The demand for smooth-looking hair and affordable luxury is growing rapidly in the United States. The hair salon business is now a $40 billion per year industry, and the blow-drying niche is growing faster than other traditional segments without any signs of slowing down.
In order to meet this rapidly expanding demand, Australian entrepreneur Nathan Cuneen is launching his highly successful salon brand Blow Dry Bar in the United States. Nathan launched his blow dry bar business model in 2008, which has since expanded to multiple locations across Australia.
Named Cherry Blow Dry Bar in the U.S., the franchise now is expanding to the greater Atlanta area. Jerry Cohn and David Tannen, two area developers and franchise veterans with more than 25 years of experience, are in charge of developing the brand throughout the region. They will be overseeing the development for over 30 locations over the next two years. Cohn and Tannen have substantial experience in developing service franchise brands.
“Having been involved in service franchising for many years, Cherry Blow Dry Bar’s upscale franchise model, in addition to its recruiting, training, and on-going support systems, made us want to be a part of this exciting new trend in the hair care industry,” said David. “We saw Cherry Blow Dry Bar as an outstanding opportunity for individual franchise owners and multi-unit operators to get in on the ground floor of this rapidly expanding business,” added Jerry.
The Cherry Blow Dry Bar franchise (cherryblowdrybar.com) is a unique concept that offers many features to local business owners and potential franchisees, including: (1) no hair care experience necessary; (2) owner - investor franchise model (no need to be on-site full-time); (3) site selection and build-out assistance provided; (4) conducts ongoing training and skill enhancement for staff; (5) provides marketing assistance and public relations support; and (6) implements strong national marketing campaigns to build brand recognition and awareness throughout the U.S.
