Rush franchisee Nicola Keith-Jopp has been with Rush for over 15 years working in all areas of the company from a stylist to hair consultant, to an educator with Rush’s training academy and then a member of the elite workshop team.

I loved my job but I wanted to pursue a different aspect of the business”

Nicola says “It was then that I decided the next step was to open my own Rush Hair salon” so in 2009 Nicola met with the co-founders and went forward with opening her new salon in Reigate. “We met and discussed everything from location to recruitment and all of the legalities of owning my own franchise, they were very supportive and always there if I needed to talk anything through with them”.

Her salon has been hugely successful and she was awarded franchisee of the year at the 2014 Rush Oscars, our annual in-house awards ceremony. Her passion for doing what she loves shines through and we are so pleased her hard work has been recognised by the British Hairdressing Business Awards.

Nicola’s advice for someone considering franchising:

Make sure you are opening in a good location and do your research into the competition”
