Nails, Hair, Make-Up and Massages all require hands-on treatment from beauticians, estheticians, cosmetologists, barbers, hairstylists and massage therapists. Because these licensed professionals have people’s health and well-being in their hands – and can do real damage if they make mistakes – states usually license their practice. In many cases, local agencies add additional license and permitting requirements too.
Although Chandler is largely a suburban satellite of Greater Phoenix, in recent years it has begun to develop some of its own industry. Several high-tech firms have taken advantage of low-cost overhead and business-friendly regulations and established headquarters and manufacturing plants. Additionally, Chandler is home to a diverse array of retail and service businesses. Because Chandler keeps city licensing to a minimum, entrepreneurs will find it an easy place to establish themselves. However, state and county rules also apply, making it necessary for many businesses to obtain a large series of licenses and permits.
