What does it mean to be an official ? BFA Member entail?
Guinot is a pioneering skincare brand that has been established for more than 50 years. Known for its non-invasive treatments for face and body, Guinot is continuously investing in research and development to remain at the forefront of the industry. The company’s treatments and products can be found in over 10,000 salons in 70 countries around the globe.
For Guinot, a salon is a professional beauty care establishment in which women can achieve their beauty aims with advice from their beauty therapist.
Guinot has a network of more than 150 franchises. The model is well established in France and its success has led the company to launch its franchise opportunity in the
UK and Ireland.
This company offers two franchise options: converting an existing beauty salon to a Guinot franchise operation or opening a new salon using the brand’s tried-and-tested
systems of operation.
For an existing salon looking to convert to a Guinot franchise, the start-up costs can be as low as £35,000. And the potential return on this investment can be impressive:
established salons in France that converted to a Guinot franchise experienced an average increase in turnover of 20 per cent.
Opening a new Guinot salon typically costs between £90,000-£130,000, which includes the franchise fee, plus all setup costs and operating expenses.
Franchising with Guinot allows anyone with a passion for the health and beauty business to manage their own high street beauty salon, with the guidance and support of an established brand.
Franchisees are responsible for managing the business on a day-to-day basis; promoting the business within their local community; the recruitment, motivation and management of their team; and monitoring individual therapist performance and salon business performance indicators.
In addition, team meetings, stock control and hosting customer-led events are essential parts of running the business.
How much does a Guinot franchise cost?
The cost of a new salon is between £90,000-£130,000. The cost for an existing salon owner to convert their business to a Guinot franchise is from £32,000.
