Westpac Directory of Franchising


Step into the fast-growing men's grooming industry! We're looking for people and leadership skills above industry knowledge. Our tried and tested blueprint and ongoing support will help you deliver world class experience in your local community, while building capital value in your own business.

Established in 2015 Barber Shop Company has remained an industry disruptor, taking male grooming to the next level as the fastest growing barber franchise in the country. Six years and 25 stores later, we are proud to deliver a world class experience for every client who comes through our doors, leaving them feeling fresh and looking their best. 

Our success is a result of having the right people, empowered by a tried and tested system that works to achieve profitable results. You don’t need to be already in the industry to own a BarberShopCo store - we believe people from all walks of life have the ability to run their own successful business with the right people skills, leadership and ongoing support behind them. 

We can’t achieve our vision without talented and driven leaders that share our passion for client experience and who can build a strong sense of community. As an owner-operator you’ll enjoy the benefits of a business model which has already been set up, with operational training, development, recruitment and marketing systems built in around you. We’ll support you every step of the way in the successful launch of your store and beyond.
