Lomobil, Singapore

  • 20,000 $

Lomobil is a photo-printing kiosks' franchise. It doesn't take much time to maintain and can be considered as a passive income.

 

The kiosk allows the customer to print "Polaroid"-like photos and stickers from various sources:

- Any public Instagram account

- Photos sent by email to a special email address

- Via Telegram bot

- Instant selfie taken by kiosk itself (in-built camera)

 

Customers interact with a kiosk through a sensor screen, and pay for the photos by cash. Kiosk accepts both banknotes and coins.

 

Kiosk maintenance includes paper top-up (each loading is 800 photos), encashment (up to 1500 banknotes) and supporting customers by phone.

 

If a customer faces difficulties in using the kiosk and calling customer support line, there is a functionality for support operator to connect to the kiosk remotely, to see the screen and even execute needed actions on behalf of the customer.

On average, you will have 2-3 calls to customer support per month.
