If you are thinking about opening a hair salon—or perhaps you already own a hair salon and you’re looking for a way to grow your business—let us first congratulate you on choosing to invest in an exciting, fun, and thriving industry.
As you consider your options for opening a hair salon, we encourage you to look into investing in a franchise. There are distinct advantages to becoming a franchise owner, as opposed to going into spa ownership on your own. Three of these advantages include:
- Brand recognition
- Support system
- Industry Experience
Keep reading to learn how franchising beats solo entrepreneurship, and the specific ways that Marilyn Monroe Spas makes the most of these benefits.
A Hair Salon Franchise Has…
A recognizable brand can be a game changer in virtually any industry. Consumers appreciate knowing that anytime they go to a specific restaurant, store, or spa they can expect the same service and products. When your clients recognize your brand, they perceive your business a certain way and strong brands demonstrate quality.
Marilyn Monroe Spas is an emerging franchise, but our brand is immediately recognizable because of our iconic namesake. Marilyn Monroe personifies glamour and beauty, which makes her the perfect face for a salon and spa franchise. Marilyn Monroe’s iconic status elevates our brand, making us instantly recognizable across the world.
People hear the name Marilyn Monroe and immediately think of beauty, exacting standards, and high-class. Our brand strives to fit this image with each of our locations and services.
…A Support System
Opening a hair salon on your own will mean that you are your own support system. Any time you need help with marketing, bookkeeping, deciding on services, or any other facet of owning your business, you will have only yourself on whom you can rely. In contrast, when you become a franchise owner, you will have a support system that can help you through many of the questions that come with owning and operating your business.
The Marilyn Monroe Spas franchise resources help our franchisees navigate the first stages of business ownership. Some of these resources include:
- Real Estate: Selecting the right location is one of the most important decisions you can make as a business owner. Not only do we have access to top real estate firms all over the nation, but our teams also help you design and build out your salon to make it fit the Marilyn look.
- Training: As a franchisee, you will learn the ins and outs of our brand during training at our corporate headquarters. Our training and operations team continues to prepare you for owning a Marilyn Monroe Spas franchise with on-site training and ongoing updates.
- Marketing: In-house marketing professionals and creative teams help you design and implement marketing strategies that bring customers into your salon and spa. In addition, we have pre-designed printed materials that you can use to market your business with little effort on your part.
...Experience in the Industry
No matter how much experience you have in any industry, it never hurts to have a little bit more. Venturing into business on your own means relying on your own experience entirely, as you won’t have a network on whom you can fall back; however, when you work with a franchise brand, you can benefit from the experience of your home office.
At Marilyn Monroe Spas, our management team has more than 30 years combined experience in the spa and hospitality industry. This experience has helped us create our exciting brand that is transforming the salon and spa industry.
