Suite Management Franchising Celebrates Having “A Full House” at its 2019 Annual Conference
Premier Salon Suite Franchise Recognizes 100-Location Milestone And Suite Relief Fund
NEW ORLEANS – Suite Management Franchising, the nation’s premier salon suite franchise including MY SALON Suite and Salon Plaza, brought franchise partners together for its annual convention and awards ceremony. The three-day event was held from February 5 to 8 in Las Vegas.
Themed “A Full House,” the conference focused on the brands’ milestone of surpassing 100 locations. With plans in place to add more than 50 stores in 2019, franchisees, corporate staff and vendor partners of MY SALON Suite and Salon Plaza came together to celebrate the brands’ achievements and introduce new initiatives to support the growth, franchisee operations and salon suite members.
“Bringing everyone together is a powerful experience,” said Ken McAllister, CEO of Suite Management Franchising and president of MY SALON Suite. “We have a great team of franchise partners and corporate staff that together have built the brand to what it is today – opening a new location every week in 2019. The conference is a time to collaborate and learn from one another while sharing our plans and initiatives for the future. It’s a great time to be a part of the suite movement – we’re still just getting started.”
Under Suite Management Franchising there are more than 100 salon suite locations between MY SALON Suite and Salon Plaza. In the past year, the brand opened 38 new locations. In 2018, existing locations saw a record high in occupancy rates signaling the continued demand for salon suites. In addition to seeing significant growth in the past 12 months, the brand’s Net Promoter Score has increased by 11 points, bringing its score to a solid 82, which is well above average.
Suite Management Franchising also recently introduced a new initiative – Suite Relief Fund. Franchise partners of MY SALON Suite and Salon Plaza have an opportunity to give back to the community by opting into the Suite Relief Fund, which partly benefits St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to give back and help families in need. Since November 2018, Suite Management Franchising has donated more than $50,000 to St. Jude. Part of the Suite Relief Fund will also go to support Salon Plaza and MY SALON Suite’s members in times of disaster or tragic life events.
“As we look to surpassing 165 locations come the end of 2019, it’s important to us that we continue to find ways to support the communities we serve as well as our members who might find themselves in hard times,” added McAlister. “Introducing the Suite Relief Fund has given us an opportunity to come together as a whole franchise to do good. We look forward to watching the Suite Relief Fund develop as we expand our footprint across the country.”
