Unlike traditional salons, where stylists work with clients in an open space with several stations, each stylist has her or his own space, giving clients the luxury of exclusivity and privacy. Stylists still benefit from the synergy gained from working in close proximity to other beauty professionals but are free of the drama of a traditional salon.
Stylists rent the suites for a flat fee, which includes Internet, utilities and use of the necessary furniture and cabinets for professionals. This makes it a real estate model for our franchise partners and offers them a semi-absentee lifestyle business.
Each franchisee is essentially a landlord and business coach for his or her own group of 25 to 30 small-business owners, called “members,” of MY SALON Suite. Those small-business owners/members (usually a hair stylist, massage therapist or similar) rents a furnished space from the franchisee.
Why do salon professionals choose MY SALON Suite?
Because many of these members aren’t familiar with how to set up a business, franchisees walk them through steps like filling out paperwork for required state licenses. This type of reinforcement, along with several other support tools, helps to minimize member turnover.
The assistance doesn’t end there. MY SALON Suite franchises offer members access to a reservation program for appointments, along with participation in organizing facility-wide events, such as philanthropic charity programs. Plus, MY SALON Suite offers a program for ongoing training for their members. The entire business model – franchisees working closely with members on several levels to run the salon suites – has been proven time and time again in multiple markets across the United States. Franchisees obtain their knowhow when joining the system.
