Own a sugaringLA Hair Removal Franchise

Founded by brand CEO Danielle Correia, the first sugaringLA location opened in Santa Monica, California in 2011. Correia believes that organic beauty is the future, and people want to avoid chemicals, burns, and radiation on their skin.

One of the oldest hair removal processes, sugaring is believed to have originated thousands of years ago in Egypt. This highly effective natural technique is clean and chemical-free, reduces the likelihood of damage to hair and skin, and is less painful than waxing. Regular sugaring reduces the recurrence of hair growth by removing hairs at the follicle, as opposed to shaving, which is only surface deep.

Like a traditional waxing franchise, the success of sugaringLA owners is based on a recurring revenue model via our Earthly Care™ membership packages. Customers return for sugaring every 3-4 weeks, allowing our owners to build lifetime customers.

SugaringLA studios specialize in and offer a single service – sugaring hair removal. This focus ensures our team members can practice what we do best: provide gentle, clean, and long-lasting hair removal services.

Our sugaring product is sustainable, non-toxic, vegan, organic, gluten-free, and made of just three ingredients: organic sugar, lemons, and water.

In addition to sugaring services, our franchisees sell sugaring and after-care products at their locations.

A part of the estimated $3 billion hair removal industry, sugaring has been around for thousands of years but its market penetration is still low. An alternative to painful waxing, expensive lasering, and disappointing at-home solutions, sugaringLA gives entrepreneurs like you the opportunity to bring something new to your local market.

Earthly Care membership packages encourage repeat business and assist owners in building brand loyalty.

As a Beloved Brand, sugaringLA franchise owners benefit from:

  • Coaching and mentoring from the home office and the Franworth team, bringing over 450 years of franchising experience.

Unlike opening an independent business, sugaringLA franchisees are supported by their home office, the Franworth team, and a nationwide network of owners.

Initial franchisee investment varies by franchise territory, real estate costs, and possible renovations needed for your space. The estimated total includes the cost of build-out, local marketing, grand opening expenses, and three months of working capital. We require a $500,000 minimum net worth and $150,000 minimum liquid capital to be considered for a franchisee position to ensure that sugaringLA is the right fit for you.

To start a sugaring waxing business, you need passion, training, entrepreneurial spirit, and real-life, valuable support. By choosing sugaringLA, you can get a jump start on owning your own business with the help of the sugaringLA and Franworth teams. New franchisees can count on this network for technical and operational training, coaching, and mentoring, as well as launch and ongoing support.

Who Is the Right Fit for a sugaringLA Franchise?

While having a licensed esthetician on staff is a requirement for performing services, no prior experience is necessary to invest in and manage a sugaringLA franchise. Familiarity with the beauty industry is a plus, but what truly matters are a passion for self-care and a desire to be part of an exciting new franchise opportunity. The training and support programs offered by the sugaringLA and Franworth teams offer the effective support a franchisee needs to start with no previous experience at all. Franchisees should also be prepared to maintain a welcoming, client-friendly space; unlike our home service brands, sugaringLA requires a brick-and-mortar location.
