A Suite Salon is a unique franchise concept offering individual salon suites to beauty professionals, providing each professional the benefits of a large luxury salon suite at affordable rates. The concept began in 2007 with our first suite salon just outside of Chicago, IL. With 18 planned and existing locations across 3 states by the end of 2014, A Suite Salon is rapidly expanding its national reach.
Our locations are well positioned in strategic markets to attract the area’s most talented and well known beauty and wellness professionals and their clientele. Each salon offers on average, 24 leased salon suites, each customized to the needs of the top professionals in that market.
Each salon suite offers a mix of beauty services attracting a variety of professionals including:
- Hair stylists
- Skincare professionals
- Nail professionals
- Massage therapists
- Makeup artists
- Jewelry & other retail providers
How it Works
A Suite Salon offers a simple revenue model. The primary source of revenue comes from the leasing of the individual suites. Additional revenues may be generated from ancillary services such as extra cleaning services, reception and appointment services.
As our brand continues to grow, our newer locations have realized an average of 50% leased occupancy within the first 3 months of a new location’s opening announcement. We provide professional marketing support and more importantly, location selection assistance to assist you in making sure your location selection is appropriate for your market.
Franchisees will spend 3 days at our corporate location in Jupiter, FL gaining valuable training on the day-to-day operations and the procedures outlined in the operating manual. Subsequently, we spend a day and a half at your location during your opening week, helping you put into place everything you learned.
Over the course of your training, you will learn all aspects of the business including:
- Site development
- Advertising & Marketing
- Management & Personnel
- Record keeping & Computer systems
- Site Maintenance
- General Operations
A Suite Salon would be ideal for a person who is a savvy entrepreneur. Existing franchisees have often come from real estate, investment banking, sales, marketing, project management or C-level corporate backgrounds, though this type of experience is not necessary. Franchisees are not expected to work at their location everyday and the concept is often appealing to a remotely operated, passive ownership or foreign investor.
Strengths of the Business
The strengths of the franchise are as follows:
- Few to no employees necessary
- No equipment other than that provided in the suites
- No inventory other than supplies
- Full training included
- Ongoing support included
- Remotely operated or passive ownership operator
