Bishops Barbershop Makes First Appearance At International Franchise Expo

Successful Portland-Based Chain Offers Opportunity to be Part of the $55 Billion Hair Care Industry

March 10, 2009 // Franchising.com // Portland, Ore., – Bishops Barbershop, cuts and colors for men and women, will make its first appearance at the International Franchise Expo, March 20-22 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington D.C., in booth #624. Since opening his first Bishops in 2001, Leo Rivera, founder, president and CEO, today operates six successful shops throughout Portland and is now offering franchise opportunities.

"In today's tough economy, the $55 billion hair care industry continues to thrive," said Rivera. "Bishops fills the niche between national chains, mom-and-pop shops, and high-end salons for Generations X, Y and Z, by delivering full-service quality at affordable prices in a fun, casual environment. We take customers on a walk-in only basis, so they can decide when to come in, and our a la carte menu of services lets them decide exactly what they want done and how much they want to spend. At Bishops, our customers leave satisfied with every aspect of their experience."

Each Bishops Barbershop creates its own unique atmosphere, featuring edgy artwork and posters on the walls, a mix of new and favorite tunes playing, and trend-setting stylists. Customers can choose from a variety of cut and color options, as well as a shampoo, blow dry, style, or hot towel shave, and those 21 and older are offered a free bottle of cold Miller High Life. KMS, Goldwell and Joe Grooming products, which can be found only at salons, are also available.

"The Bishops management team has many years of barbershop, retail and franchising experience, and we bring a hands-on approach to our training and field support of franchisees," Rivera said. "We work with our franchisees every step of the way in how to bring the Bishops experience to their particular markets so that they are building their own business while building our mutual brand."
