Franchising with TSS Photography

Business Model

TSS Photography provides tools for owners to book and conduct high-volume photography shoots for clients such as sports leagues and schools. TSS Photography does not charge a royalty. The parent company will only make money as the owner sells services and products.

Key Benefits

TSS Photography franchisees love the ability to work with organizations that positively impact youth in their communities. They also love the flexibility of a work-from-home business model and the low-cost and low-risk nature of a business that does not require an inventory of products. Owners can work as much or as little as they choose depending on their lifestyle and goals.

Home-based: This means a flexible schedule and low overhead costs

No Royalties: TSS Photography does not charge its franchisees a percentage or minimum monthly royalty. This is critical in maximizing and controlling your bottom line.

Superior Support & Training: Experienced home office staff partners with and assists franchisees in everything from photography training, sales and business development and day to day operations.

Solid, Mature Franchise: With over 30 years in franchising, TSS Photography knows what it takes to support and grow successful franchises and has a proven model in place to get franchisees up and running and their investment paid back fast.

Comprehensive Training: The company wants franchisees to ramp up fast and experience immediate success. For this reason TSS offers a series of in-field training combined with classroom and online training sessions to make sure franchisees have all they need to ensure a fast ramp-up and early success.

Competitive Advantage: The company’s technology, products, partners, and systems provide a competitive edge in every market.

Marketing Support

TSS offers initial marketing training, guidance on best practices, a tool kit of no-cost marketing assets and a website with available-for-purchase marketing materials. TSS also offers ongoing marketing support and ideas via no-cost annual meetings and webinars. Additionally, TSS has cultivated a number of nation relationships [SB1] and maintains websites and social media on behalf of owners.

Training Programs

TSS provides initial sales, business and photography training. There is no need to be a photographer to be successful with this business model. The company provides onsite photography and sales training for new owners plus continuing education that includes several no-cost annual meetings and weekly webinars. New owners are trained via the TSS University which is run by corporate staff and veteran TSS mentors. TSSU is also available to any owner that would like a refresher on best practices, software or photography.

  • Training and Support and support is awesome. If I have an issue during business hours, I can reach out to the team and get an answer or guidance very quickly. During non-business hours, you can reach out to the on-call staff and get a response back within a few hours. Training and Support also monitors our community social page and will respond sometimes immediately regardless of the time of day or night.
