At the young age of 16, our founder, Jeimy Flournoy, traveled to the U.S. for the first time. From there, she learned English, put herself through college, and saved money little by little. Although she her first job in the US was as a janitor, having her own business was always on her mind, driving her towards hard work and success. Drawing on her younger years of Dominican salon experience, she drafted what would become Salon 809’s business plan. A few more years of saving and Salon 809 officially opened its doors in 2015, experiencing rapid success!
Today, Salon 809 has three locations and is now franchising one of the first Dominican hair salons in the U.S.! To learn more about the franchise opportunity, click this button.
