What are My Startup Costs?
An upscale beauty franchise for sale for a surprisingly affordable investment
Camille Albane Paris is a salon franchise that appeals to a particular demographic – chic, successful clients aged 25-45 who live in upscale urban neighborhoods. These clients know what they want and are willing to pay for it. We keep that in mind when deciding on the perfect locations for our Camille Albane franchises. Most salons are around 1,200 square feet, and rents may vary.
Typically, a new franchisee can expect to pay between $250,000 and $275,000 per salon. That includes a $40,000 franchise fee, which gives you the rights to operate as part of the Camille Albane brand. Investors who buy more than one salon can expect a significant discount on franchise fees: They will pay $75,000 in franchise fees total for three salons and $100,000 for five salons.
Your startup costs also will include training at our flagship salon in Boston; access to a web portal for all your marketing and advertising materials; the exclusive lineup of Camille Albane products; shampoo bowls, chairs and other furniture and fixtures; signs; insurance; promotional costs for 90 days; and $30,000-$50,000 in operating expenses for your first three months in business.
