YEC Member Company The Gents Place Launches National Franchise Program

YEC member company The Gents Place, led by founder and president Ben Davis, launched its national franchise program on June 13, 2016.

The Gents Place, founded in 2008 in Frisco, TX, is an ultra-premium men's grooming and lifestyle club designed to be complementary to businessmen's lifestyles. The Gents Place believes in helping men look and feel their most confident, because confident men change the world. Offering full salon and spa services, members can enjoy anything from a haircut and shave to a massage. Currently, The Gents Place has over 2,300 members.

"Male grooming is a $5+ billion industry and The Gents Place prides itself on offering a world-class menu of services to help men look and feel their most confident best," said Davis in PR Newswire. "As the industry continues to grow, now is the ideal time for us to grow our presence nationwide through franchising."

The Gents Place announced the launch of its national franchise program and the formation of The Gents Place Franchising, LLC in June. In the next five years, they plan to open 150 franchised locations nationwide. They currently have opportunities in markets including Texas, Florida, California and New York.

Emmitt Smith, the NFL’s all-time leading rusher and celebrity, is a co-owner in TGP Franchising and will be offering the franchise opportunity to his personal friends and connections.

Elevated Brands, a brand management and development company, is backing The Gents Place to help grow their brand nationally.
