Business Journal: Paul Mitchell Comes To Town
A big-name competitor in the field of cosmetology has come to the Sacramento region.
Monday, July 10, 2006
The Paul Mitchell company is creating two franchise colleges in the Sacramento area. The first just opened at MTI College, a private career-training school. The 2nd will open at the Howe Bout Arden shopping center in September. Each school is eventually expected to have about 200 students, paying tuition of $17,000 for the program. In California, a minimum of 1,600 hours of training is required. The Sacramento area already has at least 10 independent beauty schools, plus Sacramento City College’s program with 227 students. Still, it’s a field where there’s a shortage of workers … and new graduates typically have no problem finding a job.
