Sola Salon Studios, the world’s largest and fastest growing salon studios franchise, announced the signing of a multi-unit franchise agreement with distinguished foodservice operator and franchising industry veteran, Mitch Cohen. As part of the agreement, Cohen, along with business partners Marvin Goldfarb, Al Goldstein and Seth Goldstein of SAMM Property MGMT, will develop six units over the next five years across Nassau and Queens counties in New York, with the first projected to open before the end of this year.
Mitch Cohen is the newest foodservice franchisee to diversify with Sola, joining 15 other franchisee groups that also currently operate leading restaurant brands such as Panera Bread, Tim Hortons, McDonald’s, Taco Bell, Pizza Hut and more. As a longstanding pillar in the franchising community, Mitch Cohen has more than 37 years of experience operating foodservice concepts.
“The trend of restaurant operators investing in Sola is a relatively recent development within our brand and has been completely organic. We’ve found that restaurant operators are attracted to the simplicity of Sola’s model when compared to the complexities of today’s foodservice landscape,” said Christina Russell, CEO of Sola Salon Studios. “When you consider factors like the ease of Sola’s day-to-day operations, turnkey real estate model and low labor cost, it’s a no-brainer.”
Sola Salon Studios currently has more than 500 locations open in the US, Canada and Brazil. To learn more about franchise opportunities, please visit www.solafranchising.com.
