After many years of dreaming to have this first barbershop, it has finally come true. We are proud to announce that “The Good Barbers” has opened its doors for the first time at Alfred-Escher Strasse 66, 8002 Zürich, and this marks the beginning of our story.
This dream involved many conversations, research and experience gained by working in some of the best barbershops located in Madrid, London and Zurich. We come from a family of entrepreneurs and have always had in mind that we should be taking risks whilst carefully deciding what the best business concept should be for this city that we call home.
We were clear that this business should be built with the following core foundations:
- Tailored experience
- Special care for the hygiene
- Relaxing environment
- Quality service, products and infrastructure
With that in mind, one of the most important next steps was to find the first location for our business, we wanted it to be in the city, with good light and in a vibrant area. This search was found to be very challenging as we were not able to offer to the landlords any past record of us being successful as a company, and therefore it was the step that took us the longest to achieve. Thankfully, our chance arrived, and we were able to find a dream location for our business, it had everything we were looking for and more! Two stories, corner location, business hub, floor to ceiling windows…
Once we were told we got this property, it was time to celebrate! But most importantly, it was time to start bringing to life all these concepts we had been discussing, creating, and modifying throughout these years. Thanks to all the preparation work we did; it was clear what the next steps were and how to execute them.
Not to bore you with many details, but just to name a few of the concepts we had to now bring to life: furniture, company creation, suppliers, point of sale, software, webpage, talent… It took us many hours of thinking and execution, but we had a goal in mind all along, and it was to open our doors on March 1st, 2022. With project management skills, help from our loved ones and huge amounts of effort, we finally made it! And what a joyful moment it was to see the first client going into the barbershop the first day…
We would like to take this opportunity, in our first blog post, to thank all of you who have supported us through this journey and also to all our clients who have been coming in or are planning to do so, and therefore giving us a chance. We know it’s challenging to trust a barbershop that has just opened with your hair, beard and facial needs and therefore why we are especially thankful to all of you.
For any new customers, there is a ongoing offer of 15% discount in your first booking when done online. This offer lasts until 15th April 2022 and includes all services we offer. Definitely an offer not to miss out and that hopefully will bring an extra incentive to you for trying us out. We will do our best to give you a unique service experience in the best barbershop environment you will find in town.
This is just the beginning of our dream, and we would love to continue sharing it with you all via our 1:1 appointments, social media (Instagram: the_good_barbers / Facebook: thegoodbarbersag) and through this blog.
Your barbershop of reference in Zürich,
The Good Barbers.
