Fantastic Sams: Reduces cost of investment for new franchisees in Wisconsin

Special franchise pricing presents great option for new business owners to launch a recession-resistant business

EAU CLAIRE — (September 8, 2010) Opening a small business in Wisconsin just got a little easier, thanks to Fantastic Sams franchise discounts for new salon owners throughout the state. For a limited time, new Fantastic Sams franchise owners in Wisconsin will receive 50 percent off the initial franchise fee as well as 50 percent off their initial inventory of Fantastic Sams private-labeled products in addition to training, education and support in launching new salon locations.

The incentives, which greatly reduce the initial cost of investment to open a Fantastic Sams salon, make a good business opportunity even better in the “value” hair care sector which continues to perform well despite the recession. Today there are more than 1,300 Fantastic Sams locations nationwide that provide professional hair care at affordable prices. There are currently more than 40 Fantastic Sams in Wisconsin with potential for many more locations, particularly in the areas around urban centers such as Madison and Milwaukee.

“Affordable hair care never goes out of style, so we want to make it easier for new small business owners to launch and grow a business with Fantastic Sams,” said Will Rauckman, President of Fantastic Sams in Wisconsin. “As we expand throughout Wisconsin, we are offering great pricing, great support and great opportunities for entrepreneurs of all backgrounds and interests.”

For qualified candidates, Fantastic Sams will support the entire salon start-up process. In addition to offering 50 percent off the initial salon license and purchase of Fantastic Sams private-labeled products, weekly royalty fees for new salon owners will also be reduced by 50 percent for the first six months that the salon is in operation. Additional discounts are available for purchasing multiple franchise licenses. To help new franchisees succeed from day one, Fantastic Sams will also send an experienced educator to each salon for one week prior to opening and pay for the new franchisee to attend Fantastic Sams Salon Fundamentals Course. In addition, the new business owner will also receive assistance with site selection, lease negotiations, salon space, initial marketing plans and more.

Beyond financial requirements, Rauckman noted that the perfect candidate for opening a Fantastic Sams salon is someone who has good business skills, is dedicated to customer service and is committed to being involved in the day-to-day operations. He added that hair experience is not a necessity. Most current salon owners are men and women from outside the beauty industry.
