And while the great haircuts and amenities (like TVs at every station) might get clients through the door, it’s that outstanding customer service that keeps them coming back.

Based on our expertise, establishing connections and crafting a distinctive customer journey stands as the most effective approach to boost recurring patrons and foster your enterprise.

It’s what made City Master Barbers a success from the start

It might sound simple, but to this point, it’s been a largely untapped market – how do we know?

Our clients have enthusiastically responded to our current outlets. Thanks to the surging local support, there’s already a demand for expanding further.

It’s why we’re so excited to develop our franchise brand.

We’re confident that our case studies speak for themselves.

Our two primary stores serve as exemplary demonstrations of the success attainable for a potential franchisee. The moment has come to embark on expansion.

city masters founder Renat

Our founder identified a void within the haircare market.
His vision encompassed a restructuring of the traditional barbershop model, integrating innovative concepts originating from the men's haircare and grooming sectors. This strategic approach aimed to amalgamate key elements from these diverse industries into a distinctive and all-encompassing haircare establishment.
It was determined that we would provide services associated with the beauty industry, yet still maintain the same high standards and evoke the classic, timeless ambiance of traditional barbershops. Thus, from the inception of this initial concept, where the realms of history and contemporary approaches intersected, City Masters Hair & Spa came into existence

The opportunity
is there,

let’s take that step together

City Master Barbers continues
the rich tradition of barbershops as a neighborhood hub.

This is a place where people come not just to get a haircut, but to see their favorite stylist and friends.
It’s a place to hang out and have fun.

In the increasingly isolated world we live in, City Master Barbers is about more than a haircut, it’s about creating an experience and forging relationships with the people around you.

Above all, it’s about having a good time and looking great.

Training is a huge part of the success of our franchisees.

That’s why we offer a detailed plan for giving our franchisees all the tools they need to succeed. It’s important to stay simple, which is why we break our training and onboarding down into two distinct phases.

We expect that after going through this training, our franchisees will know our business inside and out, from the administrative and operational side to sales and marketing. It’s designed to give you the means to succeed with your City Master Barbers franchise.

It’s important to stay simple, which is why we break our training and onboarding down into two distinct phases:


Training at a franchisor location

We bring our franchisee up-to-speed, working with them to better understand what an ideal location looks like for a potential City Master Barbers.

We then spend two weeks training at City Master Barbers HQ in New Jersey, four to eight weeks before the franchisee is scheduled to open for business. This includes administrative, operational, sales and marketing as well as liberal amounts of on-the-job training. This training is for the franchisee and up to one other team member.


Training at the franchisee location

On-site training with one of our experienced City Master Barbers team members during the week of commencement of operations.

Franchisees are also expected to attend up to two days of refresher/update training per year in up to two sessions. Space permitting, City Master Barbers will provide the opportunity to send additional franchisee personnel to these refresher trainings. This training is provided at no cost to you, but the franchisee is expected to pay for applicable travel, lodging, and out-of-pocket expenses.

Additional Support Programs

A member of the City Master Barbers field support staff will visit each franchisee according to the following schedule.

Additionally, we may also provide various online training and webinars as needed.

We want you to feel understood and be totally prepared to do business.

It’s our goal to give our franchisees the tools they need to succeed


Like any sound business, City Master Barbers is committed to building the right way – slowly. 

We believe that controlling growth allows us the unique ability to maintain and monitor the quality of our franchisees.

In the next five years, we expect to award only 51 franchisees.

Especially in these early years, it makes the most sense to focus primarily on major metropolitan areas with a high enough population density to give our franchisees the ability to succeed. 

Growing off an already strong marketing presence in these areas will allow franchisees to benefit from the brand recognition that City Master Barbers has cultivated.

Franchises will be placed in areas with at least 50,000 individuals and up to 100,000 individuals based on core demographics.


City Master Barbers franchisees have the opportunity for success because of our low opening costs and the ability to turn a profit.

When compared to other franchises, we offer extremely reasonable running costs. 

Our Franchise Fee is $30,000, with estimated startup costs as low as approximately $143,000.

We recommend that the franchisee take duration into account, as we offer a 10-year term with additional five- year renewals. 

We offer unlimited franchise renewals as long as franchisees continue to remain compliant with our terms and franchise guidelines.

We believe in fostering a good environment for achievement, and as such don’t require a renewal fee from our franchisees. We don’t want to create any barriers to renewal.
