Each year, a hardworking franchisee is awarded Salon of the Year for its performance.

In 1997, the first Regal Nails franchised location opened its doors in a Kmart at Brooklyn, Ohio. Twenty years later, the Regal Nails franchise system has become the largest nail salon franchise, with over 800 locations in the United States and Canada. “Our team works tirelessly to assist our franchisees in realizing their dream in owning and operating their own business,” says the franchisor’s marketing coordinator Kiri Meche. Here’s a timeline highlighting the important milestones of the Regal Nails franchise system.

Every month, 30-40 Regal Nails franchisees visit the franchisor’s headquarters in Baton Rouge, La., to discuss new products, services, and opportunities to help grow their salon business.
