SouthCaOpening.jpgFirst Opening Expected in Orange County this Fall. Shear Madness Franchising, LLC of Overland Park, Kansas announced the signing of an Area Development Agreement covering 5 counties in Southern California. The agreement allows for multiple locations to be developed over a number of years. Doctor Andrew Elmasri of Lake Forest, California, a managing partner of California Children’s Salons, LLC and President of CA Anesthesia of Laguna Niguel California signed the agreement with Shear Madness Franchising in early May. The agreement calls for California Children’s Salons to open and develop multiple locations over an extended period of time. “We have a growing demographic of young families in Southern California, and we are excited to bring the unique concept Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids offers to this area,” commented Elmasri. “After visiting with management in Kansas City earlier this year, we feel like the opportunities for positive expansion is a great fit for our area.”

WelcomeElmasri.jpgJanon Otto, CEO for Shear Madness Franchising, also sees many opportunities in the California market. “With California’s large population base and impressive demographics, this is certainly a market that we’ve been interested in,” commented Otto. “Additionally, as we recently opened in New York State in December of last year, it gives us a presence on both the East and West coast – as well as allowing us to continue our goal of providing a fun and memorable haircutting experience for children across the nation.” Paula Thurman, a partner in the Franchising Company and COO commented, “We’ve always felt like the kid-friendly atmosphere of our stores would do well in California, it just came down to finding the right partner. Dr. Elmasri and his team share the same values and principles that we do, and we’re excited to have California Children’s Salons expanding the Shear Madness Brand in California.”

Shear Madness Franchising LLC, was founded in 2010 to expand the Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids concept that was originally opened by Paula Thurman in 1997. Combining the magic of childhood with kids haircuts, parties, salon services and a fantastic kids boutique filled with toys, hair products, jewelry and more, Shear Madness currently has franchise locations open in Kansas, Missouri, Texas, Iowa, New York and New Mexico.
