Jim’s New Franchise Trades Hedge Clippers for Nail Clippers

November 14, 2023 2:00 pm in by

Known for popular franchises like Jim’s Mowing, Jim’s Cleaning, and Jim’s Painting, Jim’s Group is cutting a new path and moves from mowing to manicures.

Australians now have the opportunity to join the Jim’s Beauty franchise and start their own business in the beauty industry. Services offered include facials, nails, spray tans, teeth whitening, and even bridal packages.

One of Australia’s most successful entrepreneurs, Jim Penman, founded the Jim’s Group in 1982, starting with Jim’s Mowing and is expanding globally. With over 5000 franchisees across Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and the United Kingdom, Jim’s Group has established itself as a leading brand in various industries.

Despite its official launch on November 1, there has been some scepticism surrounding Jim’s Beauty due to the success of Jim’s Mowing. However, evidence of the legitimacy of the new venture includes branded cars, a website and social media accounts.

The unexpected entry into the beauty industry has caused a stir on TikTok, with Australian comedian HiJosh questioning if Jim’s Beauty was legit.

Others have questioned some of the marketing tactics used in promo material.

It’s important to note that Jim’s Beauty services haven’t taken over the country (yet) and are currently only available in limited locations.

Jim’s Beauty franchises offers three different models: the franchisee can go to the customer’s house, operate from their own home, or open a shop or traditional beauty salon.

We must ask the question: Is this a franchise opportunity that nails it? 🤣
