Bishops Barbershop, cuts and colors for men and women, today announced the launch of a franchise development plan in the U.S. Driving this initiative is the announcement that Seattle is now open for franchise sales. The company plans to sell franchises in Seattle as well as in the surrounding counties of Snohomish, Island and Pierce. Bishops currently has six locations in Portland, and the Seattle launch is part of the company’s strategic plan for entering new markets across North America.
“We are actively seeking new franchisees to own and operate multiple Bishops locations in Seattle and other selected markets across the country to help fuel our growth,” said Leo Rivera, founder, president and CEO of Bishops. “We fill the niche between national hair chains, traditional barbershops and high-end salons for Generations X, Y and Z, offering full-service quality at affordable prices in a fun, casual environment. Our concept is a proven success in the Portland market, and franchising offers the best opportunity for those interested in being a part of the recession-resistant, $55 billion hair care industry.”
Bishops walk-in only policy ensures that customers can get their hair done when it is convenient for them, and the a la carte menu of services lets them decide exactly what they want â€“ style, shampoo, blow dry, a variety of cut and color options, or a hot towel shave. The free bottle of cold Miller High Life offered to those 21 and older adds to the fun, and the edgy artwork and music provide the perfect background for interesting conversations.
“The Bishops atmosphere is energetic and creative, and that keeps our brand fresh and competitive,” Rivera said. “We have an unrestricted fashion policy for our stylists, which heightens their creativity, enhances their client relationships and helps them deliver superior customer service. Bishops is also known for connecting with the local artists, musicians and fashion designers, supporting their work and being a vital member of the community. People stop by our shops to hang out, talk and find out what’s going on in town. Bishops is more than just a place to get a haircut; it’s a lifestyle. We look forward to meeting the entrepreneurs who are ready to bring the Bishops experience to the Seattle area.”
