We are pleased to announce the appointment of Guinot’s new Franchise Manager for the UK and Ireland, Nigel Dawson. He comes to R Robson Limited with extensive experience in franchise development, working for the past eight years with Boots and Dollond & Aitchison Opticians. He brings his wealth of knowledge in developing franchise business plans and financial models, as well as his expertise in managing the performance of the franchise businesses. Prior to this he spent nine years as Managing Director of a distribution company.

Based on the success of Guinot’s pilot salon in Ascot and the affiliate programme in France, Nigel plans to launch the franchise project in the UK this year. Nigel and his team intend to open approximately 150 Guinot franchise salons throughout the UK and Ireland over the next 10 years. The official launch of the franchise scheme will be at the National Franchise Exhibition at the NEC, Birmingham on the 5 and 6 October.

However, Guinot is already welcoming enquiries in regards to the new franchise model. The 5-year franchise agreement will allow franchisees to renew on a five year basis and the investment required will be approximately £20,000. The franchise scheme will welcome applications from existing salons wanting to rebrand, as well as individuals aspiring to open new salons.
