Fantasy Nails Plus First Year is a Huge Success

If there is one thing that the experts at Chatham-Kent Economic Development and the Small Business Centre continue to reiterate as the secret to success in business, it is the need to write a strong business plan and to execute that plan. Minh Dinh, President of Fantasy Nails Plus, has done exactly that and his first year results have been outstanding.

“Fantasy Nails Plus has been embraced by the community of Chatham-Kent and we can’t be more thankful to everyone for making our first year in business such an overwhelming success,” said Dinh. “I also need to thank Rosemarie at the Small Business Centre for all of her support in helping us to build our business plan and for the ongoing guidance which has been so important.”

Since launching in August of 2018, Fantasy Nails Plus has hired on eight full-time staff and four part-time staff. Their goal is to have 14 full-time staff delivering a premium spa experience focused on high-quality, full-service nails care and skin care to the surrounding community.

“I have been working very hard to recruit staff within Chatham-Kent and also bringing in experts from across Ontario and around the world,” said Dinh. “A big part of our culture is to make sure that staff are highly trained and using the latest industry-leading techniques. Our focus is to provide staff and customers with the best equipment available in a sterile and sanitary environment.”

“Customers come to us because they expect the best experience, and we work very hard to deliver that every single visit,” added Dinh.

This level of quality has not gone unnoticed in the community and is a reason why Fantasy Nails Plus is booking days and sometimes weeks in advance.

“I never want to turn people away, but we also must ensure that quality is maintained for our customers. While sometimes we can accept walk-ins, we are asking people to call in advance and schedule their spa times to ensure that they receive the best experience,” said Dinh.

When asked about the success Fantasy Nails Plus has seen over the past year, Rosemarie Montgomery, an Economic Development Officer with Chatham-Kent Economic Development said, “I saw the passion and effort Minh was putting into planning and it was clear that he was preparing himself and his business to thrive. He made sure that there was no stone left unturned in developing his plan and took advantage of every service that the Small Business Centre has to offer.”

“I’m thrilled to be able to see the business develop and grow over the past year and know it will continue to be a success in the years to come,” added Montgomery.

This Saturday, August 24, 2019, the public is welcome to stop by Fantasy Nails Plus to enjoy some treats and have a tour of the location as they launch their one-year anniversary celebration.
