World’s Fastest-Growing Salon Suite Brand Ranks on Entrepreneur Magazine’s 44th Franchise 500® List, Reports Stellar Development Year

January 12, 2023 // // ENCINITAS, Calif. – Phenix Salon Suites announced today its ranking on Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500® list as the #1 franchise in its respective salon suites category. Phenix moved up 17 places from last year, marking the brand’s 10th consecutive year being named on the highly competitive list.

Phenix Salon Suites has been rapidly growing for over a decade. The brand has continued to garner attention from seasoned entrepreneurs and multi-brand operators alike, sparking record-breaking growth year after year. This past year was no different as Phenix Salon Suites signed more than 70 franchise agreements, creating a strong pipeline for 2023 with 60-plus locations currently under construction.

“The salon suites industry has always been competitive, but it has been so rewarding to see Phenix remain a leader within the space,” said Gina Rivera, founder of Phenix Salon Suites. “Landing on Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500® list for 10 straight years is a milestone by itself but ranking #1 in our category this year is a remarkable achievement. All of the growth we’ve driven this year is a testament to our scalable business model, dynamic leadership team and a commitment to our franchisee’s success.”

Known for its recession-resistant concept and semi-absentee ownership model, Phenix Salon Suites has drawn in many distinguished franchisees, one of whom is on track to surpass 50 open locations. Kevin Davis is Phenix’s largest franchisee with locations stretching across the east coast and California. Standing at 48 open locations and another 20-plus in development, Davis has been with the brand since it started franchising in 2012. In addition to franchisee milestones, Phenix continued to strengthen its own footprint worldwide, ramping up international growth in recent years with commitments in the UK and Sweden and discussions underway in countries such as Spain, Japan, Canada, and Australia to name a few.

“Phenix Salon Suites is in an especially strong position starting off 2023,” said Brian Kelley, President & CEO of Phenix Salon Suites. “Our brand has continued to report record-breaking development numbers year after year. Looking at our current pipeline, our aggressive growth is on track to continue this year with a record number of new openings domestically and new interest worldwide.”

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 hairdryer 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.

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.
