BEVERLY, Mass. (June 25, 2018) – Fantastic Sams® is proud to be featured on the cover of the February/March 2018 issue of Business View North America. The accompanying articledemonstrates Fantastic Sams as a leading hair salon franchisor and a driving force in the hair care industry.

The article points out that Fantastic Sams, the oldest full-service family salon franchise in the U.S., has seen significant growth, posting one of its best development years in the past decade. It paints a solid picture of the company, which grew from the original no-appointment-necessary salon founded by Sam Ross in 1974 in Memphis, TN, into what it is today — a franchise with nearly 1,100 full-service salons in the U.S. and Canada.

Now, the goal is to grow. John Costanza, President and CEO of Dessange Group North America, the parent company of Fantastic Sams, says in the article he wants to get to 2,000 franchises in the U.S. and Canada in the next two to five years.
