Most Franchises require the business owner to manage the day-to-day activities of the business and live close to the business. We DO NOT! Almost all of our current franchisees maintain their current jobs along with their Sharkey’s Cuts for Kids franchise. "Passive ownership is what Sharkey's is all about”, says CEO Scott Sharkey. “We’ve been able to combine a passive ownership franchise model that is 100% recession proof for today and years to come”. SHARKEY’S WILL STAFF YOUR SALON FOR YOU: No need to hire your employees anymore! Sharkey’s will offer you the option to fully staff your salon prior to opening! ROI: Sharkey’s is not one of those “trendy” franchises where you might see a return on your investment in 3 – 5 years, only to have your concept get replaced by something bigger, better, or more “trendy”. We offer you the opportunity to invest in a brand that has longevity, is fun to run, and has very little competition. We are offering today the same services we offered back in 2002! Kids always need haircuts and you cannot get that on Amazon!
The overall hair care industry is a $55-billion per year industry. It is estimated that hair care for children makes up $5 billion of the market. According to the 2000 census, there are over 52 million children between the ages of 0 and 12 in the US and they average 8 haircuts per year. This is Sharkey's target market.
Sharkey's is leading the industry by overtaking our closest competitor in 2008 with the title "Fastest Growing Children's Hair Salon" by Franchise Times. Award Winning Kids Salon Franchise - 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, & 2020 and Entrepreneur Magazine’s top kid’s salon franchise for 2016!
Sharkey's really sets itself apart from the competitors with our well-planned design and unequaled entertainment factor. We don't just cater to the youngest of children or one gender - we have positioned ourselves in the market for kids of all ages, and adults as well! Once children come to a Sharkey’s salon, they want to come back again & again because they enjoy the entire experience. We have extremely high brand loyalty among our young customers and their parents as well.
"From my first phone call I have felt like I was Sharkey's number one priority. Scott doesn’t just provide a great mentorship, he is open to my insight as well. Going into this new business we had never been in the salon industry before but with Scott's guidance and the Sharkey's Cuts for Kids brand we have had no issues generating business. We are looking forward to continuing to grow the children's hair salon business in our area!" Sincerely yours, Amanda & Paul - (owner of 2 franchises)
"Through every challenge I faced you were right there ready, willing, and able to provide your experience & wisdom. You are a great person and even a better Franchisor. From our very first conversation I felt confident in my decision to invest in your concept. Now that my salon is officially up and running I know without a doubt it was one of the best decisions I have ever made!" Thank you Sincerely, Eileen
"Scott is dedicated to his franchisees and works as hard for them as he does for his company-owned store. He is a tireless worker and is always full of great ideas." Jane & Todd (13 year franchisee, owner of 4 salons)
