EXPERIENCE AND LEADERSHIP
Salons By JC has been in business for nearly 12 years. We began in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area in 1998. One of the most competitive salon markets in the entire country. After our first location filled up we quickly took our concept to Arlington, Euless, and San Antonio. Now with 7 locations, over 50,000 square foot of salon space and over 250 independent operators Salons By JC has become the leader in the Salon Suite industry.
UNFAMILIAR WITH THE SALON INDUSTRY?
Knowledge and understanding of the salon industry is not needed. We are more in the real estate development and property management business. It just so happens that we lease to beauty professionals.
EXACTLY WHAT IS A SALON SUITE?
A Salon Suite is much like an office building. In a space ranging in size from 6000 Sq.Ft. to 10000 Sq.Ft. The interior is finished out with 30-60 rooms of various sizes furnished them to lease to professionals in the beauty industry. Hair Stylists, Manicurists, Massage Therapists, and Estheticians.
WHO LEASES THE ROOM IN A SALON SUITE?
Leases are established with professionals in the beauty industry. These are operators who have been in the beauty industry for at least a few years and already have an established clientele. Most beauty operators work in a salon that takes a percentage of every dollar they bring in. Typically it's a 50/50 split. In a salon suite they have fixed costs and don't share their profits with anyone, making it possible for them to increase their take home pay substantially.
Do you have a lot of turnover in tenants?
No! About the only reason you will lose a tenant is if they move from the area or get out of the profession altogether. Since these people are actually in business for themselves, you will have a few that aren't good business managers, and they leave because their business failed. However, in many cases when someone leaves we actually have a waiting list and so the vacant suite gets filled immediately. Typically we operate at an occupancy rate of 95% or higher.
SO HOW DOES THIS DIFFER FROM A TYPICAL BEAUTY SALON?
None of these people work for you. You are simply providing them with an attractive, upscale location for them to conduct business. All you have to do is lease the furnished suite, and maintain the common area.
IS THIS DIFFICULT TO OPERATE?
ABSOLUTELY NOT! This business has none of the complications that would be associated with operating a typical beauty salon.
WHAT ABOUT TRAINING?
One week of training will be provided at one of our existing locations. Ongoing, we will always be available to provide any additional training as needed.
