New-to-market salon concept coming to Rookwood Exchange


Read the full article here.

A new-to-market concept that allows beauty workers to rent individual salon spaces will begin construction at the Rookwood Exchange this year and is expected to open next spring.

Greg and Sharon Myers are opening a Salons by JC in 7,000 square feet at the Rookwood Exchange in Norwood. Construction is set to begin Dec. 1.

Salons by JC provides individual suites that hairstylists, nail technicians, aestheticians and massage therapists can rent out to run their own businesses rather than working for commission at a large salon. Other local businesses, like Salon Lofts, provide a similar concept, but Salons by JC has a twist.

“What’s differentiated for Salons by JC is the concierge we provide . If you look at our competitors in Cincinnati, there’s no employee on site, so when an issue comes up, there’s no one for them to talk to,” Greg Myers told me. “Our employee allows contractors to handle walk-ins. If someone was to walk in to a competitor, there’s no one to receive them or guide them to one of the 20 independent contractors.”
Commission rates at salons can range from 35 percent to 60 percent, according to Forbes. At Salons by JC, contractors pay rent and keep all of the fees they charge. Myers provides the hair washing sinks, power, water, concierge, storage area and cleaning services to the salon. Anymore, people care more about the person cutting their hair than the name on the salon, so it provides an opportunity for stylists to strike out on their own, he said.

“When they find someone they’re happy with, they’re loyal to that person, not the salon,” Myers said. “My wife, she’ll follow her hair stylist from salon to salon.”
Myers was previously general manager at an aerospace and defense business, but that got tough during the Great Recession, so he was looking for something that was more uplifting, he said, and didn’t want to be in charge of many employees. That’s when he came across the Salons by JC concept.
Myers hopes to be open for business by April 1, 2016. Construction will begin Dec. 1.
Salons by JC is headquartered in San Antonio, Texas. The Cincinnati location will be the first in Ohio.

Mixed-Use Property Sells for $5M; New Salon Planned

View the full article at the Triad Business Journal. 

Glen Rock, N.J.-based The Bedrin Org. this week purchased St. George Square in Winston-Salem for $5.11 million and plans to build the Triad’s second Salons by JC there.

The mixed-use property, built in 2008 and located off Hanes Mall Boulevard, includes two buildings that total nearly 41,000 square feet, as well as two pad sites, where The Bedrin Org. expects additional development.

The site was sold by 620 St. George Square Ct. LLC, an entity managed by Stabilis Fund I LP, a New York-based private equity fund. Bedrin said an affiliate of Channel Real Estate Funds provided half of the equity, with the Bedrin family putting in the balance. CBRE represented the seller in the transaction.

The Bedrin Org. owns a half-dozen properties throughout Greensboro and High Point. St. George Square marks its first Winston-Salem acquisition, according to Garret Bedrin, head of acquisitions and leasing. At closing, the property was 70 percent leased.
Salons by JC, a multitenant beauty salon concept, will be built in about 6,700 square feet of shell space on the second floor of one of the buildings, with construction to begin in September and opening expected in early January. That brings occupancy to 87 percent.
Bedrin said the salon is expected to cost about $800,000. A contractor has not yet been selected.
It is the second Triad location for Garret and Mike Bedrin, the franchisees. They opened a Greensboro location in Caldwell Court shopping center, also owned by The Bedrin Org., earlier this year. That salon is configured into 19 mini-suites that are leased to independent beauty operators. It is now 100 percent leased.

The new salon will have 33 mini-suites, Bedrin said.
Other tenants include Regus, a provider of temporary furnished office suites, in more than 10,000 square feet; Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices in 3,400 square feet; Hakka Chow, an Asian fusion restaurant, in about 5,000 square feet; and Strands Salon & Spa in about 2,000 square feet.
The one-story building also on the property is leased by Tropical Smoothie Cafe, Nothing Bundt Cakes, State Farm Insurance and The Basil Leaf restaurant.
The site has three vacant units — with 1,360, 1,370 and 2,879 square feet — and Charlie Fulk at Meridian Realty in Winston-Salem will handle that leasing. Meridian will manage the property.

