Next up in the hotseat is Ryan Murphy who reveals why the booth is on "fire" with his co-owned family run photography led business venture......LET's GET TO IT!!!
Forde Esq: How's it going Ryan?!?
Ryan: Good thanks, yourself?
Forde Esq: Pretty sweet thanks. So the first question as always is, where did you get the idea from for your business from?!?
Ryan: We went to our friends wedding and they had a booth there. It was very dated and could only seat 1 person! Everyone was absolutely loving that booth so we thought, imagine we could find a far superior booth! Me and my brother who is also my business partner did some research into it and finally found a booth big enough to fit upto to 6 people in there with the best technology available to date! Since then we've slowly been establishing our brand all across the UK as the ultimate party attraction for all special occasions. We've worked with some big names such as Thorpe Park and Audi and continue to make a good impression at events that were booked to attend.
Forde Esq: Nice work! So, what is it that you guys actually provide?!?
Ryan: Well as you know "BoothBoys" is a family run business providing state of art photo booths for all types of occasions that include Weddings, Birthdays, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs and corporate parties. Our portable photobooths provide family and friends with images ans memories of their occasion for them to take away and treasure. With that we also provide catering services such as delicious cakes so mum can have the night off from spending hours on end in the kitchen.
Forde Esq: Hahaha I like it. Always thinking outside the box. So since you started how have you guys been doing?!?
Ryan: The company has been a huge success over the past 18 months. We have carried out around 100 bookings to date and are now coming into our busiest period over Xmas for work functions and parties.
Forde Esq: Sounds like you guys will be flat out!
Ryan: Yeah we intend to be. It's around this time of year when we all see the potential in our business so we have to be prepared to take on as much as possible.
Forde Esq: Of course so is there anything new and exciting to expect from you guys?!?
Ryan: We have recently added Candy Buffets to our offering. This is where we provide 'retro' sweets such as black jacks, fruit salads etc in fancy martini glasses/jars! which have been a huge success at weddings.
Forde Esq: People want more than a slice of cake to take away with them these days. I suppose it's one of those occasions where people can pig out and worry about it in the morning! So last question for you is where do you see yourself in 5 years time?!?
Ryan: We already have many bookings for 2013, so already next year looks promising in terms of performance but really we wish to work on becoming one of the leading booth companies in the UK. Were always looking to expand to other areas in the UK which means taking on more staff members and providing opportunities for people to learn from our experiences in the entertainment sector. By the end of 2013 we hope to be the first name on everybody's lips when it comes to party planning and events in the UK.
Forde Esq: Thanks for that Ryan. Always a pleasure never a chore!
Ryan: Cheers Clint
