Not Your Average Barber Shop

We were excited to learn all about 180 Barbershop and how they have gotten where they are today, so we sat down with the Co-Owner (with Jason Carrillo), Thomas Mitchell.

The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that makes 180 Barbershop stand apart from its competitors. Thomas told us that they have an all-star team, so it doesn’t matter which chair you sit in, you will still get exceptional service. Their space is clean, efficient, and professional. He told us that their business name refers to the turnaround experience, from coming in, then being seen and feeling better to finally, walking out of the shop with your chin up and a rush of confidence.

Building Success And Giving Back

180 Barbershop has earned a wonderful reputation, and Thomas said that a lot of their focus has been on building a large, loyal client base. When we asked what they have done to market and grow their company, he said that word of mouth has been huge for them. They also have a presence on social media.

180 Barbershop has also been recognized in their community, where they are always looking for ways to give back. Thomas said:

“We offer free cuts in the community for the homeless, as well as back to school cuts for kids. If there’s any chance to volunteer to help those less fortunate, we try to take it.”

Of course, 180 Barbershop has also benefited from online reviews. We asked Thomas what their secret has been for getting those reviews, and he said:

“All of our reviews are organic. The level of professionalism and the extra effort to greet and say goodbye to clients is clear. We are very intentional about the conversations we have with clients and are very personable with them. We have a clean shop, good music, and an easy booking system.”

There are many businesses out there that are looking to build as impressive a reputation as 180 Barbershop has managed to. We asked if Thomas could share any expert advice with these companies. Here’s what he had to say:

“Set a vision, then a standard. You should have a vision of what you want to do and accomplish, then set a standard that you are always pushing to uphold. It is easy to get complacent, but you should want to chase after that standard every day and hold up a level of expertise and excellence.”

Congratulations to 180 Barbershop for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and special thanks to Thomas for taking the time to speak with us!
