Scissors & Scotch Announces Partnership with Busch Global, LLC

Badass Barbershop Franchise Teams Up with JD Busch to Inspire System Growth, Stability and Profit

October 29, 2019 // // Kansas City, KS - Scissors & Scotch, where the traditional barber shop and modern spa services meet a man’s favorite watering hole, has announced that JD Busch of Busch Global, LLC, a company with a wealth of experience in franchising - at the franchisee, regional developer, and franchise consultant level - has joined the Scissors & Scotch franchisor/leadership team. With the move, Scissors & Scotch, the Kansas City Business Journal’s #1 fastest-growing private company, expands the team, resources and connections at the franchisor level with intentions of growing, and supporting, their regional and national footprint.

Founded by three college friends in Omaha, NE, Scissors & Scotch started with one shop and six employees in 2015. In the four years since, Scissors & Scotch has re-invented the traditional men’s grooming experience across the Midwest and beyond, recently opening the company’s eighth barber shop, and first location in Dallas-Fort Worth. With support from fantastic partners like Busch Global, LLC, Scissors & Scotch plans to open 20 new shops in 2020 and over 100 by 2022.

“We’re thrilled to partner with JD and the Busch Global team,” said Erik Anderson, co-founder and managing member of Scissors & Scotch Franchising, LLC. “Their values, strategic vision and passion for creating a top-notch customer experience align perfectly with the Scissors & Scotch culture.”

“The wealth of franchising experience the Busch Global team brings will help improve our unit economics as we quickly accelerate our expansion efforts,” added Anderson. “It’s a win-win for all of our franchise partners because the Busch Global team will provide the support and knowledge typically only found with established franchisors who have decades of experience.”

As Chief Energy Officer of Busch Global, LLC, JD Busch works closely with the leadership teams of franchise clients. His focus is on delivering excellence, including driving the highest level of improved performance and profitability for franchisor organizations. The partnership with Busch Global, LLC will combine Scissors & Scotch’s impressive financial performance figures with the industry knowledge/ experience required to expand their national footprint with multiple-unit, multiple-location franchisees.

“Scissors & Scotch is a rapidly emerging brand with tremendous potential,” said Busch. “We’re excited to leverage our own expertise and connections to build on the momentum that’s already underway.”

At each Scissors & Scotch shop, the “old-school spirit of a barbershop with a new age twist” continues to evolve with haircuts, shaves, trims, waxing, spa services, along with shoeshines - and a complimentary beer, coffee or cocktail from the fully-stocked bar. The men’s grooming industry is booming with potential, and is in high demand, especially as the “brand of the man” continues to become a more important aspect of men’s lives.

While Scissors & Scotch has roots in the Midwest, major metropolitan areas including Atlanta, Chicago, Houston, Minneapolis, Phoenix and Seattle are on their shortlist for expansion, and according to Busch, the company is great fit for ambitious franchisees seeking to diversify their portfolio.

“These guys are reinventing the barbershop experience,” said Busch. “Scissors & Scotch is an exciting emerging brand that isn’t cutting corners. The men’s grooming industry is begging for a brand to get it right and Scissors and Scotch is ready to take advantage.”

On that note, the founders of Scissors & Scotch may say it best about their business and why they’re ready to take the world by storm.

“Everything comes back to our culture and core values,” said Anderson. “We’re not a salon. We’re not a clips joint. We’re not your run-of-the-mill barbershop. We’re everything you want your haircut to be, and then some. We’re all about the ‘look good, feel good’ approach…and enjoying a cocktail while you’re at it.”
