Tommy Guns New Zealand

Now franchising


Not your average Barbershop

With multiple franchise brands out there making promises, choosing the right franchise can be a challenge. We are confident that you will see we are different from other brands in every way. Tommy Gun’s isn’t your typical barbershop, and we’re definitely not your average franchisor.

The numbers speak for themselves

How we support...

In-house Real Estate

With access to the best demographics information and connections to a network of brokers country-wide, our leasing team has the resources to find the best location while negotiating the lowest costs-all while keeping the process quick and easy.

Operations Teams

Each barbershop is assigned a dedicated Shop Support Manager – your go-to operations guru – to help owners master operational tasks, optimise business performance, and control costs while driving maximum in-shop efficiency.


Our omni-channel approach leverages the power and reach of online tools to provide a customer experience that nurtures continued loyalty. Our social platforms, website, and loyalty program collectively foster recognition and client retention.

...Your Success


A dedicated Distribution Centre based in Coolum, QLD, Australia allows us to negotiate distribution rights with top brands around the world, increasing margins that are passed along to shop owners. Additionally, weekly ordering drives down inventory holding costs while keeping shops consistently stocked.


Extensive and tireless marketing includes reaching customers and potential customers via email, SMS, social media, print, and through professional photography and video. Our substantial resources power national, regional, and local campaigns to keep our Barbershops top-of-mind in every market.


We continue to lead our sector with best in-class technology. Online booking and our check-in + mobile app consistently manage barbershop queues while storing guest history and taking payment, streamlining your in-shop operations.


The simple answer is no. Our Business Partners come to us from a wide range of backgrounds and industries. We look for leadership experience and a solid understanding of the importance of operational excellence. We couple that with all the tools and training you will need to succeed.
Extensive research is completed by Tommy Gun’s Franchising and Leasing department to determine the most optimal locations. The research process includes consideration of market demographics along with success of other retailers in the trading area.
The Tommy Gun’s Franchise Fee is $30,000. 6.6% of your gross sales are collected as a royalty fee and 2.7% is collected and redistributed towards brand development programs.
Simply complete the Inquiry Form and submit it to us. Following your application, a Tommy Gun’s representative will contact you to begin the qualification process.
The level of income that a Franchisee earns is dependent on a number of factors, including the Franchisee’s level of involvement in the operation, sales performance, cost controls, fixed overheads, location and market.
