Frequently Asked Questions
What is franchising exactly?
Franchising is a way of doing business and generally involves using another person's business model. Owning a
franchise usually allows you to use and/or distribute the products, techniques, and trademarks of the franchisor,
for a royalty fee. The franchisor usually offers support services, such as training, national or international
advertising, marketing tools and other services.
Why should I choose a Just Cuts franchise?

I know nothing about hairdressing or running my own business; can I still buy a Just Cuts franchise?
Yes, you simply need to be able to work well with people and have the drive to run your own business. We provide all
the training and tools that you will need to be successful.
Are franchised businesses more successful?
Generally experts agree that franchised businesses have a better chance of success compared to independent small
businesses. They put this down to a variety of factors including:
- The vested interest that the franchisor has for the franchisee to succeed
- The proven business model which has been tried and tested by franchisee's
- Support from the franchisor (often a head office)
- The established brand and customers who are loyal to the brand

How much does it cost?
The cost of a franchise can vary between $160,000 and $250,000 and is dependent on the site chosen for the salon.
How long is the franchise agreement?
The franchise agreement is for a term of 5 years, or the term of your lease.
What payments are made to the Franchisor?
The franchise support fee is a fixed weekly fee that equals 12 haircuts based on the core price of a haircut. As well
as this, you will be required to support the National Marketing fund by payment of 5 haircuts per week. Regardless of
the number of haircuts you do each week, the fee remains the same.
Can I sell my business?
Each business is independently owned and operated, and as such you are free to sell your business. The purchaser must
be a person that is approved by Just Cuts Franchising and they will need to successfully complete the standard
application and interview process.
Would I be required to work in the salon?
You don't necessarily need to work hands on in the salon. Depending on your experience and areas of expertise, you
may choose to do so. The majority of Just Cuts owners take responsibility for the management and administration of
the business and we assist you to recruit suitable team leaders to manage the operational areas of the salons.
How long does it take to open a salon if I decide to become a franchisee?
Depending on the site available, salon design and construction, lease negotiations and legal processes, it will
generally take approximately 12-16 weeks.
