Business Overview:

2019 Revenue was almost $500,000!

This blow dry bar business is one the top salon franchises available in the country, and it is a brand that is growing exponentially with locations all across the country and in Canada. The brand coined the term “blow dry bar,” which is a salon concept that offers no cuts or color but provides gorgeous blow outs, custom styling, updos, bridal styling, makeup services and even hair extensions. The stylists are paid hourly vs. a commission-based system, and at a successful location, licensed stylists can make up to $28-30+ an hour. With some owner involvement, there is no need for full-time management, but the business does benefit and grow with a qualified front desk receptionist/supervisor. Any stylists who are promoted to supervisory positions can continue to generate revenue. Total revenue in 2021 was $378,540, and any new owner will have a wonderfully solid foundation for growing this already successful location. The seller’s discretionary earnings (SDE) for this location was $68,054 in 2021.
At a $95,000 price tag, any buyer could get this stunning business in its perfect location for approximately ¼ of what it costs to open a brand-new franchise of this blow dry bar and less than a 1.5X multiple of SDE. The only reason the seller is listing it at this price is because she travels to and from Arizona to operate the business. She’s ready to be in one place! The business is situated in a busy, high-end strip in a premium San Diego area location, and any potential buyer could invest in marketing and hiring to see the annual sales grow significantly depending on how many stylists and makeup artists are hired and also by including additional services like hair extensions. A salon this size in the franchise can easily generate a higher annual sales number. The salon was built out in 2015, and all furniture, fixtures and equipment are in excellent condition, and the custom millwork alone is worth well over $55,000.
As stated above, this location was built out in a busy and popular area in Southern California. The franchise fee alone to start this franchise ranges from $35,000-40,000, and with buildout costs and investment in high-end millwork plus chairs, fixtures and inventory, startup costs can be close to $350,000. The franchisor is extremely supportive and innovative with their franchisees, and they are perpetually working with local franchise partners to grow their locations and the brand. With a large network of corporate support and marketing, any new franchise partner would have the tools and knowledge to grow this business to profitability in short order.
This location has been thriving and growing since another franchise partner took ownership in early 2021. There is a large membership base that more than pays for the business’s overhead, and the only reason the owner is selling is simply the logistics of traveling back and forth from Arizona.
Any potential buyer could invest in marketing (Google Ads, Facebook, Instagram, etc.), add a variety of products for retail sale and add new services to see the revenue, traffic and visibility increase.

Potential Sources of Sales and Revenue Growth Include:
• Adding 3-4 stylists, including makeup artists
• Retail product sales
• Growing the hair extension and makeup service portion of the business
• Price increase to $55 from $49 per blow out
• Investing in marketing—Google Ads, Facebook, Instagram, Events
