You may ask yourself,"Why Lemon Tree Hair Salons?" or, "Why should I invest in this haircut franchise opportunity?". Well, the answer isn't as simple as saying that we're the best, even if we are. We know there are a lot of franchise opportunities out there in the hair care industry, but we offer competitive advantages to our potential franchise owners. Take a look at what we can offer you and what your career can look like under our successful business model:
Lemon Tree Hair Salons Offers a Low-Cost Investment - Operating a business is expensive and that is often what keeps many hopeful entrepreneurs from achieving their dreams. We believe that every talented, hard-working individual has the right to own a business, so we keep our investment costs incredibly low. A range of $164,694- $234,939* covers everything needed to get started.
Incredible Training & Support - All Lemon Tree Hair Salons Franchise Owners are properly trained in the salon industry and business operations to ensure their success. Whether it's helping line up your best real estate options, finding the right general contractor, setting up your supply chain, building brand awareness or being available to answer any of your questions, our executive team is in your corner throughout every phase of development.
Growth Potential - Thanks to simple operations and low entry costs, Lemon Tree Hair Salons is an incredibly scalable business model. Those interested in multi-location operations will be pleased with what our hair salon franchise has to offer. You'll also have the opportunity to substantially grow your business and increase earnings at a faster rate.
Semi-Absentee Option - Lemon Tree Hair Salons is a unique salon and franchise opportunity that allows business owners or those too busy with other pursuits to expand their income sources with a semi-absentee ownership model. Once your salon franchise is up and running and you have a general manager in place, you'll only need to spend 15-20 hours a week focused on Lemon Tree Hair Salons. That leaves plenty of time for you to pursue other interests.
With the opportunity for high potential returns, Lemon Tree Hair Salons has great economics that franchise owners can greatly benefit from. The historically consistent beauty industry has experienced a 7% growth in salon product sales, 9-15% growth among family-focused salons, and 3% industry-wide growth overall. As a result, we see incredible revenue come in here at Lemon Tree Hair Salons. On average, the top 50% of Hair Salon Franchise Owners make $398,432* in annual sales with the top 10% of locations reaching $556,305* in annual sales. Within this massive industry, hair salons and retail hair products make up the largest portion, bringing in $62 billion* annually in the United States alone. With these numbers, it's hard not to see how investing in a franchise opportunity like Lemon Tree Hair Salons can be a worthwhile investment and career move.

If you are ready to join our team and experience some of our success for yourself, the process is simple. If you qualify, you will move onto the education process, which consists of the following steps:
In this first interview we'll ask about your business plans and what you see in your future with Lemon Tree Hair Salons.
This online informational session lasts about 30 minutes and we'll introduce you to details of the franchise process, Lemon Tree Hair Salons branding, our support program, and training requirements.
After the webinar, we will share the financial details of our Franchise Disclosure Document with you and invite you to take a closer look at the inner workings of our system.
If you have any remaining questions at this point about the details of the franchise agreement, this step allows you to speak directly with our executive team to make sure you understand all the fine print.
This is your opportunity to speak directly with our current Franchise Owners about their experience running a Lemon Tree Hair Salons hair salon franchise. They'll also give us their feedback on whether or not they feel you'll make a valuable team member.
You'll be invited out to our headquarters in New York City where you will meet the support team, corporate members, learn about Paul Mitchell products and visit local salons for an immersive experience.
The last part of Discovery Day ends with an interview between you and the CEO. This final interview is a great way for you to learn a bit more about the history of Lemon Tree Hair Salons and ask any remaining questions.
As soon as the CEO gives his nod of approval, congratulations! Once you sign the contract agreement, we'll set to work preparing for your Grand Opening. From there, you can expect your salon to open for business within a few short months
You can start a haircut business and become part of the salon industry in two different ways. One way is to start your own business from scratch. You'll create your own unique salon concept, figure out what salon equipment you need, apply for and acquire all necessary permits and licenses, find enough funding, create a business plan, marketing materials, and more. There is a never-ending list of to-dos when you start your own business, which can take a long time and cost a lot of money.
The second way to start a haircut business of your own, and in our opinion, the better way, is by franchising! At Lemon Tree, we offer one of the best haircut franchise opportunities on the market because of our proven business model. When you choose to franchise with us, our executive team will help you through every development phase, setting you up for success. We also have low investment costs and a scalable business model, meaning you have more opportunities to increase your earnings. If you ask us, franchising is much more appealing than starting a brand-new business!
The salon industry is an excellent place to invest your time and money. The global beauty industry (including anti-aging, skincare, hair services, nail services, and massage) brings in over $1 trillion annually. And with new beauty technologies constantly being developed, the industry continues to grow with consumer demand for more products and services. The beauty industry has a large market consisting of all genders and people of all ages — anywhere from 2 to 70 years old.
Starting a haircut business that is a full-service salon will allow you to capitalize on the most that this industry has to offer. You can provide services from children's haircuts, women's hair care, men's hair care, and more. People always want to look and feel their best, which helps make the salon industry recession-resistant. You can feel secure in your employment even if times are tough. Starting a salon with Lemon Tree is an excellent opportunity and a solid investment. Contact us today to learn more about this opportunity!
