Last month, Polaroid Fotobar announced its experiential retail concept is now available for franchising nationally. Polaroid Fotobar is a first-of-its-kind store that allows customers to “liberate” their photos by instantly printing their favorite pictures from their smartphones, Facebook, Instagram and other digital platforms, while transforming them into innovative and displayable works of art.
Serial entrepreneurs and brothers Warren and Ted Struhl founded the company and, in working with Polaroid, they infused the start-up with the product recognition of this iconic, 75-year old brand. Launched in 2012, the company opened its flagship location at The LINQ in Las Vegas earlier this year and operates four stores in South Florida.
Each location offers customers the ability to instantly print pictures with the Polaroid classic border logo in five different sizes. In addition, customers can display their photos in an extensive selection of custom frames photo products crafted from materials including canvas, acrylic, metal, glass and bamboo.
The company is seeking single and multi-unit operators with a commitment to exceptional customer service and the resources to open their first unit within nine months.Initial investments will range from $135,000 to $439,000, depending on which Polaroid Fotobar concept selected, a traditional 1,400 square foot store or the micro-retail experience.
