Business Description

This popular Salon & Spa opened for business in December of 2010. It's located on the North side of Chicago. It's an upscale full service beauty salon & spa that primarily focuses on pampering, nails and hair care for the entire family. They also offer ear piercing, birthday parties and spa day parties, & other services such as blow-out, styles, facial waxing, straightening, deep conditioning treatments, and chlorine removal treatments.

This business has a website. On their website you'll find different spa & party packages available. The current owner doesn't work in the salon much at all. She has a full-time day job and used to work weekends at the salon. Once she became pregnant last year, she hired a receptionist to take her place on the weekends at the salon. The owner has a manager operating the salon on a daily basis and she says the manager would be willing to stay, if you want. The owner of the salon does not cut hair, so you don't have to worry about her clients going somewhere else after the sale. This is a common issue when the owner also cuts hair. At this salon, it won't be an issue because she's not really involved anymore, plus she doesn’t cut hair anyway.

Growth & Expansion:
Of course, when you have an absentee owner, there are areas of opportunity to grow the business. In addition to a new owner being there to oversee things, it would help to do more advertising. They have relied on word of mouth and about a half dozen press releases to sustain the business, as well as the fact that they are in a great location with a lot of foot traffic. You will see from their financial statements that they only spend about $1,000 per year or 1.5% of gross sales on advertising. Even without much advertising, the sales and cash flow are very consistent and the salon has a very good reputation in the community. The business is profitable even with an absentee owner, so there's no reason why more advertising couldn't increase sales. Any increase in sales would significantly help the bottom line simply because the current sales levels already support & pay the salon expenses. The salon has such a good reputation in the community, they have 4.5 stars out of 5 on Facebook and nearly 1100 likes. That's not bad at all when you consider the owner works somewhere else and they don't do much advertising. This is a good opportunity whether you are a licensed beautician looking for your own salon or an investor.
Seller will consider a small amount

It’s located in a high foot-traffic area and has very consistent sales.
