In 1999, Joe Grondin, a Master Barber with over 30 years' experience, opened the first Roosters in Lapeer, Michigan. His goal was to step back in time and re-establish the traditional barbershop for men. Roosters would be a real barbershop, without the gimmicks of most men's haircut establishments or the feminine environment of a hair salon.
The Roosters model is unique to the marketplace. We are not a discount hair chain, so our team members are not pressured to achieve high client turnover. Unlike unisex salons, we have a well-defined clientele and a strong brand-identity. We have created a niche for specialized men's grooming.
The Roosters model is built around a key principle: turning positive customer experiences into strong client relationships. We want you to focus on building relationships and delivering quality services, without feeling rushed or pressured to create more business. Roosters combines modern grooming techniques with the classic barbershop elements. Distinctive touches like the red, white, and blue barber pole, and plush, oversized leather barber chairs create an environment exclusively for men.
Every Roosters store includes:
- Rich, cherry wood interiors
- Plasma TVs
- Exclusive Roosters Club Chair
Every Roosters store offers:
- Free shoeshine and beverage of choice
- Exclusive Roosters Shaving System
- Hair color, nail shaping and waxing (private rooms available)
You may keep your current career and still own Roosters, as a manager will run the day-to-day operations while you provide oversight and leadership. Our POS system allows you to check in on your store while you are doing other things. You do not need any experience in hair care as your manager will provide that for you. We have training, site selection assistance and lease negotiations if needed. All of our stores are constructed by a third party provider and approved by us to ensure a consistent look and feel. If you choose the Turn-Key option we will see your project from start to finish or plans will be provided to you that can be used to obtain bids from contractors in your local area. Roosters also has a line of private label products that is sold in the stores.
