About the Sale
- Reason For Selling:
After a 15 years of operating the business, the owners are considering retiring
The owners have taken measures in recent years to delegate day to day responsibilities to key employees and largely run the business absentee. One owner who does some of the styling, only works with clients a few days a month now, and has trained some of the veteran stylists to also take a leading role in the continuing education and training of the staff. The other owner only works onsite a few days a month as well and has trained some managers and salon directors to manage the front desk and administrative duties.
