I want to open an OPI Concept Salon using only products made by OPI. I am located in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, and I'm sure I would do very well. Would I be allowed to use the OPI name in my salon name? I’d appreciate any advice you can give me! Thanks!
Thanks for your interest.
We’re working on coming up with a franchise or other program that would let other salon owners use the “OPI” name. Unfortunately, it’s not a simple thing to come up with. We don’t want to launch it until we work through any and all issues at ROB|B. I should have an answer for you by the end of this year or the beginning of next. There’s not a current program that will let you use OPI in your salon name.
