Roosters Men's Grooming Center Gives Men Feeling of Old-Fashioned Barbershop

ATLANTA, GA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/06/14 -- When you walk in the doors of Atlanta's new Roosters Men's Grooming Center (MGC), there's a sense that you're going back in time -- to an old-fashioned barbershop filled with modern amenities.

Ross and Renee Christen are owners of Roosters MGC located at 4969 Roswell Road NE, between Buckhead and Sandy Springs. The couple, who first met in an Atlanta salon, both recognized the growing appeal for hair services that cater solely to men seeking an upscale experience in an environment designed exclusively for them.

Guests are surrounded by dark hardwoods and invited to relax in oversized leather barber chairs in six semi-private stations and select from a variety of custom services including precision haircuts and signature shaves with hot steam towels, deep cleansing facial massages and other grooming services.

"We're fortunate to have an amazing team of hair care professionals who have worked in some of the country's most exclusive men's salons," said Renee Christen. "They have more than 60 years' combined experience in the hair care industry and understand the importance of providing exceptional customer service." Jennelle Reinhardt is the store's manager and lead stylist.

The Christens and Roosters' team recently welcomed guests to the store's official ribbon cutting with the Sandy Springs/Perimeter Chamber of Commerce. During the grand opening celebration, Roosters MGC made a special presentation of $1,000 as a Four Star Sponsor to the Sarah Smith Elementary School Foundation.

"Being active participants in our local community is very important to us and to Roosters," said Ross Christen. "Much like the old fashioned barbershop, we want to build bonds for the long-term."

Roosters MGC is open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, and 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday. To schedule an appointment or purchase a gift card, call 404-963-1953. Walk-ins are always welcome or you can book your service online or on their Facebook page.

Groomsmen and corporate packages are also available, and the store carries a full line of Aveda products for men.

Roosters MGC of Buckhead/SandySprings is one of 70 franchises nationwide. The first was opened in Lapeer, Mich., in 1999 by Master Barber and Founder Joe Grondin, who strives to give customers the best in men's personal grooming services to ensure the experience brings you back.

Thanks to Docker, it becomes very easy to leverage containers to build, ship, and run any Linux application on any kind of infrastructure.
