Seven External Factors of the Franchise Evaluator™
Scoring Scale: 1 = Lowest 10 = Highest
Waxxpot serves a fairly broad market with personal waxing services for both men and women. 40% of Waxxpot customers are new to waxing so growth potential is meaningful
Waxxpot serves a relatively well served but still growing segment of the personal care/personal services space occupied by both franchised and independent salons.
Product and Service Drivers
Waxxpot products and services are similar in nature to salon services where a licensed or trained professional expertly complete the procedures. Most people can use these services. Waxxpot also performs tinting (for brows and lashes) as well as lash lifting services making it a one stop shop for selfcare services
Real Estate Needs
Waxxpot salons are location based and prime locations are needed. The location must be built to specifications and guidelines provided by the franchisor and must meet all local building codes.
Waxxpot is a differentiated brand in the waxing and personal services category and competes with both franchised and independent waxing services enterprises. The significant number of "new to waxing" customers means the market segment is still growing.
Waxxpot operates in a regulated category and locations and technicians must meet health and safety requirements at the state and local level that vary from state to state.
Waxxpot is a fairly new concept and is categorized as an emerging brant. The brand name and logo may not be as recognizable outside current trade areas.
Seven Internal Factors of the Franchise Evaluator™
Scoring Scale: 1 = Lowest 10 = Highest
Simple model with good margins. Not alot of investment in inventory so shrinkage does not become a factor. There are multiple income streams including a subscription/membership model
The franchisee role is to manage and grow the business, not perform the service. There is typically a store manager that would manage the team. Waxxpot can also be classified as a very desirable semi-absentee franchise model which would not require the franchisee owner to be present 100% of the time
Led by CEO, David Sadd who had developed and grown the Salon Lofts franchise concept to over 200 locations, David has brought together a deep team of franchise industry experts at leadership positions throughout the company
David Sadd's franchising experience is well documented. He has assembled an A team of franchise executives with a singular focus on replicating the Salon Lofts success with Waxxpot
Waxxpot currently has five franchisee groups in addition to eleven corporate locations. These early adopter franchisees tend to be very engaged in the growth of their locations and the brand as a whole. There are fifteen additional franchise locations under development.
Backed by investors and the strength of the corporate locations, Waxxpot is well funded and poised for growth
Waxxpot has well defined and proven operational systems with dedicated training and support team.

Sound opportunity and likely a great fit
Waxxpot is well positioned in the marketplace for personal services and based on our evaluation criteria for External Factors there may be some headwinds to overcome in the local markets, but not insurmountable.
