February 17, 2017 // Franchising.com // SALT LAKE CITY - Children’s haircuts can be shear torture for both parents and kids, but the new Cookie Cutters Haircuts for Kids located at 4316 Lawrenceville Hwy opening this week hopes to alleviate some of that stress. This location marks the first of multiple salons coming to the sold-out greater Atlanta market.
“I am thrilled to join the Cookie Cutters Haircuts for Kids team and embark on this entrepreneurial journey,” said co-owner Bo Crawford. “Owning my own business has always been a dream of mine. And with my background in retail coupled with the lessons of parenthood, I believe a child-focused salon is the perfect fit.”
After serving four years in the Army National Guard, Bo held an extensive 20-year career in the retail industry. He served in leadership positions at companies, such as Target, Gamestop and Teavana. The salon is co-owned by Bo’s wife, Sara Crawford, who is a statistician and mother of two boys.
With the aim of offering all children a comfortable haircut experience, Cookie Cutters of Tucker is partnering with autism advocacy organization Autism Speaks. The organization will help teach Cookie Cutter stylists how to interact with children that have sensory issues and how they can provide a stress-free experience.
As one of the first children-only hair salons in the United States, Cookie Cutters offers an interactive haircut experience that both children and parents won’t soon forget. The salons are outfitted with an in-store playground, televisions and gaming systems, and a variety of automotive, aerospace and other themed chairs. And with a balloon, sucker and a smile at the end of each haircut, the Cookie Cutters experience provides kids with a fun-filled haircut experience.
