These results are indicative of Fantastic Sams' enhanced expansion plans and renewed focus on development in growing metropolitan markets nationwide. New salons have opened in numerous markets including Los Angeles, Atlanta, San Antonio and Minneapolis and Fantastic Sams will continue targeting most major metropolitan areas throughout the US for additional franchise growth.
"We are thrilled about Fantastic Sams' expansion and the ability to bring our superior hair care services to even more salon guests," said Jeff Sturgis, Vice President, Franchise Sales & Development. "Our new franchise partners come from a diverse background and have committed to opening one to 5 salons each."

The average initial investment to open a Fantastic Sams Hair Salon (ranging from $100,000 to $225,000) and the company's fixed fee royalties make it one of the most competitive opportunities in the industry.
