The Dolmor, a salon that was established in 1952, has a rich history that spans several decades. Originally founded by Elizabeth and Flory Engelhardt, the salon quickly gained a reputation for its dedication to providing top-notch service and its meticulous attention to detail. Their commitment to excellence laid the foundation for a thriving business.
In 1991, the next generation took over the reins of the Dolmor. Lisa Engelhardt and her husband David Robinson acquired the business, embracing the legacy established by Lisa’s parents. Under their leadership, the salon continued to flourish, building upon the solid reputation that had been cultivated over the years.
As of December 2019, the ownership of the Dolmor transitioned once again. Amanda and Jason Watson, a young and driven couple, became the proud new owners of the salon. It’s evident that they share the same determination for success that Elizabeth and Flory Engelhardt had when they initially opened the salon. Amanda and Jason are enthusiastic about upholding the salon’s legacy and furthering its success into the future.
The Dolmor’s story is a testament to the power of hard work, dedication, and a commitment to excellence. With each new generation of owners, the salon’s legacy has been preserved and enhanced, ensuring that clients continue to receive exceptional service and attention to detail.
