John comments: 'Rush franchising model is even more successful than I could have hoped. Without a doubt, the three key ingredients are the brand, the franchisee and the location. The brand is now winning awards; the company has selected the highest quality people and has found the right locations.
'The good news for potential franchisees is that Rush has people who can help them select the right site for their salon, and who can negotiate with landlords, lawyers, bank managers and accountants. Education is also crucial, which means training the stylists as well as the business managers. With a three-floor academy in Croydon and plans for other regional centres, franchisees can rest assured that all of their education needs are taken care. This makes their journey into salon ownership as smooth and easy as possible.'
Rush began franchising its successful business model in 2007 after over 14 years in the hairdressing industry. Franchising specialists at law firm Rawlison Butler LLP helped Rush start franchising, from providing ongoing advice on the franchise agreement, commercial, employment and property documentation.
