Barbershop Franchise Kennedy’s All-American Barber Club™ Approved For Placement On The SBA’s National Franchise Registry

Kennedy’s All-American Barber Club™, a reinvented old-world style barbershop franchise, has just been approved to be on the SBA’s National  Franchise Registry, offering expedited SBA loan processing. 


Orlando, Fla. – March 5, 2009 –Kennedy’s All-American Barber Club™, a new barbershop franchise concept that uses a patent-pending membership-based system to add recurring revenue opportunities for its franchisees, has recently been approved for placement on the SBA Franchise Registry.  This placement means that the Kennedy’s All-American Barber Club™ concept is approved for any type of U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) financing programs.  These include SBA 7(a), SBA 504, Patriot Express Loan and others (when applicable.) 

In addition, the stimulus bill, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), just passed by Congress and signed by President Obama made some significant changes in regard to the SBA’s financing programs.  Two examples include the reduction of guarantee and lender fees for SBA loans and $225 million for a new “Business Stabilization Program.” 

Kennedy’s CEO Chris Hurn said, “With the placement of Kennedy’s on the SBA Franchise Registry, along with the changes provided in the ARRA, we are certain that now is one of the best times to start a new franchise.  We are extremely confident in our barbershop concept, and are doing everything we can to make purchasing one of our franchises as easy and successful as possible. 


Kennedy’s All-American Barber Club™ is a member of the International Franchise Association (IFA) as well as VetFran.  Along with offering franchises to the general public, VetFran allows Kennedy’s to give special franchising opportunities to American Veterans who have been honorably discharged.
