Owners Tom and Kim Salaba are proud to open the newest Salons by JC franchise location in Bolingbrook, Illinois – just 40 minutes outside of Chicago. The newest salon suite rental location has private space for up to 35 stylists, with 30 percent of rooms already being pre-leased by various hair stylists, nail technicians, and estheticians. Both Tom and Kim Salaba were recently interviewed by the Chicago Tribune on their experience with Salons by JC, as well as how they hope to provide a different salon suite rental concept for many beauty professionals.
Salons by JC in the Bolingbrook Promenade Mall is set to open on April 6, 2015. The new luxury salon suites will allow Hair Stylists, Nail Technicians, Barbers, Estheticians, Make-Up Artists and other beauty and wellness professionals to set up their individual business inside the salon and provide their services to clients. They will operate their own business from one of thirty-five private suites available. Owners Tom and Kim Salaba have been working on this project for the last eighteen months and are excited to open.
Kim said “we have had an overwhelming response from the beauty and wellness community.” The interest from stylists has allowed Salons by JC, Bolingbrook to lease about thirty percent of the available suites during pre-open leasing. Kim also noted that “we believe that the concept of individual suites is filling a significant need in the Bolingbrook, Joliet, Romeoville, Woodridge and Downers Grove communities.”
The salon suites are fully furnished for hair stylists and are customizable to individual tastes. Access is allowed 24/7 via a secure, electronic system and Salons by JC offers a concierge on staff to make sure everything runs smoothly. Free WiFi, on-site laundry, marketing assistance and all utilities are included in the weekly rent.
“It’s an opportunity for stylists to own and operate their own business inside the Salons by JC operation without the troubles and risk of setting up a traditional salon” Tom said. “Many of the beauty professionals are ready to do their own thing and realize 100% of the business profit while working in a facility with a great vibe.” Tom also said “we have met a lot of great people that are ready for the next step in their career by operating their own business.”
Salons by JC, Bolingbrook will be the first of many opening throughout the Chicago area. For more information you can visit Salons by JC – Bolingbrook or call Tom at 773.504.2217.
