Hilton Smythe are delighted to present to the market HuckleBerry Hair Salon, a highly renowned family run salon business first established in 1997.
The business is now being sold due to other business interests and a full business handover will be offered to allow any new owner the ability to walk straight in and continue trading.
The salon comes with 5 star ratings with outstanding reviews on Facebook (118 votes) Google, and have been voted by clients in both towns as the ‘best salon to visit’
They have developed a contemporary salon space with personal tutorial screens at each hair station, the ability to book appointments online as well receive advice on keeping hair in good condition. Their own range salon products account for 16% of the combined sales and we feel the promotion of these products to also purchase online would significantly boost turnover levels.
Our clients inform us 95% of clients are women and 5% are men allowing any new buyer to further add their experience in more men’s grooming styles and products.
The salon offers hair styling and colouring (use Lomax and Goldwell colours) for clients from 25-55 and ensure they keep up to date with new styles and trends for this core age group and have developed a ‘salon educator’ who makes the trading within both salons. Our client concentrates on the mid range pricing levels of salons within the area.
The salon comes with a strong and established, fully employed team in place with clear progression planning and new starter training guidance to ensure stability and standards.
Our clients now operate a mainly hands-off approach, allowing the excellent team to manage the day to day operations. They identify there are many areas they have not
investigated to grow the business more, these include -
- Increase the number of stylists
- Add beauty services
- Increase the men’s styling
- Increase online product sales
- Increase bridal and party/ prom hair
- Increase the pricing levels within each salon
- Add a further salon to the company
We are very excited about the sale of this vibrant yet established salon opportunity and advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.Our client is selling another salon in East Sussex. Please see reference B05684Location
