Clix Portrait Studios Photography Franchise Selects Mill Creek As First Washington Location

MILL CREEK, WA | Sunday, July 01, 2007


CLIX®, an Atlanta-based rapidly growing portrait photography studio franchise continues to focus on national expansion with its first Washington location opening in early August 2007. The Mill Creek CLIX Portrait Studio is located on the north side of the Mill Creek Town Center, across from LA Fitness.

Mill Creek resident, Christopher Fotos, will bring the new revolutionary photography franchise to the area, the first of its kind in Washington. Fotos had been looking for the perfect franchise opportunity to grow in his local community. After researching prospective franchises, he came across CLIX. Fotos was immediately drawn to the simplicity of the CLIX concept and the bold look and feel of the CLIX advertising campaign. He wanted the chance to own a business where he could work with two of his favorite things – children and photography.

"I've always wanted to own my own business. The moment I discovered the CLIX opportunity I knew I couldn't pass it up," said CLIX Mill Creek franchisee, Christopher Fotos. "Franchising with CLIX is the perfect fit for my family. It will provide the challenge and flexibility of owning my own business, with the added assistance of an established franchisor." First established in 1999, CLIX makes picture-taking exciting while providing high-quality, professional portraits customers can take home the same day. The studio is fun, friendly, hip and now, providing customers in-store portrait photography, special event photography and on-site, do-it-yourself and assisted photo imaging and design centers, which include digital scrapbooking and one hour digital photo production.

CLIX is in the business of capturing wonderful memories for the Mill Creek community. CLIX provides commendable service, a friendly environment and creative portraits of everything from daycares, school proms and sports teams to senior pictures and family portraits.

"CLIX is different from all other portrait photography studios because we pride ourselves on being creative and flexible," said Fotos. "Our photographers will use multiple backgrounds and compositions to achieve the perfect photograph. We offer our own ideas but are also open to what mom and dad like. At CLIX we compose photo packages immediately on-site that make sense for the parent's needs and budget." Before becoming the first Washington CLIX franchisee, Fotos spent the past ten years traveling and living around the world as a US Navy Officer. He graduated from the Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD in 1997. Christopher currently lives in Mill Creek with his wife, Asha and their three children, Theodore, Alexandra and Tony.

"We are looking forward to working with Christopher Fotos in bringing CLIX to Washington," said David Asarnow, president and CEO of CLIX. "We launched CLIX to put the fun back into the portrait photography industry. When we seek potential franchisees, we look for someone who will provide outstanding service and is upbeat, friendly, hip and now. Christopher has all of the ideal traits that will make CLIX Mill Creek successful and well received in the community." CLIX is currently booking studio appointments and on-site events at (425) 608-9175.

About CLIX First established in 1999, the CLIX business model offers three distinct revenue streams for potential franchisees – a retail-based portrait studio; a protected territory for on-site special event photography; and on-site, assisted or do-it-yourself photo imaging and scrapbooking design services. According to CLIX officials, a franchise with multi-faceted yet interconnected revenue streams is unprecedented in the industry. The company and its franchisees currently employ 85 people at 12 stores across the United States.
