Floyds 99 Barbershop–Something Different

| March 14, 2012 | 0 Comments

In 1999,  brothers Paul, Rob and Bill O’Brien (originally from Bowie, Maryland) drew up the plans for a new barbershop concept that would stand out from the rest of the industry, provide an outstanding workplace environment for barbers and hairstylists, and deliver an unbeatable customer experience. Now, Floyds 99 Barbershop is open for business in Westfield Annapolis.

They made the decision to diversify into the hair care industry after researching several business opportunities in both the restaurant and hair care industries. They felt they could have the greatest opportunity for success by taking the experience they had gained from years of operating their concession business and applying it to a unique niche in the highly competitive industry of hair care. The advantages the brothers felt they had for success were their strong operating background, dedication to customer service and their attitude toward the value of their employees to the business.

In February 2001, the first Floyd’s 99 Barbershop opened in downtown Denver, introducing customers to the novel idea of getting a haircut at a reasonable price while having a pretty good time at it. Today, there are 57 stores with more in the works.

Floyd’s 99 shops mix its excellent service with the new style appeal of an experienced, talented staff with unique and fun personalities to match the Floyd’s 99 attitude that keeps their loyal customers coming back. Surrounded with posters of hot bands and music artists plastered on the walls, customers can watch one of the plasma TV’s or log on to the Internet at one of the shop’s customer computers, all while taking in the music on Floyd’s 99’s own radio station. Then to top it all off, every customer receives the Floyd’s 99 signature hot lather neck shave* and aaahhh…shoulder massage.

Floyd’s 99 approach is to keep services simple, focusing on traditional hair cuts, styling and color services for both men and women and men’s specialty barbering (face and head shaves). Haircuts range between $15 and $34 and all services are guaranteed.
