Snip-Its Franchise Information
Snip-Its is a franchise for a business providing hair-cuts for children. It was founded in 1995 and started franchising in 2003. It was created by Joanna Meiseles when she was looking for a salon that is for children.
To her dismay, most would refuse to attend to a child who moves a lot. If not that, the salon is not clean enough for a child or they don’t have anything different to help entertain the child. This was when she decided to put a business that answers to all these needs. She wanted to create a good experience for the children and parents alike, a place where children would be entertained and enjoy the haircut and the parent not having to be frustrated with crying children.
She also formulated a hair care line that is all natural and especially designed for kids. It took her two years to research, plan, and develop the location that was first opened in Framingham, Massachusetts. Meiseles is has a background in entertainment being a daughter to a producer and a granddaughter to Jack Benny. She realized the use of her entertainment background to make her concept work. She believed that an entertained child is the key to getting them through a haircut session. They now have 65 locations in the United States and one location that is company owned.
