What Is a Beauty Salon or Beauty Bar Business Plan?
A business plan provides a snapshot of your salon as it stands today, and lays out your growth plan for the next five years. It explains your business’s goals, business model, target market, and a marketing plan for the many ways you can reach new and existing clients. It also includes market research to support your plans.
Why Do You Need a Business Plan?
If you’re looking to start a beauty bar or salon or grow your existing business, you need a business plan. A business plan will help you raise funding, if needed, and plan out the growth of your new salon in order to improve your chances of success. Your business plan is a living document that should be updated annually as your company grows and changes.
What Are the Sources of Funding for a Beauty Salon?
With regards to funding, the main sources of funding for a new beauty salon are bank loans and angel investors. With regards to bank loans, banks will want to review your business plan and gain confidence that you will be able to repay your loan and interest. To acquire this confidence, the loan officer will not only want to confirm that your financials are reasonable. But they will want to see a professional plan. Such a plan will give them the confidence that you can successfully and professionally operate a beauty salon business.
The second most common form of funding for a beauty salon is angel investors. Angel investors are wealthy individuals who will write you a check. They will either take equity in return for their funding, or, like a bank, they will give you a loan. Venture capitalists will not fund a beauty salon. They might consider funding a chain of beauty salons, but never an individual location such as a local business district. This is because most venture capitalists are looking for millions of dollars in return when they make an investment, and an individual location could never achieve such results.
