We Love to Answer Questions

It’s one of the qualities of an exceptional franchise partner.  We want you to have all the information you need to make the best decision for your future.  Here’s a start, and when you want to know more, we’re here to help.

No experience needed.  You need a combination of skills and experience, but not necessarily in running a salon or knowing how to do the services.  Rather, an ideal franchise partner will have an entrepreneurial spirit, business management skills, and a passion for developing people and providing outstanding customer service.

An exceptional franchise partner gives up entrepreneurial stress in exchange for an established system.  The upside of that exchange is support from an experienced franchisor, one that can assist you through all phases of your business development and operation.  A great franchise partner has strong work ethic and a commitment to follow proven systems.  A partner that is a team player, committed to grow not only their business, but to improve the franchise system overall.

We offer a proven concept and superior franchise support systems.  Incomes from each location depends on many variables, market size, demographics, occupancy costs, efforts made by franchise partners, competency, and economic factors.  Your success is our success, so we’ll work with you to help your franchise reach its full potential.

Absolutely, multi-unit operators are welcome.  We are looking for motivated entrepreneurs who want to grow at a fast rate and have fun doing it!

If you choose to be a multi-unit owner, we provide a discount on the franchise fee for each additional Vixen® Franchise territory.

That decision is completely up to you.  It is possible to maintain a full-time job and watch over the operation of your business with occasional supervision.  You also may work at your business on a full-time basis.  However, consistent strong engagement is required to ensure success.  Depending on your circumstances, it can work both ways.  If you designate a manager to run the day-to-day operations of your franchise, you can be assured they will get in-depth and comprehensive training to do so.
