LOS ANGELES, July 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Image Studios 360 is introducing its Utah-based beauty business incubator platform into new territories for franchising opportunities aimed at the California, Texas and Florida markets. While there are several companies that rent common spaces to various kinds of targeted start ups, Image Studio 360 has distinguished itself in five branded locations by also providing a comprehensive, beauty industry-specific system of business support for hairstylists, estheticians, nail technicians, massage therapists, permanent makeup artists, spray tanners, and others. For potential franchises in the new markets, the company is prospecting single level retail spaces from about 3,500 to 7,000 square feet, preferably within stand alone buildings in brand compatible thriving suburban and urban areas. Other considerations include sufficient parking and convenient proximity to major freeways. Depending on various factors, build out cost start from $250K to about $500K. The three major markets were selected for their specific salon culture of booth renting that fits squarely with the company business model.
Image Studios 360 seeks to partner with franchise owners who will be equally committed to helping independent beauty professionals build their individualized brands within the company umbrella as they are to becoming a vital part of their respective commercial communities. "Image Studios 360 has always dedicated itself to long-term growth both for our individual proprietors as well as franchisees," says co-founder Jason Olsen. "We bring vibrant life to the area and retail centers where we are located. Our average salon has 30 studios, and each professional has an average of 125 clients, so we generate significant foot traffic from 3,000 to 4,000 clients each month." Recent research figures indicate the US salon business as a $60B industry comprising of an estimated 350,000 salons and barber shops nationwide including approximately 70,000 home-based practitioners. The Image Studios 360 franchise program is the ideal way to tap into the latter as yet undeveloped talents who may be looking to take their business to a new level. This will enable the franchisee to offer their client stylists with a broad array of exclusive Image Studios 360 services including single to larger studio spaces, various on-site amenities, customized websites, print ready marketing materials, business and creativity training seminars along with practical strategies and operations.
