About Kennedy's All American Barber Club
Kennedy's All-American Barber Club is an upscale membership-based grooming club for men that combines the experience of a classic barbershop with a club atmosphere. Members enjoy all the benefits a traditional barbershop has to offer, including the classic shave and haircut, complete with shampoo, head massage, and hot towels, while the added billiards tables, arcade, and lounge heighten the experience with gaming and offerings of beer, wine, or soft drinks. Manicure, hair color, waxing, and facial services are also available to our members, providing a one-of-a-kind experience with a nostalgic twist.
Values & History
Originally founded by Chris Hurn and Tony Zara in Florida, Kennedy's All-American Barber Club began by perfecting the authentic barbershop experience before expanding the brand nationwide. President and CEO Jay Hummer fell in love with the "one-hour vacation destination" business as a client, acquiring the brand in 2015 for the purpose of sharing the experience with a nationwide client base. Having expanded to 11 locations since that time, Hummer brings his considerable experience to bear in the interest of providing a strong business model for franchise owners. The company's headquarters is located in the Boston, MA area.
Franchisees of the Kennedy's All-American Barber Club business model are able to capitalize on the $59+ billion per year haircutting industry, which is virtually a recession-proof business. Men's grooming products generated sales of $192 million in 2015 and a 9% current value increase. Growth was fueled by demand for shaving related products and deodorants, as well as skin and hair care products, with a 9% increase in revenue for shaving implements and an 8% increase for pre-shave products.