“We are aggressively looking to fill up the remaining spaces, including more food, a small private fitness studio like Pure Barre or Orange Theory, or a social-based experience provider like a ‘Paint and Sip,’ wine tasting, ice cream parlor,” Bedrin said.
He hopes to develop the two remaining land pieces for service-oriented retail or medical, perhaps an urgent care or similar facility.
“We think St. George can be a one-stop development to allow someone to rent an office, visit the salon, work out, eat lunch and have a glass of wine with their friends all in a safe, well-located and beautiful environment,” Bedrin said.

Salons by JC Grand Opening Strategy

Salons by JC Franchisee Brent Koughan opened his new location in 2015 and discusses how Bluewater played a strategic role in developing his grand-opening strategy. Watch this video to learn more about the strategies he used when launching his Salons by JC Grand-Opening.

Advice from a Salons by JC Franchisee

  • Have a strong grand opening. You want to generate as much hype as possible early on so that you can fill your suites quickly.
  • Define your goals. Make sure you have a clear understanding of what results you want to achieve from your marketing campaign. Brent’s goal was to get as many people in the door as possible.
  • Figure out your marketing demographics. Who are you trying to target? What sort of salon rental tenants do you want to have? These are important questions you’ll need to answer before you start advertising or promoting yourself online.
  • Figure out your tenant’s clientele. Again, this is important for understanding what sort of tenants you’re targeting.
  • Create a marketing plan that starts 90 days before the grand-opening to two weeks after opening.
  • Consider creating a marketing campaign that includes print collateral, broadcasting on social media, online advertising, and blogging on your website.

Salons by JC Opens in Caldwell Court

Read the full story at the Triad Business Journal. 

Salons by JC, a multitenant beauty salon concept, is holding a ribbon-cutting ceremony today to celebrate its opening in the Caldwell Court shopping center in Greensboro.
The 4,200-square-foot Salons by JC property, located at 2729 Battleground Ave., is configured into 19 mini-suites leased to independent beauty operators. The average size is 10 feet by 10 feet and leases for about $235 a week, according to Garret Bedrin, head of acquisitions and leasing for Glen Rock, N.J.-based The Bedrin Org., which owns Caldwell Court.
Salons by JC will feature 19 individual health and wellness areas, such as a nail or hair salon, under one roof. Here, a model at the Caldwell Court shopping center shows how a small-scale individual operation could be arranged.

Garret and Mike Bedrin, the franchisees, have plans of opening four salons in the Triad. Those plans call for the Bedrins to secure about 24,000 square feet of additional retail space.

Garret Bedrin told the Triad Business Journal last year The Bedrin Org. planned to invest between $550,000 and $750,000 to open Salons by JC, which included a $250,000 exterior renovation by Greensboro-based D.H. Griffin Cos. and an interior upfit ranging in cost from $300,000 to $500,000.
Bedrin said today about $750,000 was invested. Salons by JC opened in January and is celebrating that opening today with a ribbon cutting. The Greensboro Chamber of Commerce will be there at 4 p.m. to kick off the festivities, which include music, giveaways and drinks and food.
Upon opening, Salons at JC had 12 of its 19 suites leased. It now remains about 90 percent leased with two or three opportunities for new tenants, Bedrin said.

“We have experienced a huge amount of interest and support and are thrilled to welcome the community into our gorgeous salon to see how creative and innovative some of our professionals are,” Bedrin said.
The concept, which was first pioneered in Texas, brings several individual health and wellness businesses under one roof, with tenants including hairstylists, aestheticists, nail and massage studios. Salons by JC was founded in 1998 by retail executives Jack Griffey and Cecil Miller. There are now 50 locations under lease or construction across the country.
