their wedding…now we were intrigued!

“I did some research on-line into Giggle Booth and found out that they had recently started selling a franchise so I gave them a call to find out more. I had a few conversations with Dave Gillard, a founder of Giggle Booth and I was impressed with what their package offered and when I read the pack that arrived with more details we were really interested in doing this. We really thought that this was something that we could make work doing part-time around our current schedules and build up over a few years to make into a successful full-time branch.

“We took the plunge and signed the papers at the end of July 2012 and our new Booth arrived at the end of August 2012. We have done it for about 6 months now and it has exceeded expectations. We have an outstanding number of bookings for this year already and we even have some for 2014 & 2015! We would never be where we are now if we had set this up ourselves from scratch.

“Buying a franchise is certainly a better option than starting it alone. It was tough to find the finance to enter this venture but with the support from family, the bank & Giggle Booth we got the finance to get started. It has been a far cheaper option to start a business as well as the fact that we have benefitted hugely from the technical expertise, the advertising and the branding that Giggle Booth have provided for us. We gain bookings through both them and ourselves so this has helped get our business of the ground running. They set up our websites, provided advertising material and helped to promote us.

“Business has been far busier than we expected at this early stage. We have just done our first big show at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry which had about 3,500 people through the doors and the number of people who came to see us and booked with us is a testament just to how popular Giggle Booth is (one couple travelled from Newcastle just to book with Giggle Booth). We would never have done this at all if we had set it up alone as we could never have found the finance to set up from scratch.

“We would both recommend Giggle Booth as a great way to start your own business. It has been a whirlwind 6 months for us and we are looking forward to a busy 2013 and beyond.”
