2018: A Year of Record Revenue & Growth!

Posted by Matthew S on Fri, Jan 25, 2019 @ 12:01 PM

Continuing to build our brand & infrastructure was a major goal in 2018, as well as engaging franchise candidates who would like to join our Shear Madness family!

intranet2

We continued to build out our intranet site and make it a valuable hub of information for our franchise partners. Our intranet site houses our proprietary and award winning training manuals and modules along with housing our franchisee friendly library of marketing materials. 

redesign2

Additionally we redesigned our website to make it more mobile friendly and usable for customers looking for our locations, as well as to capture and inform more franchise candidates on our award winning system. After our redesign we had a top rated franchise media company grade our website and it received high marks for usability and overall appearance. You can visit it at Shear Madness Franchising. Let us know what you think!

francomparebutton3

As with most franchise systems, building our brand is a constant goal. In 2018 we were awarded the Number One Children's salon franchise in America by Francompare, an independent rating service based in Oakland California. Francompare uses a sophisticated 45 point rating system when grading franchises and has an exhaustive database of franchise disclosure documents that they comb through before they give out their franchise winners. 

2019a

We look forward to 2019 and to continue to build on what is most important to us: being selective in our franchise awarding process and awarding franchises to those candidates that understand our culture. Equally important to us is giving our current franchisees the ongoing support, training and marketing assistance that they need to be successful. We also strive to create an over the top customer experience. At Shear Madness Haircuts for kids, Where Every Child Matters is more than just a slogan, it's what we believe in and why we do what we do. It's why we exist! We're confident that 2019 will be our best year ever!

The Pain That You're Missing in Franchise Selection?!?

Posted by Jim Otto on Thu, Nov 15, 2018 @ 16:11 PM

ouchMany of you may have seen a show on TV called Shark Tank. If you haven't, entrepreneurs attempt to convince 6 highly successful business people as to why they should invest their money in the next great business idea. Most businesses start this way and unfortunately it's probably one of the biggest reasons for business failure! 
 
Many people start their search for a franchise without measuring the most important thing: are there customers for the franchise? More importantly - and don't miss this - is doing what you are doing so PAINFUL (so-to-speak) for the customer to do themselves, that they have to come to you?  In business we call this the Shark Bite (no correlation to the Shark Tank). If your customer can do it themselves or go to you, well that may be like a mosquito bite - and it may be a nuisance that they are willing to live with. However if the customer's pain feels something like a shark bite, then customers will be eager to pay you to ease their pain!  
 
Great businesses and franchises begin by solving a customer problem.  This is why it's so important to try and figure out if the franchise that you are buying solves the pain your customers are feeling. For example, take our Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids salon franchise. I know that many of you reading this may be parents, and let's be honest...have you ever tried to cut your two year old's hair? Trust me, it's a shark bite,  and our customers are more then happy to have one of our award winning stylist ease there pain vs. trying to do it on their own. And with our TVs and XBox games  at every station to help provide a positive distraction for their children, they end up coming back for years!
 
So before you select a franchise, focus on the BIG pain point. Remember that any big problem is a big opportunity, and customers will be more then happy to pay you to ease their pain.

Exploring a Children's Salon Franchise

The Quickest Way to Start YOUR Successful Business!

Posted by Jim Otto on Thu, Nov 15, 2018 @ 13:11 PM

rampuptimeOf all the reasons to choose a franchise versus going it alone, ramp-up time is one of the most import. I get called from time to time and the conversation typically goes something like this, "Hey, I found you guys online. I have a GREAT children's salon and I really think you guys might be interested in buying it!" I will tell you from experience the two phrases, "great business" and "I want to sell it" don't really go together. Typically when I am presented with the numbers, there's one thing that stands out: the business took a long time to ramp-up, which caused the business owner to burn through a lot of his working capital. In a well run franchise system your ramp-up time should be greatly accelerated for the following reasons:
 
* Build Out Assistance - If the franchise that you are looking at is "turn-key", then all of your furniture, fixtures, supplies and architectural plans are provided. This allows you to get open sooner! And when you get open sooner you start to produce revenue faster, which allows your working capital to last longer.
 
