Phenix Salon Suites Expands Northeastern Footprint with Three Multi-Unit Deals
Multi-Unit Operators Bring Premier Salon Suite Concept to New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania
October 21, 2020 // Franchising.com // NORTHEAST - Phenix Salon Suites, the leading boutique salon suite franchise, is expanding its presence across the Northeast. In recent weeks the brand moved forward with new and existing multi-unit operators who will grow the Phenix Salon Suites concept throughout New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
Among the esteemed franchisees is Paul DeFalco, a multi-unit owner of two Phenix salons open in Cherry Hill, New Jersey and Bala Cynwyd, Pennsylvania. He joins the brand in its Northeast expansion by signing a lease to open his third salon in New Jersey.
In addition, two couples have teamed up and signed an agreement to bring three Phenix Salon Suites to Pittsburgh. Jim and Lee Ann McKenzie alongside Adam and Trinette Cunningham are leading the charge with Pennsylvania growth and are expected to open their first salon in 2021.
“It is exciting to see the caliber of individuals that Phenix Salon Suites attracts as franchisees and the Northeastern bunch are no exception,” said Brian Kelley, president of Phenix Salon Suites. “The operational experience that the new franchisees bring paired with their management abilities will no doubt align with our model and play a critical role in establishing an even stronger brand presence for Phenix Salon Suites in the Northeast.”
New to the Phenix Salon Suites family this month, Gabriel Abrams, a former stylist that transitioned into opening his own salon, signed an agreement to open two Phenix Salon Suites - one in New York and one in Arizona.
“As the owner of a traditional salon for the past 10 years, opening additional locations with an established salon suite brand was the perfect investment to continue not only expanding the Phenix brand in the Northeast, but also my ownership as a salon operator,” said Abrams. “I started my career as a stylist and the attractive amenities that Phenix Salon Suites provides its salon professionals are top-notch. The suite-based model is the future of the salon industry as many professionals have a desire to become their own boss and the individual suites sustaining built-in social distancing procedures, are the perfect salon options to bring to the Northeast.”
Phenix Salon Suites was one of the first boutique salon suite concepts to offer luxury, spacious suites for independent salon and lifestyle professionals to rent on a month-to-month basis and become their own boss. The suites are equipped with upscale amenities including a styling chair, shampoo chair, two cabinets, a hair dryer and a shampoo bowl that hooks onto the sink. The salon essentials are designed to meet professional’s basic needs while providing them the opportunity to customize their suites.
The brand has its sights set on expanding both nationally and internationally with experienced multi-unit franchise operators in Houston, Chicago, Columbus, Detroit, Boston, Upstate New York and New York City. Phenix Salon Suites also has room to grow in Washington, Oregon, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Northern California and in other markets.
While no salon experience is necessary, the most successful franchisees have working knowledge of commercial real estate, general business experience and are well-capitalized with the ability to invest $300,000 or more. Financing is available through our lending partners.
