She couldn't afford to keep it open and a bigger salon moved down the street... I already have some ideas I could do with it and maybe have some investors.... but don't know where to start...

Is this a joke?

A BIGGER SALON moved down the street, forcing this place to go under, and you want to re-open?? With Investors?

What Kool-aide are you drinking?

Re: Seven Room Salon

The problem with a 7 room salon is that, ultimately, you only have 7 rooms from with to make revenue. That size is one that can be VERY hard to turn into much more than a 70 hour/week job for the owner.

If you DID go forward, you would probably want to do more of a "boutique" higher end salon. But the room sizes and electric and HVAC probably won't support that without an upgrade.

Equip for a 7 room salon --- if you did a "traditional" mix (that doesn't sound like it would be profitable in the situation you describe) could be done for under 20K to 50K used. Doing a high end boutique mix might be more like 50-100K.

All in, with licensing, insurance, upgrading electric, upgrading HVAC, maybe working on room size changes, getting new signage, inventory, towels, decor, product inventory,....... AND your equip --- you would be looking at anywhere from 50K to 200K all in. But the 50K end --- would be VERY unlikely to be a good investment for you.

Just start with 1 small 24 lamp bed and no signage, hire 3-4 full time employees and start living the dream!

Once you have been open 6 months or so and have made your first million, bring in a 2nd 24 lamp bed. Then once a year bring in another 24 lamp bed until all the rooms are full.

You can do it, I just know you can! You're gonna do so great!
