12 Days of ST200: Announcing Planned ProfitabilityThe pinnacle of success for any salon owner is how much profit their business can generate. We asked SALON TODAY 200 applicants to prepare a presentation to fellow salon owners that outlined their long-term strategies for growing a sustainable business and cultivating a profit. We awarded extra credit for businesses that proved they had clear-cut systems for both projecting and meeting their goals and to salons and spas that could generate profit without relying on the service provider income of its owners. In addition, we required applicants to back up their numbers with signed statements from their business coaches or accountants.
