Sola Salon Studios Hits Major Milestone And Opens Its 400th Location
June 18, 2018 // Franchising.com // DENVER, CO - When Sola Salon Studios opened its first location in Denver, CO in 2004, the plan was to give beauty professionals the tools they’d needed to design a career and business they’d love: high-end, move-in-ready studios where they could experience the freedom and benefits of salon ownership without the risk and high overhead costs. This concept has proven to be a huge success and now Sola is thrilled to announce they hit the 400th location milestone with the opening of their new location in Ocala, Florida.
From the get-go, Sola took the guesswork out of launching a salon business, providing a comprehensive start-up manual and support programs that simplified the entrepreneurial process - answering questions about everything from registering an LLC to setting up your very own Sola webpage. Other Sola-only benefits include live and digital education programs, business and marketing support and access to SolaGenius – a cutting-edge app to help Sola owners supercharge their salon business.
Sola’s rapid growth is the result of a strong spirit of entrepreneurship and independence in the professional beauty industry, celebrated by those seeking more freedom and control of their environments, schedules and artistic choices. Five years ago the company had 100 locations, and by opening 50 to 60 locations annually in North America, they are celebrating location number 400 now.
When it comes to international expansion opportunities, Sola has opened its first location in Canada with two more underway, and recently executed an agreement to expand into Brazil.
“The way that we view our model is very rewarding. We are entrepreneurs supporting entrepreneurs,” commented CEO. Randall Clark. “With 10,000 beauty professionals owning and operating their own salons at Sola, we are inspired by the successes and milestones of each and every sole proprietor. We look forward to opening our 500th location and continuing to support our growing community throughout the United States and worldwide.”
