THE START OF SWEENEY TODD'S
The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, London. That's where the idea for our name came from! At the time, there was very little choice for Men. There was lack of innovation, creativity and professionalism. Sweeney Todd's was a future that looked promising and allowed our owners, Collin and Minnie Allingham, to put their skills to the test and start taking risks as owners/founders. The husband and wife duo designed their first Barbershop and away they went. Our first Barbershop, Hampton Park, operated for 18 years and gave us the opportunity to grow our network and build a strong customer base.
NEW PAKENHAM LOCATION
As the Sweeney Todd's name gained popularity, it was decided another location was needed. Pakenham was the location of choice as lot's of our Hampton Park customers were moving to the new estates in Pakenham and business's there received major growth. The location, being on the main street, was a prime spot we couldn't say no too.
NEW BERWICK LOCATION
After living locally in Berwick for 7 years and visiting all the local business', it was clear a new Barbershop was needed. With a new strip of shops being built, the opportunity to open was an easy choice. Our team was so passionate in expanding and growing the business, we decided to open in the heart of Berwick.
NEW BRIGHTON LOCATION
With the south east covered, we decided we needed to expand our customer base and broaden our reach. We headed off closer towards Melbourne and an amazing store become available in the Bay St Brighton. A large new space needed something extra, so we decided to create a shave's only bar!
