Diesel Barbershop

The first Diesel Barbershop opened in 2011 in San Antonio, TX. It’s the modern-day version of the vintage corner barbershop, and appeals to what today’s men want in a haircut experience: part barbershop, part old-school record store, and part arcade. In short, a Man-Cave for guys with high quality haircuts, shaves, beard trims and shoulder massages. All done while having a beverage.

Who is Diesel’s target audience? Diesel customers are male, 17 to 65 years old. Diesel also cuts boys hair.

Diesel customers are looking for a place where they can relax, maybe drink a beer, while getting their haircut & a shave. Free from the drama that sometimes comes with beauty salons or the cheap, quick cut hair-care chains. They are also looking for a more masculine atmosphere where they’re free to talk sports or whatever their interests are with their barber or other customers. In fact, customers sometimes will linger after their hair cut to finish their beer or try to set the high score on Donkey Kong.


Fantastic Sam's

Fantastic Sams is one of the largest full-service hair care franchises with over 1,200 salons in North America. Our full-service salons offer quality hair care services, including cuts, perms and color, for the entire family. Being a full-service salon means our owners benefit from a wider range of revenue sources and a higher average ticket per customer than our competition. By catering to men, women and children, we do not limit our business to only one segment. Fantastic Sams is proud to have its own line of professional hair care products, available only in our salons, thus creating an additional revenue opportunity for our owners.

We are seeking owners/investors who are interested in building a business, not buying a job, by developing multiple locations. We currently offer 1, 3, 5 and 10 unit licenses. When you join the Fantastic Sams family of franchisees, you will receive both local and national support through our on-going management training, educational programs and national conferences, as well as advertising and other benefits. Our on-going support focuses on those things that make a difference to the bottom line--recruiting and retention of stylists, training for owners, managers and stylists and marketing and product sales. No hair care experience is required.


Great Clips

Great Clips, Inc., headquartered in Minneapolis, Minnesota and established in 1982, is the largest brand in the hair care industry. Our salons are conveniently located in strip malls in 138 markets throughout the U.S. and Canada. No appointments are necessary for men, women, and children to get haircuts and perms at competitive prices.

A distinct and enduring advantage of having over 3,100 salons under one brand makes us clearly the dominant presence in our industry. Combining the experience of Great Clips, along with your candidate's business acumen, together we will continue to be a strong force within the $55 billion hair care industry.

What really makes this business concept unique is the fact that it is recession resistant, simple and has steady growth; you will be hard pressed to find a better business that meets all three.


Images Studios 360

Simple. Stable. Scalable. That is what investors and franchisees love about Image Studios 360.

The Image Studios 360 salon studio concept consists of a large retail space around 5,000 square feet and build out of 28-32 salon studios (each ranging from 100 square feet - 250 square feet) that are leased to beauty professionals such as hair stylists, estheticians, nail techs and massage therapists who operate their own business within their studio.

Their systems, strategic marketing and the appeal of their brand helps keep studios fully leased out for optimal return on investment. This provides stable and predictable cash flow for their franchisees, which allows them to focus on growing additional locations or to pursue other interests.

The ongoing training and education programs provided for their tenants helps keep them successful and enables them to run their business better.

Enjoy the stability and strength of the beauty industry combined with the reliable rental income from their business model.

Lemon Tree Family Salons

Lemon Tree is Your Family Hair Salon®. They provide affordable, high-quality salon services and products for every member of the family. Using only brand name professional products such as Paul Mitchell®, they offer a full range of salon services including cutting and styling, blow-outs, smoothing, color services and more. Whether it's a child's first haircut or services for seniors, they care of the entire family’s hair care needs.

Lemon Tree provides Franchise Owners with brand recognition that is the direct result of decades of community outreach and marketing efforts. With a low cost of entry, multiple revenue streams, and prime territories available, they equip their Franchise Owners with the tools they need to make a return on their investment while offering plenty of flexibility and growth potential.

They are different than most salon franchises. Once a franchise is awarded, their owners become part of the family. With family-owned roots that date back over 50 years, and having been Franchise Owners in other systems, they understand what it means to commit time, money, and relationships to becoming an entrepreneur. It's not only about dollars and cents — it's about the people you’re doing business with. They genuinely care about their success.

  • Low Cost: The low cost of opening a Lemon Tree allows entrepreneurs to get into business quickly and with less risk.
  • Absentee Friendly: Perhaps one of the greatest advantages of owning a Lemon Tree is the ability to grow the business without the need to be onsite every day. Their Franchise Owners can own one salon or several while maintaining the flexibility in their lifestyle.
  • Scalable: When they combine lower start-up costs, with high revenue and profitability, they put themselves in a position to be able to grow their business quickly. At Lemon Tree, they are looking to award franchises to those individuals who want to reinvest their profits into additional salons.
  • Outstanding Unit Economics: Their numbers are industry leading! Top 10% of their salons average unit volume (AUV) is $522,777 and Top 50% average $348,362. 20% of theirr Franchise Owners own more than one salon.
  • Multiple Revenue Streams: They are a full service salon and have 6 streams of revenue: haircuts & styling, coloring, body-waves and perms, keratin treatments, facial waxing, and retail hair products.
  • Recession Resistant: Everyone gets their hair cut, colored, or styled no matter the economic situation. Because of their competitive prices, clients will often “trade down” to them because they are more affordable than other professional salons.
  • Flexibility & Growth: Lemon Tree offers flexibility and high growth potential for their Franchise Owners. They don’t have to be a salon professional or have experience in the hair industry. They will provide them with an established business model and personalized support backed by decades of experience.

