Australian Skin Clinics has been named the fastest growing beauty franchise in Australia by the Financial Review. The Gold Coast company placed second on the 2016 Financial Review Fast 100 list thanks to a 311.1% rise in growth in 2015 that resulted in more than $39.54 million worth of revenue.
Managing Director Deb Farnworth-Wood said the company achieved such rapid expansion due to its successful business model and growing consumer demand.
“2016 in particular has been a very successful and exciting year for Australian Skin Clinics, having crossed the Tasman to establish The Cosmetic Clinic in New Zealand and in December we will continue our expansion by opening our first clinic in South Australia,” says Farnworth-Wood.
“This year the company also joined forces with the leading and largest hair and beauty retailer in Australia, Hairhouse Warehouse, prompting the re-branding of the existing Ella Rouge Beauty franchises to Australian Skin Clinics.
“The hair and beauty sectors represent what is more than a $3.8 billion retail industry and by joining forces with Hairhouse Warehouse we are further positioning ourselves as leaders in the laser and skin rejuvenation sector. The re-brand of Ella Rouge Beauty franchises will result in Australian Skin Clinics doubling our franchise footprint overnight.”
Described as one of Australia’s original skincare and beauty centres, Australian Skin Clinics affirm that their philosophy of providing their clients with good value, affordable, accessible and effective cosmetic treatments is one of the main reasons for their success.
“Over the years I’ve learnt that owning a successful business isn’t necessarily about being the first, it’s about being the best. The best at what you do,” says Farnworth-Wood.
“Australian Skin Clinics’ innovation, education and commitment to customer care and quality have resulted in our ability to grow rapidly since opening our first franchise clinic just five years ago.”
As for the future, Farnworth-Wood said growth and on-going success is on the cards for the Australian medi-aesthetic franchise.
“There is a growing consumer adoption and demand for laser, skin rejuvenation and cosmetic injectable treatments; so the future is certainly bright.”
“We have an aggressive growth strategy planned, with the rebranding of 24 Ella Rouge Beauty franchises to Australian Skin Clinics and over a dozen new clinics scheduled to open in the 2017 Financial Year.”
