Cherry Blow Dry Bar is an expanding franchise that provides premium express services including blowouts, hair extensions, makeup services and treatments for a perfectly finished look, all at affordable prices through a unique membership model.

Cherry Blow Dry Bar Franchise Background

Management Team

Cherry launched in 2013 under previous ownership focused solely on blowouts at affordable prices. Two short years later, the franchise was taken over by the Vicario brothers who saw great potential in Cherry Blow Dry Bar, realizing that with their experience in franchising and expertise in membership models, they could create a unique model within the niche category. The concept has proven strong, and Cherry Blow Dry Bar is continuing to expand throughout the country.

FDD Disclaimer: “During our most recent fiscal year ending March 31, 2016, we had 3 franchised outlets and 1 company-owned outlet that had been in operation for a full year. This financial performance representation is a historic representation based on the past performance of the company-owned Cherry Hill location. The Cherry Hill location is the only Cherry Blow Dry to use a membership model, as opposed to a fee for service model, for a full twelve-month period. All other outlets in operation during our last fiscal year either did not adopt the membership model, as it was not part of the system under our Predecessor, or had not operated under the membership model for a full year. The franchise offered by this Disclosure Document will operate under the membership model only.”
