Frequently Asked Questions
1. What is the investment range?
Our investment range depends on your areas of development and how large of a salon you want to build.
2. What is the breakdown of the investment?
There are many variables to this question. We will send you a detailed investment summary based on your criteria. Please contact us for more information.
3. What is the franchising process?
The first step is to get to know you, and what your goals are. We will be able to assess your expectations and desires through friendly communication. We will ask that you sign a confidentiality agreement, and we will be able to take you on a tour of our flagship salon.
The second step is for you to review our legal disclosure and franchise agreement. We recommend that take to your own advisors for their own opinion.
The third step is for you to complete the due diligence process. We ask that you interview our current franchisees and ask us any questions that you may have before you decide to invest in your own Sunsera Salon.
4. Do you expect your franchisees to have their styling license or be a RMT?
No, but we do expect our franchisees to have experience in managing a fast paced and growing salon. We need franchisees that understand the importance of amazing customer service. Our franchisees should be a hands-on type of manager, who enjoys interacting with clients and their staff.
5. What kind of training can I expect?
We offer on-going extensive training, not only in management, but in products as well. We have a network of suppliers that will train our franchisees and their staff in all of the Sunsera Salon product lines.
We definitely believe in life-long learning. We encourage each franchisee to use our contacts to promote their own salons.
6. Can I have my own exclusive territory?
Absolutely! We even offer a legal option in our franchise agreement called the “right of first refusal”. We want our franchisees to be extremely successful, and if you want more than one location in your territory, we will assist you with that.
We totally encourage go-getters!
7. What are the initial franchise fees, royalties and franchise term?
We follow the industry standard of 6% royalties, and a seven-year franchise term. Most commercial lease agreements are for ten years, so our terms are negotiable. Our franchise fee ranges from $35,000 to $50,000, depending on the territory.
8. Are you looking for area developers?
If you are interested in being an area developer, that possibility may be available, depending on which area of the country you are interested in.
