Phenix Salon Suites Ignites International Growth Across the Pond

Leading Salon Suite Brand Announces Opening of First European Location in The United Kingdom

October 14, 2021 // // MANCHESTER, England - Phenix Salon Suites, the nation’s leading salon suite brand turned international trailblazer, revealed today its strategic global expansion plan, starting with its first British location in Manchester, which opened in early October.

Leading the charge for Phenix Salon Suites’ international growth is esteemed development group, Phenix LTD-UK, who signed an agreement to open 75 Phenix Salon Suites locations throughout the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland. Assisting the group with development and overseeing the milestone opening in Manchester is world-renowned hairdressing expert and Phenix’s European Operations Director John Gillespie.

“It’s such an exciting time to be a part of Phenix Salon Suites and we’re extremely buzzed about the opening of our first European salon location,” said Gillespie. “Having been in the salon industry for more than 20 years, I’m familiar with the operations style that is crucial to the success of not only the franchisee, but also the lifestyle professionals. Phenix has definitely mastered the art of seamless operations which has been clear as we’ve established the Manchester location. Our UK team has a ton of developments in the pipeline and we’re eager to continue expanding across England.”

Phenix Salon Suites is experiencing a monumental year. The brand opened its 300th salon location and announced a multi-unit partnership between LL COOL J and long-time Phenix Franchisee, Kevin Davis. Global expansion was the logical next step for the brand as it sets out to bring its award-winning concept to new markets for lifestyle professionals to flourish with the help of experienced entrepreneurs.

“Phenix has had an eye on expansion overseas for a while now and we’re so excited to finally announce our entrance into international markets,” said Brian Kelley, President & COO of Phenix Salon Suites. “We have a strong team behind our global growth with industry expert John Gillespie being a key player to streamline salon operations and Lesley Hawks leading the charge on development. This Manchester salon opening is just the beginning of our international expansion and we’re eager to see the UK development group pioneer our growth internationally. The United Kingdom is a stepping stone to the rest of Europe as the brand explores opportunities in Sweden, Spain, Germany, Switzerland and France.”

Phenix Salon Suites push for international growth is complimented by founder Gina Rivera’s international expansion of Colours By Gina, her product line which has grown in popularity throughout Europe and South America in recent years. Designed by Rivera, Colours By Gina is a specially formulated, curated hair color line that allows for limitless intermixing and multi-functional results for hairstylists.

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, set their own hours, and operate their businesses as sole proprietors.

In the United States, Phenix Salon Suites has its sights set on expanding 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 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.
