4 Fun Fotobooth

January 01, 2012

Sandy Meeks

 

As a recently retired educator, Sandy began thinking of ways in which to keep her busy and supplement her income. She attended a family member’s wedding and was introduced to a novel idea; at the reception someone had set up a photo booth and it was a huge hit. Sandy decided this was something she could provide to San Angelo and the Concho Valley.

Sandy began doing some research and found a photo booth rental business in Lubbock. She met with the owner who had designed his booth, and had him build one for her. In the meantime, she met with Advisor Paul Howard of the Angelo State University - Small Business Development Center. Sandy had questions about starting a small business and Paul assisted with the process. He suggested she start by developing a business plan. “The SBDC helped me with starting a new business and all the aspects that a new owner needs to be aware of. It was particularly helpful with writing a business plan,” Sandy said.

San Angelo now has a photo booth available to rent for any special event. Sandy has created two jobs for the local economy with plans to expand in the future.
