"Passive ownership is what Sharkey's is all about", says CEO Scott Sharkey. "We have been able to combine a passive ownership franchise with a model that is 100% recession proof for today and years to come. Sharkey's Cuts for Kids is not one of those trendy franchises where maybe you make back your ROI within 3-5 years before your concept gets replaced by something bigger, better, or more trendy. Our franchise offers people the opportunity to invest in a brand that has longevity, is fun to run, is recession proof and has very little competition. Kids always need haircuts and you cannot get that on Amazon. Our goal is to give people a passive ownership opportunity at a very nominal cost. Its longevity is an investment, giving owners the option to pass their business down to future generations".
Sharkey's sets itself apart from the competitors with our well planned design and unequaled entertainment factor. We don't just cater to the youngest of children or one gender - we have positioned ourselves in the market for kids of all ages (0-14), and adults too! We have extremely high brand loyalty among our young customers and their parents.

Best designed kid's salon franchise for attracting kids above the ages of 6. If your salon is too "baby-ish" or "cartoony" it will not attract the older kids. You cannot sustain a profitable business in this industry if you only focus on and attract kids between the ages of 0-6. Sharkey's is the only kids salon designed with the older kids in mind.
Multiple revenue streams and state of the art salon software.
The Franchisor will visit you personally and choose the perfect location for your Sharkey's salon.
Franchisees can log into their salon desktop from the kitchen table or a laptop anywhere and see everything in real time. Sharkey's software allows customers to book appointments with their favorite stylist online. Approximately 70% of all appointments are booked online at Sharkey's corporate salon.

Looking for passive owners who would like to stay in their current job and open multiple locations. No hair experience necessary. Interested in running the business from a remote location or from home. Fairly good social media skills, but not required, as this can be outsourced.
