Lil' Angels Photography Franchise Costs & Fees

Date of Incorporation: 1996

Franchising Since: 1998

Headquarters: Olive Branch, Mississippi

Business Description: The franchisor is Lil’ Angels LLC. The franchisor grants franchises for the right to provide photography services for families, children, and youth involved in childcare centers, sports, schools, clubs, and other youth-related organizations.

Franchise Offer: The franchise owner will schedule and take pictures of children, families, and those involved in youth organizations. The franchisee will advertise and contact families, childcare centers, athletic teams and organizations, schools, clubs, and other youth-related organizations.

Financial Assistance: franchisor does not offer direct or indirect financing to franchise owners.

Training and Assistance: The franchisor will train the franchisee and his/her manager or one other person he/she designates. If the franchisee hires a photographer to take pictures on his/her behalf the photographer must also attend and successfully complete the initial owner training program. Alternatively, if the franchisor has certified the franchisee to train his/her photographers, he/she may train any hired photographers before they commence to take pictures. Additional training programs and refresher courses are provided for all franchise owners. While attendance is not required at these additional training programs, it is recommended that the franchisee attend.

Territory: The franchisor will grant the franchisee an exclusive territory with an average population of 300,000 or approximately 150 childcare centers. The franchisor will define the limits of the territory by highways, roads, and county boundaries. However, the franchisee will operate from one location, usually his/her home, and must receive permission before relocating. If the franchisor were to move or otherwise relocate outside of the territory, the franchisor would base its approval of the relocation of the business or the franchisee’s establishment of additional franchise operations on the payment of any required initial franchise fee, and/or the franchisee’s successful implementation of the Lil' Angels System in the territory.

Term of Agreement and Renewal: The length of the initial franchise term is 10 years. In the discretion of the franchisor, which will not be unreasonably withheld, the franchisee may apply for an additional term of 10 years.

Obligations and Restrictions: The franchisee must at all times retain and exercise management control over the business, unless Lil’ Angels approves otherwise in writing. The franchisee is an independent contractor, and as such must exercise full, complete, and unfettered control over, and have full responsibility for any employee and labor relations matter involving his/her employees and for any sales and picture issues that may arise as a result of photographing children and selling the photographs. While the Franchise Agreement does not require the franchisee to participate in the direct, day-to-day operations of the studio, the franchisor recommends that the franchisee become personally involved in the direct operation of the business. The franchisee must sell only goods or services that have been approved by Lil’ Angels.
