Image Studios Franchise Cost and Requirements for 2024


1. Stress­-Free Business Model: Image Studios has developed and engineered a successful system that empowers franchisees to control and operate their business while allowing them the flexibility to focus on their goals and the things that are important to them.

2. Minimum Employees Required: In most cases, a franchisee operator can manage three to four Image Studios salons on their own (with the assistance of contract janitorial and repairs and maintenance people). On average, you will need to hire one employee for every fourth salon you open.

3. Marketing & Advertising Assistance: Now to our favorite part! Most of our franchisees are not from the beauty industry, so they may feel unsure of how to reach this niche market. Our expertise in marketing and advertising really shines as you use our fine-tuned marketing plan to help all your salon studios maintain maximum capacity.

4. Beautifully Designed Studios: We are so proud of the recognition we've received by several organizations for our fresh and unique design along with our powerful and effective marketing. It is a breath of fresh air compared to so many other salon studio concepts. Isn't it time that one finally designed a space for creative individuals?

5. Ongoing Coaching & Support: We are incredibly passionate about this business and we strongly believe that our success lies in coaching and empowering our franchisees on an ongoing basis. Their own personal development as an Image Studios entrepreneur will reflect in the success of the entire Image Studios franchise.

Buying a Franchise Guide: What is a Franchise Disclosure Document?

When evaluating a franchise opportunity, reading and understanding the current version of their FDD is a necessity. Considering the benefits of franchising, such as established brand recognition and support from the franchisor, it's important to also take into account franchise fees and franchising royalty fees. Since most franchisors are privately owned companies, the current versions of their FDDs are typically not available unless requested directly from them.
