Tommy Gun's Original Barbershop Corporate Profile

What it's like to partner with one of the leading national brands for men's grooming.

Why be a part of the Tommy Gun's barbershop family?

The Market Opportunity

Tommy Gun's was created to fill the void that existed in men’s grooming. Experience a guy’s only barbershop focusing on service, convenience and high tech extras. We’ve matched up the retro feel with a hassle-free, laid back environment and 5 star service standards. The décor is reminiscent of 1930’s Chicago or New York with a retro barbershop feel. Locations feature brick, steel and authentic custom made leather barber chairs.

What Makes Us So Unique

For the ultimate in convenience we designed a state-of-the-art queuing system. It’s an easy to use check-in terminal that enters your name in the queue for service and is displayed on a 60 inch flat screen TV. This may also show wait times depending on the number of customers at that time present.

At check-in you’ll be given timing options for notification via SMS text messages. This will alert you when you are nearing the top of the que. This gives you the flexibility to either stay at the barbershop or come back when your grooming specialist is available.

In the waiting area you’ll find iPads for surfing and cool arcade style games. Catch up with your email or check the scores for your favorite team sports. As well, each station features in-mirror televisions. When you’re seated, we hand you the remote. Every haircut or hot shave includes a complimentary beverage and relaxing scalp massage.

The Experience—Second to None.

Put that all together and you are left with the most memorable barbershop guest experience ever.

We as a business strive to create amazing grooming experiences for every guy that walks through our doors.
