As of 2019, Pigtails & Crewcuts has expanded into 23 states with 62 locations. We currently have 61 new salons in development, which will almost double the amount of operating locations. This includes four new Georgia locations, one of which – Buford – will open later this year. We’ve seen tremendous growth this year, and the future looks even brighter.
Pigtails & Crewcuts fills a need to provide kids and parents alike a positive, necessary service, while ensuring our franchisees are successful. Haircuts can be scary. Many children hate being dragged to a salon or barber shop by their frustrated parent and subjected to an experience they find tense and unpleasant. Cutting children’s hair isn’t easy, but getting a child’s hair cut should be.
Through a focus on making the child’s experience at our salon fun, positive, and pleasant, we’ve turned Pigtails & Crewcuts into a rapidly-rising kid’s haircut franchise ready for explosive growth.
Who is Pigtails & Crewcuts?
At Pigtails & Crewcuts, our goal is to instill lasting confidence in children during our stress-free haircuts – an experience that, anywhere else, can often be frightening. We take the fright right out of the experience with our store décor and amenities. Between the movies, games, toys, and themed car chairs we provide children during their haircut, we strive to make every haircut as fun, exciting, and enjoyable as possible. With an experience that can so often go wrong for families, we know taking the stress and temper tantrums out of haircuts may just earn us a loyal customer for years to come. A happy child means a happy parent.
When Wade Brannon visited Pigtails & Crewcuts with his children, he fell in love with the idea. More importantly, his kids did, too. Despite being retired from the franchising industry, Wade couldn’t resist the opportunity to grow the potential he saw during his Pigtails & Crewcuts experience and is now our President and CEO. More than 10 years later, Wade has grown Pigtails & Crewcuts into a heavily-desired investment for aspiring franchisees.
Why It Works
At Pigtails & Crewcuts, we’ve established a recession-resilient business. Regardless of what shape the economy is in, parents will take their children to get haircuts. This keeps our business steady and out of the grasp of the constantly fluctuating market. We also provide our franchisees a number of benefits to give them a leg up on competition. Franchisees need no prior industry experience to join the Pigtails & Crewcuts family. We provide ample training – both in the classroom and in the salon – to make sure our franchisees are primed and ready to run their own Pigtails & Crewcuts. We also require low overhead and start-up costs, giving franchisees a head-start toward generating a profit.
Our Pigtails & Crewcuts corporate team remains active in providing support to franchisees throughout their journey with us. We also provide all franchise owners with a peer-to-peer communication platform for additional support. This allows franchisees to connect with each other directly, which is helpful in running the day-to-day operations as a Pigtails & Crewcuts salon owner.
