There are many reasons franchising is such a popular way to own a business. It gives first-time entrepreneurs a much safer way to enter the world of business ownership. For veteran entrepreneurs, franchising offers a relatively low-risk investment to add to their portfolio. Owning a franchise also offers the benefit of built-in brand marketing, a loyal customer base, and a proven business model. Not only that, it also gives new franchisees the chance to leverage advice, experience, and expertise from people in their industry, as well as people operating within the exact same business model and brand.
At Pigtails & Crewcuts, our franchisees have the added benefit of our peer-to-peer franchise network to ensure their franchise ownership is as enjoyable and successful as possible.
Strong Community of Kid’s Haircut Franchise Owners
Our peer-to-peer franchise network gives new franchisees the opportunity to ask existing franchisees all the details about running their Pigtails & Crewcuts day-to-day. Pigtails & Crewcuts franchisees come from all walks of life, from stay-at-home moms to former sales executives. This provides a diverse and experienced group of business owners for our new franchisees to interact with whenever they need.
For instance, multi-unit franchise owner Jennifer Tribble is one of many Pigtails & Crewcuts franchisees who values the support of our peer-to-peer network tremendously.
My favorite thing about the brand is the community of ownership and having the feedback and support of others. I can’t imagine having to do this by myself.” – Jennifer
Franchise owners are all connected with each other through multiple channels. One of the primary ways they communicate and collaborate is through our private Facebook Group. On a daily basis, owners share experiences that others can draw inspiration from, comment on, or learn from. For example, many will share how they’ve gotten involved in their community with their kid’s hair salon franchise, which other franchisees can implement in their locations. Other times, the Facebook Group can act as a forum to share frustrations and seek solutions, whether it be a human resources or marketing issue. In addition to that digital connection, Pigtails & Crewcuts franchisees are able to meet face-to-face at a franchise conference every 18 months. These are important opportunities to spend time together with the extended Pigtails & Crewcuts franchise family, a group of like-minded individuals who are all going through similar situations operating their own kid’s hair salons.
Our Network Sets Us Apart
Most successful franchisors offer support to their franchisees, but this usually takes the form of franchise support. While corporate support is incredibly important to us at Pigtails & Crewcuts, we also take pride in providing our franchisees the opportunity to share concerns and solutions among themselves, as well.
We know that being able to communicate with other kid’s haircut franchise owners, who have likely experienced the same situations as new franchisees, better understand which specific tips would best help new owners. We have the information, but they have firsthand experience. When it comes to business ownership, we know experience is everything. Cutting children’s hair comes with challenges, and running a successful children’s hair salon franchise becomes much easier with the right support in place. And, at Pigtails & Crewcuts, we know our franchisees need strong support in order to be successful. Our peer-to-peer franchise network offers a platform for that support, with plenty of advice and guidance from like-minded business owners like you.
