OldBoy Barbershop Barcelona


Helped the debt-ridden barbershops out and raised profits of their owners by 10% - all during the quarantine.

  • Branch



Owner of the Old Boy Barcelona – a franchise of the biggest barbershop chain in the world – came to us when the situation was critical: no company performance reports for the last 4 months, blocked access to accounts, warning notices from the tax authorities, social security agency and even the employees. They were unable to connect to surveillance cameras and go to Spain so as to sort the problems out on site.


To understand what’s going on in and with the business, settle the conflicts with the employees and the public authorities.

Go back in the black as soon as possible, effectively and with minimum loss.


  • We found out that the company’s CEO had misappropriated the amount of fees for 4 months, paid no bills to social services, no salaries to the employees, and even purchased mobile phones on behalf of the company. It all added up to EUR 35,000 in debts.
  • We executed a notarial act for the replacement of the CEO and obtained access to the accounts, tax reports and social security deductions.
  • Made a 3-years financial recovery plan.
  • Negotiated with the creditors for repayment of the amounts outstanding in equal installments.
  • Interviewed a number of candidates and hired two decent barbers, because the former two employees were illegal.


By the end of 2020, the turnover increased by 10% compared to the period preceding the problems with the CEO. The debt is down to EUR 7,800 from EUR 35,000. As of today, the company is making profit again. No small feat in the period of coronavirus pandemic.
