Offering world-class hair and beauty services, David’s Salon is a great choice when it comes to salons. Add the fact that the company is among the biggest salon chains in the Philippines makes David’s Salon an excellent option for those who wish to franchise an established brand.
History of David’s Salon
David’s Salon is the brainchild of David Charlton who began working as hairdresser in the United Kingdom since he was just 16 years old. He started working at his uncle’s salon before studying at Durham Technical College where he graduated with honors.
Afterwards, David became an instructor at a local college. He would also conduct lectures and seminars as well as attended workshops to improve his skills.
He moved to Manila in 1978 to manage Rever Salon in Mandarin Oriental Hotel, shared Franchise Manila. Later, David would become a partner before turning into the salon’s sole proprietor. He started opening new branches before formally establishing David’s Salon in 1989.
To date, there are over 200 David’s Salon outlets all over the Philippines – and the brand has long established itself for quality products and services.
How to Franchise David’s Salon
To franchise David’s Salon, you must first show that you have real passion and interest in the beauty industry because this is the key to making you succeed in this business.
Every franchisee is required to have at least 70 square meters of space, enough for a stock room, a facial room, a staff room, and 10 working stations.
While the franchisee will pick the location, David’s Salon needs to approve it. For a better chance of getting a fast approval on the location you’ve chosen, make sure that the location gets a lot of foot traffic and is in a highly visible area.
Step 1. To franchise, contact any of the following and signify your intent:
- Address: David’s Salons – Rever Training Center, 1251 Cardona St., Bgy. Poblacion, Makati City, Philippines
- Phone No.: (02)897-4247 to 51
- Fax No.: (02)897-5190
- Website: www.davidsalon.com.ph
- Email: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com
Step 2. Fill out the application form you received and prepare the necessary documents, as requested by the company.
Step 3. Pass the completely filled out forms, together with the complete documents needed.
Step 4. Attend all meetings and wait for approval.
Step 5. Once approved, pay the franchise fee of Php500,000.
Step 6. David’s Salon will take over at this point, helping in the renovations and making sure the franchisee adheres to its strict policies when it comes to salon designs/arrangements and staff trainings.
Take note that you would need to shell out at least Php1 million in total investments before your David’s Salon outlet will become fully operational but the company has good projections for the return on investment (ROI).
