Will MVP Modern Barbers assist me in finding a location?

Absolutely! We use a combination of local leasing agents and our in-house expertise and your local knowledge to help you find the perfect location for your barbershop. Each location is then custom designed, incorporating local sports into the design. We encourage you to add your personal touch to the décor.

How much personal investment is required?

To open a single MVP Modern Barbers location, you must have a minimum of $100,000 in upfront liquid capital and a net worth of at least $500,000. We want you to be well positioned for success and financial stability is a big factor.

How much time should I dedicate to the Barbershop?

The success of your MVP Modern Barbers barbershop is directly related to the time you invest in managing and promoting your business. Whether you’re a trained stylist or barber working full time or hiring staff to manage daily operations, your involvement impacts your shop’s success.

How long does it take to open a Barbershop?

Typically, it takes about 4 months from signing and paying for your MVP Modern Barbers franchise. The timeline depends on location availability, local building requirements, and contractor availability for the build-out.

What are the ongoing royalties and advertising fees?

We have a new Flat Rate royalty system and have eliminated national advertising fees.

With any franchise, you will be required to pay a royalty and several other fees for software, marketing etc. Typically, these will be a percentage of your gross sales, often totaling 10% or more.

With a percentage royalty your payment will always grow as your sales grow. At MVP Modern Barbers we strongly believe that if you work hard to grow your business (with our help!) you deserve to keep more of what you earn. That’s why we cap our royalty. You can continue to grow safe in the knowledge that your payment won’t go up.

In addition, we’ll give you access to our POS/CRM software system with no additional fee.

And finally, we believe that your marketing dollars are best spent in your local market generating customers for your barbershop, so we don’t require a contribution to an ad fund. As we grow, our franchise owners may elect to establish a national ad fund in the future.