* Training -  Think about it, can you think of ANY job that doesn't take some training? Then why do potential business owners make the mistake of thinking they can open a business and run it on the fly without any knowledge of how it works? And one more thing...doesn't it make sense to drastically reduce your learning curve? If it does, then I would strongly consider a franchise vs going it alone. 
 
* Ongoing Support - As a business scales it needs to be able to handle more and more volume without harming the customer service or experience. Being able to call your Franchisor for guidance with questions  (like when to add additional staff and other important issues) when your business is growing is a big advantage of being part of a franchise system. 
 
* Marketing - Almost always when you research on some of the reasons that businesses fail, you'll probably discover that ineffective marketing comes up in the top 5. A well run franchise should be able to tell you the most effective ways to get your customers through the door and get people talking about your business. 
 
One of the biggest challenges that you will face in business is ramping it up quickly! When your business starts off strong and ramps up quickly, it will take a lot of the stress off of you as the owner and will allow you to scale the business. Because of the past experience and systems that are associated with a well run franchise, franchising offers a huge advantage over going it alone!

Franchising Your Retirement

Posted by Jim Otto on Thu, Oct 11, 2018 @ 13:10 PM

retirementMany of you may never have seen this before, but the Social Security Administration used to send you in the mail what your monthly Social Security benefit would be at retirement (this info can now be accessed online on their website). What always stuck out to me was a statement on the front page, " Social security should not be your only source of retirement income, you will need to have other sources of income at retirement".  
 
I was recently asked the following question  on a social media forum that I was participating in: "Is a franchise a good way to create additional retirement income?" My answer is both "yes" and "no". 
  • Yes - If you do your homework and you understand the time commitment that it's going to take to own and manage a business. 
  • No - If you are looking for a totally passive income opportunity like a rental property. Most franchises will require you to have business skills and the ability to manage people.
 
  • Yes - Because most franchise's earn between 10 and 15%, well above current rates that banks and bonds are paying.
  • No - If you have a low tolerance for risk. There is no guarantee that if you buy a franchise you will be successful.  
 
Creating retirement income comes down to diversifying your portfolio into as many income producing  assets that you can find. Because of the return and the limited options in this low yield environment, a Franchise may be the perfect  option for you.

The Best Franchise in Child Hair Care!

Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids is really proud to have recently been selected as the “winner” of the 2018 FranCompare™ Franchise Recognition Program. After comparing and weighing over 40 FDD-based data points for four of the major franchise systems in the Child Hair Care industry, Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids received the highest score!

Janon Otto, CEO of Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids, as well as owner of two Shear Madness locations, says that, "We have worked hard to provide services to our franchisees that other franchise systems do not have.  We are constantly looking for ways to increase margins, and other opportunities for our franchisees to increase profits.  We also have worked hard to provide an internal intranet service that helps not only owners, but all employees to do their jobs better!  Our franchisees are wonderful and we all share information that helps everyone get better!  

Janon also notes that, "Shear Madness Franchising is open with figures from all of our locations, from service sales detail, down to detailed retail sales so that we can all learn from each other and motivate our staff to be the best that they can be within the system!  We are never finished with our goal of developing the 'Franchise system by which all others are measured!'"

With its extensive product line of books, websites, databases, and consulting services, the World Franchising Network is a preeminent supplier of reliable, up-to-date and easy-to-use information on franchising. The primary focus of FranCompare™ is to determine those franchise systems that have better identifiable performance metrics than their direct competitors. FranCompare™ and the World Franchising Network are also committed to assisting individuals in their quest for self-employment and business ownership. They seek to provide prospective franchisees with the most comprehensive and up-to-date information on the franchise systems we consider the “best” from over 4,000 active North American franchisors. They also feel strongly that the operating and system advantages that franchising offers make it the preferred avenue for 95% of those who want to go into business on their own. Want to learn more?
