Phoenix, AZ – February 19, 2008 – From the authentic, old fashioned barber chairs to the classic pool table in the back, V’s Barbershop Franchises continue to set themselves apart. With personal care and men’s grooming expenditures still on the rise, V’s heads into 2008 looking to take advantage of the trend and to expand the company’s market share.

V’s Barbershop founder and CEO, Jim Valenzuela, commented, “We’ve already experienced great success and traction with the brand, but it’s now time to take things to the next level. After extensively researching a number of small and large marketing and advertising firms, we made the decision to go with Zion & Zion. Among the deciding factors were the quality of Zion & Zion’s portfolio of previous ad work, their extensive PR and media connections, and their extreme responsiveness to our aggressive schedules.”

Zion & Zion CEO, Aric Zion, added, “We’re extremely pleased that V’s has decided to sign with us and take things up a notch. The nostalgia and richness of their brand gives us a lot to work with, and we’re looking forward to working with them to build their business across the U.S.”
