From the outset - when our own families were struggling to find a company they trusted to transfer their home movies and slides - our vision has been to offer an alternative to faceless mail-away and drop-box services.
We wanted a place where you can talk to a friendly, knowledgeable person about your project and have it put together exactly the way you envision.
When you work with our team, you can be assured we'll treat your memories as if they're our own. Your originals are kept safe throughout the process. Our expert staff uses state-of-the-art technology to produce high-quality digital productions. And we pride ourselves on providing a level of personal, custom service that others don't.
We made the decision to franchise MemoryWise because we wanted to give others the same experience we enjoy—an opportunity to work for ourselves and independently make a living, while doing something meaningful. If you choose to join us at MemoryWise, we think you'll come to realize that this business is special; it's unique and highly sought-after. The personal interactions with clients as they share their stories and memories make work fun and interesting, and at the end of the day you have the satisfaction that you helped each person with a project that was immeasurably important to them.
The journey of starting MemoryWise and growing the company into a franchise has enriched our lives in so many ways, and has enabled us to enrich the lives of the thousands of clients who entrust us with their memories. We hope that joining us in this journey will similarly enrich your life, and enable you to make a meaningful contribution to your neighbors and community by helping to make their memories lasting and convenient to enjoy!
