Being a business owner is cool, but you know what’s cooler? Owning a
Tommy Gun’s Original Barbershop.
A year ago I became a Tommy Gun’s franchise owner, and since then I haven’t looked back. Being an entrepreneur I work to live life on my terms, if I don’t believe in it I know I’m not going to succeed. I invested in owning a Tommy Gun’s because I believe in the Tommy Gun’s brand. My wife will ask me if I’ve changed my shirt everyday because I wear TG branded everything, right from my underwear to my tailored shirts. I definitely drink the kool-aid even the other Calgary owners tease me about it. But I love it, I embrace it because I believe in it, I know there’s an entire brand behind me to succeed as a business owner and that gives me the confidence I need.
Tommy Gun’s has found that niche between old school barbershop to new school he-time pampering and I think the brand is just going to keep growing. The power of any business is always in the name. The success of the business comes from marketing that name and brand, refine your operations, build your culture and invest in your people. There is a process in place that the brand delivers on to its franchisees and its people. That process has been empowering to learn from and I know as an owner I will continue to grow in the years to come.
