The new year is upon us and I can’t help reflecting on where the shop has been, where the shop is at, and where I want to take metro FOR MEN. Where have I been with metro FOR MEN? I’ve taken it from a failing salon with a no-quality reputation to a million dollar salon that has been recognized as one of The Fastest Growing Salons in America for the past 4 years, Best Barber, Best Men’s Haircut, and Best Shave. metro FOR MEN is now known for its quality service and friendly staff. That shift is what I’d been working day and night to obtain for the past 6 years. Where is metro FOR MEN today? The shop survived very well during this economic down turn and have added employee benefits and hired new staff during 2010. Our nail and waxing services have finally began to pay for themselves, with our hair services still being our driver. The current staff at metro FOR MEN is the best we’ve ever had. They want to work for a shop that is committed to its mission, future and reputation. Where is metro FOR MEN going in 2011? While I can only speculate, but I will continue to reach for the stars. I get asked every day whether I will open more salons, franchise, and the like. My answer is always…”if it is meant to be–it will be”. As the owner of the shop, I’ve always maintained the position of controlling growth until the flagship store is near perfection. We aren’t there yet, but are closer than we’ve ever been.
Until then, I will continue my mission to establish metro FOR MEN as the leader in men’s grooming. I was a participant in a class a while back that still continues to stick with me today. This class covered the cycle of business. That in the first years well-planned businesses grow and grow, then growth levels, and in year seven the business either reinvents to grow again or fails. metro FOR MEN is on year six and we have felt the plateau (although the economy didn’t help matters). I stay connected with what is going on in men’s trends and strategically place new products and services into our menu when I feel the time is right. In order to keep metro FOR MEN on the forefront of men’s grooming, I’ve added to our menu:
SERVICES: 5 min steam towel treatment, men’s skin detail, men’s anti-aging treatment, eye smoothing treatment, and a new mask treatment for the hands and feet designed to maintain moisture during the winter weather.
PRODUCTS: Stainless Steel razors and shave brushes, SuperSmile teeth whitening products, razor blade sharpeners by EverBlade, and the best reviewed nose/ear hair trimmer.
It’s a new year—time for a new and improved metro menu. We look forward to seeing you in 2011 and wish you a prosperous new year!
I want to thank KTLA and Allie Mac Kay for contacting me to open up our shop to them to host a segment on men’s grooming. On Tuesday, September 21, 2010 at 4:30 am, the KTLA van pulled in and got straight to work for the first airing at 5:40am. I would also like to thank my staff who got up EXTRA early to be at the shop providing services to guests. Thank you Mackenzie, Joel, Michelle, Elaine, Kim, Claire, Alyse, and April. This could not have happened with out you. Thank you to our customers who showed up that early and stayed for 2 hours to participate in this event. Thank you Mark, Tom, Jim, Patrick, Mark, and Michael. These customers braved showing Southern California they wax their noses, ears and back and coloring their grey hair. Having Allie Mac Kay at metro FOR MEN was a blast!
What has happened since Tuesday? Our phones have been going crazy with new customers scheduling appointments, we have new followers on Twitter, the shop has a lot of new fans on Facebook, and most of all the staff at metro FOR MEN is excited with all the attention. I cannot express my gratitude enough. To my blog readers, please watch KTLA morning news and especially Allie Mac Kay (www.KTLA.com) and tell them you appreciated the segment on metro FOR MEN. Didn’t see the episode? Here’s the links:
