(Austin, Texas) As part of a video series highlighting the Entrepreneurial Spirit, Liberty Mutual Insurance highlights the co-owners of Bird’s Barbershop. Birds Barbershop is an independently-owned brand of barbershops founded in Austin, Texas. The first shop was opened in 2006 by Jayson Rapaport and Michael Portman with a goal of affordable salon quality for both men and women in a casual, rock club environment. The shops are sponsored by Shiner Beer and every customer gets a beer with a cut.
Both owners talk about their motivation to open a barbershop (which is now franchised and has over 100 employees) as well as the challenges of business success.
