Pixster, the largest non-franchised photo booth rental company in the US, has had their sights set on the Phoenix market since the beginning of 2017. The company announced today that official plans have been in the works for an Arizona expansion for the past 6 months. A Phoenix office will be opening as early as February 2018. This will be Pixster's 4th physical location and will service all 24 cities in Maricopa County.
Most well known for their Open Air style photo booths, Pixster has become an industry standard in the event rental space. Their regular clientele reads like a who's who: HBO, Neiman Marcus, Google, Turner Broadcasting, Amazon, Whole Foods, and many more, so it's no wonder the company has been so successful. The list of celebrities that regularly hire the company is equally as impressive.
To date, Pixster has participated in over 6,000 events, captured over 2 million photos, and has had their photos viewed 121 million times. Earlier this year Pixster was ranked #14 of the 100 fastest growing companies in San Diego (where they are headquartered). The company has won 32 awards of outstanding service achievement from organizations like Wedding Wire, the Knot, and City Voter. They've also been praised in several lifestyle magazines, wedding blogs, and business journals.
CEO and founder, McLain Harvey, attributes the success to, "continuously innovating, staying true to our core competencies, and providing our clients the best experience possible." Regarding the Phoenix market, McLain went on to say, "every market we have entered is because of popular demand. We have been fortunate enough to maintain our reputation and in doing so we've grown organically at a rapid rate." This year Pixster expanded their offerings by rolling out their 180 Degree GIF Experience, Green Screen, and their Custom Smoothing Filter. Perhaps best of all, they continue to maintain 5-star ratings on every major review website.
Projections for the Phoenix and Scottsdale area have not been released, but the company did say in Q3 of this year they anticipate 2018 to be their strongest year yet and anticipate servicing 3500-4000 events company-wide. Advance photo booth rental reservations for Phoenix are available through the Arizona website. Scottsdale, Chandler, and central valley cities are also accepting pre-orders for events taking place after February 1, 2018.
