The leaders of male grooming, Jimmy Rod’s Barbershop are excited to announce that they have teamed up with Brisbane’s favourite coffee merchants, Need Coffee Co and Fonzie Abbott.

This dynamic trio are holding a pop-up shop in Queen Street Mall, on Thusday the 2nd of August and will be offering free haircuts and coffee from 11am-2pm. The concept of this event aims to offer a tasting of this freshly roasted coffee, as well as ensuring the gentlemen of Brisbane continue to look sharp.

After 20 years in the industry and 14 years since opening his first store, Mr O’Brien’s core objective remains to combine the traditional Barbering values with an innovative twist. Jimmy Rods has consistently raised the bar in men’s grooming across the sunshine state and is now focused on transforming Brisbane’s hospitality sector.

Need Coffee Co is a recently established business, residing in Jimmy Rod’s Broadway store, located on 133 Adelaide St, CBD. These coffee roasters are sure to keep you warm this winter, with their Fonzie Abbott signature blend and an array of appetising menu items, from toasted jaffle sandwiches to a mouth-watering selection of muffins and slices.

The fusion of these two companies derives, as they form a united bond over their shared business values and passion to succeed in their respective fields of specialty, whilst preserving supreme quality and exceptional customer service.

Co-founder and owner of Need Coffee Co, Jimmy O’Brien states “The ideals behind the barbering and barista trades share similar qualities. To be successful in these industries, you need to engage customers, form a connection and reward clients for their loyalty. This is what we aim to achieve through this initiative.”
