Customers

As our standard of living continues to rise, there are more home owners and their homes are larger and more luxurious than in previous generations. This new generation is better educated, more affluent; they want and can afford to buy the better things in life and are very conscious of the importance of projecting the right image. Art is an integral part of their home, office environment and style of living.

Competition

In the past, most people who have gotten involved in the art and framing business have been artists—not necessarily good businessmen. It has long been considered a craft rather than an industry, because each has their own way of doing things and they rely on a cadre of middlemen to provide and process their end product. Even other franchises in this industry still use the same middlemen and the same old antiquated distribution system.

Design Efficiency

Our “State-of-the-Art” “Fancy Art Order Management System” (FOMS) is a 21st Century revolutionary break through for this industry. It allows you to quickly and simply compose a framing treatment, tailored to your customers taste and budget; then with as little effort as a push of a button, their orders are uploaded to a central location, where they will be completely fabricated and then delivered back to your location for final assembly. In this way, we can eliminate all the middle layers, maximize yield and buying power, and reduce your cost of operation by not tying up capital and space in unnecessary equipment it would take to do things piece meal. You can spend more of your time on merchandising and making money.

Our franchise fee for a single location is $24,500.00 and the total cost including fixtures, equipment, inventory and ancillary fees can range from $104,000.00 to $206.000.00.
