We offer franchisees the opportunity to profit from our experience, industry knowledge, and business expertise.

We are a business that prides itself on its reputation, and we are passionate about being the best in the industry, by offering customers a fantastic service experience; rather than just great haircuts.

All of our barbers offer honest advice and banter in equal measure, which ensures Everyman Barbers is the the place-to-be for the style conscious modern man.

Super Six Frequently asked questions
1. What experience will I need to take on a Everyman Barbers franchise?
No hairdressing or barbering experience is required, at Everyman we believe that passion and enthusiasm are key ingredients in steering a business from startup to success. We will train you in every aspect of the business and will spend time with you at your store to support you in all areas of the business, especially when it comes to barber recruitment.
2. Will Franchising suit me?
Weighing the benefits of owning a franchise as opposed to your own start up business should begin with a self-assessment. Are you able to follow a prescribed system? Or do you need the freedom to innovate and experiment? Do you need total independence in every aspect? Or can you follow a ready-made system 100 percent?
When you start your own business, you’re in control of every detail. With a franchise business, you sign an agreement to follow our tried and tested successful formula. We award a license to use our brand name along with our entire system that have been honed and finely tuned over many years.
Yes, you control your store in terms of the culture and values you set, and who you hire or fire, but you must follow our operating system.
3. Why Choose an Everyman Franchise?
We have opened very successful Everyman Barbershops in some of the largest cities in the UK. We don’t just send you a booklet and expect you to do it from that…we hold your hand every step of the way, and show you how to run and grow a successful, profitable business.
4. How much will I need to invest?
You can set up your own Everyman Barbers franchise for as little as £50,000, depending on the store’s location and size, with the remaining investment being obtained from high street banks with the help of the Everyman team.
5. What is the risk?
There is less risk opening a franchised business due to the experienced business support network that you gain. When you start your own business it takes time to build a client base and local reputation. When you advertise a known brand name into your new market, customers come ready-made, and the cash starts flowing faster. You will be given a complete shopping list of exactly what you need to set up shop, allowing you to open for business more quickly than if you had to research it all on your own.
More than half of new independent businesses fail within the first year. That’s why our experience in finding the correct location with the most suitable premises, and our tried and tested business model will help ensure your success. Excuse the cliche, but your success is our success.
6. What are the current franchise fees?
The current franchise fee is £20,000 + VAT. The management service fees are 10% of gross turnover.
