Cherry Blow Dry Bar Experiences Rapid Growth In 2018

Published on Franchising.com on January 2, 2019

Cherry Blow Dry Bar - an expanding franchise that provides premium express services including blowouts, hair extensions, makeup services and treatments - celebrates a remarkable year of brand growth with a 44 percent growth rate in 2018.

Launched in 2013 and franchising since 2015, the brand has 18 total locations across seven states, about half of the salons opened in 2018 alone. Further, the affordable-glamorous brand opened eight new locations this year and entered new markets, including Georgia, Texas, and Louisiana, expanding its presence into the Southern states of the United States. In addition to the openings, the brand signed 11 franchise development deals calling for a total of 65 additional units - one deal was signed with a development group in Southern California calling 50 locations in the next several years to come.

“This year has been full of growth for Cherry Blow Dry Bar,” expressed Fred Vicario, CEO of Cherry Blow Dry Bar. “Since launching our franchising opportunity, 2018 has been one of our best years on record. The new salon openings and multi-unit development deals we signed will play a vital role in propelling the brand forward over the next several years.”

Plans for the first quarter of 2019 show that the company has no plans of slowing down as approximately four new salons are slated to open. In the New Year, the brand estimates to have 20 new salons open and operating all while continuously signing new franchisees.

Cherry Blow Dry Bar offers blowouts for hair of any length starting at about $40. Customers can pick and choose from the salon’s styling menu which includes nine different hairstyles - from updos and beachy waves to braids and voluminous curls. Salons offer three types of memberships, starting at about $59.99 for two monthly blowouts.

Although Cherry Blow Dry Bar primarily focuses on blowouts, other beauty services such as hair extensions, treatments, makeup application and even scalp massages are also offered.

“While growing our footprint nationally has been the goal since we launched our franchise opportunity - our main priority is to create a place that women will use as their go-to salon for blowouts and makeup services,” noted Vicario. “Cherry Blow Dry Bar exists to provide a welcoming environment for guests to come and receive glamorous services with long-lasting results at affordable prices. Our success and growth would not have been feasible without our dedicated team members and incredible franchisees.”

To augment the company’s growth, Vicario is looking for franchisee partners who have a passion for customer service and have a strong business acumen. Including a franchise fee of $39,000 the initial investment to open a Cherry Blow Dry Bar franchise is between $235,000-350,000.

Today, there are 18 salons open and operating in seven states - Florida, Georgia, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Alabama, Louisiana and Virginia - with nearly 80 more under various stages of development throughout the country.
