Phenix Salon Suites Grows Texas Footprint with Latest Multi-Unit Signed Agreement

Husband-and-Wife Duo Ink Deal to Develop Two New Locations in Austin Region

January 04, 2024 // // AUSTIN, Texas - Phenix Salon Suites, the nation’s #1 salon suite franchise turned international trailblazer, is continuing its expansion into 2024 with a recent deal to grow the concept’s presence in Austin. The new Phenix Salon Suites facilities will meet the elevated demand from salon professionals across the bustling city.

Inyene and Ini Umoren, the husband-and-wife duo leading these expansion efforts, come from extensive professional backgrounds within the medical field, further supporting their ability to provide exceptional service throughout the greater Austin area. This agreement will bolster the concept’s footprint in Austin, adding two new units to the city’s existing roster and further highlighting the attraction of this concept to local entrepreneurs.

“We’re thrilled to join Phenix Salon Suites and to be able to expand our business portfolio with such a proven concept,” said Inyene. “Phenix offers entrepreneurs a unique experience with their business model and allows us to deeply engage with them. We can’t wait to open our locations in Austin and provide lifestyle professionals with a larger, more well-equipped option to operate their businesses from.”

Phenix Salon Suites is pushing forward on a positive growth trajectory, both domestically and abroad. Solidifying its stellar reputation with Entrepreneur magazine’s 44th annual Franchise 500 list, Phenix Salon Suites was named as the #1 salon suite franchise in its category and most recently landed on the 2023 Franchise Times Top 400 list, rising 54 spots from last year.

“It’s amazing to see the continued demand for Phenix Salon Suites in the Austin region, which is why we’re ecstatic that Ini and Inyene have joined our thriving network of franchisees,” said Gina Rivera, founder of Phenix Salon Suites. “We look forward to the development of their new locations, further creating an environment for local lifestyle professionals to set themselves up for a successful future. Our existing Austin locations have performed extremely well in this region and we anticipate the same success for the pair.”

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, one cabinet, a hair dryer, and a shampoo bowl. 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.
