Who We are

Our Mission

Salons by JC is committed to providing the premier salon experience for salon professionals to take control of their careers through salon ownership with excellent locations, client care, business support, education, community, and empowerment to enhance their lifestyle.

About Us

Realizing the Dream of a Better Salon Experience

Salons by JC was founded in 1997 by Jack Griffey & Cecil Miller. Jack’s wife, Elke, who worked as a hairstylist, went to work one day and the salon was shut down without notice. While Elke was looking for another job, Jack and Cecil took the concept where you lease individual suites to multiple salons and beauty industry professionals, and so, Salons by JC was born.

Jack and Cecil opened the first SBJC location in Dallas, Texas, with a commitment to ongoing premium service via a full-time Concierge and empowering salon owners to start their businesses. Although Jack is now semi-retired, and Cecil passed away in 2020, we continue the family-owned legacy with a new generation of leadership from Jack’s Son, Steve Griffey who is President, and Cecil’s son, Austin Miller who is VP of Corporate Operations.  Today SBJC has over 150 locations nationwide and serves 4,000+ salon owners and continues to grow everyday!

Our Core Values

Salons by JC was born with a commitment to ongoing premium service via a full-time Concierge Manager, empowering salon owners to start their own businesses and the promise of a family-owned & operated investment opportunity to our franchisees.
