Snip-its Looks to Create ‘Buzz’ with Cutting-Edge Kids Salon in San Jose
Child Hair Care and Entertainment Concept Targets Family-Focused Metro Area for Development
February 16, 2016 // Franchising.com // San Jose, CA – As the U.S. hair care market soars to staggering new heights, Snip-its, an innovative child-focused salon and entertainment concept, announced its expansion plans to move into San Jose. Catering to the high demand for child-specialized services, the nation’s fastest growing child hair care franchise plans to add 10 salons over the next five years. Snip-its executives are committed to the family-oriented San Jose market and are currently searching for the perfect franchisees to manage the business.
The Minneapolis based child hair care franchise currently has 63 locations across the county that provides friendly and knowledgeable staff, proprietary products, animated gadgets, computer games and a character filled entertaining environment geared to creating an enjoyable haircutting experience. Snip-its serves as a solution for parents who are looking for a way to untangle the challenges of trying to find a convenient haircutting experience for their children. Virtually unheard of in the hair care industry, the brand also implements a unique and one of a kind stylist training program specifically for children with Autism, as part of their partnership with the national Autism Speaks organization.
“There is a significant number of children in San Jose under the age of nine, giving us reason to believe that parents and kids alike are looking for a salon alternative that will provide a positive experience, opposed to one that is filled with drama and tears,” said Kim Ellis, Vice President of Franchise Development for Snip-its. “By introducing Snip-its kid-friendly services to the area, the brand will change the haircut dynamic from traumatic to fun-filled for kids, convenient for parents and fulfilling for franchisees.” We look forward to partnering with qualified franchise candidates in the area who are looking to bring this concept to fruition.”
San Jose has proven to be a top expansion market for Snip-its due to its affluent member demographic, number of children in need of services, and the demand to bring more than one location to the area. This development plan comes on the heels of the brand announcing first-in-class incentive programs for prospective franchisees looking to become multi-unit owners. Investments range from $115,850 to $206,800 and includes a single-unit franchise fee of $25,000, whereas area developer agreements are offered a reduced franchise fee.
Charging forward full throttle, Snip-its is targeting qualified franchisees that can provide a sound financial aspect to the business, strong marketing acumen, and five years of management experience. As part of the brand’s strategic market research analysis, prospective regions must include an average of 20,000 children under the age of nine and family incomes that range from $75,000-100,000 or higher.
Snip-its was founded in 1995 by Joanna Meiseles, a busy mother who sought a hair salon that catered to her young children. Twenty years later, the brand continues to be synonymous with the founder’s mission, offering quality children’s hair care and an environment that is welcoming, wholesome, and entertaining. Snip-its is defined by the branded characters, games, stories, and a Magic Box that dispenses a prize at the end of the service.
