It may take you up to a year to open your MY SALON Suite business from the time you execute your franchise agreement. However, there is variability in the general timeframe in which it takes to open a MY SALON Suite location due to local market logistics, construction timetables, and legal considerations, etc.
MY SALON Suite provides guidance for construction and development of your salon suite. We are with you every step of the way.


You’ll want to get the word out before starting a salon suite business, of course! When you join a franchise, you benefit from the brand name and the company’s established marketing strategy.
There is an ongoing marketing fee (currently $200 per month) for MY SALON Suite franchisees. This helps build and support a successful brand, and it helps promote all franchise locations.

Training and Recruitment

We help you find it, we help you build it, we help you fill it, and, most importantly, we help you keep it full!

New Ownership Training
