Fantastic Success for New Barrett & Coe Studio

Barrett & Coe Limited

We’re thrilled to share the fantastic progress franchisees Mark Collins and Lyn Burgwin have made in their new life as photographers!

Neither Mark nor Lyn had previously worked in professional photography before but joined our franchise in September 2022, opening their studio in Shrewsbury.

We provided them with extensive photography and business training to prepare them for life behind the camera, and our marketing support provided them with 38 bookings in their first month, meaning they had a full diary from the very start.

They’ve since gone on to receive praise for their photography and for making customers feel welcome, and have recently achieved success in the Baby of the Month competition with their first winning image (click here to view).

“Big thank you to Mark and Lyn we Loved our experience and absolutely loved our photos you listened to what we wanted and took our youngest son’s needs into account so thank you from the bottom of our hearts we will be back.”
Gemma Atkinson

“Mark and Lyn are fantastic, my son is autistic, and I wasn’t sure how he’d cope with the photo session but they were brilliant with him, made him laugh and had plenty of banter. The photos came out amazing, and when my family saw them, they all cried because of how beautiful they were. 100% recommend them.”
Laura Meakin

It was very gratifying to receive their latest email giving us an update on their progress in March 2023.

Hi Peter, hope you had/are having a good break in the Lakes.

We had a very good week, £4665 overall with sales averaging £518.33.

Just a further note, we are getting a good response from our Facebook Ad and have received 4 online bookings so all looking good, just need to crack the family sector now!

Best regards
Mark & Lyn

We look forward to hearing more from Mark and Lyn on their franchise journey!
