January 31, 2020

The brand behind London’s finest blow dry bars, Duck & Dry extends franchise opportunities nationwide and globally.

Duck & Dry has become the go-to place for quality blow dries in London, amidst stylish interiors and a fun, buzzy environment. Having established itself as a distinctive brand renowned for its unique design and experience, Duck & Dry swiftly amassed a loyal consumer following. In addition to Duck & Dry’s own locations in Chelsea, Oxford Circus, Soho and Mayfair, the first franchise was launched in Old Spitalfields Market in 2019, along with another franchise to follow in Spring 2020 in trendy Islington. Duck & Dry is now offering franchise opportunities nationwide and globally to meet consumer demand beyond the capital.

Over the last five years, CEO & Founder of Duck & Dry, Yulia Rorstrom and her team have developed a proven formula for a successful blow dry bar business and are now ready to share that expertise, knowledge and provide support to fellow entrepreneurs. Being an avid supporter of female entrepreneurs, Yulia hopes to continue to embolden other women to launch and run a successful business, with Yulia at hand to assist with fine tuning operations and processes to ensure effective results. Launching Duck & Dry with no previous background in the beauty or hair industry, Yulia shares her insights: ‘Whether you have hairdressing experience or not, launching your own business is an exciting, yet daunting journey. Having learnt through my own experience and my acute understanding of what it takes to open and run a successful salon, as well as challenges of a very competitive space, I’m keen to share my knowledge and encourage new entrepreneurs by providing them with attentive support, practical advice and expertise to make their journey smooth and prosperous.’

Duck & Dry’s success is based upon six pillars as a proven framework for a salon business. It includes providing franchisees the rights to the distinctive brand along with all its characteristic elements, unique brand interiors, advice on store selection, detailed design specifications, access to its menu of on-trend and in-demand hairstyles, alongside rigorous training programme to ensure consistency and performance across the whole team. The
franchise model also gives exclusive access to the Duck & Dry product range, propriety salon software, as well as in-house marketing support.
