“During the pandemic, we had weekly calls keeping each other in the loop on new developments, questions and even answers that we may have come across during the week. We developed an action plan of how we would handle reopening and safety, sharing our concerns for ourselves, our staff and our guests. We came to mutual decisions together, where everyone’s voice was heard and everyone’s opinions did matter. I often contact my region for supplies and they are always able to provide me with my many needs. And I am so grateful for that.” Jennifer Super, franchise owner

As a couple who had spent the last 20+ years serving in the US Air Force, we felt we needed to have local and face to face support as we transitioned to new careers.
The support we have received from Fantastic Sams Cut & Color has been exceptional. There has not been a time during our venture that we have not been able to get immediate attention or answers when faced with challenges. Fantastic Sams Cut & Color goes above and beyond to ensure we have all that we need to be successful.
