Tune Up; The Manly Salon in Hardin Valley, a thriving community outside of Knoxville Tennessee, celebrates its 3 year anniversary today on May 2nd.
It was a bright day on May 2, 2020 when franchisees Frank & Janette Saroka officially opened the doors of their Tune Up; The Manly Salon in Hardin Valley. To say that opening happened during challenging times would be an understatement, but both Frank & Janette had their eyes set on a long-term strategy and a tenacity to succeed where others were not.
With a vision to live the American dream as business owners in 2019 when they signed their franchise agreement, nobody could have predicted what 2020 had in store.
But the resilience, determination and figureoutable'ness that is the very backbone to every successful entrepreneur are the ingredients to the Saroka's success to-date.
Anthony Milton, Tune Up; The Manly Salon CEO said, "We are a brand whose very foundation is built on the ability to pivot on a dime. It was a team effort between our corporate team and theirs to pull off an unprecedented grand opening at a time other brands were closing hundreds of locations across the country. Frank & Janette embody the culture of the brand wholeheartedly and that's proven in how they navigated 2020 & 2021. We are proud to have them part of the Tilted franchise family, and Tune Up; The Manly Salon specifically with not just one location, but soon to celebrate the grand opening of their 4th location in Alcoa, TN."
"Frank & Janette's sense of community is a large part of their success." said Michael-David Reilly, Director of Marketing. "They are intentional with their support of locally owned businesses, schools and community events and active with their local Chamber of Commerce. That constant integration & loyalty within their community was a significant driver to their success and you can see that in their social media, customer sentiment and retention. The Saroka's live and breathe the brand, and that's clear in everything they do, and a contributing factor to not only their community support but a strong team culture with their 3 locations in Hardin Valley, Karns & Lenoir City with a 4th already underway in Alcoa.."
Samantha Piercy, Director of Operations, said, "Involved franchise owners are the key to a location's success, and Frank & Janette both have been all in since they signed their agreement. The first time I met them I had a strong intuition to their success, and I'm glad I was right. Every interaction with them is fluid and passionate to do whatever it takes to succeed with each location. It's exciting to see them prepare to open their 4th Tune Up; The Manly salon location in the Alcoa, TN area."
