Barber Shop Executive Summary

Business Overview

Regal Men Barber Shop is a locally owned and operated new barber shop located in Minneapolis, Minnesota. It is owned by local barber Maxwell Jackson, a community favorite who will provide professional and stylish haircuts to men of all ages. Regal Men Barber Shop will be located in a highly-trafficked strip mall on one of Minneapolis’ busiest streets. Maxwell chose that location because it will be convenient for a man to drop off his laundry and walk over to the barber shop for a haircut while they wait for their laundry. Because it is located next to a gym, someone can stop in for a haircut before or after their workout. The current location is already a barber shop that was owned by Maxwell’s former employer. The former owner has retired, and Maxwell will reopen the location as his own newly-branded and updated barber shop that is in need of an update and renovation.

Regal Men Barber Shop will provide haircuts, fades, designs, shampoos, hot towel shaves, and beard trimming. His barber shop will consist of six chairs for other barbers to rent, 2 shampoo stations, and a comfortable waiting area. The razors, scissors, and combs will be thoroughly cleaned after each use, and the towels used will always come out warm and fresh. Not only is he an expert at cutting hair, Maxwell is well-known for providing the best hot shave in town.
