When someone enters your franchise environment they enter your franchise brand. That brand, especially the details – conveys who you are and sets you apart. It's not just somewhere to do business, it’s an experience. If it's designed with purpose it can be a very powerful one. With every line, shape, color and infusion of light, we empower you to make a statement – to be distinguished, to inspire everyone who walks through your door. At Wadsworth Design, we exist to create those results.

“The details are not the details. They make the design.” –Charles Eames

We designed, manufactured and installed the furniture, fixtures & equipment (FF&E) for the 100 + Paul Mitchell Schools franchise throughout the United States and Europe since 2000.

Deka Lash, Legends Boxing, Proteinhouse and Code Ninjas are a few of our current and rapidly growing franchise partners.
