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!
 
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!

bestofcity17web.jpgSome of our readers may recall that the Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids Salon Franchise in Albuquerque was voted Best of the City in 2014, 2015 AND 2016. We are excited to say that they've done it again, and have been voted by readers as Albuquerque The Magazine's Best of the City for 2017! This is quite an honor to be sure, as numerous votes were cast in order to spotlight those businesses, organizations, restaurants, and people that help make Albuquerque such a great place to live!

Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids in Albuquerque is noted as not being just another kids' salon, but as a unique place where mounted cars for styling chairs, televisions and Xbox games at every station help make the haircutting experience fun and special. Additionally, Shear Madness also has an award-winning YOUniquey Boutiquey where kids and parents can shop a fantastic selection of toys, jewelry, kids hair products, hair accessories and more. And to top it off, by mixing in ShEAR Dazzled Ear Piercing (a unique ear piercing experience), the La De Da Spa, themed parties, and a great styling staff - customers are sure to find something to bring a smile to their face! 

Kimberly Abeyta, owner of the Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids in Albuquerque says that, "We are grateful for being voted 'Best of the City Children’s Salon' 4 years in a row! Thank You Albuquerque for making Every Child Matter!" Kimberly also notes how hard the Shear Madness team works to bring smiles to their customer's faces each and every day by building up personal relationships and striving to create a special memory and fun atmosphere for kids and parents alike. Additionally, Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids in Albuquerque has really perfected the art of not only giving a great haircut, but also hosting fabulous kids Birthday parties! For example, the spa party concept has been a real hit in Albuquerque. Girls are treated to wearing spa robes, getting mini manis, twisty updos, glittery makeup, and a glitter tattoo. They sing Karaoke and get to choose a headband from the YOUniquey boutiquey to take home!

Janon Otto, CEO of Shear Madness Franchising noted that, "Shear Madness in Albuquerque has always been so concerned with excellent customer service since day one!  We are so proud of this store, the stylists are excellent, the parties - the best, and now they are doing an excellent job with ear piercing as well!  We see this store continuing to build its clientele and remaining - The Best in Albuquerque!"

Make a Positive Difference TODAY!  Samantha writes that, "My family had an amazing experience at Shear Madness! We have a son that has a sensory disorder and getting a haircut has been a nightmare for a long time. He got to pick out what car he was sitting in and what show he watched and although he still had a few meltdowns it was nothing compared to haircuts in he past. It was also great to have a stylist that understood and was patient with him. Also it was nice to see a stylist that was fluent in ASL! What a great place that was inclusive for all children!"

Where Every Child Matters!

Posted by Matthew S on Tue, Sep 19, 2017 @ 14:09 PM

From stylists who truly care about their customers, to store owners who work hard at helping make a positive difference in their communities for kids and their families, Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids is THE kids hair salon where EVERY child matters! Whether it's helping out a special needs child with a haircut, creating a memorable experience for a child's birthday party, or helping boys and girls of all ages (and maybe even some adults too) look and feel great about who they are - we love going that extra mile to bring a smile!
 
For example, Samantha recently visited one of our Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids locations, and had this to say about her visit, "My family had an amazing experience at Shear Madness! We have a son that has a sensory disorder and getting a haircut has been a nightmare for a long time. He got to pick out what car he was sitting in and what show he watched and although he still had a few meltdowns it was nothing compared to haircuts in the past. It was also great to have a stylist that understood and was patient with him. Also it was nice to see a stylist that was fluent in ASL! What a great place that was inclusive for all children!"
 
everychildmatters.jpg
Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids is of course known for our amazing haircuts for kids, with vehicle chairs for children to sit in and watch a video or play a game while they get their haircut. Older kids and adults have regular chairs, but can also watch a video or play a game too (if they choose). Additionally, we also offer great ear piercing experiences, cool parties, amazing toys, fun kids games, hairbows, haircare products, jewelry, and so much more. Each of our stores is geared toward being a bright and happy place where kids and their parents can feel right at home, and have a fun experience they hopefully won't soon forget!
