Business Description: The franchisor is Amazing Lash Studio Franchise, LLC. The franchisor sells franchises for the establishment and operation of retail salon businesses specializing in luxury semi-permanent and temporary eyelash extensions and related products and services.
Franchise Offer: The franchise offered is for a retail salon business utilizing the “Amazing Lash Studio” concept and the franchisor’s business operating system to provide luxury semi-permanent and temporary eyelash extensions and related products and services.
Financial Assistance: The franchisor does not offer direct or indirect financing, and it does not guarantee franchisees’ notes, leases or other obligations.
Training and Assistance: At least 3 months before the opening of the Amazing Lash Studio business, the franchisee’s Principal Owner and General Manager (if different from the Principal Owner) must have attended and completed the initial management training program to the franchisor’s satisfaction. The training program will be conducted at the franchisor’s offices in Scottsdale, Arizona. The franchisor may require the Principal Owner, General Manager and assistant managers to attend additional training programs and seminars from time to time.
Territory: The Franchise Agreement gives franchisees the right to operate an Amazing Lash Studio business at a site the franchisor accepts as meeting its site selection guidelines. If franchisees remain in compliance with the Franchise Agreement and any other agreement franchisees have with the franchisor or its affiliates, the franchisor and its affiliates will not establish or authorize anyone except franchisees to establish an Amazing Lash Studio business in the geographic area identified as the “Protected Area” in the Franchise Agreement during the term of the Franchise Agreement. The Protected Area will be (a) a circular geographic area having a radius of at least 1.5 miles and its center at the front door of the Amazing Lash Studio business, or (b) an irregularly shaped geographic area which includes the Amazing Lash Studio business and extends out from the front door of the Amazing Lash Studio business at least 1.5 miles in all directions. The franchisor determines the boundaries of each Protected Area on a case-by-case basis.
Term of Agreement and Renewal: The length of the initial franchise term is 10 years. One additional 10-year term is available, if requirements are met.
Obligations and Restrictions: When franchisees sign the Franchise Agreement, they must designate an individual to serve as the “Principal Owner.” The Principal Owner must be an individual holding an ownership interest in the franchise, or, if franchisees are an individual they will be the Principal Owner. The Principal Owner must meet the franchisor’s qualifications and must be approved by the franchisor. The same person must act as the Principal Owner under the Franchise Agreements for all Amazing Lash Studio businesses operated by franchisees and, if applicable, their affiliates. All products franchisees use or sell at the Amazing Lash Studio business must conform to the franchisor’s standards and specifications. Franchisees must not deviate from the franchisor’s standards and specifications unless the franchisor first gives franchisees written consent. Franchisees must also comply with all applicable laws and regulations and secure all appropriate governmental approvals for the Amazing Lash Studio business.
