Edie Mason had been working as a hair stylist for Country Hair & Body Salon for approximately 9 years when the owners decided to sell the business. At the time, Edie tried to secure financing to purchase the salon but was unsuccessful. The business sold and the new owner gave Edie the opportuntiy to manage the salon as she was away most of the year. After 3 years of managing the salon, the business was again for sale. This is when Edie discovered Community Futures! With our assistance, she was able to purchase the business and her dreams of owning her own business came true!
Since then Edie has really made the space her own. She has completely renovated the salon and added a number of services. She has gained even more repeat customers, some of whom travel quite a distance to come and see her. In Edie's own words "I am lovin' every minute of it!"
