Salon Franchise Makes Kids Grooming A Treat Opening Its Eighth Location In Texas

Snip-its (www.snipits.com), the fastest growing franchise of children’s hair salons in the U.S., has opened its newest location in Pearland, Texas. The new 1500 sq. ft. salon at 2810 Business Center Drive marks the eighth Snip-its location in Texas. The salon offers a creative destination for children’s haircuts in a fun and animated cartoon environment with specially trained and friendly stylists. The salon will also feature a children’s party room for memorable birthday parties.

“A children’s haircut can be a stressful task for parents and kids,” said Alane Middleton, owner of the new Snip-its. “Snip-its of Pearland is designed to turn an ordinary and mundane experience into an enjoyable haircut visit that ends with a smile. Inside a dynamic environment, we offer a clean and safe salon so that everyone feels assured and happy.”

Snip-its, a growing kids franchise, offers children a no-tears haircut experience that’s weaved with vibrant colors and reminds many customers of a Saturday morning cartoon. The salon interior features a cast of Snip-its own branded animated cartoon characters: Snips, Jean Luc le Spritz, Curly Comb, Flyer Joe Dryer, the Clip-ette Sisters, and Maranga Mirror plus animated videos, salon-tailored educational computer games and “cushy” parents chairs so Moms can sit nearby. At the end of each visit, children receive a prize in exchange for a lock of hair from the “Magic Box.”

“Having served in the community with youth ministry, Alane brings a leadership mentality to the salon and an ear to local needs,” said James George, the CEO of Snip-its. “She and her husband Wesley will be great partners for Snip-its and I look forward to their success.”

GayFranchise.com – provides a solution-based alternative to corporate downsizing

The year 2009 has finally arrived and we are collectively filled with such a dichotomy of emotions. President-Elect Obama is now the first African American president and at the same time, the economy is rearing its ugly head leaving us spinning with a sense of wonder.

The recession has obviously affected most of us on some level. It is possible that we will see at least one or more of our friends face a lay-off from their current place of employment. Sometimes life forces us to change our lives around despite our reluctant efforts to hold on. As scary as this appears, there is still hope.

It’s time to start focusing on making the lemonade rather than crying over the lemons. Even if you are still currently employed, it is always good to look at possible solutions if the inevitable happens.

If you are a veteran of corporate America, you first instinct after being laid off is to start contacting headhunters or pouring over the Sunday classifieds in search of another place of employment. Some of you think to yourself, “Ok, I need stability. I need to know that I have a consistent paycheck every week plus benefits.” But others might think, “I am so sick and tired of my life being out of my control.” If the latter is you, then this article is for you.

Buy a franchise!

In January of 2008, Echelon Business Media Inc., owner of Echelonmagazine.com created GayFranchise.com to bridge the gap between mainstream franchisors and the LGBT community. This site offers a directory of over 60 franchise opportunities in various categories, from coffee shops to financial planning franchises.

Despite some in our community who profess a policy of privacy when it comes to their sexual orientation at work, who we are in all aspects of our lives, comes out at the office. Whether it be the office Christmas party, or telling people what you did over the weekend, or even requesting domestic partner benefits, our sexual orientation eventually comes out at work. If this has become a problem for you in the past, it is all the more reason to own your own business.

GayFranchise gets your sexual orientation out of the way from the get-go. Our franchises are looking for a diverse array of franchisees. Your fear of being outed is completely alleviated from the moment you request more information. Gay neighborhoods are sprouting up all of the U.S., and having a gay-owned franchise in these areas are an added plus to the franchise owner as well as the master franchise. The clients within the GayFranchise directory are targeting their opportunity towards the Gay community for a variety of reasons. Most members of our community are more available as the majority of us don’t have children. The amount of people with a college education skews very high in most polls. We also have an understanding of “risk” as it is risky enough as it is to come out of the closet.

Choosing to own a franchise rather than starting a business from scratch poses many advantages. Franchises already possess brand exposure in the market. This is one of the toughest jobs of any new entrepreneur. It presents an immediate credibility and reliability with your future customers. There is also no need to create a business plan from scratch. You are buying a “business in a box” as each opportunity has a proven and consistent system for you to follow. Lastly, there is always someone in your corner. Training is provided and it’s always nice to be able to call someone for the answers.

GayFranchise also lists several vendors who can assist you in making your purchase. Whether it’s one of our Capital Partners, Consultants or Attorneys, these companies stand by to aid you making your franchise ownership a reality.

So let this year be about broadening your horizons by researching other opportunities to your current state of employment and being prepared for whatever may come your way.
