Top 5 Plus Reasons to Own a Franchise!

Posted by Janon Otto on Wed, Jun 13, 2018 @ 13:06 PM

5reasons.jpg"YOU ARE DOING WHAT!? That's the question we heard most when we told our friends and families that we were franchising a Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids," says Janon Otto CEO of Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids Franchising - as well as a multi-unit franchisee for Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids. "They would also ask us what franchising is, and if we had gone crazy! Looking back, it's obvious that although there are franchises all over the place, most people have no idea what a franchise is. That's why the Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids franchising toolkit (available below) is so important. It really helps explain what franchising is, as well as the advantages of owning your own franchise business."

Ultimately though, it's important to understand that a franchise is a business model. When a business owner decides to expand their business, they have options.  One of those options is to franchise.  Franchising allows others to own their own company yet use the name, logo, and systems of the franchise business owner (the franchisor). And although a franchisee is responsible for the success or failure of their franchise location, there are some significant advantages to franchise ownership. This includes the following...

1. The franchisee doesn't not have to come up with their own unique business idea!
2. The franchisee can use the systems that have already been developed and used successfully by others, which dramatically shortens the learning curve!
3. The franchisee gets training and support with a business partner who knows and cares about the success of their new business.
4. If the franchise system is progressive, the franchisee doesn't have to worry about ongoing costs or keeping up with trends needed to develop the concept further, as the franchisor is responsible for this. Meanwhile, as the system grows, the name brand recognition grows - thus growing the business of the franchisee!
5. Tools to use for advertising and graphic design / marketing is usually provided as well.

And there is a BIG bonus to being in touch with business owners who are all trying to do the same think you are is a wonderful thing - many heads are much better than one!

Shear Madness Franchising franchises Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids salons. We have worked with franchise stores in providing franchisee support (in order to encourage continual growth and business success), and have sometimes seen the unexpected happen! When it does, we help by identifying and helping with challenges that might arise for franchisees. Additionally, we work to present options that can help prevent these events as well. As many franchise owners may not have opened a business before, having someone who can advise them is a significant advantage of franchise ownership!

Are you interested in learning how YOU can join the Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids family and run your own successful small business? We are one of the fastest growing kids hair salons in the industry today!

Finding Franchise Success in the Next Recession

Posted by Jim Otto on Fri, May 11, 2018 @ 13:05 PM

SuccessI recently attended a webinar with one of the largest franchising financing lenders in the United States. I would like to explain all the graphs that they showed us but the bottom line was this: all the signs point to the next recession hitting sometime in the next 24 months. 
  • Credit Card debt and margin buying of stocks are back to record levels.
  • The small business optimism indicator  is at record levels (this is a contrarian indicator). 
  • Retail rents are at extreme levels causing over building, even though demand is decreasing  for retail space! 
 
But what I was most interested in was a chart of the top 15 franchises according to the SBA. I can't tell you those names, but what I can tell you is some commonalities they had. 
  • Four of the top 15 were child related.
  • Most all were recession resistant. 

At Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids we feel like we combine both of these traits. As most parents look at a haircut as a necessity and not an option, and a haircut will never be replaced on the internet! Parents will always spend money on their children. They will cut out a lot of luxuries and services for themselves, but never a service that makes their children look better and feel better about themselves!

There has never been a better time, ever!

Posted by Jim Otto on Tue, Jan 16, 2018 @ 12:01 PM

Growing.jpgThere has possibly never been a better time to start a franchise business, ever. Not only is the franchising model proven, but with a pro-business administration in Washington, the regulatory, and tax environment, along with consumer spending power has never been better! Please don't take my comments as a political endorsement of any politician or political party. I simply think that the facts stand on their own.

For example:

  • 4.1% unemployment rate is at historic lows 
  • Consumer sentiment on the economy is high and improving
  • The stock market is at record highs
 
This begs the question, will the good times continue? And if so, what franchises should I be looking at? A  good place to start is by asking yourself what type of business you see yourself operating. You'll also need to give an honest personal assessment in regards to the type of hours you'd like to operate, what you enjoy doing and what you're truly passionate about. Then you will want to look at franchises with strong brand recognition, a good track record of performance and a good reputation between past and present franchisees.  
 
