Barber Shop, Owner
An experienced barber shop owner found himself without a place to cut his customer's hair after more than 25 years in business.
Reason for Problem
The barber's shop was destroyed by a flood.
What Was Needed to Solve Problem
The barber said he needed to replace his store quickly to avoid losing his large base of customers. He also said the new barber shop needed to be located in a retail center that was more convenient for his customers to reach than his old downtown location.
What We Provided
We provided the barber with a single-chair barber shop. We also helped him land an agreement to operate his shop inside one of the area's largest home improvement stores.
The barber's service revenue quickly doubled operating inside the home improvement store. His earnings then tripled over the next 5 years. This barber now earns approximately $80,000 per year cutting hair.
