Real Estate Entrepreneur to Introduce Premier Salon Suite Concept in Milwaukee

November 29, 2021 // // MILWAUKEE, Wisc. - Phenix Salon Suites, the leading salon suite franchise turned international trailblazer, announced it has signed an agreement with a seasoned restaurateur to develop the brand’s fifth Wisconsin location.

Nick Stauff is a former restaurant franchisee excited to get back in the ownership saddle. With previous experience in finance and real estate, he is exactly the experienced, multi-brand entrepreneur that Phenix Salon Suites is looking to partner with.

“When I saw my wife wanting more for her career as a stylist, we instantly thought of salon suite concepts. I then ran into an old friend from my restaurant days and learned about the flexibility Phenix offers its entrepreneurs. I knew it was the spot for me to continue to grow my business portfolio,” said Stauff. “With my previous finance experience, I appreciated how Phenix makes this an affordable investment, not just for myself as an owner, but for lifestyle professionals to continue to practice their craft. I’m looking forward to bringing the salon suite concept to the Milwaukee metro area and providing opportunities for local lifestyle professionals to thrive.”

Phenix Salon Suites is experiencing a monumental year. The brand opened its 300th salon location and recently announced its strategic global expansion plan, starting with its first UK location in Manchester, which opened in early October. Additionally, long-time franchisee Kevin Davis has forged a multi-unit development partnership with LL COOL J.

“Nick’s expertise as an entrepreneur showcases his initiative to develop with Phenix Salon Suites and help the concept thrive in new markets,” said Brian Kelley, president & COO of Phenix Salon Suites. “With Nick’s experience in various working environments, we’re confident that his trained eye will strengthen the Phenix brand in addition to his own location. I believe his desire to get rid of the typical nine to five lifestyle resonates with many. Given our existing presence in Wisconsin, we’re looking forward to seeing the Phenix brand expand into new areas.”

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.
