Small Business Spotlight: Mojo’s celebrates two years of pampering their customers!
By: Scott Holland
When I walked into Mojo’s Barbershop (2348 Wilton Drive) the first thing I saw (besides the very sexy hairstylists) were the black and white tiled floor and the old school barber chairs that immediately transported me back to childhood and rekindled all the fun memories I used to have going to the barbershop with my dad.
I sat down with Mojo’s owner, Joe Sansome, who informed me that he is a third-generation barber. When I asked him how he got the idea to open a salon in Wilton Manors he told me that he felt that there needed to be a real men’s barbershop in gay Wilton Manors and originally wanted to open a shop five years ago, but couldn’t find the right spot. A couple years later he went into a salon in Wilton Manors to get a haircut and he couldn’t get an appointment for three weeks. At that moment he realized he would have to make his dream come true an open a real New York barbershop, similar to the one his father had.
When he found the location that Mojo’s is at he at first was fearful that it may be too big, but then realized that he needed the space as he wanted a place where friends and neighbors could congregate, again bringing that old New York style flavor to the mix.
I then asked Joe how the business is different from what he expected when he opened two years ago and he said “I did not think the business would grow as fast as it did. It is so nice to see my community being loyal.”
