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 UK studios generate sales over £700,000.

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.

According to the BFA 2018 survey, the average turnover of franchises providing personal services was £344,000. However the Venture model significantly outperforms this sector, with Venture franchisees in the UK achieving an average of £440,000. Your earning potential is supported by our cost-effective franchise fee. With a combined franchise and marketing fee of only 7.5.%.

Venture has operated its franchise model for the last 20 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.

The support doesn’t stop there. In 2018 our central marketing team generated nearly 20% of customers that visited a Venture studio. And with 10,000 customers visiting a Venture studio in 2018, we are 10 times bigger than our nearest competitor. It is this presence in the market that led to Venture being chosen in 2017 by electronics giant Samsung, to work with them in the launch of their ‘The Frame’ television, generating very high quality customers for all Venture franchisees and providing a fantastic brand association for the company.
