Sarah Khan had been looking at running her own business...while bringing up her two children.
Previously she had been a business consultant for a large IT firm, but she wanted a career that could fit in with her children’s routine.
Sarah investigated franchises and non-franchise businesses, but as a first timer she knew that the franchise route was more beneficial and expedient.
The Franchisor provides guidance and support from the beginning, allowing Sarah to benefit from the marketing initiatives of an established brand.
Why this franchise?
Sharkey's Cuts for Kids appealed to Sarah because:
- It was centered on kids and parents, a market she related to
- She believes in the concept - the kids are made to feel special, and
- Unlike many small businesses, this was fun.
Sarah now owns the Radlett, Hertfordshire salon. She found that her young customers always leave with a balloon in hand and a huge smile on their face - talking about their next visit.
I love my Sharkey's franchise - it's such a rewarding place to be in!
Sarah Khan - Franchise owner
A two-stream opportunity
Sharkey’s also offers a unique party experience, different from others on the market and with a focus on retail products. Sarah's business is now doing better than she expected and is maintaining upward steady growth, plus she's keeping customer loyalty.
The start of something good…
The business is now increasing its opening hours now to meet demand for cuts and parties, and Khan has plenty of future bookings. With a plan to open additional units in place, Sarah Khan has found a fantastic concept that fills a gap in the UK hairdressing and kids’ parties market.
