She did mention to me that it may be better to buy one versus opening a new one up. From what she told me the best time to buy one is in the slow season (Aug-Nov).

He sold them all, opened a liquor, wine store, and owns a lot of commercial real estate. It used to be extremely profitable but it's harder to make money these days. I still have a friend who owns a successfully salon but most of his clients are wealthy. He doesn't have to worry about competition, he charges a premium and provides premium service. His place has turned into a meeting hall for the wealthy stay at home moms.
This +1. From my experience as a lawyer representing tons of nail salons they are pretty low on the "desirable, stable business ladder"

She understands the operations side of business backwards and forwards since she ran a few locations in FL with her ex husband. She knows how to spot good employees, keep them motivated, the right pricing strategy, which services to offer customers, etc. I can provide the commercial real estate experience, lease negotiation, financing knowledge, accounting/tax side, and budgeting/forecasting skills.
Most landlords don't like nail salons, they are low rent and fly by night. Even if you're a "good" salon, you won't generate significant revenue to compete with "good" tenants.

A lot salons pay their employees under the table to cut costs and its tough to compete with that operating structure without going illegal also.
