When we first opened our shop, almost 7 years ago, we had no business plan, no growth plan, no financial predictions, no targets, no ambitons of grandeur – We simply wanted to do what we love to do, with people we love to spend time with, in a place that represented the things we stood for.

We made absolutley no money in those first few years. We made EVERY possible mistake we could make. We fell hard, and we fell over and over and over again! –  But, we learned a LOT – A lot about ourselves, our industry, who we wanted to be, what we wanted to represent, and, perhaps most importantly of all, we learned who we were not!!

From a basement store with one chair and no customers, we have somehow grown into an 8 chair shop, serving 500 customers a week, with 13 full-time family members, all earning their living under the King Koby banner – Of this we are extremely proud. We are a product of the people we have surrounded ourselves with, and we are surrounded by some of the finest people you could ever hope to meet.

We did not build a business – We built a family, and that underpins EVERYTHING we do here.

Next month marks the next step in our journey – We will be opening our second store in the incredible city of York.

Brand new store – 6 barbers – Same Ethos – Same vibe – Same integrity – Same quality – Same voice – Same principles – Different city!!!
