Okay, It Is Time...

I just realized after writing the post on Dryver's first haircut and looking at this picture from earlier today that Stryde really does need to go get his haircut. We found that there is a place called Cartoon Cuts. It is great for kids and if you want a low stress experience, this is the place to go.

The great thing about Cartoon Cuts is they combine games and tv with the haircut experience. I will tell you that Dryver, who hates to get his haircut, said today that he wanted to go to Cartoon Cuts to get a trim. They offer video games, art table, kids' favorite videos and a TV at each hair station.

This is a franchise and is currently only in Texas, Virgina, and Maryland. It seems like a great franchise opportunity, though I am not clear on the upside of the franchise over creating a kids oriented salon in the mall. The brand is not well known yet, but it will get there.

In case you are interested the cost is not bad for a franchise. Depending on the structure of the real estate deals, investment options may start as low as $100,000 for a complete, turnkey, single store location.

Anyway, we are headed tomorrow to get both Dryver and Stryde's hair cut, and will be helping the owner of the shop in Tyson's Corner to pay-off the 100K they invested.
