Hammer and Nails

CRC will be handling the northeast U.S. launch of Hammer & Nails, a grooming shop for men. The location, in Brooklyn’s Williamsburg neighborhood, will open in June. First seen on ABC’s “Shark Tank” in 2013, the chain, founded by Michael Elliot, offers haircuts and straight razor shaves as well as hand and foot care. After the success of Elliot’s first location in Los Angeles, over 300 licenses have been awarded. CRC’s campaign is set to incorporate events and themed days such as “National Bro Day” into the mix. “CRC has proven and extensive knowledge on what consumers are looking for and I have no doubt that with their help, the grand opening will be very successful,” commented Anthony David, Brooklyn Hammer & Nails franchise owner.
