Men’s Salon Business Plan

Jonpaul’s is an upscale old-world barber shop that offers progressive gentlemen a haven to relax and experience grooming and services in a masculine and therapeutic atmosphere. Aimed at an exclusive market, we provide "World Class Services" not available elsewhere in Gigaburb. Our goal is to increase our client base and become a trusted destination for our community to refresh, replenish, and network.

Our objectives for Jonpaul’s are as follows:

1. Exceed customer expectations and create a service-based company.

2. Increase sales by the end of Year 2 and double revenue by the end of Year 3.

3. Increase client base by at least 20% each year through superior performance and referrals.

4. Achieve a client return rate of 90% by the end of Year 1.

5. Become a well-established community destination by the end of Year 1.

Jonpaul’s is a full-service gentleman’s barber shop that focuses on providing world-class grooming services to our clients. We prioritize high-quality products and offer an enjoyable and relaxing atmosphere at a reasonable price. Our motto is “World Class Service Begins Here”.

After an unsuccessful search for an existing high-end barber shop to purchase, we have decided to start our own exclusive barber shop from scratch. The start-up capital will be used for design, leasehold improvements, and equipment. We have allocated enough funds to cover operational expenses for the first two months.

3.1 Product and Service Description

Laser Hair Removal

3.2 Competitive Comparison

There are many salons in The Mall’s area, but no direct competitors. There is no one place in the greater Gigaburb area that offers a high-end gentleman’s barber shop exclusively for men, where a gentleman can sit back, relax in a gentleman’s club atmosphere and experience the art of traditional grooming services in an environment that is masculine and therapeutic.

3.3 Sales Literature

Service brochure, logo/slogan with advertising to be included, and a planned website.

3.4 Fulfillment

Jonpaul’s services sell themselves. World Class Service performed in an upscale environment will attract clientele. Our prices are very reasonable for the quality of services provided. We have an agreement with a U.S. based importer of our London products, which keeps our product price at its lowest price point.

3.5 Technology

Jonpaul’s will sell complimenting products of the highest quality, and latest scientific development.

Our gentleman’s shop computer system incorporates the latest hardware and software to manage appointments, client database, point of sale, email capabilities, Web-enabled networking, inventory, bar code reading, historical data, employee records, transaction history, accounts receivable/payable and payroll. Back-up of the system is performed daily.

Clients will be emailed appointment confirmation messages two days prior to appointment. In addition, they will also receive a personal phone call one day prior to appointment to confirm appointment. A thank you note will be emailed automatically after services have been performed.

Our gentleman’s shop will incorporate a wireless network within the facilities. It will serve as an internal network and provide a service for our clients that need to access the Internet while visiting our facilities.

3.6 Future Products and Services

Jonpaul’s will consider branding its own product line in the future. In addition, it may offer chiropractic services and acupuncture services on an as needed basis. Jonpaul’s will always remain involved with the best men’s hair styling and health techniques offered, and will implement them if deemed appropriate and feasible for Jonpaul’s clientele.

Market Analysis Summary

Jonpaul’s will focus on the professional male. An Internet study revealed that 85% of professional men had personal hair grooming services performed during the workday. The space at The Mall fits the demographics for our business. Applied Geographic Solutions estimates that 59,251 people live within a three-mile radius of our facility and 42,759 work there. They estimate 161,848 live within a five-mile radius and 109,867 work there. There are 15 business parks totaling 6,206 businesses located within a seven-mile radius.

4.2 Target Market Segment Strategy

The members of these market segments have luxury money on hand, and lead professional lives filled with busy schedules. All persons need hairstyling regardless of income level, and make an effort to find money available to style their “look.”

4.2.1 Market Trends

Despite the massive growth in residential and corporate complexes and substantial employment within 7 miles of The Mall, a gap currently exists in the retail trade and entertainment area. The shopping center is strategically located between two major malls, each occupying more than 1.2 million square feet. Virtually no high-end restaurants or commercial support services existed in the Gigaburb vicinity until The Mall was developed. Our facility will be located in this center, which provides a huge competitive advantage.

A population of nearly 205,000 people, consisting of young, upper-class families with an average household income of $92,247, exists within a seven-mile radius of the center. The immediate area surrounding The Mall has impressive demographics as well, with an average household income of $119,423 within a three-mile radius. The average new house sale price in The Mall area in 1998 was $377,249, up from $227,000 in 1990. Many companies are locating their corporate headquarters in the Gigaburb vicinity, not just administrative offices. Several office buildings and hotels are located within a short drive of our gentleman’s shop.

