Testimonials

"Partnering with Seva Beauty was an easy decision. The level of industry knowledge and support that is provided to each partner is truly amazing. You can completely focus on providing the best customer experience possible knowing that you have years of experience and a proven system behind you!" - Alan Adams, Multi-unit Seva franchisee

"We are very excited and thrilled to have our first Seva salon opened, and we can’t stop mentioning the wait of more than 2 years (for a space to become available in Walmart)! Vas, you have been very patient and have always answered all emails, phone calls and queries during this whole time, however busy you were – no small feat by any means." - Kiran and Dipti Thakkar, Multi-unit Seva franchisee

"We now have 3 Seva locations and are really excited to continue growing with the Seva and Walmart family!" - Asma and Mohammed Khan, Multi-unit Seva franchisee

"Seva has been an opportunity of a lifetime for us! We started as employees of Seva and discovered very quickly that we wanted to own the store. Perhaps the best decision we ever made." - Kinjal and Richa Patel, Multi-unit Seva franchisee

"The Seva model and support were more in-depth and advanced than I expected. Being a first time business owner with no experience in the beauty industry, I was able to succeed and feel proud of the business that I had built. Kari and the rest of the staff are accessible and always able to answer questions and provide valuable insight and suggestions. There was never a time where I felt in over my head or doing it alone. The biggest advantage with Seva is all the upfront work has been done for you, from the vendors to the operation manual to the tried and true Seva Beauty Destiny Protocol." - Brad Bourgeois
