MY SALON Suite® and Ratner Companies Announce Strategic Alliance

New Alternative Financing Program is Driving the Expansion of MY SALON Suite and Salon Plaza® throughout North America

NEW ORLEANS – The salon suite surge just received another major jolt…a new strategic partnership that marks a milestone moment in this rapidly expanding segment of the salon industry. This new partnership makes it possible to provide alterative financing options for qualified franchise candidates; allowing for an extensive expansion plan over the next 12 – 18 months.

MY SALON Suite, the nation’s leading upscale salon suite franchise, has joined forces with Ratner Companies, the nation’s largest family-owned collection of salons and the owners of Salon Plaza, to drive the expansion of MY SALON Suite and Salon Plaza throughout North America. MY SALON Suite has made a name for itself in major markets throughout North America for being the only salon suite franchise to offer fully equipped, upscale suites featuring state-of-the-art amenities and security systems.

“The growth we’re expecting in the second half of 2015 is tremendous,” said Ken McAllister, CEO and president of New Orleans-based Suite Management Franchising, the parent company of MY SALON Suite and now Salon Plaza. “From the moment we joined forces with Ratner Companies and Salon Plaza, we’ve had strong interest from franchise candidates throughout the United States and Canada. We look forward to meeting the increasing demand for salon suite opportunities among prospective franchise partners in every corner of the marketplace.”

Putting emphasis on select regions throughout the United States and Canada, Suite Management Franchising’s calculated growth strategy calls for adding more than 200 franchise partners, 300 salons and 7,500 members in the next five years. Full market expansion plans are in place for Orlando and Jacksonville, FL, Chicago, IL, Charlotte, NC and Nashville, TN.

The force created when joining MY SALON Suite’s proven franchise systems with Ratner’s extensive salon operations experience provides unmatched experience and knowledge for new and existing franchise partners.

“I knew MY SALON Suite was the right company to bring the Salon Plaza brand to the franchise market,” said Gary Ratner, President of Salon Plaza. “This agreement exemplifies their dedication to the company’s culture and values and their commitment to their franchise partner’s success.”
