National Children’s Hair Salon Franchise Celebrates 15 Year Milestone, Sets Stage for 2020 at Atlanta Conference
October 29, 2019 // Franchising.com // ATLANTA - Closing out the year with more than 125 units sold or in development, Pigtails & Crewcuts, a national children’s hair salon franchise, recently celebrated 15 years of business at its conference, which takes place every 18 months. During the conference held at The Omni at The Battery, Pigtails’ franchisees networked with fellow business owners and vendors, attend leadership seminars and more.
President and CEO, Wade Brannon, provided the system with impressive growth numbers, including over a 14 percent year to date growth increase. In addition, it was announced that Pigtails & Crewcuts’ locations exceeded expectations on the annual quality assurance visit, in which salons are rated based on a specific set of criteria.
Additionally, the franchise team looked toward 2020 and introduced a set of five core values that will live across every store, franchisee and franchise team member. The core values include: work with integrity and respect; build positive relationships; be fun, enthusiastic and compassionate; deliver consistent quality; and give back to your community.
“We are thrilled to recognize and celebrate 15 years of amazing business at this year’s conference,” said Brannon. “We are continuously impressed by the hard work and dedication of our franchisees across the country and inspired by the impact they have made in their own communities. By implementing these values, we can continue to grow the brand as one cohesive family.”
Pigtails & Crewcuts’ franchisees were presented with several awards to celebrate their success over the last year. A few award winners included:
- 2018 Top Sales Award: Andi Thompson of Pigtails & Crewcuts of Westminster, CO
- 2018 Top Sales Multi-Unit Award: Kendra Keating of Pigtails & Crewcuts of San Diego, CA
- President’s Award: Kay and Evan Carroll of Pigtails & Crewcuts of Charlotte, NC and Ft. Mill, SC
