FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How much can I earn as a Professional Sharpener after I am trained and equipped?

It depends on how hard a person wants to pursue their dream. The going rate for salon sharpening is $25.00 a scissor. A slow beginner can do a proper reconditioning of an expensive salon scissor in under fifteen minutes. This translates to $100 an hour without sales. Add scissors sales to your business call, and you can make some really serious money. There are several Sungold Group graduates making in excess of $100,000.00 dollars a year.

Are there any franchise fees or territory restrictions?

No! This is a complete turn key business. There are No Franchise Fees, No Recurring Fees and NO Restricted Territories in this program. You can can work when you want and where you want.

With new advances in electronic motor technology, we are now able to bring to professional sharpeners fabulous new machines that weighs in at 10 pounds with no sacrifice of sharpening accuracy or quality.

Is the equipment big and noisy - do I need to set up a dedicated workshop?

Professional sharpening is an art of skill and finesse! The equipment used is quiet, clean and compact and does not require a special work area, other than what is convenient for the sharpener.
