Part-time entrepreneur beings revolutionary TapSnap phototainment system to Minneapolis

Local entrepreneur Chris Diller has brought the revolutionary TapSnap phototainment system to Minneapolis.

Launched this April at over two dozen locations across North America, TapSnap is the special event photo booth reinvented as an open-concept, high-tech phototainment system that is instantly connected to social media.

“I love how social TapSnap is,” said Diller, who owns the TapSnap franchise for Minneapolis. “You bring this giant touchscreen into a room and people just gravitate towards it. Soon they’re playing and joking around with the camera, and each other. And when they’re done, TapSnap lets them share photos instantly in real time on the Internet.”

TapSnap allows event guests to take their picture with a touch of the fingertip on the giant 42-inch multi-touch screen, draw on their photos and add digital props like funny hats or googly eyes. When they are done, they can share their creation instantly via social media networks and email, or print their photo to take home.

“I know there’s dozens and dozens of events here in Minneapolis and hundreds of venues that TapSnap would be ideally suited for,” said Diller. “There’s a ton of Fortune 500 companies with their summer picnics, golf tournaments and holiday parties. Then there are weddings and graduation parties, charity events and more. The event market is extremely lucrative.”

TapSnap is Diller’s second part-time business, on top of his day job as an IT project manager. His first part-time enterprise is a DVDNow Kiosks business, the independent answer to the corporate conglomerate Redbox. That business is called Movies on the Go and runs nine kiosks in the greater Minneapolis area.

Because the kiosks are automated, Diller and his wife Karen can manage the business in as little as ten hours a week. When DVDNow announced they were launching their new TapSnap franchise, Diller was on board immediately. “Because of the previous relationship I have with DVDNow I know they are going to go the extra mile with TapSnap, because that’s what they do,” he said.

Diller is able to fit TapSnap into his already hectic schedule because special events tend to be on evenings and weekends.

While there are many photo booth companies out there, TapSnap is an entirely different breed, said Diller, because of the quality of the camera. “TapSnap makes keepsakes, not just party favors. When your wedding is over, photos are the only real souvenirs you have. It’s not a webcam. TapSnap uses a hi-resolution digital camera, and it shows,” he said.

Diller is a trailblazer, one of the first franchisees of TapSnap. The invention of a Vancouver, Canada company, TapSnap is rapidly franchising across North America with operations in over a dozen locations including Los Angeles, Portland, New Jersey, Houston, Toronto and more. A company-owned franchise has been running since last summer in Vancouver, Canada, where TapSnap is based.

Scott McInnes, the CEO and founder of TapSnap (and DVDNow Kiosks) said, “Photography is the new entertainment. These days, with social media, everyone wants pictures to share. TapSnap is a great way for your guests to have an incredible amount of fun getting their picture taken. And that’s priceless.”
