Salons By JC To Open At Northgate Mall In October

Tuesday, May 06, 2014

Scott and Jana Matsinger were looking for an investment to supplement their retirement income and when they heard about the Salons by JC franchise opportunity.   The business will allow them to invest in their future and support licensed beauty professionals in starting their own businesses with next to none of the capital typically required by a traditional salon. 

The 6,500 square foot space was originally part of the old movie theater and work has already begun to level out the floors.

  The front of the salon will feature an entirely new façade along with an exterior entrance into the new facility.  Once complete, the Northgate location will feature 34 fully equipped, high-end suites that will offer a full range of beauty services including; hair care, massage therapy, nail and skin care.

The Matsinger’s were impressed with the recent redevelopment work taking place at Northgate Mall and acknowledged,  “We needed a high traffic shopping hub and this location was just what we were looking for.”  Northgate Mall General Manager Steve Banks added, “We are thrilled to have this relatively new salon concept – the first of its kind in Chattanooga, open here at Northgate Mall.   It’s a perfect fit for our savvy shoppers.”

Mr. Matsinger, a native of Houston, Texas holds a Bachelor of Science and Masters of Accountancy from Tulane University.   Mrs. Matsinger holds a Master’s degree from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga and is a Chattanooga native.  They have both resided in the Chattanooga area for over seventeen years. For additional information on leasing suites, please contact them at (423) 280-6723.
