Those in Milwaukee will get to choose from more options for hair styling this coming winter, as Drybar plans to launch its first shop in the state.
The California-based salon chain’s expansion also marks its debut in Wisconsin. It chose to open a new store in the 3rd Ward due to its location as the “heart of the fashion district,” according to Drybar founder Alli Webb.
Similar to its other stores, the new Milwaukee shop will provide customers with hair blowout choices and a wide selection of styles. The salon said that the new store would help it to have 90 stores by the end of 2017.
Drybar’s expansion plan could also be your own business trajectory with the right funding solution. There are many alternatives to pursue a plan of opening and expanding a new salon. Business loans, for instance, can serve as your ticket to expanding a business. In California, ARF Financial and other experts noted that business expansion seemed to be on the upswing contrary to a business exodus that others claim to be taking place.
Toyota, Nestle USA, Chevron and Occidental Petroleum are some of the companies that left California to set up business elsewhere. Despite their exit, the state still created a total 51,835 companies between 2014 and 2017, according to American Express and Dun & Bradstreet reports.
California ranked second nationwide based on the small-business category, as the state added more than 46,000 companies with annual sales of below $10 million. It ranked first in the mid-sized range with more than 5,300 companies with annual sales of up to $999 million, while it ranked second in the large-business sector with 97 companies with annuals of sales of at least $1 billion.
Drybar’s expansion into other states could mean that it still sees good business from its headquarters in California. The reports from American Express and Dun & Bradstreet could also indicate that setting up business in the state may not be a bad idea after all.
