Episode 040 – Opening our Barbershops where we want to open them instead of taking what we can get

Powered by RedCircle

What if you could open a Barbershop in a Publix shopping center (or another high-traffic location)? What do they knw that we don’t know?

About this episode…

Most of the Barbershop owners I have met opened their shop by finding a space (maybe a recently closed shop?) and then moving in.

Most of them also wonder what it would have been like if they could have opened in a better, busier location.

We can… it takes some prep work, and it often takes having someone representing us to the people making the decisions about what types of stores they ant in their locations… and who knows the ins and outs of getting lessors to look at us and to help us position our shops for success.

In this episode, we talk about:

  • A lot of the stores in shopping centers and malls are pre-planned
  • How we can get our Barbershops included into those plans
  • The people who can help get us in front of the right people to open shops in the most desirable locations
