Pigtails & Crewcuts, a national children’s hair salon franchise, has announced plans to continue to expand the southeast region throughout 2021, specifically targeting markets in Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, and Tennessee. The brand puts an emphasis on creating memorable experiences for children and their families with their fun and interactive business model, and is seeking entrepreneurs who wish to provide this experience to their communities. Currently operating in 60 salons in 21 states – including one that recently opened in Happy Valley, AZ – Pigtails & Crewcuts expects to open a total of 10 additional units by the end of 2021.
Targeted areas in the Southeast include:
- Georgia: Augusta, Cumming, Johns Creek, Macon
- Florida: Tampa, Miami
- South Carolina: Charleston, Columbia
- Tennessee: Nashville
Created by parents for children, Pigtails & Crewcuts has welcomed families into its salons for memorable kids’ haircutting experiences for nearly two decades. Each salon cultivates an inviting atmosphere with brightly colors walls and themed car chairs and ensure a fun and stress-free environment for children and their parents. The team at franchise headquarters has over 75 years of combined franchising experience, and, especially throughout this past year, have a strong focus on franchise support.
“Our brand’s hospitable dedication to both the customers and the franchisees within the Pigtails’ system has led us to develop a strong presence and proven business model throughout the nation,” said President and CEO, Wade Brannon. “We are committed to finding the right fits for franchise partners and are looking forward to continued growth in our home region.”
That expansion took place in the headquarters’ backyard in 2020. Scott Cook, who signed an agreement to open multiple salons south of Atlanta, opened his first of three locations in the summer of 2020, and had faith in the support he was given from his franchisor. “The franchise supports me greatly. It is not at all uncommon for me to call my Franchise Support Specialist, and he always picks right up to help me with whatever problem I may have,” says Scott. “The franchise team has a can-do attitude. It is very much a system of comradery and whatever we can do to help you out.” Scott has recently secured the space for his location in McDonough, GA and is looking to open in the fourth quarter of 2021.
Pigtails & Crewcuts is targeting franchising growth in strong, family-friendly communities in the southeast. The target markets include total populations of at least 75,000. Rooted in a recession-proof industry that’s always growing, the wavy economy cannot diminish the $7 billion annual spend on children’s haircare.
The Pigtails & Crewcuts franchise opportunity is ideal for family-focused and business-savvy operators. No industry experience is necessary to become a franchisee, as its extensive training program allows for novices to become experts and owners need not become stylists. Franchisees benefit from low overhead and start-up costs as well as a large peer-to-peer support system. The initial investment for Pigtails & Crewcuts, which includes the franchise fee, ranges between $98,750 and $230,250 depending on size and location.
