GLASTONBURY, CT--(Marketwire - Jul 25, 2011) - With welcoming support from the Glastonbury Chamber of Commerce and local businesses, Roosters Men's Grooming Center (MGC) recently hosted its official grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony at Eric Town Square. Located at 120 Hebron Avenue in Glastonbury, Roosters MGC is a rapidly growing national franchise that provides personal grooming services for men and boys. The Glastonbury store is the second franchise to open in Connecticut.
The grand opening celebration included demonstrations of Roosters' hair care services, refreshments and a gift basket drawing with prize contributions from Blue Heron Fine Wines, Villarina's Italian Market, Designed Training and Elizabeth Grady.
"We greatly appreciate the warm welcome and assistance that we've received from Glastonbury Chamber members and staff, and from neighboring businesses," said Tammy Clark, Roosters' franchise owner. "We look forward to participating in this wonderful community through a variety of alliances with local businesses, service organizations and non-profits."
Beginning in August, Roosters will offer a back-to-school special and a portion of the store's sales will be donated to the Chamber's scholarship program that gives an annual award to a Glastonbury High School senior who is planning on continuing his or her education in business.
Clark, who has a multi-faceted business background, shared that Roosters' philosophy of delivering exceptional customer service attracted her to become a franchise owner.
Gina Yost, who has more than 26 years in the hair care industry, is the store manager at Eric Town Square and oversees a team of experienced full- and part-time stylists.
