HOUSTON– MY SALON Suite, the nation’s leading upscale salon suite franchise, announced today plans to expand its presence across Houston. Aaron Gillaspie, the local multi-unit operator leading the expansion, plans to open two new locations in The Woodlands and Pasadena and expand the current West University location. All developments are set to occur in Q1 and Q2 2018.
Conveniently located in the Braes Heights shopping center, 3901 Bellaire Blvd, the West University location is expanding to approximately 14,000 square feet – a 8,000 square foot increase from the previous design – and will feature 68 individual salon suites. With the expansion, 65 percent of all suites are already pre-leased. Ceramic floors, 40% larger suites and sound proof insulation are just a few of the luxury upgrades expected with this expansion. Construction of the additional space is set to be complete in February.
Also to open in February, The Woodlands location will be situated in the Portofino Shopping Center at 19075 I-45 S. The venue will span approximately 7,000 square feet, feature 35 suites, and is first in the nation to be unveil the new completed luxury line of MY SALON Suite.
By May 2018, the first Pasadena MY SALON Suite location will open at the Market on Crenshaw at 4541 East Sam Houston Pkwy. The site’s construction will span approximately 6,000 square feet and feature 29 suites. This location is expected to open in spring 2018.
Guests of the Houston area MY SALON Suite centers are treated to the latest in hair, nails and related salon services in an upscale, private environment. As a franchise partner with MY SALON Suite, the Houston team will recruit and lease suites to salon professionals, whom MY SALON Suite refers to as its members. Members are provided with luxurious, top-of-the line furniture and equipment as well as many infrastructure services, including proactive suite complex maintenance and support for business development.
“With the waitlist we have experienced, there is an obvious demand and desire for MY SALON Suite’s services from both consumers and beauty professionals,” said Gillaspie who signed on to open 10 MY SALON Suite or Salon Plaza locations throughout Houston and San Antonio. “I plan to continue growing this franchise throughout the region, which means I will be able to create more opportunities for hair stylists, nail technicians, estheticians and other talented beauty professionals in the Houston and San Antonio markets. I love that MY SALON Suite allows me to continue making individual dreams come true. I’m looking forward to seeing the success and talent the two new locations will bring.”
Gillaspie and his team have a proven track record of success opening and supporting their members. Nationally, his Salon Suites were the highest performing location based on Net Promoter Score. To be in some of the top locations in Houston with ample parking, great co tenants, larger suites and all of the top notch amenities has proven to be exactly what the Houston Salon business owner is looking for. Mix this with the ongoing support, education and top notch culture and it makes for a winning business.
Building on the momentum the brand achieved in 2017, MY SALON Suite launched several new locations within the past year, expanding the brand’s presence in major markets throughout the country. Currently, the brand has more than 50 salon complexes in 17 states across the United States and Canada. A strategic alliance with Ratner Companies, the nation’s largest family-owned collection of salons, is helping drive the expansion of MY SALON Suite throughout the United States and Canada.
“Houston is home to so many beauty salon professionals that are looking for a space to showcase their talents, and the continued growth of MY SALON Suite provides them with resources they need to succeed,” added Gillaspie. “Plus, for our members’ clients, we offer an environment to escape from the stresses of the day in a quiet, private setting where they are treated to an upscale salon experience like no other.”
