Nick and Linda Alter, new owners of Roosters Men’s Grooming Center (MGC) at 1920 West Eldorado Parkway in McKinney, give credit to the store’s friendly stylists and barbers for winning them over to become franchise owners.
Following Nick Alter’s retirement from Verizon, the couple had been searching for a business that they could work in together. According to the Alters, it was Roosters’ unique concept of combining a traditional barbershop experience with the latest hair care techniques for men and boys that attracted them.
Rather than open a new Roosters’ location, the Alters found an already established store to renovate and manage.
“The receptionist won me over as soon as we walked in the door,” said Linda Alter. “We are so fortunate to have a longtime staff that is well liked by our customers and well connected to the local community.”
To celebrate the store’s new renovations, Roosters will host a ribbon cutting ceremony with the McKinney Chamber at 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday, August 16, 2011. Refreshments will be served as well as the opportunity to learn more about Roosters’ products and services. The public is welcome to attend.
Customers are invited to relax in plush oversized leather barber chairs and select from a variety of custom services including precision haircuts and shaves with hot steam towels, deep cleansing facial massages and moisturizing lotions.
The Alters are continuing the McKinney store tradition of greeting each customer with an ice cold drink in a mug.
“We serve lots of business people here, but we’re all still family,” added Alter.