Sharkey’s Cuts for Kids

“Passive ownership is what Sharkey’s is all about”, says CEO Scott Sharkey. They have been able to combine a passive ownership franchise with a model that is 100% recession-proof for today and years to come. Sharkey’s Cuts for Kids is not one of those trendy franchises where maybe you make back your ROI within 3-5 years before your concept gets replaced by something bigger, better, or more trendy. Their franchise offers people the opportunity to invest in a brand that has longevity, is fun to run, and is recession-proof with very little competition. Kids always need haircuts and you cannot get that on Amazon.

Their goal is to give people a passive ownership opportunity at a very nominal cost. Its longevity is an investment, giving owners the option to pass their business down to future generations.

  • Looking for passive owners who would like to stay in their current job and open multiple locations.
  • No hair experience necessary.
  • Interested in running the business from a remote location or from home.
  • Fairly good social media skills, but not required, as this can be outsourced.

Sharkey’s really sets itself apart from the competitors with their well planned design and unequaled entertainment factor. They don’t just cater to the youngest of children or one gender – they have positioned themselves in the market for kids of all ages (0-14 = longer retention rate), and adults as well! Once children come to the salon they want to come again and again for the overall experience. They have extremely high brand loyalty among their young customers and their parents.

The best designed kid’s salon franchise for attracting kids above the ages of 6. If your salon is too “baby-ish” or “cartoony” it will not attract the older kids. You cannot sustain a profitable business in this industry if you only focus on and attract kids between the ages of 0-6. Sharkey’s is the best at attracting all age kids because their salon is designed to appeal to little ones and older kids as well. They have something for everyone and that makes them a one-stop shop for busy parents. Sharkey’s is the ONLY kids salon designed with the older kids (ages 10-14) in mind. Sharkey’s offers the longest retention rate of customers in its industry because they cut hair for kids 0-14. Why would you invest in a children’s hair salon franchise that only attracts a small segment of the market when you can invest in Sharkey’s and ensure a larger base from which to pull your business?

Multiple revenue streams and state of the art salon software, the best in the industry. Franchisees can log into their salon desktop from the kitchen table or a laptop anywhere and see everything in real time.

Sharkey’s software allows customers to book appointments with their favorite stylist online. Approximately 70% of all appointments are being booked online at Sharkey’s corporate salon. The Franchisor will visit you personally and choose the perfect location for your Sharkey’s salon.


SmartStyle

Smart Style is one of the largest salon brands in the industry, backed by the global leader in hair care, Regis Corp. in partnership with Walmart, making this truly a unique opportunity. SmartStyle has been the preferred hair care vendor for Walmart for twenty years. Today they have approximately 2,700 corporately owned salons inside Walmart stores, and are making this available to franchisees for the first time!

The hair care industry is driven by a unique set of characteristics that are unmatched in business ownership! These attributes are what attracts professional men and women to their business, which becomes the building blocks that allow their franchisees to build successful businesses. Forget about cutting hair and look at the business as a business!

  • $65 billion industry
  • Built-in demand
  • Needs-based business
  • Recession-resistant
  • Under competitive
  • Technology-resistant
  • Simple & easy
  • Few employees

For Smart Style franchisees it’s not about cutting hair, it’s about growing a business! They are looking for professional men and women who know nothing about cutting hair and possess strong management and leadership skills, good business and financial acumen and a strong desire to succeed. The role of the owner is to run the business side of the business, while leaving the day-to-day operations and servicing of guests to their employees. This frees up the franchisees’ time to work “on their business,” not “in their business,” and enjoy more freedom and flexibility than they ever could have imagined!

SmartStyle franchisees benefit from:

Keeping their full-time jobs
  • Opening multiple units
  • Manager run salons

  • SportClips Haircuts

    Sport Clips has been offering franchises for the retail operation of "Sport Clips" stores since November 1995. The model grew from recognition that the old style barber shops were going away and that there were no locations that offered a well executed haircut at a decent price for guys. We developed the model to fit this need. We currently have over 700 stores operating across the US with 1000 licenses sold and approximately 300 franchisees. The model is based on multi unit ownership with our franchisees continuing to work at their full time careers as they build out the units. Typically, they will acquire 3 licenses. They are purchasing a business that allows them to have business ownership while they maintain their careers. When they do transition out they are still typically only vesting 12 to 15 hours per week on the business as it is a turnkey operation. We assist with the recruitment of the stylists and offer the staff training and ongoing operation support on an ongoing basis.

    • Features of business: Semi Absentee business where men and boys receive a well executed hair cut a reasonable price while watching sports on TV.
    • Function of the owner/daily tasks: Manage the Manager and primary function market business in local area. Owner will keep their full time job. Will focus on managing their managers and using the tools developed through a strong marketing department to educate the consumer about the services.
    • Desired background of prospects and Ideal candidate: Strong managerial and communication skills. Enjoys working with and developing people and marketing their store. This is a people business. Franchisees will work with the manager and oversee multiple units. Primary responsibility is to market the business and drive sales.

    SuperCuts

    Supercuts, part of the Regis Corporation family of brands, is the premier brand in the hair care industry! With 2,500 salons and brand recognition above 90%, Supercuts is the flagship brand of Regis Corporation, the global leader in hair care with 9,500 salons worldwide and system-wide revenue of $2 billion.

    The hair care industry is a $65 billion dollar-a-year business that most people know little about. The industry is highly fragmented, with little organized competition. Approximately 70% of the market share is controlled by independent operators, where the owner of the business cuts hair and generally lacks a sophisticated approach to running his or her business; the other 30% is controlled by national brands like ours! Our growth at Supercuts continues to come primarily from these independent salons that are not able to effectively compete in the marketplace, creating an enormous growth opportunity for franchisees in markets throughout North America!
