Our Values

Everything we do at Founding Fathers Collective is founded on our guiding principles:


We believe meeting the needs of our neighbors builds a stronger community.


We know that strong, caring communities improve the lives of everyone involved.


We want to provide a place where community-growing (and maybe even world-changing) conversations can be had the old-fashioned way: by simply sharing experiences.

Our Origin Story

Take a walk through the story of how Founding Fathers Collective came to be what it is today–and where we’re going.

John Hancock Barbershop

November 24th, 2014

In November 2014, Grant Quezada and his family moved back to their hometown of Prescott, Arizona with the vision of opening the best barbershop in town. The signature old-world luxury of John Hancock Barbershop became the cornerstone concept that established the Collective in the community.

City Tavern

October 5th, 2020

A nod to the establishment that played host to the creation of the Declaration of Independence, City Tavern was added to the Collective to be a home for all who want to connect with others and share how they will leave their mark on history—all while enjoying the best beers the world has to offer.

Merchant Coffee

Much like the establishments during America’s founding era and War of Independence, Merchant Coffee in Prescott strives to be a place for social interaction, constructive dialogue, revelry, patriotism, business, and a place for community gathering.

Founders Gym

October 5th, 2020

FFC understands that healthy communities are strong communities. This is why we wanted to take what started as an employee wellness concept and grow it into a public fitness journey. Founders Gym seeks to uphold the FFC values of community, care, and connection through functional fitness training and authentic interaction.
