The Investment

What Makes Our Franchise Special

From the moment you walk in to the moment you leave, we deliver an experience like no other salon. Designed with a children-centered layout, all Chiquicuts Salons feature a fun atmosphere rich in color, child-appropriate decor, kiddie furniture, and fairy tale-themed equipment without neglecting to consider both safety and comfort as key elements.

Each of our styling station is ergonomically suited for children, with smaller hair styling equipment and a staff of stylists who are trained to work with kids. Free mechanical rides, video games, and a small movie theater are also part of our entertainment amenities, and a souvenir toy is always given at the end of each service session.

The amount of working capital required depends upon the level of gross income the business achieves once open, the expenses it must cover to “break-even”, and other business decisions that vary from owner-to-owner.
