Passive ownership is what this business model is all about. The franchisor has been able to combine a passive ownership franchise with a model that is 100% recession proof for today and years to come. As a result, this franchise offers people the opportunity to invest in a brand, not buy a job, that has longevity, is fun to run, and has very little competition.
Franchisor will provide new franchisee with hands on, comprehensive training at a live salon with all the travel and accommodations included in the franchise fee. New franchisee will have two full days of actually running the salon from opening procedures to scheduling, customer check in/out, party booking, restocking, cleaning and much more. New franchisee will also have many hours of classroom based training where the following topics will be covered: Purchasing and inventory procedures Quality control measures Retail Merchandising Point of sale instruction How to increase sales through add-on sales Financial controls Marketing, advertising and grand opening guidelines Business development and management Human Resources Support.
Once the salon is up and running with new ownership, the franchisor will continue to help the new franchisee grow through regular field support on location, telephone, local training sessions, monthly newsletters, and ongoing research and development that offer the franchisee fresh innovative ideas.
