V's Barbershop Franchise Expansion Continues -- Fifth Location Opens in Chandler, Arizona

Scottsdale, AZ-Based Franchise V's Barbershop Continues Rapid Expansion With Opening of Fifth Location in Chandler, AZ -- Nostalgic Environment and Classic Service Offerings Appeal to Broad Demographics

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwire - October 4, 2007) - V's Barbershop® announces the grand opening of its fifth location in Chandler, AZ. From the authentic, old fashioned barber chairs to the classic pool table in the back, V's Barbershop continues to win clients' hearts with its nostalgia and service quality. The company continues to grow by doing what it does best -- namely, resurrecting the sights, sounds, and smells of the barbershop of days gone by and offering traditional barbershop services to its clients.

With personal care expenses growing at an estimated 9% to 10% a year and men's grooming expenditures also on the rise, the opportunity for V's Barbershop to continue its expansion couldn't be better.

V's Barbershop founder and CEO Jim Valenzuela remarks, "I have very fond memories of being a young boy going to the barbershop with my dad. Those trips to the barbershop, of being a boy among men, were like a rite of passage. The barbershop is unique in its ability to create a bond among people, to be the equalizer where doctor and plumber alike come together to discuss everything from sports and politics to current events. That's what V's Barbershop, with its traditional décor and upscale amenities, is all about -- bringing back that environment. Whether it's the sports memorabilia on the walls, a patron's personal relationship with his barber, or a father sharing the experience with his son, V's Barbershop tends to resonate with people on an emotional level. It's far more than just a haircut."

Located at 940 North 54th Street, the Chandler, AZ location of V's Barbershop is soon to be followed by several others, both inside and outside the state of Arizona. With two shops currently under development in Orange County, CA and significant interest building in the eastern states, the V's Barbershop concept is showing its appeal to potential franchisees and investors from coast to coast.
