That’s why investors love the Image Studios 360 business model.

Here's how it works: we take large retail space around 5,000 sf and build out 28-32 salon 'studios' that are leased to beauty professionals such as hair stylists, estheticians, nail techs and massage therapists who operate their own business within their studio. It's like a mini-mall of hair salons all under one roof. Our systems, strategic marketing and the appeal of our brand helps keep studios leased out for optimal ROI. This provides stable and predictable cash flow for investors which allows them to focus on growing additional locations in their real estate portfolio.

The beauty industry is projected to grow 14% annually for the period 2012 - 2022 (compared to 11% for all other sectors). The salon and spa industry is a vibrant and growing component of the U.S. economy, but franchise establishments represent only 9% of all businesses. This industry is highly fragmented with no clear leader making it the perfect opportunity for Image Studios 360 to become the #1 studio salon franchise in the country.
