BOSTON, MA - (Marketwired - Oct 15, 2014) - Fantastic Sams hair salon franchise celebrated its 40th year as an iconic American brand by launching a top-to-bottom "Brand Evolution" at its biannual franchise conference, which was held recently in Las Vegas, Nevada. The brand, which saw record attendance at the event, is aggressively expanding in the wake of its acquisition by Dessange International, Europe's leading luxury hair salon franchise and beauty brand.
"As we enter our fifth decade, Fantastic Sams is undergoing a dramatic resurgence that's taking the brand strength we've earned over the past four decades to the next level," said Fantastic Sams President and COO Linda Chadwick. "Hair care is a highly stable and attractive industry for franchise investment, and we already have a loyal following and a much higher average ticket price than our direct competitors. Our new Brand Evolution will make Fantastic Sams the No. 1 hair salon in the country."
Founded in Memphis in 1974, Fantastic Sams pioneered the concept of a no-appointment, walk-in hair salon that caters to customers who need high-quality hair services. With more than 1,100 salons, Fantastic Sams is the oldest franchised unisex salon in North America. It is consistently ranked among the top franchises by industry experts and is regularly named to Entrepreneur magazine's Franchise 500 and Inc. magazine's Franchise 500|5000.
The full-service hair salon franchise, which offers services from haircuts and trend-right styles to color and facial waxing, is seeing earnings increase and has plans for new market expansion while continuing to build out mature markets. The Fantastic Sams Brand Evolution includes new haircutting systems, color and product lines, an upcoming store redesign and an entire range of new franchise support systems designed to help franchisees compete with value hair-cutting chains.
With an affordable entry point, Fantastic Sams is one of the few franchises an owner can run on a part-time basis. Our salons have a significantly higher average ticket price than cut-only chains, and franchisees receive the benefits of a proven brand in a stable, recession-resistant industry that's growing at 8 percent a year.
Fantastic Sams is seeking franchise owners in a variety of markets nationwide.
