Phenix Salon Suites Finalizes Plans for 7th North Carolina Location

Nation’s Premier Salon Suite Welcomes Seasoned Executive as Key Player in Raleigh’s Expansion

July 08, 2021 // // RALEIGH, N.C. - Phenix Salon Suites, the leading suite rental franchise, announced today that it has signed 25+ franchise leases and opened more than 15 locations in the first half of 2021.

Among these monumental signings is Greg Rusnak, a future multi-unit operator with Phenix Salon Suites, who solidified plans to open his first location in the heart of Raleigh. Set to open at the end of 2021, Rusnak’s salon location will be located in the happening Celebration Plaza and will house 35 suites - including doubles and premiums - for lifestyle professionals in the health, wellness and beauty industries.

“Upon searching for my next business venture, I came across Phenix Salon Suites and instantly knew the model was perfect to kickstart my entrepreneurial journey,” said Rusnak. “It catered to all of my strengths as the former regional vice president for a major car rental company and I know operationally, the suite model is ideal for growing my footprint as a business owner. Phenix Salon Suites has already seen great success in North Carolina and I’m eager to continue upholding their reputation as a valuable salon suite brand for lifestyle professionals to reach their highest potential as owners themselves. I’m looking forward to growing with the brand and opening my first location.”

Following the opening of Raleigh salon location, Rusnak has plans to open an additional Phenix Salon Suites in the future. Assisting him with operations will be his wife Dawn and daughter Danielle.

“Greg is a great addition to our Phenix family,” said Brian Kelley, president of Phenix Salon Suites. “His strong business acumen greatly aligns with our brand values and I’m confident his new salon location will strengthen our existing footprint in the state. This Raleigh salon location will help create an abundance of job opportunities for salon and lifestyle professionals alike, allowing them to expand their businesses. Our team is looking forward to watching Greg open his first Phenix location as we envision a bright future for him as an operator in our system.”

Phenix Salon Suites offers luxury, 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 onto the sink. The salon essentials are designed to meet each professional’s basic needs while providing them the opportunity to customize their suites. The brand also launched a full-scale rollout of its new prototype earlier in 2021, featuring a new, sleek, modernized interior design.
