Our main goal is to create community that will last.
Founding Fathers was birthed through the overwhelming success of John Hancock Barbershop, started by U.S. Army Special Operations veteran Grant Quezada in 2014 upon completing his enlistment and moving back home to Prescott Arizona. Since John Hancocks conception in 2014, it has outgrown two different scale-up locations. The need to grow again was the catalyst that lead Grant to bring on lifelong friend and U.S. Air Force veteran Jesse Burke to join the team and develop the Founding Fathers Collective concept to be a place for all people to come experience and foster community, care and connection. The completed flag-ship of Founding Fathers Collective is a 14,000 square foot warehouse in Prescott’s downtown Entertainment District, the new community center point for downtown with the coming of a new public park, water splash-pad for children, restaurants, and 200 room hotel and the Restoration of Granite Creek Corridor as a 1.5 mile hiking path. Founding Fathers Collective will house seven different companies for the public to enjoy. The tip of the spear is John Hancocks new 11 chair barbershop accompanied by a self serve beer tap room, speak easy, Specialty Coffee shop, mens retail, functional fitness gym, and Jiu-jitsu studio.