4.2.2 Market Growth

Our gentleman’s shop’s trade area’s best growth potential is in terms of daytime employment. The total daytime business population in a three-mile radius is 42,759 with the residential population at 59,251. The total daytime business population in a five-mile radius is 109,867 with the residential population at 161,848. The nearby business parks also have ample land for future office development. A predictable source of daytime employment growth is the planned expansion of existing companies.

The Mall is the only shopping and entertainment center site within an 8-mile radius. Jonpaul’s is the only gentleman’s shop exclusively for men at The Mall. The future looks very promising for a thriving business with a continual presence of clients.

4.2.3 Market Needs

The traditional barber shop has been traditionally replaced by unisex salons and spas which focused mainly on women. Professional men are more health and style conscious, especially men who have achieved a modicum level of professional success. They are willing to pay for products and services that are geared specifically toward men. They are looking for an environment that consistently offers quality service, products, and camaraderie. They look for a gathering place where they can openly discuss politics, watch sports or stock market news on TV, read the newspaper, network, get a cup of gourmet coffee, buy an imported cigar, and get a shoe shine.

The surrounding area of The Mall and Country County has become a bastion for the successful, consistently being the fastest-growing areas in our state. This has created a community of wealth, mobility, and growth. State Highway is a major north/south highway that connects the northern suburbs to midtown Gigaburb. The section of State Highway near our site is two lanes in each direction and includes an interchange at Metro Road. In 1998, the State DOT recorded an ADT volume on State Highway of 46,082 vehicles per day, up from the 1997 traffic count of 38,375. This number is expected to continue to increase substantially over the next few years.

4.3 Service Business Analysis

We are part of the retail health and beauty industry which has four major types:

1. Salons: Stores with only hair styling services and products.

2. Day Spas: Stores specializing in body health maintenance through a variety of services and products.

3. Day Spa & Salon: Stores combining the services of the two aforementioned.

4. Health & Beauty Products: Stores selling only merchandise products covering a wide range but not including those sold by salons and spas.

The industry is now starting to realize that the traditional barber shop needs to be added to their list of major types. The European market has catered to men since their first barber shop in 1805. The traditional barber shop in Europe is starting to expand its services to include massage, facials, manicures, and pedicures based on the suggestions of the “progressive gentleman”. High standards of grooming have always been a tradition in Europe. U.S. professionals who travel abroad have experienced these services and are looking for similar services here in the U.S.

4.3.1 Main Competitors

The main competitor is VanAstorBilts located across town. Strengths of VanAstorBilts are its wide array of spa services. The weaknesses of VanAstorBilts are the limited number of services dedicated specifically to male clients, i.e. hair grooming, shaves, shoe shines. VanAstorBilts services and products cater more toward the female professional. We feel the presence of Jonpaul’s is not a direct competitor to VanAstorBilts and vice versa.

Our market advantage is wide open and will give us the opportunity to service a large population base of professional males that is not currently being well-served.

4.3.2 Competition and Buying Patterns

Clients choose men’s grooming services based on proximity to their daily travels from home and work, reputation for high-quality service, and good pricing. With our combined services and catering to the male professional, we don’t feel we have competition. Any competition will mainly be from unisex salons or combination unisex spa-salons.

4.3.3 Business Participants

Industry participants are those whose services include salon and spa offerings. Salon services concern hair styling, while spa services concern body relaxation and rejuvenating offerings such as massage, nail, and face works.

No one industry participant has focused specifically on men only.

5.1 Value Proposition

We will bring a unique mode of relaxation and fulfillment to the discerning gentleman. When people are relaxed, comfortable, and happy, they have the ability to work harder, concentrate better, feel physically, emotionally, and mentally balanced, and give that happiness back into their homes, workplace, and community. Our value proposition is that we help our community become a better place to live and work.

5.2 Competitive Edge

Our competitive edge is a combination of unique services, outstanding location, and interaction with our clients. By providing our clients a gentleman’s club atmosphere and world-class services, we build relationships of trust and satisfaction. Our clients will come to depend on our unique services and fulfilling environment.

5.3 Marketing Strategy

Our marketing strategy is the key to our success:

1. Emphasize our name, unique services, and environment through advertising.

2. Focus on the convenience of our location.

3. Build community and corporate relationships through unique and quality service, a friendly caring atmosphere, and delivering world-class service.

