With nearly 40 years experience on the UK high street and 120-plus stores nationwide, Snappy Snaps are at the forefront of the photography and digital imaging market.

Although Snappy Snaps started primarily as a photographic development lab, a service still offered today, the franchise has built its operation to include a host of commercial, interior and personalised printing services, catering for professional photographers, businesses and individual consumers with a full click & collect offering.

The introduction of varying revenue streams and the opportunity to target different sectors has helped in the successful ongoing expansion of the brand.

The retail and photographic world is fast-paced and ever-changing and, as a result, very exciting. Snappy Snaps stays one step ahead by carrying out extensive research into its marketplace and personalised art trends. Each store offers a diverse range of unique and personalised products and services in a professional and friendly environment.

We have established a list of areas that our research shows has the right criteria for us to have successful stores, and we are keen to find the right people to match these areas.


A 10-day training programme covers:

  • An overview of Snappy Snaps
  • What we do
  • Our standards and procedures
  • Financial planning
  • Legal
  • Protocol
  • Operational overview
  • Merchandising your store
  • Marketing your business

On completion of the training course you will be given the opportunity to get hands on experience under the expert tutelage of an experienced franchise partner. Thereafter, when you take over your brand new store you will be supported in those early days by your Franchise Support Manager and the wider management team of Snappy Snaps.

What will I do as a Franchisee

We are predominately a retail business with a strong click & collect model that requires our franchise partners to lead the business from the shop floor. Due to the diverse nature of our business and service portfolio your day will be varied. You will be engaging with customers on a one-to-one basis and potentially B2B basis, producing personalised products, and working with your area team to drive the business forward.

A truly mixed role for those that love diversity.
