We’ll help you analyze potential sites so you can select the most competitive area to build your best-in-class Sola location. We’ll give you all our commercial real estate pointers, and our legal staff can provide guidance and assistance with reviewing and negotiating the lease.
A high-quality build-out at the best price is the end result through preferred contractors we can recommend. Plus, you’ll have access to our in-house design services and design vendor so you can complete each modern studio with cabinets, lighting, chairs and mirrors.
The Sola Home office will walk you through every step of the process to successfully opening and operating your Sola. We also host regular trainings and conferences, both in person and online through webinars and conference calls, where you’ll be able to meet and network with some of the most experienced, supportive franchisees in the industry. Plus, you can tap into our dedicated franchise support team, system-wide newsletters, discussion board and resource center.
Leverage national marketing initiatives at a local level with guidance from our in-house Local Marketing Director. Our tested and proven marketing strategies and tactics from our team of marketing experts are packaged up for you and provided alongside campaign-specific training so you can easily execute campaigns on a local level to attract beauty professionals in your area to rent studios.
We want your beauty professionals to work smarter, not harder. A main selling point to beauty professionals is our comprehensive business support that gets them ready to operate their salon successfully from day one. Our proprietary apps Sola Pro (features include inspiration, education, deals and blogs) and SolaGenius (features include online booking, credit card processing, and analytics and reports) – along with a dedicated Sola web page – make that possible.
If you’re looking for a franchise that is established, has no or few employees, is appealing to landlords because technology won’t make it obsolete, empowers and supports entrepreneurs, and has simple, attractive unit level economics, then you’ll love our innovative real estate rental model. Your total investment will vary depending on the size of your build-out and other factors, but the amount for a single location will range from about $530K to $1.7M. Potential franchise owners should have a net worth of $1.5M and liquid assets totaling $500K.
