About V's Barbershop Franchise LLC

V's Barbershop was inspired by founder Jim Valenzuela's fond memories of going to barber shops with his father, and his desire to recreate that experience with his own son. He opened his first shop in 1999, and in 2005, he began franchising. V's Barbershops offer hair cutting, shaving, massages and facials.
