Phenix Salon Suites Ranks on Entrepreneur Magazine’s Franchise 500® List for 11th Consecutive Year

Internationally Renowned Salon Suite Concept Recognized Among Top 100 National Brands

ENCINITAS, Calif. – Phenix Salon Suites announced today that it ranked on the Entrepreneur Magazine’s Franchise 500® list, considered the best and most comprehensive franchise ranking in the world, for the 11th consecutive year.

Placing 89th overall, the salon suites concept has been rapidly growing across the nation for over a decade and, after being the first US based salon suite brand to open in Europe, Phenix continues to be a leading force within the competitive salon suites category in the United States.

The stellar recognition, both across the entire list and within its category, including being voted the #1 Salon Suite brand by Entrepreneur Magazine in 2022, highlights the successful growth of the brand in recent years. In 2023 alone, Phenix opened 40 new locations, including its newest international space in Birmingham, UK, bringing the brand’s total number of salon facilities to over 380 worldwide.

“It’s an enormous honor to be recognized in the Franchise 500® list for the 11th consecutive year,” said Brian Kelley, President & CEO at Phenix Salon Suites. The brand’s continued growth is a testament to the hard work, dedication, and resilience of our corporate team and our incredible franchisee network. Our expansion reflects the great potential of our highly successful salon franchise model and the demand from customers and salon professionals nationwide. We can’t wait to continue this momentum into 2024 and roar past the 400 mark of salon suites open worldwide.”

While no salon experience is necessary, the most successful franchisees have working knowledge of commercial real estate, general business experience, and are well-capitalized with minimum liquidity of $300,000 or more. Financing is available through our lending partners.

In the 45 years since its first release, the Franchise 500® list has become not only a competitive measure for franchisors, but also a primary research tool for those interested in franchising. Phenix Salon Suite’s position on the list is indicative of its success as a franchise company.
