Our business was built on family values. In 1964, Anthony Shaw, a hairdresser and his son Robert, a CPA opened a beauty salon in New Jersey called Style-Rite. Over subsequent years, they continued to open salons throughout New Jersey.
In the 1970’s, unisex salons began to replace beauty salons. Men, women and children were going to the same salon. Evolving with the times, Style Rite beauty salons became Le Salon unisex salons. Being in the fashion industry trends and styles continued to change. Adapting again to industry trends, Le Salon transformed into Cutting Crew in the 1980’s. Through the decades, we remained true to our business model of offering professional salon services at affordable prices.
In 1989, Robert and his son, Jonathan came across an emerging restaurant franchise called Boston Chicken (now known as Boston Market) while looking for new salon locations. Jonathan opened his first franchise in 1990, and developed four more before selling in 1996. The experience of having been a Franchise Owner would prove invaluable when Johnathan become involved.
After the recession in 2009, Jonathan identified an opportunity and purchased Lemon Tree. Since then, Jonathan and the Lemon Tree team have been building a community of Franchise Owners, many of whom have become multi-unit owners. Now the largest salon franchise on Long Island, they’re ready to bring their decades of salon expertise around the country.
