Phenix Salon Suites, the nation’s leading salon suite franchise, is continuing to prosper alongside its largest franchise operator, Kevin Davis.
Kevin, who first joined the brand in 2012 as its second franchisee, has 51 open locations across New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, Washington D.C. and California.
After opening eight locations in Q3 of 2022, Kevin is also on track to open five more before the end of Q4 in 2022. He has 22 additional locations currently in development throughout New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, Washington D.C. and California.
Kevin started his career in franchising in the restaurant industry and transitioned to salon suites when he was burnt out from the day-to-day operations of restaurant ownership and in search of a semi-absentee ownership model.
In addition to owning and operating his own locations, Kevin has been instrumental in building the Phenix brand and helped spearhead the development of 11 locations that are now owned by other franchisees.
“After first investing in Phenix in 2012, it immediately became evident that this model was strong,” said Kevin. “There was clear interest from lifestyle professionals looking to rent the independent suites, as well as from customers who were in need of their services, and as an investor, the profits were there almost instantly.
“The real selling point of the Phenix model is its scalability – I have 51 locations open across the country and the day-to-day work for me is minimal, which is why I’ve been able to continuously grow in multiple states.”
Solidifying its reputation as one of the fastest-growing franchises, the brand is exceeding growth expectations already in 2022 with a goal to sign more than 25 additional franchise agreements before the end of the year.
“After more than a decade in business, it is franchisees like Kevin who help Phenix thrive,” said Gina Rivera, founder of Phenix Salon Suites. “As a franchisee who joined our business early on, he has been an integral part of our growth as we’ve worked to scale Phenix both nationally and internationally.
“He is a prime example of a franchisee who understands the mission of our family-oriented brand that offers lifestyle professionals the chance to own their own business, combined with a recurring opportunity for expansion that will truly bolster a portfolio. Now, in the strongest position we’ve ever been in as a brand, we’re eager to see Kevin continue to scale with us and benefit from the Phenix model.”
