Are salon suite franchises profitable?

Whether you’re a business executive looking to diversify your income, or an entrepreneur eager to expand your portfolio, salon suite franchises make a harmonious fit for many business personas thanks to its reoccurring income, heightened demand and semi-absentee model.

For those new to the salon suite business, you may have many pertinent questions. While our franchise development team is happy to assist with determining whether salon suite ownership fits your needs, let’s break down some of the most common questions:

What is a salon suite franchise?

Let’s get down to the basics. The salon suite business model is a property management concept, allowing salon and lifestyle professionals of different specialties to work under one roof within individual suites. This layout allows the lifestyle professionals to have their own salon suite within a larger, well-located salon.

Salon suite concepts like Phenix Salon Suites provide furnished salons with only a month-to-month commitment, along with the training, events and technology to assist these small business professionals.

Are salon suite franchises profitable?

Phenix Salon Suite franchise partners have the potential to achieve lucrative financial success. The net profit for a salon suite depends on size, location and population. In 2021, the top 50% of Phenix Salon Suites franchisees saw an EBITDA of $207K while the highest reports was $522K

Plus, the salon and spa industry are incredibly recession resistant. As we like to say, “hair always grows.” There is never going to be an “app” to replace going to the hair salon for a haircut and color. With minimal required hours a week for franchisees, this allows your money to work for you.

Do I need experience with salons to be a salon suite franchise owner?

No, you do not need salon experience to successfully own a salon suite. Our most successful franchise owners come from a business background, looking for passive income and a willingness to learn. We have 100+ franchise partners from various backgrounds. While lifestyle professionals don’t rely on franchise partners for their success, it helps tremendously if franchise partners can take an interest in their tenants.
