At CoLaz, I have strived to build a full-service, niche beauty salon franchise that our clients across the UK would come to love and remain loyal to. So, I want to ensure you have all the facts at your disposal before you decide to join us as a CoLaz franchisee partner. An inherent part of what makes the CoLaz franchise successful is the integrity and fit of the people who join us.
A profitable franchise business is a two-way relationship between the franchise owner and franchisee partner. As such, it’s important that the partnership works for all parties, and full disclosure helps to ensure that we are both on the same page.
I’m often asked the same question about the CoLaz franchise opportunity, “Do I need experience in the salon industry?" And the answer is simple: Not at all! You don’t even need previous franchising experience! I am simply looking for business savvy owners who want to build, lead, and grow their own teams and salons!
As with any successful business, a profitable salon merely requires hardworking individuals who can balance the need for a hands-on role with the necessary management skills. You don’t need to have previous expertise in the industry. CoLaz will provide full help and training in all areas of the franchisee business, and as much support as you require for the day-to-day operations which will be organised by yourself.
In return for your investment, you receive:
Please also consider your own aptitudes when making this decision. As well as being responsible for the salon, CoLaz franchisee partners must be capable of organising and managing a small team of therapists as well as reception staff (3–7 individuals). It is worth taking the time to consider your own motivation and skills when contemplating a commitment of this magnitude.
Today, I believe the CoLaz salon franchise model is one of the strongest in the UK within the health and beauty industry. While our salons are anything but average, they do all have several common factors to keep them aligned with the CoLaz brand.
The premises, once selected with the assistance of the franchisor, will need to be suitably designed and internally refurbished in the CoLaz corporate colours. The CoLaz design ideals incorporate sleek, modern aesthetics while promoting a clean, comfortable atmosphere to soothe and relax our clients. My team will provide all the support you need to design and outfit a high-class establishment in keeping with the mission statement.
The salon itself will consist of a reception area that is suitably equipped with seating, a reception desk, and CoLaz branding. Additionally, it is typical to incorporate a separate consulting room with video capabilities to deliver a professional presentation of the available services for potential clients.
In addition, the potential premises require:
The salon will also require a room for electrolysis treatment, and an area for the vibro-plate toning equipment. Some of the above-mentioned facilities may be combined into a single space, depending on the square footage of space available.
Ideally, the premises should have a secondary position with window frontage. A large window is important to display CoLaz signage depicting the strap line, “Advanced Beauty Specialists”. This establishes your place of business. The windows will be redecorated periodically, with images of the beauty treatments available to entice passing foot fall traffic.
As well as organising the chosen premises, the CoLaz franchisee partner will also need telephone, broadband connections, and other associated utilities. These will be registered to and run by the salon owner. Also of note, CoLaz extensively uses a dedicated on-line texting service as a promotional tool, and to remind clients of pre-booked appointments. The SMS service runs together with Google advertising and promotions too.
In line with the CoLaz philosophy of quality, service, and the needs of our customers, it is important that the salons offer effective and affordable beauty and laser treatments. As the salon owner, it is your responsibility to enhance and optimise your business with the full support of the CoLaz brand.
The franchisee partner will require a professional approach with regard to marketing and selling the services of CoLaz. The salon owner should actively seek out local opportunities to develop and promote the business under the proven CoLaz brand.
From the initial set up of their new businesses through to fruition and beyond, the franchisee partners must be willing to operate under the CoLaz full business format system. This includes adapting and adopting to any new methods as and when they are introduced. That being said, I always welcome and encourage individual ideas, especially if they can be employed across the whole network.
• You are not alone and won’t ever feel isolated–you will have the full support of an established business on-hand whenever you need it
• You will gain all the benefits of being your own boss but have the back-up of a wider network supporting you all the way
