Cre8 Salon has just recently marked another historic milestone for itself as the company partners with two of the country's premiere brands with products widely used in the salon business, L'Oreal and Orly.
The Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) signing ceremony was held on April 3, 2018 at Mesa Filipino Moderne restaurant located in Timog Avenue, Quezon City.
Cre8 Salon, which currently has 21 company-owned Branches, plans to expand to 100 more branches within 5 years. From the Question and Answer portion with the members of the media, they said that they may also open the business for franchising opportunities soon.
Basically the partnership involves provision of training to all employees of Cre8 Salon which will be conducted by trainors coming from the camps of both L'Oreal and Orly. This also includes international beauty experts that will be visiting Manila. The two companies will be providing training to both current and future Cre8 Salon staff to improve their skills, and eventually their services as well.
Cre8 Salon will now carry L'Oreal and Orly brands exclusively. The two brands have consistently provided products that have exceeded their client's expectations and thus helped them solidify their brand presence.
The MOA signing was led by James Paul Santiago, CEO of Cre8 Salon, who also gave the opening remarks, together with his sister, Ma. Angela Santiago, Founder and Finance Director of Cre8 Salon.
The other signatories, which includes the people from Orly and L'Oreal, were Roshell Zamora, Sales Manager; Persie Torregoza, General Manager for Sprint Asia Beauty; Mark Jason Dee, Marketing Director; and Luis Antonio Yanga, General Manager for Professional Products.
We've learned that Cre8 Salon is literally a family business since all 7 siblings are practically involved in the regular operations with specific roles and designations within the company. Angela said in an interview with Wazzup Pilipinas that she visits Cre8 salon branches everyday, so with the current number of 21 branches, we mentioned that their division of visits would most probably be 3 branches per sibling since there's 7 of them.
But what would happen when they have an additional 100 within the next 5 years? Could they still handle it? That would probably mean hiring even their cousins and other relatives if they want to maintain the management of their business within their ... clan (since they've already grown too big to handle by just 7 people.
But of course, we'll find a solution to that challenge when we get there. We want Cre8 Salon to grow bigger to provide more employment opportunities. They did say they employ around 10 people per branch so an additional 100 branches would mean 1000 happily employed and skillful staff thanks to their newly forged alliance with L'Oreal and Orly.
What strikes us most everytime we see a Cre8 Salon branch is the stunningly attractive and huge logo cum signage that fronts their salon branches. You'll definitely take a second look, try to read what it says, and admire the artistry that went to the design of the logo. It is apparent that there's a scissor image within the logo and how they capitalize on the lucky number 8 as a prominent part of their business name.
Congratulations to the Cre8 Salon family for this new coalition. We're planning to visit their branch nearest to us soon to probably do a special vlog of their services. That would surely be great to witness how they'll be able to transform us into a new look - a before and after make-over vlog which is just perfect timing since our hair terribly needs a haircut right now, and a possible change of hairstyle that's appropriate for our age.
This means you have to watch out for another special feature about Cre8 Salon soon. So until next time, this has been your Pambansang Blogger signing off for now, and see you again soon on our next blog adventure.
