TORONTO, Dec. 16, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Blo Blow Dry Bar, North America's original blow dry bar and the world's largest blow dry bar franchise, closes out 2021 with record-setting growth numbers and entrances into four new markets. The brand further solidifies its position as an industry leader, wrapping up the year with a goal shattering 37 signed agreements and a robust roster of openings lined up for the new year. In total, Blo Blow Dry Bar boasts 140 locations open and in development across the United States and Canada.
"We had big goals this year and I'm proud to say we surpassed set expectations," said Patrick Pantano, Vice President, Franchise Development, Blo Blow Dry Bar. "Between our devoted existing franchisees expanding their portfolios and adding new entrepreneurial-minded individuals to our system, the team is set up to continue building the Blo empire across North America."
Heading into 2021, Blo Blow Dry Bar set a goal to award 35 franchise agreements which was met and exceeded. Now, the growing franchise spans 30 states, having added new markets to its list including Indiana, New Hampshire and Washington. Earlier this year, the company signed its largest agreement that will bring six bars to Florida. This milestone was then trumped only a few months later by the now largest signed agreement in brand history – a 7-unit deal in Texas.
