About First Cut 4 Kids
First Cut 4 Kids is an upscale salon designed exclusively for children of all ages, providing service and style found previously only in upscale adult salons. At First Cut, our specialty may be children and every child's First Cut, but we also offer an array of quality services for adults at very reasonable prices.
Values & History
We believe that our haircut services for children are second-to-none. Our stylists undergo extensive specialized training for working with children including continuing education in new cutting-edge techniques and styles. Besides, our entire salon is designed to give children the best haircut in the best environment. We take the time to every child's hair right, using our innovative cutting stations with built-in media centers which include modern flat-screen TVs and video games with many DVDs and games to choose from.
What Do I Gain?According to Entrepreneur Magazine, child-focused businesses are one of the top four opportunities in 2005. Over the last few years, the children's retail and services sector of franchising has started to take off with a boom, making First Cut 4 Kids an out-of-this-world opportunity. When you own a First Cut Franchise, you join a family of entrepreneurs who want to stay focused on their customers and utilize a professional organization to do the administration, vendor contracts, computer support and research and development.
As a franchise owner, you have an established system of operation from the moment you open your salon. You receive customized training and have access to experts with years of experience in the industry so that you don't rely on your trial and error. You also become part of an organization that has national name-brand recognition. With a strong franchisor, you have been someone working on your business while you work in your business. Haircutting is a year-round, recession-proof industry.
Hair continues to grow and people will continue to get haircuts regardless of the state of the economy. Haircare is an estimated $40 billion industry, with 10-15% of that comprising the children's sector. That is an estimated $4 to $6 billion!
Purchasing a First Cut 4 Kids Franchise
First Cut is an all-cash business. When a customer receives a haircut or buys hair care products, they pay right then and there. There are no receivables to worry about. And haircuts are repeat business - your customers will come back every four to six weeks, helping your new salon grow quickly.
