An entrepreneurial couple have launched a second nail salon in Coventry to meet increased demand.

Chloe’s Nails has been a massive hit since opening in New Union Street in 2022, but the salon is not big enough to meet the need.

Keen to continue their business’s growth, but eager to stay at the same location, Nhat anh Ngyuen and his wife Chloe Tran decided to look for a second unit.

Ross Bendall, of Midlands-based commercial property business Holt Commercial, helped the couple find the site in nearby Corporation Street to allow the business to expand and meet demand.

Nhat said: “We needed a second salon because the first was always so busy. We’re getting more and more customers every day.

“We started looking for a second site in August last year, but finding the right location has been really hard.

“Ross has helped us throughout the process. Without his help we would have given up on the search. He really was that helpful and we can’t thank him enough.”

Ross said: “It’s great to see a small business thriving in this way and needing to expand,” he said.

“The space in Corporation Street is absolutely ideal and with considerable investment taking place in this area, it’s a very exciting time to be locating here.”

Nhat and Chloe have already taken on five new employees, but hope to eventually employ 10 staff at the site in Corporation Street, taking the total workforce across both units to around 30. 

“My wife and I try hard to work with our customers,” Nhat explained. “We use social media quite a lot. I don’t think many people in our industry know how important social media is."
