THE TEN SPOT is Canada’s and soon to be the US’s largest and fastest growing beauty bar and retail company. With a mission to make everyone #FeelLikeATen, THE TEN SPOT is a beautifully designed environment in which customers receive a range of exceptional nail, waxing and facial services. In order to ensure excellence,THE TEN SPOT uses only the highest quality products and has an unwavering commitment to hygiene.

Led by creator and CEO Kristen Gale, one of the North America’s most recognized young leaders and entrepreneurs. In 2006, Kristen saw an opportunity to close the beauty market gap between the cheap and often-questionable nail shops, and expense and often over-the-top spas. Kristen envisioned an offering that combined the efficiency of the nail salons with the service excellence of spas. She harnessed the perfect storm of concept, timing, and market, specifically targeting the massive demographic of women aged 18 to 65 with a goal to deliver what all busy women want: a one-stop-shop for getting all their beauty maintenance services in one spot. Within three months of creating her vision, Kristen and her team opened their doors on Queen Street West, becoming Toronto’s first niche beauty bar and anti-spa.

In 2012, the first franchise opportunities were created to fuel THE TEN SPOT’s growth. Expansion into the USA soon followed, and the original Canadian corporate locations were sold to eager franchise partners. Kristen and her team then set their sights on taking over The Beauty Bar world. THE TEN SPOT culture is a true reflection of its brand: fun, creative, and committed to excellence. The rapidly expanding Ten Spot team now have 33 beauty bars operational with their first location in the USA recently opened, with entry into the UK and European markets soon to follow. Compelling strategies are in place to drive sustained sales growth and recurring revenues of current and future bars through expanded service offerings, membership programs, and proprietary products.

Owners Ermos Erotocritou and Marlene Harbare more than happy to welcome customers to the first and only franchise of The Ten Spot in Durham Region. The Ten Spot Whitby officially opened on April 15, 2023 at 4150 Garden St #4, Whitby, ON L1R 0S1. Instagram