5.3.1 Promotion Strategy

Our promotional strategy will be two-fold: first-phase promotion will advertise before, during, and six months following our opening; the second-phase advertising will deal with long-term advertising.

First Phase Promotions:

– Advertising: We will utilize local newspapers, local social magazines, local radio, and mail-outs to households within a 10-mile radius and local businesses within a five-mile radius.

– Internet: We will have a comprehensive website.

READ MORE  Data Recovery Business Plan Example

– Alliances: We will place our brochure within the offices of our corporate referral clients.

Second Phase Promotions:

– Advertising: We will continue to place ads in local social magazines year-round. Mail-outs will be done again within a 10-mile radius one year after takeoff, then again only every three to five years. Radio and television ads will be done only during sale promotions in the holiday season.

– Internet: We will continue to have a comprehensive website. After the first six months and certainly after the first year, we will evaluate advertising on target client websites.

– Alliances: This type of advertising will be implemented once we have grown beyond our revenue objective.

5.3.2 Marketing Programs

Owner Cathy Leskie and Jonpaul Leskie will be responsible for marketing Jonpaul’s through advertising channels. The general manager will assist with the implementation of alliance advertising partnerships. Our advertising budget is $10,000 for the first year. Advertising will begin two weeks prior to opening.

5.3.3 Positioning Statement

We will automatically position ourselves as the top exclusive gentlemen’s grooming shop in the greater Gigaburb area. Considering that none of the other competitors will offer the range of men’s services that we will, nor will their staff be trained like ours, and that there are no barbershops of our type in our target locations, we will be able to provide services to The Mall populace not currently being tapped.

5.3.4 Pricing Strategy

Our pricing strategy will be similar to that of our competitors. We will not charge substantially over or under standard prices for our services. We will be paying our employees a straight percentage of their total individual client sales plus a bonus – that’s more than our competitors. This will allow us to hire the best employees and have a built-in motivational factor that will keep them empowered to enhance their opportunity.

5.4 Sales Strategy

Our umbrella sales strategy is to sell Jonpaul’s to the male professional as a uniquely desirable destination that will enhance their lives.

We will sell Jonpaul’s through each employee’s skill, courtesy, and warmth, creating a trusting impression on all clients and establishing loyalty and return visits. We will ensure each visit to Jonpaul’s is a relaxing and memorable experience, so that clients can always depend on our brand of service when they arrive.

5.4.1 Sales Programs

– Our comprehensive brochure will explain the nature of our services and how they benefit our clients.

– Our website will be comprehensively informative of our services, environment, and their benefits.

5.4.2 Sales Forecast

Initial sales forecast indicates first-year revenue of $799,000 increasing to $1.0 million by the end of the second year, then $1.4 million by the end of the third year. These figures are based on revenue from minimum average estimates from barber shop hair styles and additional services, with sales costs reflective of the 45% commission earnings to each barber/therapist.

Management Summary:

The management philosophy of Jonpaul’s is based on respect for each employee and client and individual responsibility. Jonpaul’s success depends on the warmth and uniqueness of its atmosphere, which is created by fun-loving and caring employees. The management team consists of the owners and an assistant manager if necessary. We only hire those who demonstrate the necessary qualities for working in a professional environment and a willingness to continue their education. We hire exceptional individuals to provide world-class service.

6.1 Organizational Structure:

Our initial team includes the owner and 10 employees. On the shop floor, we will have six barbers, one nail specialist, one shoe shine person, and one receptionist. Initially, there will be one full-time combination aesthetician/massage therapist. As our client base grows, we will add additional barbers who will work two shifts per day per station. We expect to have 12 employees by the end of the first year and 14 employees in years two and three.

6.2 Management Team:

Cathy Leskie, co-owner and president, has 10 years of experience in the hair and spa industry. She has studied in the U.S. and Europe and stays up to date on the latest styles, trends, and products.

6.3 Management Team Gaps:

7.3 Break-even Analysis

Our Break-even Analysis assumes monthly operational costs, including payroll, rent, utilities, and other expenses (excluding employee draw fund considerations). Payroll alone is estimated at $9,800 per month, including taxes.

The analysis indicates the monthly revenue needed to break even, as shown below. This amount is lower than the estimated monthly gross and does not factor in revenue from other sources. The average client charge for a barber shop is $35, and for miscellaneous services, it is $50. Our yearly average charge per client is estimated at $48. With a monthly average of 1,063 clients based on our conservative assumptions, we are confident in maintaining our break-even point.
