A Modern Old Twist on an Idea BY JODI TUCKER W hen I walk into my MVP Modern Barbers salon, I can’t help but think of the day I applied for a job as a hairstylist with Paul Clissold, the franchise’s co-founder. Paul had yet to open the doors to 26 his store, which is located in Kelowna, B.C., but I was sold from the moment I walked in and saw the sports memorabilia, leather club chairs and flat-screen TVs. It didn’t feel like a typical barber shop, but rather gave off an easy-going and relaxed vibe. Needless to say, I got the job, and five years later, I’m an MVP franchisee myself and co-owner of the south Surrey, B.C., location with my father Nicholas. The ‘man-cave’ ambiance of the salon hasn’t changed, which suits our clients just fine— Canadian Business Franchise | March 2015 CBF_March2015_B.indd 26 2015-02-03 12:26 PM
