I'm talking about the new Canvas Suites at 6th & Lamine. They've taken the original Boonslick Library building and turned the 5,000 square feet into 20 suites for salons, barbers, estheticians, massage therapists, lash technicians, other service providers, mini retail, or office professionals whose businesses might benefit from a high-traffic area.

Also located inside Canvas Suites are the Coffee Port Cafe and Maclin & Co. Mini Boutique.

While not limited to salons and salon-type businesses, Canvas Suites is designed with those types of businesses in mind. Each suite comes with plumbing and outlets on every wall. Which, I would expect are helpful to those types of businesses. Their business model is also designed to help those in salon type businesses keep more of their income.

Additional amenities at Canvas Suites include suite customization, 24/7 building access, stocked & maintained restrooms, free on-site laundry, a break room with a kitchenette, a private parking lot, LED lighting, and a waiting area for guests.

Canvas Suites also offers businesses that chose a suite with them as much or as little support as they want. They even have a jump-start guide to help new business owners start off on the right foot. Additionally, each business located in Canvas Suites will be highlighted on the Canvas Suites website.

If you're looking at starting a business, or you think Canvas Suites might be the kickstart your business needs you can learn more about them here.
