Why should members of the Hair Restoration Community become clients of Bob Israel’s company…why is he different than the average credit card merchant processing company? That is an interesting story in and of itself and one you should know about.
Fifty years ago Bob Israel, Sr. and Sy Sperling started The Hair Club for Men. They opened franchises all over the United States and became icons in the Hair Restoration Industry. As time passed and Bob Israel Jr. began his independent sales organization he received many referrals from both his Dad and Sy Sperling. Not only was Bob extremely familiar with how the hair restoration industry worked, he developed a close relationship with many members of the industry and today has over 70 clients who are members of the Hair Restoration Industry.
He understands what it takes to run a Salon and all related businesses in this industry. He literally grew up in the industry and has a vested interest in keeping overhead down and assuring that all of his clients achieve the highest profits possible. Most of all, Bob looks for long term relationships with the members of this fast growing community and is determined to always provide the fairest rates and all around best customer service.
What can Bob’s company provide to members of The Hair Society?
