We are bucking the trend in salon leasing by suggesting that smaller is better. We know that, and in this article we will tell you why the leading salon suite rental agency in Fort Worth recommends starting small and growing into success.

We are Salon & Spa Galleria, leading the way in the rental of salon suites in the Greater Fort Worth area. Call us at 817-917-1416 for more information and to arrange for a tour of our affordable luxury salon suites.

Forget the “bigger is better” fallacy with salon leasing.

It happened again just last year in a business location in North Fort Worth. A business opened to great fanfare, enjoyed a solid first few weeks, rapidly spread the word about excellent customer service, and then the owner found themselves in the unenviable position of not being able to meet the demand.  They were short of staff, they were short of product, and just that quickly, the goodwill faded and the business struggled.

They had grown too large too quickly, and it cost them dearly. Today, that business is no longer, a flash in the pan, a footnote in the business history of that North Fort Worth neighborhood.

We do not want that for you.  Read on!

Why going small in salon leasing is the best path.

Opening a business is daunting and nerve-wracking.  How’s that for the cold, hard truth?  When you open a business, you are laying it all on the line, financially and emotionally.  You have no safety net.  You have no guaranteed income. Chances are you have sunk your savings into this business venture, and you are naturally concerned about the future. What will you do if you fail? How will you ever recover?

That is why we recommend starting small.  You will always have the opportunity to grow your hair salon into success.  Smart entrepreneurs know that the opening few months are the most crucial when it comes to owning a business. What you do in those first few months will shape your future.  It is much easier to go forward if you think small first, large later.  The first customer is the most important, and you build upon the success you experience with that first customer.  Get that person right, build on that success, learn from small mistakes before they become big mistakes, and move forward slowly.

Building a solid foundation is always the best idea.

The tendency is to want it all now rather than later. The tendency is to build Rome all at once rather than stone by stone, but we are telling you, from our vast experience, that each of those stones is crucial.  The wrong placement of a foundation stone can mean the collapse of the entire structure. The right placement of all the stones means your foundation can handle the increased weight of success.

Salon & Spa Galleria offers a 26-step business plan to follow, a plan based upon our years of experience.  We offer workshops for your continued education.  We provide the environment where you can start slowly, learn as you go, and grow at a healthy rate when you are ready, And that makes all the difference for our many clients.
