Big Picture Framing Franchise

Custom picture framing/ready-made frames

The retail custom framing business, a multi-billion dollar industry, has always been populated by "Mom and Pop" operators. Depending on your luck of the draw, you may have to wait weeks for your frame - and in many cases you will still pay high costs! Sometimes however, you may find an artisan who will lovingly attend to your framing needs. Who knows, and how do you find a good framing store?

In 2000, Barry and Bob launched chain of frame stores in Boston stressing design, quality, selection, price, and On Demand service. To back up their programs, Bob and Barry give their customers a guarantee on all custom framing. Needless to say, the solutions Bob and Barry brought to their customers met with immediate success. Now, Big Picture Framing customers can get their custom frames when they want it, at a price below the competition, and be assured that everything is unconditionally guaranteed...forever.

Now with four stores, proven successful marketing programs and well-established operational techniques, Bob and Barry are inviting others - through franchising - to join them in opening new stores.
