North America’s Original Blow Dry Bar Franchise Enters New State, Propels National Expansion Forward


Blo Blow Dry Bar, North America’s original blow dry bar and blow dry bar franchise, announced today its expansion into Idaho with the signing of a franchise agreement in Meridian. Idaho is the 31st state Blo Blow Dry Bar has entered since being founded in 2007, and the company has aggressive expansion plans to continue to grow across North America.


The franchisee behind Blo Blow Dry Bar’s entry into Idaho is Angela Yates, a School Counselor and Children’s Life Coach at Innovate Academy and Preparatory School, a finance and business private school located in Eagle, Idaho. With Yates past experience in starting small businesses combined with the school’s philosophy to embrace the “entrepreneurial spirit,” Yates was inspired to look for her next entrepreneurial opportunity. 


“When I first learned about Blo Blow Dry Bar I felt that the people of Idaho would love it,” said Yates. “Everyone deserves an affordable way to treat themselves and feel beautiful, and I knew there was a need for this type of service in our community. I am really excited for this new opportunity and honored to bring the first Blo Blow Dry Bar to Idaho.”


This agreement will continue the significant franchise development momentum Blo Blow Dry Bar saw in 2021, as the brand now boasts more than 140 locations opening and operating across the United States.
