WICHITA — CA’s owner Erik Leschuk has opened the new CA’s Men’s Fine Grooming in Leawood, a project where Tatro had been the point person until his resignation from the company this summer.
Tatro and Leschuk founded their Waterfront store in late 2004 and early on started making expansion plans.
“We’re looking to have . . . 500 to 600 members in Kansas City in the next year or two,” Leschuk says.
He says there are almost 50 members now along with great walk-in traffic.
“The location is just perfect for walk-ins,” Leschuk says of all the nearby businesses.
In Wichita, membership stands at 410, with about 60 percent of the business being walk-ins.
“The model is membership-based, of course,” Leschuk says.
He’d hoped to have 500 members in Wichita by now. But in such a trying economy, Leschuk says just holding steady is something.
“So we feel like we’re winning.”
