January 27, 2022 // Franchising.com // DENVER - Sola Salons announced today its 600th location worldwide - marking the brand's 17th location in Wisconsin. In addition to expanding the Sola franchise footprint, the brand is celebrating a year of achievements including 53 new locations, 72 signed franchise agreements, and reaching a milestone of 18,000 independent beauty professionals in 2021 throughout the U.S.
"It's been exciting to watch Sola grow at such a rapid pace throughout 2021. Reaching 600 locations nationwide is a landmark milestone for the company," said Christina Russell, CEO at Sola Salons. "Sola's accelerated growth is the result of an innovative business model combined with a strong spirit of entrepreneurship and independence in the professional beauty industry. We continue to be motivated by the successes of our franchisees and are eager to continue this momentum in 2022."
The brand's growth throughout North America in 2021 culminated with its 600th salon located in Janesville, Wisconsin. Behind the milestone opening is first-time franchisee owner Alicia Modjeska, a former healthcare executive and U.S. Veteran. Modjeska was so impressed with the Sola business model that she came out of retirement to open her first location. Modjeska, who signed an agreement to open three Sola locations, is already searching for real estate to open her second studio.
"I'm thrilled to join the Sola community while spearheading the launch of a new territory for the brand, which will give job opportunities to beauty professionals in Janesville and surrounding markets," said Modjeska, Janesville franchise owner. "With an extensive background in corporate America, this journey with Sola is giving me the opportunity to have freedom and flexibility as a business owner while giving back to my community, and ultimately providing a successful growing business that I can one day pass down to my daughters."
Sola Salons was recently recognized with numerous industry awards, including a placement on the Franchise Business Review 2021 Most Profitable Franchise list, where Sola was one of 50 franchise companies to be recognized for strong financial performance and high franchisee satisfaction.
