Lily Pins - franchise opportunities for hairdressers, beauticians and chiropodists in the Care sector

Franchise Opportunities

In order to meet the volume of enquiries coming to us from the care community, and with our commitment to only grow at a pace that guarantees a high quality service for our clients, Lily Pins has built a franchise model which is now being rolled out country-wide.

The Lily Pins pilot franchise, called ‘Evelynrose’, was launched by franchisee Eve Smith in Hertfordshire in June 2011 and has gone from strength to strength.

Having become passionate about the Lily Pins brand over a 3 year period of working with us, Eve, who has had a career as a carer and a hairdresser, became our first franchisee with an initial client base of 3 contracted care homes in her appointed area.

The Lily Pins Evelynrose Branch now offers a dementia trained hairdressing, beauty and footcare service to 8 care establishments in Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, East Herts and West Essex, including Luton, Hitchin, Letchworth, Epping and Waltham Abbey.

With a potential market of 22,000 care homes in the UK, the Lily Pins franchise model works brilliantly for entrepreneurial hair and beauty professionals who share our values and our understanding of the needs of our client base.

With a franchise package containing Lily Pins dementia training and all our trialled and tested policies and procedures, we would be delighted to hear from hairdressing and beauty professionals who have a desire to build their own business in an incredibly rewarding industry.

A few words from our ‘Evelynrose’ Lily Pins Franchisee

Evelynrose Franchise

“Since becoming managing director of my own Lily Pins franchise, Jenny and her back up team have offered me ongoing support and advice, giving me the confidence and tools to grow my business. Beginning with three care home contracts in June 2011, I now have 8 contracts with homes in my own assigned territories.

I must admit that being a franchisee has been hard work, and long hours, but for me, the position is perfect. I am proud to manage Evelynrose Branch, I was given the opportunity to have my own business, which was ready made and a genuinely admirable concept.

I have four stylists who have supported me through my journey as a Lily Pins franchisee, and who share the passion and commitment to provide a specialized service. We offer hairdressing services, beautician services and footcare services to the care industry, in homes across West Hertfordshire, East Essex, Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire.

I would recommend a Lily Pins Franchise to anyone with drive and passion for providing a caring service to those who need it most. Becoming a franchisee has changed my life for the better, and will continue to change my life as I grow my own Evelynrose Branch of Lily Pins”
