Blo Blow Dry Bar has announced the signing of a three-unit franchise agreement in the Phoenix-area. The new agreement will be led by Amy Norris, a Phoenix native.
“This partnership will introduce a new community to our catwalk-quality blow outs,” said Vanessa Yakobson, CEO of Blo Blow Dry Bar.
“We have seen tremendous growth within the last year – proven by our successful business model, strong culture and exceptional franchisees. We are consistently looking for more great franchisees like Amy, and look forward to what 2022 brings for the brand.”
Norris spent over 20 years as a bank district manager, and started a non-profit with her husband, RaeRae of Light, in memory of their daughter, Reagan, who suffered a congenital heart defect. The non-profit raises awareness on the condition and support for Phoenix Children’s Hospital.
Norris frequently has blow outs, and wanted to bring the concept closer to home and therefore signed with Blo Blow Dry Bar. She is in the process of securing the location for her first bar, which is expected to be situated in the Northwest Valley area, and hopes to open by the end of 2022.
“One aspect I am so excited about is that I truly enjoy and believe in this concept,” said Norris.
“I shared an instant connection to Blo Blow Dry Bar and their team so I knew I wanted to join the Blo family. I’ve seen firsthand how much women enjoy getting blow outs, but my bars will also bring growth to the Phoenix market and employment opportunities for its community members. I can’t imagine a more perfect fit.”
“Arizona is one of our target markets with five areas currently available for development,” said Patrick Pantano, vice president, franchise development, Blo Blow Dry Bar.
“Amy’s knowledge of the Phoenix area and passion for the business makes her a great fit to help fuel expansion in the area, and we are excited to see all of her success.”