Do your homework, make sure your significant other is on board, and get your financing in place. Then go for it! Because the way I see it, there's never been a better time to start a franchise, ever!

5 Steps to Opening Your Own Kids Hair Salon!

Posted by Matthew S on Thu, Nov 16, 2017 @ 12:11 PM

5steps.jpgAre you or someone you know interested in owning your own business, but not sure how to go about it? Perhaps you're looking for an opportunity to diversify your portfolio, or gain a little more financial security for the future? Or maybe you just want a change of pace, and want to find a way to help make a positive difference in your community? Whatever the case may be, Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids is currently experiencing rapid growth in this profitable industry. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, America's salons and spas do around $46 billion in sales annually (see professional beauty association)! And with opportunities all across the United States to own your own kids hair salon franchise business, perhaps now is the time to take the first step towards finding out how YOU can become a part of the Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids family! Following are our five important steps towards potentially owning your own fantastic kids hair salon!
 
1. Take time to investigate!  Is running a kids salon right for you?  Can you do it on your own, or will you need help?  Joining a franchise system provides help - but they are not all created equally, nor do they all have the same culture, etc.  Not only are there quite a number of hair salon franchises available out there, but there's a number of kids hair salon franchises too. And understandably, they aren't all the same either. Some may have different costs associated with them, or different ways of trying to help a franchise owner achieve business success. So make sure you take the time to carefully research those options which are most appealing to you by talking with the franchisor, taking a look at their franchise documents (like the item 7) and discussing how the franchise system works with other franchisees who have invested into it.  How much support do they offer?  Is there a significant operating manual?  How long is training?  Are there good systems in place to prevent theft, train staff, communicate with the franchisor, continued development for the future?
 
2. Explore Your Finances! As you might guess, starting up a business takes a lot of time and money. Prospective franchisees may have a significant amount of savings in place, while others might have to secure some additional financing options through business loans or partnerships. Some of the ways you can determine just how much you'll need is by talking to the franchisor of the system you're interested in. When you do, be sure to ask them about licensing fees, franchising fees, costs for technology (computers, televisions, etc), how much rental space for your business might be, furniture costs, employment and insurance costs, utilities and retail. Again, this is where documents like the item 7 can be very useful!
 
3. Select Your Space Carefully! A great franchisor will help franchisees research the demographics of an area, and will assist in selecting the right site for your business. Shear Madness Franchising, for example, will carefully analyze demographic data and even travel to the area to help the franchisee in determining which locations might be best suited for their kids hair salon. For example, some areas might not have many kids that live close by, there might be a competitor already there, or the drive-by or walk-by traffic might be too low. Additionally, a franchisor should help assist in rent negotiation and making sure there are no hidden fees or unusual situations involved with a potential space.
 
4. Hire the Right Staff! Sometimes it can be quite a struggle finding the right people to manage and work at your new business. However, franchisors can help in this area by providing resources, marketing materials or advertising to help in hiring staff. They also help in training staff, and assisting managers and employees in adhering to the franchise system (which in turn helps contribute to your business being successful).
 
5. Network and Set Realistic Goals! While running your own business and making a positive difference in your community can be extremely rewarding, as stated above, it can take a lot of time and money too. Be sure to set realistic goals for your business that can be achieved without burning you out, or putting undue stress on family relationships. Also, it can be a good idea to network with other franchisees within the franchise system, or join professional trade organizations for the ideas and encouragement that can come from fellow business owners. However, a great franchise system will help provide many of the resources you need so that you don't feel like you're going at it alone. For example, Shear Madness Franchising franchises Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids salons. We have worked with franchise stores in providing franchisee support (in order to encourage continual growth and business success), and have sometimes seen the unexpected happen!  When it does, we help by identifying and helping with challenges that might arise for franchisees. Additionally, we work to present options that can help prevent these events as well. As many franchise owners may not have opened a business before, having someone who can advise them is a significant advantage of franchise ownership!
