Do I need to have experience in the salon business to start a salon?
Absolutely not. In fact, it is rare that a franchisee has any hair care experience at all. We would much prefer your business management experience and people skills.
How do I know if I am right for a Regis Franchise concept?
Ask yourself the following questions:
- Do I enjoy working with people?
- Do I have the capital it takes to become a Regis salon franchisee?
- Am I financially stable?
- Am I success driven?
- Am I willing to follow a proven business system?
Do I get help with store design and construction?
The Regis construction division has developed a total design and salon décor package proven to work. We will work with you to ensure your salon is nothing short of perfect before opening.
Can you help me get started?
We will not only help get you started in your new career, we will partner with you for the long run. Training is #1 with Regis Corporation. You are taught customer service, salon employee relations, sales tracking and just about every aspect of the salon business that can help with your success. And training doesn't stop when you open your doors. We'll keep you current on operations and business procedures as long as you operate your salon franchise.
Is there a strict standard I am required to follow in operating a Regis franchise?
Yes. We know what works. We've proven it works. As the leader in the haircare industry, we will pass this business formula on to you.
What about additional advertising help?
Award-winning advertising - including print ads, direct mail, radio and TV - is available for certain brands. You’ll also have an opportunity to take part in merchandising events that are designed to attract attention to your salon and draw new business. Depending on the brand, franchisees are required to contribute to an exclusive advertising fund - managed by a group of franchisees and executives - that supports national and local market advertising and salon promotions.
Do I have to leave my current job?
No. In fact, we have built flexibility into our training so you don't have to make too many changes in your life during the first years of salon salon franchise investment. A salon manager, trained and certified by Regis, runs the day-to-day operation of your franchise. You handle the supervision.
How does my staff get trained?
Technical consultants, artistic directors and vendor experts will frequently visit your salon to present the latest hair techniques and conduct in-salon workshops. In addition, you will receive an extensive library of educational DVDs. To help improve management skills and promote a positive salon environment, we hold ongoing salon training programs for store managers.
Can Regis "guarantee" my success as a franchisee?
No. But we've been providing quality service to customers for over 88 years. You’ll find Regis franchise concepts to be successful, proven investment opportunities with huge growth potential.
Will I get help in advertising my grand opening?
Our marketing staff is made up of experts who know how to attract customers. They have designed a comprehensive salon grand opening package that works. In addition, you can be assured of exciting promotional marketing and in-store signage to acquire new customers and to build customer loyalty for your hair salon business.
Where's the best place to locate my hair salon?
Although you have the final say, we will assist you in finding a business location. We work with the top names in real estate so you can be assured of identifying quality sites in the market you choose for your salon business.
How can I finance my hair salon?
Regis can refer business financing companies to qualified prospects.
