TO THE INTER-STATE FAMILY
My name is Sheila Wingard and my husband Jim and I own Wingard Photography located in Arkansas, where Jim's grandfather started our company in 1938. Our relationship with Inter-State has been amazing over the last 15 years as an Inter-State Studio Affiliate. In July, we will begin our journey as a franchisee and believe it’s the best decision we have made for our company. I credit our success in this industry in part because of our relationship with Inter-State Studio. Their main goal is to help companies succeed and grow and they do their best to help in any way they can.
I truly feel like a partner and not just another customer.
I knew that volume photography was really
the best way to make my business successful.
As I grew my School Picture business, the need
to find a workflow and software program
that did what I needed became more important.
I'd tried a few different options but none compared
to what Inter-State had. When the opportunity
to franchise was given to me, it made perfect sense.
I CAN FOCUS ON GIVING MY CLIENTS WHAT THEY WANT
from a local company, with the benefits
of a national brand.
I'm franchising with Inter-State
because I've been presented
with a wonderful opportunity to grow my business
with a trusted, reputable, family-owned company
that has been capturing smiles for generations.
TAKING THIS LEAP IS A
HUGE STEP FORWARD FOR MY BUSINESS,
and I couldn't be more excited
to start this journey with Inter-State.

After acquiring a few of Inter-State's existing accounts, Mary Jo Burke immediately started using the Marketing support that is offered to our franchises, and maximized her sales efforts by working with our Telemarketing team.
