Camille Albane Salons Complement Owners’ Existing Portfolios
Savvy entrepreneurs with business ownership experience will benefit from the stable salon industry coupled with Camille Albane’s upscale model
It’s profitable. It’s recession-resistant. It offers opportunity for community engagement. These are just some of the reasons many first-time business owners are drawn to the salon industry. They also are why experienced business professionals are looking for information about owning a Camille Albane salon franchise.
Camille Albane offers all the value of the salon business proposition, with the added incentive of operating in a new, mid-range niche that is ripe for expansion in multiple markets across the United States.
Sales outpace other salon sectors
“Camille Albane’s attention to detail — everything from unique products only available at our salons, to all the little things that define French beauty — is something that hasn’t been seen in the United States,” says Linda Chadwick, President and CEO. “There is a wide and growing market of women, as well as men, who want a higher-end experience without committing to a full day at a spa, and they are willing to pay for it.”
That’s why a Camille Albane salon franchise looks and feels different from its competitors at either end of the salon spectrum. The décor, the robes and the complimentary espresso and tea all play into the experience. The revenues from a steady stream of customers, coupled with ticket sales that usually average $90 or above, create value right away.
Experienced owners maximize market penetration
Because the Camille Albane salon franchise concept is new to the United States, there’s an opportunity in every market for a smart rollout. It requires a business owner who knows the community and knows how to get the name in front of the right mix of customers.
“The marketing strategies we have in place for every Camille Albane salon franchise are designed to help owners at varying levels of business experience succeed, but we find that having some business-operating experience is very helpful,” Linda says. “Being able to get the salon up and running while also beginning to build the brand is a challenge. Because of the many positives that Camille Albane offers, a successful person who already has a presence in the market has a leg up in terms of making a success of the business from opening day.”
