Amongst the uncertainty in the events and entertainment industry franchisor owner Chris Goodchild pivoted his events company to secures his first franchisee. The Buckinghamshire based events company has, like many others, had to face some serious challenges over the past 7 months. However, Chris Goodchild, founder and Managing Director of The Best Magic Mirrors has not only continued providing fun photobooth experiences virtually but has also achieved prestigious British Franchise Association status.
Chris told us how this came about.
“When the Covid restrictions came in to force I recognised that this could be an opportunity to focus on the growth of the company. That might sound ‘counterintuitive’; when you’re doing well it’s easiest to just keep delivering what clients want, but the past 7-8 months have enabled The Best Magic Mirrors to offer a new, super fun and engaging online experience. Additionally, we are now in a position to grow the business nationally via our franchise opportunity. I have been working closely with Pip Wilkins, CEO of the BFA, and her team to become the first Band 0 member and consequently we now have our first Windsor-based franchisee on board – it’s an incredible feeling of success against the odds”
We asked Lauren Hill, the successful franchisee of The Best Magic Mirrors Windsor, why she decided now was the time to buy a franchise.
“I was working in an industry which I enjoyed but I wasn’t seeing the results I wanted; I just wasn’t fulfilled and craved greater success. Then I was introduced to The Best Magic Mirrors. This amazing company has given me the opportunity to live the lifestyle I want, making my own decisions and having control of my own diary, whilst also providing the most incredible guidance and support to help make the business successful. It incorporates all the factors you could want in a career – fun, sociable, interactive, and knowing I can make someone’s event super special is what makes it all worthwhile. I am so proud to be a part of The Best Magic Mirrors family and love waking up every day and creating magical memories for so many wonderful clients.” The Best Magic Mirrors is ‘one franchise to watch’ according to the highly respected “What Franchise” magazine.
