In today's hyper-competitive franchise world you must be distinguished. When someone enters your franchise environment they enter your brand. That brand, especially the design, function and quality, 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 skill and purpose it will be a very powerful experience. With every line, shape, color and material used, we design your brand to empower you to make a statement – to be distinguished, to inspire everyone who walks through your door. At Wadsworth Design, this is our mission.

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


Wadsworth Design has been designing interiors and manufacturing furniture, fixtures & equipment (FF&E) for almost twenty five years. We have designed, manufactured and installed the FF&E for Paul Mitchell Schools since their inception as a franchise brand, including 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 and Code Ninjas are a few of our other current and rapidly growing franchise partners. Each of them have leveraged our cutting edge interior design and quality FF&E to launch and accelerate their growth.


The world's most successful franchises utilize beautiful and thoughtful interior design and branding in every square foot of their environments to generate revenue. They maximize vendor partner relationships to minimize logistics and keep rollout costs at a minimum. 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 efficient competitive advantage that will make you attractive to potential franchisees and impossible to catch by competitors.

“Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.” –Steve Jobs
