We had the good fortune of connecting with Sam Decorato and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Sam, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
Our thought to starting our own business is simply this, we recognized something was missing in our beauty profession and we knew we could be the ones to provide it. We wanted to provide an establishment with highly skilled professionals that were more that average stylists, barbers, and skin care specialist providing celebrity status services at cost effective rates for our community. The beauty industry is missing the higher level customer service etiquette, and we wanted to bring this back.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Main Street Salon Suites is a full service beauty establishment that has individual salon businesses that works cohesively as one salon. There is exactly 7 business in this one establishment. We are proud of our suites lessors are either Educators, product developers, and specialists in their respective niche. Most establishments want to thrive as an individual private salon business, but our Team know that we can get grow bigger, better and faster if we work together as a single unit. Over a 10 year tinture, my wife has worked from big company store as a barber stylist to renting suites. We have discovered most times structures is missing in suites rentals and you have to market yourself which is time consuming and very hard when you’re alone. Yet we dreamed of offering something better than what has been presented before us. Gathering with like minded individuals we are able to do just that and present a better options to renters. The key is having the right individuals to see the vision and add to it.
Some of the lessons we have learned is to know exactly what it is you want and watch the divine spark place those in to you life to make the vision real.
We want the word to know we stared our business during the heightened panic of COVID-19 , and the rebuilding of Downtown Denison when, shortly after opening Main Street Salon Suites the closed our road for construction prohibiting customers from entering. We found out the true meaning of GRIT during this process. Perseverance , integrity, and a belief in your dreams is the heart of our existence, But the Grace and Mercy of God provided hope so we could endure all the tough times.
