Questions To Ask When Choosing A Salon Space For Rent

By May 10, 2023Salon Spa Blog
Can you afford to own a hair salon? We say yes, you can, at Salon & Spa Galleria.

Your options in choosing a salon space for rent are many; narrowing the list of possibles down to the “right one” can seem daunting, so we are here to help you with that task. We are Salon & Spa Galleria, serving the Greater Fort Worth area with twenty-two salon suite rental locations. Call us at 817-917-1416 for more information and/or to arrange for a tour of what we believe are the best salon suites available in Tarrant County.

First, what is a salon space for rent?

Let’s get this first question out of the way right off the bat.

To understand a salon suite for rent, think a normal retail establishment only smaller.  The large majority of retail shops and businesses rent/lease the location where their business is housed. With a salon suite rental, you are renting a single suite rather than an entire building.  Obviously, this appeals to those just starting out in business because the rental/lease cost is much lower, as is all other overhead expenses.

This is, in fact, the new trend in operating a hair salon/beauty salon/nail salon.  It is affordable, it is doable for many beauty professionals, and there is a much better chance of succeeding using this business model.

The right questions about a salon space for rent.

With all that in mind, it then becomes a matter of choosing the right salon studio for rent from the many offered, and knowing what questions to ask is important in making that decision.

The first question, obviously, is rental cost, as your budget is crucial to your success. There is no standard rental cost for a salon suite. The prices differ from city to city.  Using our own Salon & Spa Galleria as an example, we can tell you that our salon rentals begin at $75 per week, but we must also mention that our rental price is considerably lower than you will find in many cities.

Once you get past the price, it is then time to ask what is included in that price? Are you simply getting a suite for that price, or are amenities added to sweeten the deal?  Again, for example, our $75 per week includes utilities, includes WiFi, includes a free HDTV, includes 24/7 access and security monitoring, and includes a web page on our website. This, obviously, increases the attractiveness of our rental package, and greatly decreases the overhead of our clients.

Third, and now we are really getting down to it, how is the area where the rental is located?  Does it have consistent traffic going by? Are there walk-up capabilities?  Is it considered a desirable part of town?  The best rental package possible decreases in value quickly if the area of the salon suite is depressed or undergoing a negative transformation.

When in doubt, as those who came before you.

Once you have narrowed your list of possibles down to the Top Three, it is time to go interview those who are leasing from the Top Three. Ask for their opinions and concerns.  They have no reason to fabricate a review; no reason to lie to you; no reason to sugarcoat their opinion. It won’t take you long to find out what you need to find out by simply talking to those who are already renting.

Some simple investigative work, over the span of a week or two, will greatly aid in making the right decision for you.

A final word about Salon & Spa Galleria.

Salon & Spa Galleria is locally owned and operated, our rental package is second to none, and we encourage you to talk to our current and past clients.  Call us with any questions and arrange for a tour of our facilities.
