Rush expansion 2016!!

West HampThe Rush family are thrilled to have had a very exciting year! We’ve welcomed 11 new hair salons to the group and given a mini makeover to 4 existing salons, making them show stoppers on the high streets.

This year’s expansion started in February 2016, with the opening of our elegant Edwardian style salon, Rush West Hampstead, with long standing Rush employee and now Franchisee Liliana Ionescu. Later on in the month, Franchisees Billy and Holly opened Rush Chelmsford. The stunning salon is found on Chelmsford’s busy high street, Moulsham Street. Billy has over 20 years of industry experience in the hairdressing industry and is a previous salon owner.

In March, we welcomed new franchisees Betty and Cherrie, who brought beautiful hair at affordable prices to the charming high street of Ipswich. The stunning Rush Ipswich salon will spoil you with an indulgent head massage followed by a wide range of services available from Blowdry, Cut, Colour Services, Brazilian Blowdry and Afro Services.

Later on this year, we watched Rush employee Kieran Austen follow his dreams of bringing Chelsea to Greenwich with the opening of Rush Greenwich. The gorgeous salon is located on Nelson Road in the heart of Greenwich High Street. Pop in to the salon to meet Kieran and his expert team and leave them to cater to all your hair needs.

In June, Jessica Graville opened the doors to her chic new salon on Market Street, York. Backed by a team of professional stylists, the spectacular heritage salon made it the perfect addition to the Rush family.

Half way through the year in July, we welcomed Andrew and Kelly who opened Rush Milton Keynes with a modern and luxurious salon located in Intu Milton Keynes Shopping Centre. The team at Rush Milton Keynes will be on hand to ensure your next shopping trip will be finished in style with a little added me time in the gorgeous new salon.

With an exciting 6 months of salon openings under our belt, we were thrilled to open our first East Midlands salon Rush Leicester in August, with Franchisee Sandra Hopkins. Found in the heart of Leicester, Sandra and her expert team now provide one of the area’s best hairdressers and services available.

Next came Rush Manchester, an exciting time for the Rush family as we opened a company-owned salon in one of the UK’s most popular cities. Located on the hustle and bustle of Deansgate, the salon is on hand to ensure all your hair dreams come true with late evening appointments Monday to Friday and weekends too.

In October, we opened Rush in Nottingham with another company owned salon. With a modern sleek interior, diverse range of professional hair care and a team of only the very best hairdressers around, Rush Nottingham are on hand to offer you beautiful hair the Rush way.

Going into the last quarter of 2016, long standing Rush employees Hannah and Jess started their new careers as Rush Franchisees with the opening of their stunning East Grinstead salon. Hannah and Jess opened the doors of their salon, with a team of professional and award winning stylists who will work with you, to ensure you have a great hair day, every day.

We were delighted to end a fantastic year with the opening of Rush Holborn, our newest Central London salon and latest addition to the group. Rush Holborn opened its doors on Thursday 1st December with a professional and trained team to get you ready for the biggest party season of the year.

It has been another memorable and successful year of growth for the Rush family and we would like to welcome all the Franchisee’s and new employees to the family. Here’s to many more salons in 2017!
