The Gents Place Opens First Franchised Location in Chicago

The Gents Place, a lifestyle club bringing men’s grooming to the next level, has opened its first franchised location since launching its national franchise program last summer. With an impressive 10 agreements signed in its first year and four corporately owned clubs currently open throughout Dallas and Kansas City, the new location has expanded the brand’s presence to Chicago with their first, but certainly not last, location within the popular city. Situated in the bustling Chicago Loop, The Gents Place strategically converted what was once The 316 Club located at 175 West Jackson Blvd into its first club in the state of Illinois. The Gents Place will be opening its second franchised location in Houston in early 2018 with additional Chicago and Houston area licenses already awarded and in development.

The Gents Place Chicago will be owned and operated by Peter Terracina, who signed a multi-unit franchise agreement with the company back in March, opening its doors on November 30th. Located in the heart of Chicago’s Loop, what was once The 316 Club has transformed into The Gents Place first franchised location, which will offer its unique grooming services. Terracina has plans to open a second club in the Fulton River District in 2018.

The company is seeking qualified franchisees to join the brand and currently has opportunities nationwide in markets such as Texas, Georgia, Florida and Illinois. Financing is available through the Small Business Administration for qualified franchisees. For more information visit
