Located in Omaha, this salon is listed for an incredible price and is run by a booth rental model. Completely outfitted for 9 stylists; currently at 7 filled spots, spaces rent for $175/week with the seller willing to stay on and rent for a new owner. The salon has been in operation for over 40 years and has been in its current location for over 6 years. This is the perfect opportunity for an owner to become passive after filling all stations.


Ideally situated in a high traffic strip mall, the salon occupies 1,396 sq. ft. and is leased for $2,339 per month. The monthly rent also includes common area maintenance, with the salon in a coveted endcap spot.


Open from Tuesday through Saturday, the stylists are consistently booked out for over one month at any given time. As they have roughly 1,500 clients between them, walk-ins are hard to accommodate. A buyer would be able to seat more clients by fully renting.


Growth also exists in adding manicures and pedicures. A buyer could convert the salon to a commission or salary model to entice younger stylists or share product sales with stylists to encourage more retail revenue.


For only 25% down, a buyer would have a stylish, well-kept salon that is a great passive investment.

Pro Forma by Number of Renters

Rent of $175/week:

Below is a pro forma based on the number of renters paying $175/week for booth rental. Please note that this does not include any product sales.

Renters Weekly Monthly Yearly
3 $525 $2,100 $25,200
6 $1,050 $4,200 $50,400
9 $1,575 $6,300 $75,600

Insurance $240 $2,880
Telephone/Internet $275 $3,300
Utilities $307 $3,684
Supplies $475 $5,700
$3,636 $43,632


At full capacity, weekly rent of $175 from 9 stylists would equate to yearly income of $75,600. Taking into account yearly expenses of $43,632, an owner would be left with a profit of $31,968.

Based on the above information, the best case scenario for booth rental would be to fully rent all 9 stations at $175/week. To increase profit, rents could be raised to $190/week. This would bring in $82,080 per year, leaving a profit of $38,448.
