My good buddy Shane Jones is getting close to opening his business Big Chair Salon & Spa Suites.
Big Chair (He stole that name from me.) is an almost tech solution to a small business problem.
Opportunity: Every hair stylist, massage therapists on earth wants to own their own salon.
Problem: Salons and spas don't make money (6% margins nationwide) and have high startup costs.
Solution: Big Chair builds out individual 'suites' that they lease by the week, providing exactly what the market wants. Every stylist can now own their own salon and run it however they wish.
Shane's a smart guy and knows this market. The beauty of this business is that he'll have 'no employees', it's just a simple lease agreement that gives the tenants what they want and prevents all the headaches.
