Fantastic Sams Salon Franchise Experiencing a Surge in Franchise Development

2017 is proving to be a breakout development year for the iconic no-appointment salon franchise

BEVERLY, Mass., July 18, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- 2017 is shaping up to be a record franchise development year for Fantastic Sams, one of the original hair salon franchise systems. Led by a sleek new salon design, attractive financing for franchise owners and open territory, Fantastic Sams is posting one of its best development years in the past decade.

This wave of new development follows a complete redesign of the Fantastic Sams salon and a brand refresh. New owners are joining Fantastic Sams through the purchase of existing units, opening new salons, or a combination of existing salons and new locations.

"When we set out to redesign our salons, we had one goal in mind: revolutionize the value salon space," said Linda Chadwick, Fantastic Sams president and CEO. "Our New Image Salon design does just that. It raises the bar in quality of experience for our clients, who don't feel like they're in a value salon. They're getting the same great service we've always prided ourselves on delivering, but now they're in an atmosphere that feels higher-end, like a salon in New York or Europe and potential franchise owners are taking notice."

Fantastic Sams is the pioneer of the no-appointment-needed, full-service hair salon. Since 1974, it has grown to nearly 1,100 locations. A part of the Dessange International group of hair salon franchises, Fantastic Sams is backed by an international network of research, development and franchise support. Unlike most value-segment haircut franchises, Fantastic Sams offers a full range of salon services, including the latest styles, color services, facial waxing and a complete line of branded shampoos, conditioners and styling products, all of which generate higher tickets and create larger potential margins in communities of all sizes.

Startup costs begin at just over $145,000 for a single salon, and the brand offers a time-tested business model matched with easy-to-obtain financing.

"When investors are exploring opportunities, they are looking for a few key items," said Jay Capperella, national sales director for Fantastic Sams. "They want a business that is scalable and can grow, they want it to be affordable to own and operate, and they want longevity. Fantastic Sams scores highly on all three fronts."
