About V's Barbershop Franchise LLC

When Jim “V” Valenzuela opened the first V’s Barbershop & Shoeshine in 1999, he simply wanted an old fashioned barbershop to take his son for a haircut and to enjoy the barbershop tradition as he had with his father…

Word-of-mouth spread quickly among Phoenix’s affluent. Jim had hit on something that was not only unique and desirable, but also a replicable formula for success.

Since opening the first V’s Barbershop, many people have inquired about franchising the concept. Knowing that most of America lacked a well done authentic barbershop, Jim Valenzuela developed the V’s concept into one that could be opened in markets where men desire a first class grooming experience of their own. V’s Barbershop now offers a franchise opportunity to select individuals who have the passion and commitment to spread the V’s brand of authenticity, quality and excellence that will allow for sustainable and profitable growth.

From the real barber chairs to the hot lather old-fashioned shave with hot towels & the relaxing massage you enjoy before you leave, V’s has brought back the best of the old & set a new standard for men’s barbershops. America’s Best Barbershop!! V’s Barbershop was inspired by foFranchises Under Jim Valenzuela’s fond memories of going to barber shops with his father, and his desire to recreate that experience with his own son. He opened his first shop in 1999, and in 2005, he began franchising. V’s Barbershops offer hair cutting, shaving, massages and facials.


At V’s Barbershop, we bring you a unique franchise opportunity where the nostalgia of yesteryear is met with a modern twist. Imagine an authentic barbershop with real barber chairs and professional barbers. Where men and boys can enjoy an old-fashioned hot lather, a relaxing neck massage, a straight edge razor shave or maybe just a good old-fashioned, quality haircut. Since 1999, V’s has been setting a new standard for barbershops and growing our franchise family… one location at a time.


V’s is a boutique franchise opportunity in which you will be treated as we would want to be treated. V’s has no designs to conquer the world of men’s barbershops but rather we have aspirations that each location be part of a larger V’s family. That attention, care and passion for your V’s Barbershop is paramount to V’s corporate philosophy.
