Is a Hair Salon the Right Children’s Franchise for You?
How do you know if franchising a children's related business like Snip-its salon is right for you? Ask yourself these 3 questions.
It’s no secret that owning a children’s franchise is popular among today’s entrepreneurs.
When you look deeper at a children’s franchise selection, the hair salon market offers some of the most consistent rewards. The beauty industry, worth more than $56 billion annually, wields big potential, and hair care is the largest segment.
Who wouldn’t want to be in on that kind of growth? Before you try to start a salon from scratch, though, you might want to consider the obstacles you’ll face going it alone. Your salon brand will need to get off the ground with little to no brand name recognition. You’ll need to be strategic and get advice on where best to lease a space. You’ll need to answer such questions as: How will you construct and build your salon? What services will you offer? How will you market your hair salon to drive in new customers? How will you know what products to carry?
One option for you to consider is franchising a hair salon with brand recognition and a well-established system. If you want to invest in yourself and do it with potentially fewer missteps, franchising a children’s hair salon with Snip-its might be right for you. Snip-its offers a proven system with nearly 30 years of experience and brand awareness throughout the U.S., has a tested model and support system for where and how to build your hair salon, and provides the training and franchise peer network to set you up for success and reduce risk.
So, how do you know if franchising a Snip-its salon is right for you? Ask yourself these questions:
Are you passionate about children and understand what it’s like to be a parent?
At Snip-its, “We Speak Kid TM”! Serving the families that come into our salons is something we take seriously, and the joy we spark during each haircut adventure is immeasurable. Our training focuses heavily on customer service and our carefully crafted haircut adventure.
Can you follow our proven model and maximize your children’s franchise?
Snip-its has already perfected the children’s haircut experience. Since 1995, we have dialed in our business model to ensure kids leave our salons looking adorable and happy. Parents know what to expect when they bring their kids into a Snip-its. They trust the brand, the services we offer, and the carefully curated products we sell in our salons. If you are the type of person who can diligently follow an established model and trust the process, then franchising will suit you well. If you consider yourself more of a trailblazer who needs to change things up frequently, then franchising probably isn’t the right fit for you.
Can you network within your community and build a strong team?
You don’t need to be a hairstylist or a barber to own a Snip-its salon. Most of our franchise owners had no experience in the hair industry at all before signing on with us. What you do need to be good at is building relationships. Getting out into the community to network with other local business owners, potential customers, and talented hairstylists and barbers is crucial to your success. Being able to recruit quality hair salon staff and build an amazing work culture will help you maximize your potential.
Answering yes to the questions above provides a good indication that a children’s franchise might be right for you. Snip-its is looking to expand throughout the U.S. To see where we are growing and learn more about this exciting children’s franchise opportunity with Snip-its Haircuts for Kids, we invite you to request our Snip-its Franchise Report.
