Jonpaul's is a full-service gentleman's barber shop dedicated to consistently providing world class men's grooming services to our clients, high quality products while furnishing an enjoyable relaxing atmosphere at an acceptable price/value relationship.
Our Motto: "World Class Service Begins Here"
The timing is right for this venture. Patiently searching for the last few years for a similar highly recognized existing business in a prime location, was unsuccessful. We therefore decided to build one from the ground up.
After spending several months searching for a high-end exclusive gentleman's barber shop to purchase, the owners decided to start an exclusive barber shop - men's grooming services from the ground up. The start-up capital will be used for the design, leasehold improvements, and equipment for the shop. The start-up cash has been marked for the estimated amount needed to cover operational expenses for the first two months.
Jonpaul's is located in The Mall, a 160,000 foot shopping and entertainment center in Gigaburb. The suite is 1,950 sq. ft at $24.50/sq. ft. with a 3-year lease. This site is a very high profile area with easy access and ample parking.
The Mall is anchored by Regal Cinema, the largest theater chain in the Gigaburb market with a 16-screen, state of the art complex. In addition to specialty retail and service shops within the center, there is a food pavilion anchored by Starbucks, Macaroni Grill, Garrison's, and Rio Bravo. Other tenants include Ben & Jerry's, Las Vegas Golf, specialty furniture, boutiques, antiques, and specialty children shops.
The Mall is located on the corner of a highly traveled State Highway and a Metro Road in the high growth, affluent area of Gigaburb. The Mall's primary trade area will serve the burgeoning country club communities and exclusive neighborhoods located within a fifteen-minute drive from the site. According to Equifax National Decision Systems, the primary trade area in 2000 had a population of 317,931 that is projected to reach 358,716 by 2005.
