V’s Barbershop, a traditional, upscale, authentic barbershop

Remember the old-time barbershop that Dad took you to when you were a kid? By now, most of them have vanished. In November 1999, V's Barbershop & Shoeshine® opened in Phoenix and the great old-time barbershop was reborn. From the real barber chairs, to the old fashioned hot lather and straight razor shave, to the head and neck massage, V's Barbershop sets a new standard. Our barbers provide traditional and short hair cuts, as well as contemporary men's haircut styles. At V's, we bring you the nostalgia of yesteryear with a modern twist.

Why V's Barbershop

When Jim Valenzuela “V” opened the first V’s Barbershop & Shoeshine in 1999, he simply wanted an old fashioned barbershop to take his son for a haircut and to enjoy the barbershop tradition as he had with his father…

But what he found was something quite extraordinary — a demand for an authentic, upscale, stylish yet traditional men’s grooming establishment.

Word-of-mouth spread quickly among Phoenix’s affluent. He had hit on something that was not only unique and desirable, but also a replicable formula for success.

Since opening V’s, many people have inquired about franchising the concept. Knowing that most of America lacked a well done authentic barbershop, V developed the V’s concept into one that could be opened in markets where men desire a first class grooming experience of their own. V’s now offers a franchise opportunity to select individuals who have the passion and commitment to spread the V’s brand of authenticity, quality and excellence that will allow for sustainable and profitable growth.


Not Just a Number on a Map

V’s is a boutique franchise opportunity in which you will be treated as we would want to be treated. V’s has no designs to conquer the world of men’s barbershops but rather we have aspirations that each location be part of a larger V’s family. That attention, care and passion for your V’s Barbershop is paramount to V’s corporate philosophy.


A Franchise System is Only as Strong as Its Franchisees.

A well run franchise reflects well on the entire system and a poorly run franchise affects the sales and reputation at not only that shop, but at all the shops. V’s Barbershop is looking for dedicated franchise owners who value the reputation that we’ve built for the high quality barbershop services available at all of our clean, handsome local barber shops. This does not mean that you have to be wealthy or have previous experience in running your own business. It means that you’re interested in starting a barber shop with a personal dedication to operating your local V’s Barbershop franchise as well or better than any other within the V’s family. It also means that you are willing to invest your own money, or invest together with a partner, to own one of America’s Best Barbershops®.


Don’t think of V’s Barbershop as just a franchise…
It’s every bit a Manchise® business opportunity.
