This month, we are thrilled to feature our tenant Barber Jon’s World Famous Barber Shop in El Dorado Hills!
The World Famous Barber Shop is a traditional, old-school style barber shop offering haircuts to all. Their usual clientele is local gentlemen and kids, but women stop in occasionally as well! The business owner, Barber Jon, recently sat down with Aborn Powers to talk about his local business in El Dorado County and how he gives back.
It all started when Jon, a 3rd generation San Franciscan, was driving from Rocklin in his red convertible and happened to come across a Barber Shop. He left his business card, wondering if something would ever come out of it. A year later, he received a call asking if he would like to purchase the Barber Shop, and he accepted! Aborn Powers then helped him find the perfect location in El Dorado Hills to best serve the community, and the rest is history.
Barber Jon says, “It’s the power of why.” Anyone can cut hair but he does it because of his love for people.
For Jon, as a local business in El Dorado Hills, it is extremely important to give back to the community. The Barber Shop is proud to do a wide range of charity work, such as giving complimentary haircuts to single mothers, Powerhouse Ministries in Folsom and an Alzheimer’s Center in Folsom just to name a few. Jon says, “What is most profound to me, is: over the years what I’ve seen when a community comes together for the greater good of all – that’s when you see things happen.”
Always on the cutting edge, the World Famous Barber Shop is not only one of the first Barber Shops to accept Bitcoin as a form of payment, but also one of the first El Dorado Hills businesses to as well! He’s created a champion of the local El Dorado Hills area and the shop a mainstay of the local community.
