Our Story Began In 1964
The foundation of success that Lemon Tree stands on today was not built overnight. Our story began in 1964, nearly 56 years ago. A father-son salon business, Style Rite was opened by Anthony and Robert Shaw. As style and salon trends evolved, so did the business. Many name changes and business model systems later, the original Style Rite became Lemon Tree in 2009. Now managed by Jonathan Shaw, third generation in the Shaw Family, Lemon Tree has fully embraced its lengthy history. Jonathan has incorporated all the lessons and success of his father and grandfather before him.
This has allowed him to develop a haircut franchise that is successful and scalable, bringing Franchise Owners a simple system of business ownership. Shaw has stayed true to his father and grandfather's model of offering professional quality salon services at affordable prices. Customers are impressed by the wide range of services and the reservation free scheduling system. A family style salon, Lemon Tree has been adapted to serve both customers and Franchise Owners.
