Floyd’s 99 Barbershop

A hair salon franchise with buzz-worthy performance

When brothers Paul, Bill and Rob O’Brien founded Floyd’s 99 Barbershop in 1999, they did so because not only is the hair care industry tremendously resilient in any economy, there was also an underserved segment: that space between high-end independent salons and discount barbershops.

A hair salon franchise with buzz-worthy performance

When brothers Paul, Bill and Rob O’Brien founded Floyd’s Barbershop in 1999, they did so because not only is the hair care industry tremendously resilient in any economy, there was also an underserved segment: that space between high-end independent salons and discount barbershops.

In franchising, particularly, the discount cut shops have been known for a get ‘em in, get ‘em out philosophy. Speed and low-cost cuts. No-frills atmosphere. The shop you go into in Denver looks the same as the one in Dallas.

That’s just not the case for our Greenwood Village, Colorado-based Floyd’s 99 Barbershop franchise.



Floyd’s 99 Barbershop franchise always puts the client first, and we are dedicated to providing premium service at an affordable price. The O’Briens saw an underserved market they knew they could dominate, and today Floyd’s 99 Barbershop is a standout that lies between independents and discount chains. 

Franchise partners enjoy a high average ticket -- it ranges between $36-$48, depending on the market -- as well as high repeat business. The haircut cycle for men is about 4-6 weeks, and with our customer-focused convenience we can take both recurring appointments and walk-ins. Our broad array of services, from cuts and facial grooming to waxing and color, paired with our proprietary and complimentary lines of men’s grooming products, allows franchisees multiple revenue streams.

We offer strong ROI in a growing, recession-resistant industry and an experienced bench of franchising experts to help support your business. Best of all, we offer a chance to work with creative people in a close-knit environment that’s really fun.

“The nice thing about this industry is if you're good at being a people person and you're good at managing people, then that's it. That's all you need,” says Colorado-based multi-unit owner Jay Palmer, whose background is in hotel restaurant management. “That is the biggest thing that you have to do. I really enjoy it.

Where the magic happens

The franchise partners who experience the most success with Floyd’s 99 Barbershop are, like Palmer, experienced entrepreneurs. Hair industry experience isn’t necessary but a service mindset is. The barbers and stylists we’ll help you hire are the ones with experience -- they’re licensed, and Floyd’s sees to it that they have access to the latest in technical education through our now-online Floyd’s Academy. We do find that franchisees and entrepreneurs from the hospitality industry are a particularly good fit for our business.

We are currently looking for multi-unit investors who can help us develop new markets coast-to-coast. Franchising is the future for our chain of 120+ barbershops.



“The top-performing franchise owners that we have right now are service-focused and deliver an expert cut with an amplified experience to every client. They are performance-driven with a strong infrastructure within their team,” says Senior Director of Franchising Joe Zemla. “When you go into a new market, the magic really starts happening when you open up shops No. 3 and 4 because now it’s a recognizable brand in that market. It’s not just this one-off. And now you've established the infrastructure to more efficiently manage your shops.”

How we help you attract our target clients

Our target client is a male between the ages of 18 and 40, although it’s not unusual to see women, toddlers and senior citizens in our shops as well. Floyd’s franchises tend to perform best in communities of 100,000 or more in neighborhoods where the average household income is above $75,000.

We offer specific tactics for the first 12 months of your franchise operation to help you attract and retain customers via our local shop marketing guide, which is based on best practices honed over many years. Our marketing experts will show you the best ways to form beneficial relationships in your community, how to get involved and stay engaged, how to leverage non-traditional media to help promote your business.

Always in demand

The hair salon industry is always in demand, regardless of the economy. With Floyd’s footprint, which is typically 1,200-1,500 square feet and allows for approximately 24 licensed barbers and stylists, you’ll have much greater earnings potential than smaller hair franchises. Unlike many barbershops, we also provide services for women and children. Our premium service at an affordable price makes it easier to compete with discount hair franchises as well as higher-end salons.
