When guests enter your franchise environment they enter your brand. That brand, especially the design, function and quality, conveys who you are and sets you apart with a competitive advantage. It's not just somewhere to do business, it’s an experience. If it's designed with skill and purpose it will be a very powerful one. With every line, shape, color and material used, we design and build your franchise brand to empower you to make a statement – to sell franchises and inspire everyone who walks through your doors. At Wadsworth Design, this is our mission.

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


Wadsworth Design has been designing franchise interiors & furnishings plus manufacturing furniture, fixtures & equipment (FF&E) over twenty six years. We have designed, manufactured and installed the FF&E for the Paul Mitchell Schools franchise since their inception. This includes the 110 + Paul Mitchell Schools franchises throughout the United States and Europe. The Paul Mitchell Schools franchise was named Number One in the Top 50 Franchises—Midsize Systems category by Franchise Business Review in 2010 and 2011, as well as number one in Best in Category—Health and Beauty. We continue to support Paul Mitchell Schools franchise expansion, even today. Deka Lash, Legends Boxing, Hammer and Nails Grooming, Code Ninjas, OrthoLazer and Namaste Nail Sanctuary are some of our current and rapidly growing franchise partners. Each of them have leveraged our cutting edge interior design, top quality FF&E and full scope service to launch their brands and accelerate growth.


The world's most successful franchises utilize beautiful and thoughtful interior and fixture design in every square foot of their environments to generate revenue. They maximize vendor partner relationships to minimize logistical challenges and keep rollout costs consistent. We have expertise in both of these areas—from maximizing ROI with efficient store design and planning of each franchisee’s location, to providing one stop shopping and consistent quality and pricing nationwide on all FF&E. Wadsworth Design will provide you with a highly visible and competitive advantage that will make you attractive to potential franchisees and impossible to catch by competitors.
