Floyd's Barbershop Opens in Lexington, KY

Floyd’s 99 Barbershop Opens Third Shop in Lexington

Floyd’s 99 Barbershop (Floyd’s), a unique, full-service haircare franchise specializing in expert services in an amplified environment, is set to debut its newest franchisee-owned and operated store in Lexington on March 31. Located at 2901 Richmond Road, Suite 120, Floyd’s is dedicated to providing the community with expert-quality haircare services at affordable prices. This will be the third Floyd’s location in Lexington. The two other Lexington shops are located at 561 S Broadway and 124 Malabu Drive.

To celebrate the opening of the new salon, Floyd’s 99 Barbershop will be offering a promotion of $10 off each haircut from March 31 through April 7.

The new Floyd’s location in Lexington will be owned and operated by entrepreneur, Jay Palmer. Palmer has spent his entire career working in the service industry, working in restaurants and hotels when he was young. Palmer was able to apply skills learned while working for a restaurant franchise to become a key contributor in the brand’s nationwide franchise development, turning it into the widely-known hotspot it is today.

After 14 years, Palmer decided to leave the restaurant business, leading him to discover the opportunity to franchise with Floyd’s. Having previously owned a salon with his wife, Palmer fell in love with the Floyd’s brand. Palmer is now the proud owner of 14 Floyd’s locations throughout Colorado and Kentucky with plans to open more in the future.

“Working in the service industry my entire career, I have always been passionate about people and providing them with high-quality services at an affordable price,” said Palmer. “Floyd’s allows me to follow my passion by letting me bring this unique haircare concept to several communities and I look forward to continuing to serve the Lexington community.

Floyd’s 99 Barbershop of Lexington will bring an energetic vibe to the area, with its signature, hand-curated poster wall of musical greats throughout the decades, and its custom radio station featuring upbeat music with a special emphasis on local artists. Floyd’s provides clients with a full range of services including haircuts, shaving, color, waxing, deep conditioning treatments and styling. As well as providing traditional hair services, Floyd’s is known for its iconic barbershop straight-razor neck shave with hot lather and steamed towels and a complimentary shoulder massage after each service.

“The new Floyd’s location in Lexington is an excellent addition to the Floyd’s family,” said Joe Zemla, Senior Director of Franchising for Floyd’s 99 Barbershop. “We are excited for Jay and his new Lexington location and look forward to empowering new clients through exceptional haircare in the Lexington community.”

Since then, Floyd’s has expanded to 127 shops spanning across 15 states, and remains a family-owned company to this day, as well as the segment leader in the industry.
