Phenix Salon Suites Sweeps into Pennsylvania and New Jersey Expanding its East Coast Footprint

Local Entrepreneurs to Bring Four Salons to Philadelphia and South Jersey

February 18, 2021 // // PHILADEDLPHIA - Phenix Salon Suites, the leading salon suite franchise, announced it has signed agreements with two entrepreneurial teams to continue the brand’s strategic expansion along the East Coast.

The first agreement for a location in the Philadelphia suburbs has been signed with the local business team of TKSS LLC. Under the management of Shawn Quinn Jr, Timothy Quinn, Shannon Kirner and Kelly Strunk, the individualized suite complex for salon and lifestyle professionals is expected to open in December of 2021.

“Our team was looking for an opportunity where all of our collective experiences in the construction and style sectors could come into play. After researching salon suite businesses, we felt that Phenix’s business model, buildout plan and emphasis on self-care businesses was a great match for our team,” said Shawn Quinn Jr, a TKSS partner and construction manager. “Since coming on board with the Phenix team we’ve felt excited to be aligned on our goals for our upcoming location in the Philly suburbs. We look forward to moving ahead with our location and are grateful to have joined the Phenix family.”

Along with the TKSS team are Cori and John Basile, who also signed a 3-unit Phenix development agreement in late 2020. The Basile’s are looking to establish locations in South New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Cori, a corporate retail merchant with a focus in beauty, has family roots in the salon industry as her mother worked as a nail technician and father owned a barbershop in Atlantic City. After visiting her hair stylist who operates out of a Phenix Salon Suites location, she fell in love with the business concept and decided to become a part of the brand family.

“We’re excited to have TKSS team and the Basile’s join the Phenix Salon Suites family to help establish our brand footprint in New Jersey and Pennsylvania,” said Brian Kelley, President of Phenix Salon Suites. “The suite-based model has proven to be extremely resilient and sustainable, providing franchisees with a solid business investment. I’m confident that these entrepreneurs’ strong understanding of business and background in the salon industry will pair well with our model. We look forward to helping them represent the Phenix Salon Suites brand on the East Coast.”

Phenix Salon Suites was one of the first salon suite concepts to offer luxurious, spacious suites for independent salon and lifestyle professionals to rent on a month-to-month basis and become their own boss. The suites are equipped with upscale amenities including a styling chair, shampoo chair, two cabinets, a hair dryer and a shampoo bowl that hooks directly onto the sink. The salon essentials are designed to meet each professional’s basic needs while providing them the opportunity to customize their suites.

While Phenix Salon Suites has its sights set on expanding both nationally and internationally with experienced multi-unit franchise operators in Houston, Chicago, Columbus, Detroit, Boston, Upstate New York and New York City, Phenix also has room to grow in Washington, Oregon, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Northern California.

While no salon experience is necessary, the most successful franchisees have a working knowledge of commercial real estate, general business experience and are well-capitalized with the ability to invest $300,000 or more. Financing is available through our lending partners.
