Kennedy’s Logo

Kennedy’s All-American Barber Club®, an upscale men’s barbershop franchise, is currently offering financial incentives to Veterans to become new Kennedy’s franchise owners.

Orlando, Fla. – July 8, 2009Kennedy’s All-American Barber Club® is an upscale men’s Barbershop concept that operates membership plans allowing unlimited haircuts and shaves at various price structures. The Clubs are designed in the upscale, classic tradition of America’s bygone years, when men took a break from the stresses of the outside world to enjoy a high quality grooming experience at the neighborhood barbershop.

One of the ways that Kennedy’s All-American Barber Club® is reaching out to possible new franchisees is by taking part in “The Veterans Transition Franchise Initiative” (VetFran), a voluntary effort of International Franchise Association (IFA) member-companies, that is designed to encourage franchise ownership among honorably discharged veterans by offering financial incentives. 

Kennedy’s is offering veterans 20% off the standard franchise fee for single-unit Clubs, multi-unit Clubs or Master Franchise Areas.  This means a savings of between $7,500 and $40,000, depending on the type of franchise purchase.

Kennedy’s All-American Barber Club™ has received the distinct honor of being a “Featured Franchisor” in the program.  Out of thousands of franchises, both nationally and internationally, Kennedy’s All-American Barber Club™ is one of only approximately 250 chosen to participate in VetFran.

Chris Hurn, Tony Zara, JW Dicks, Esq. and Nick Nanton, Esq. launched Kennedy’s All-American Barber Club® along with its corresponding website, in late 2008.  There are currently franchise opportunities available in nearly 50 states, and the Kennedy’s team is offering these incentives to help honorably discharged Veterans of the United States Armed Forces integrate themselves back into civilian society.  Thirty new Kennedy’s locations have been sold in the past six weeks in such places as Rockville, Md., Nashville, Tenn. and Manhattan in New York City.

“We feel that starting a Kennedy’s franchise can be one of the best ways for our veterans to start new careers and can be a great way to continue to provide for their families after serving our country,” said Kennedy’s CEO, Chris Hurn.

“It’s the least we can do for the bravest among us who have sacrificed so much for our country,” Hurn continued.
