Rent a booth or a suite?
Salon professionals debating their next career move are often presented with a choice: is booth rental or suite rental right for me? Before conducting a deeper dive, let’s start with a simple explanation of the two options:
A Booth rental is a small space being rented out by the salon owner. You have to work around others at the same salon and also abide by an agreement, usually in regards to customers and what you offer. A Suite rental is full control of an area designated to be a salon. You are in full control of the space and have more flexibility.
The Pros and Cons
Whether renting a Booth or a Suite, your schedule is up to you. Create a work schedule that is right for your lifestyle and family.
The added benefit of Suite rental is the freedom of time! With Booth rental, most of the time you are sharing an area with others and you have to work around their hours as well as your own. With Suite rental options like Salon Concepts, you have 24/7 access based on your desired schedule.
Branding and Marketing
Booth renters are able to brand themselves rather than falling under the salon’s aesthetic or brand. Suite renters own their brand, as well, with the added bonus of marketing support from the “landlord.” At Salon Concepts we invest in an extensive online marketing campaign to help drive business to your suite. We call it Build My Book because that’s the end benefit, growth in the Suite renter’s book of business.
Don’t take our word for it:
“Building my business has been a breeze thanks to Build My Book! I started with 45 clients and now have over 300 loyal clients! My clients appreciate me and I’m making more money than ever!”
– Jazmine Rogers, Salon Concepts Richfield
The Freedom to be Creative
Suite renters have a leg up on their Booth renting colleagues when it comes to creativity. When you secure personal space at Salon Concepts, you create the customer experience. The space is all yours. With Booth rental, the salon owner is in control of the customer experience once they walk in the door.
The Decision is Yours
Booth rental is a viable option for salon professionals seeking a change from the traditional commission salon structure.
If you’re ready to be your own boss, set your own schedule, and create the customer experience that defines your brand, you’re ready for the suite life!
