When Sola Salon Studios opened its first location in Denver, CO in 2004, the mission and goal was to provide beauty professionals high-end, move-in ready studios where they could experience the freedom and benefits of being in business for themselves as salon owners. Now, almost 15 years later, Sola Salon Studios announces a new milestone with the opening of their 450th location, in Leawood, KS.
This Kansas location (Town Center Plaza, 5065 W. 117th St., Leawood, Kansas) represents the 450th overall Sola location, the 447th in the United States, and is the 7th location owned by the same franchise group. Sola Salon Studios currently has over 12,000 entrepreneurial beauty professionals within these 450 locations as part of their ever-growing, talented community.
“We are thrilled to reach this exciting new milestone. Sola was created by entrepreneurs who wanted to support entrepreneurs and we continue to celebrate the successes and milestones of each and every location and sole proprietor. We look forward to opening additional locations across the United States and worldwide, and are committed to supporting our growing community with the best-in-class programs and resources to support their businesses,” commented Jennie Wolff, VP Marketing and Education, Sola Salon Studios.
Sola Salon Studios not only provides customizable studios but also provides support programs, technology and education that simplifies the entrepreneurial process and supports independent business owners. Sola-exclusive benefits include live education and inspiration at Sola Sessions events across the country, digital education programs, business and marketing support and access to SolaGenius and SolaPro – cutting-edge apps designed to help Sola owners maximize their salon business.
"Our newest location resides in an upscale shopping district in Leawood, Kansas and will be home to 36 independent salon owners and we couldn't be happier to share in their dreams of small business ownership! A stylist was showing her studio to her child yesterday and the child asked 'Where is your boss Mommy?' and the stylist replied 'I am the BOSS here!' They were so excited, it just warmed my heart!” commented Dana Schumacher of Sola Salon Studios Kansas.
