Guinot celebrates opening of first Irish franchise

Wednesday 22 February, 2017


Guinot's first franchise based in Ireland has now opened.

The new franchisee, Valerie Craven was joined by International Franchise Director Edouard Falguiere to cut the ribbon and officially open the new salon in the centre of Celbridge, Co. Kildare, this week.Valerie is currently Guinot's only franchisee in Ireland, however she is not new to the brand. 

Having initially trained with Guinot over 30 years ago, Valerie went on to run her own successful home-based salon. She was originally attracted to the idea of franchising when her local Guinot Business Development Manager recommended the opportunity as a viable way to fulfil her aspiration of opening her own high street salon.

Speaking about the success of the launch, Valerie said: “I am very excited about my new venture. It took a while to secure the property, but from then everything moved very quickly and the transformation took only a matter of weeks. I am very much looking forward to being part of the Guinot franchise network and developing my business in 2017.”
