Single Unit Salons

Many franchisees begin by purchasing a single-unit franchise agreement. This allows you to search for a location in any market that is not already under exclusive agreement by another franchisee.

Once you sign a lease, a radius protection is established for your salon, which in most markets is 2 miles. After you are up and running, you can purchase subsequent franchise agreements or consider an area development agreement.

Multi-Unit Salons

The best way to hold exclusive rights to develop and open multiple locations is through an Area Development Agreement. As an Area Developer, you will own the exclusive rights to a set of zip codes based on the number of agreements you purchase.

Demographic data such as population and total income determine the total number of zip codes. The Area Development Agreement allows you the flexibility to retain exclusivity on a set schedule, giving you time to find real estate and develop your market.
