Seva Salon is a national beauty salon franchise that specializes in eyebrow shaping, hair removal and nails, and is exclusively located in Walmart stores nationwide. “BoeFly is an important part of our expansion strategy,” said Vas Maniatis, Managing Member of Seva Salons. “Many of our potential salons are located in rural areas that offer fewer banking options. BoeFly gives our franchisees easy access to a nationwide network of lenders who we believe will understand and appreciate our franchise concept.”
“Today even top franchisors face a significant challenge – converting otherwise qualified franchisee candidates into ongoing, paying customers because of the difficulty they have accessing capital” said David Nayor, President of BoeFly. “Franchise lending has been down by as much as 40% in the past two years due in part to the inefficiencies in the lending process that have been exposed by the financial crisis. BoeFly eliminates these inefficiencies by connecting franchisees with banks that are ready and willing to lend.”
Seva began as Simply Eyebrows! in 2008, when it opened its first location inside the Lafayette Square Walmart in Indianapolis, IN with a limited service offering of threading and eyelash extensions. Since then, it has grown to over 25 locations nationwide with offerings that include brow shaping and facial hair removal by threading and waxing, full nail services including acrylics and gels, full spa services including body waxing and facials, eyelash extensions, henna tattoos, and much more! In mid-2010 Seva launched its nationwide rollout as an exclusive partnership with Walmart, looking to offer its customers the One-Stop-Shopping experience they’ve come to love!
