Description About This Posting: Hair Salon Franchise
Haircuts will always be a 'neighborhood business.' Amazon is not going to co-opt this market segment, it won't be 'out-sourced' overseas, and, even in economic downturns, people get their hair cut.
This is a franchise re-sale, with established employees and customers, for less than half the cost of a new location. But, the buyer can choose to take over the franchise or 'go independent' and relinquish the franchise. In a growing affluent downtown location, this is a relatively simple business model: a walk-in, convenient haircare salon that requires no haircare experience or expertise by the owner-manager. It's a 'cash-based' model with no receivables. And, it's perfect for the 'absentee' or 'semi-absentee' owner. The franchisor provides extensive training and support.
This shop is located in the East Bay in a thriving, affluent downtown neighborhood. The current owner (franchisee) started the business and built out the premises in 2015. The lease extends through March 2020, and there are two 5-year renewal options (through March 2030) at favorable rental rates.
Currently there are over 1,000 active (monthly) customers. With minimal local marketing, this number could double in a short time. Annual sales are about $265,00 and growing. The owner (franchisee) is an absentee-manager earning modest profits (close to $20K per year) for very minimal involvement in the business. An on-site owner-manager could earn many times that number.
At $89,000, this Great Clips resale is a great opportunity!
Why buy a new unproven, unsubstantiated Great Clips franchise location for a lot of money, when you can buy an existing location with all the work already done at a fraction of the cost.
The estimated cost to buy a new Great Clips franchise territory, build out the facility, and get started is over $150,000. And, in addition the 'starting-from-scratch' franchisee must find a location, negotiate a lease, build out the space, purchase and install equipment and fixtures, pay three to four months rent before opening the doors, hire employees, go several months at a loss while spending time and money to build a local market, etc. The total investment for a 'new' franchise can easily exceed $250,000.
The cost to take over this existing location, with all that set-up time, work, and investment already done, is just $89,000, complete, including any franchise transfer fee. But, if the buyer does not want to be bound by the Great Clips franchise, the business can be acquired without the franchise agreement. The choice is entirely up to the buyer.
The owner is open to an extended training, transition, and consultation period, depending on the needs and wishes of the new owner.
Price & Transaction. The price is $89,000 (subject to negotiation and terms). It is priced to sell. The business is offered as a sale of all the tangible/physical assets of the company, plus the intangible property, including the franchise (if wanted), phone number, customer data, etc. It does not include accounts receivable, cash on hand, or the facility rent deposits. The owner will assist with a smooth, 'seamless' transition.

We all understand the idea of paying too much for a small business. But is there such a thing as not paying enough? That seems like an odd notion, but I'm familiar with situations in which a buyer acquired a small business for a figure substantially under what probably was market value.
We're hearing more and more about "crowd funding" through sites like gofundme and kickstarter as a possible way to raise the cash needed to buy a small business. This method of collecting funds has proven successful in other kinds of situations. Could this strategy work when buying a small business?
Should owners who offer a business for sale reveal to prospective buyers any income that is not recorded in the books? This is a controversial topic with arguments both for and against. Most business sales intermediaries believe if you don't pay tax on it, you can't claim it. Some sellers disagree.
