Charles Penzone, chairman and founder of the Charles Penzone Family of Salons, first envisioned the concept of The Grand Salon in the 1970s. In 1991, his vision of full service, suburban, freestanding salons and day spas became a reality. Under the leadership Charles and his wife, Debra Penzone, now serving as president, the company has grown to six salon/day spa locations operating under three different brand identities. Each brand is unique and has a slightly different demographic based on location, size and function to cater to the different personalities and tastes of central Ohio consumers.
The Charles Penzone Family of Salons has been the recipient of numerous industry and community awards, some of which include, “Salon of the Year” in 1993, 1996 and 2003 from Modern Salon Magazine, the Consumers’ Choice Gold Award and have annually been voted “Best in Columbus” from the readers of Columbus Monthly since 2002.
Debra and Charles have also received several industry recognitions. Most notably,
Debra and Charles were named Top 20 Salon Owners from Salon Today Magazine in 2003 and were recognized by Salon Today Magazine as “Power Players” in the salon and spa industry in 2008.
