The first Snappy Snaps one hour photo store opened in 1983. A further three trial stores were added during the following three years and, following the success of these stores, the first franchised Snappy Snaps store opened for business in 1987.
The Snappy Snaps branch in Hampstead, London, featured in the news after the singer George Michael drove into the front of the building in the early hours of Sunday 4 July 2010 whilst under the influence of cannabis and prescription medication. Following Michael's death on Christmas Day 2016, the shop became the site of a "shrine" to the late singer, with fans leaving flowers, cards, messages and toys outside the shop front, much to the annoyance of the store management.
