Boston, MA (PRWEB) April 30, 2005
The Snip-its Corporation, headquartered in Natick, MA, will host its First Annual Franchisee Convention May 1, 2 &3 at the Wyndham, Boston. The theme of the convention is ÂLetÂs Get it Started!,Â and thatÂs just what the Company plans to do. The Convention will gather franchisees from more than 17 states, corporate team members, salon managers and Snip-itsÂ preferred vendors for a unique opportunity to network, share information, and join in the excitement of the CompanyÂs success. At the Convention the Snip-its Corporation will unveil marketing initiatives for the next 12 months, introduce insightful keynote speakers, offer several opportunities for peer workshop discussions and provide seminars for franchisees in development as well as extensive training for those currently in operation.
Snip-its is a unique franchise organization that mixes childrenÂs hair care and entertainment in a creative and unique setting. Conceived by Joanna Meiseles in 1993, the first Snip-its salon opened in Framingham, MA in 1995. Over the next several years, Meiseles opened four additional salons in the greater Boston area, and in the fall of 2003, the company launched a Franchise Program that has proven to be very successful.
The decision to host the First Annual Convention is based upon the success and rapid proliferation of the Snip-its Franchisee program. Since 2003 the company has grown over 150%.
ÂWe are growing so rapidly that we felt initiating an annual convention was the right step to ensure the long-term success of our franchisee partners,Â said Joanna Meiseles, founder and president of The Snip-its Corporation. Â2005 is an especially significant year of growth for us, and this convention is an opportunity to bring our partners together to launch several very exciting initiatives for the next twelve months.Â
The First Annual Snip-its Convention will include an introduction of the 2005/6 Promotional Calendar, an innovative marketing program that includes a charitable component to benefit Locks of Love. Additional highlights of the Convention include unveiling the official Snip-its Birthday Party series and keynote addresses from Mitch Roberts of Panera Bread and David Hood, President of the iFranchise Group.
Members of the media are invited to attend the Convention and should contact Victoria Breglio for credentials.
