We’re super excited to announce the Frankie family will be coming to South Yarra in early 2020!
In early 2019, I was on my way to a wedding with a friend when she decided to take a short detour to show me a cute little suburban Salon, down the back streets of South Yarra.
I instantly fell in love and I just had to go inside and say hello. Inside I was greeted by Mary, and elderly lady who had owned the business for 19 years. I told Mary how much i loved her little Salon and if she was ever looking to sell the business i would be very interested.
It just so happened that Mary had been thinking about retiring for some time. She had been approached by a number of people wanting to buy the business and turn it into a cafe but Mary wanted the business to remain a Salon to look after her loyal clientele who had been with her for so long and as such had rejected the previous offers.
Mary is just beautiful and we clicked from the moment we met. We bought her business and took over her lease in mid 2018. Mary is going to continue to rent a chair in Frankie South Yarra for the time being so she can transition her clients over time. We’re thrilled to have Mary continue on as our Frankie Godmother.
Now it’s down to business! The building has so much charm but it needs some serious work to bring it up to Frankie standards. The plans have been drawn, the permits submitted and the builder locked in. Work will begin early December with completion early Feb 2020.
I’m still pinching myself! It’s been such an amazing journey thus far and i’m so excited for the next chapter.
Lots of love
