We were once asked how we can guarantee our services vs a franchisor's. There are few absolutes in business, but we offer three guarantees to our clients, and we extend them to all operators in the salons suites industry:
1. Royalties - SCG guarantees that we do not charge on-going royalty fees that can amount to millions of dollars over the life of franchise agreements. We're there to support our clients down the road (we're a call, click or text away), but they generally won't need us once they are set up and running. (Why pay thousands per month for that support through royalty fees?)
2. Competition - You may currently live in an area where there is little or no suites competition, but we guarantee it's coming. Multiple franchisors and independents WILL likely pop up soon in your area, and it's difficult to compete when burdened by huge franchise royalty payments right off the top. All other things being equal, independents will always have the advantage in a competitive market.
3. Franchise profits - Since franchisees have on-going royalty obligations of 5%-7% of the gross revenues, we guarantee that the franchisor makes money even if the franchisee doesn't. (Remember: Salon suites franchises are a GREAT model for the franchisor, not so much for the franchisee.)
