Secure Your Future
WE’RE NOT GOING ANYWHERE
RESERVE YOUR SUITE
Have you moved from salon to salon, office space to office space, continually hoping for it to be better? Have you had your place of business close unexpectedly? Are you tired of hoping your clients follow you from location to location? This can be costly — emotionally and financially. Make this your last move! We’re here to stay.
It has been a pleasure working with the Gildhouse team; they have been very attentive to our individual needs and growth as a new business. What I love about being a part of the Gildhouse suites is allowing my dreams as a small business owner to flourish into reality. I love being an individual artist, and being a part of a beautiful networking community all wanting to achieve the same goal.

Focus on providing your clients with the best experience and let Gildhouse take care of the workhorse details that are built into your suite.
