American Barber and Beauty Academy is one of the first tenants to open at the new Lancaster Avenue Shopping Plaza, located at the former A.W. Golden Cadillac dealership property in Reading.

Moving just a mile down the road from their previous location on Route 10, founder and CEO, George Ortiz Jr., cut the ribbon on the new location Monday evening in a ceremony outside of the building.

The new state of the art campus will provide prospective barbers and stylists courses in Cosmetology, Barbering, Esthetics, and Instructor Programs.

The new facility includes 12 barber stations, 26 styling stations, 6 manicure and pedicure stations, and 10 Esthetic stations.

Over the last 7 years American Barber Academy has successfully graduated hundreds of students through their Barber Program.

Graduates have successfully opened on their own or have worked in established salons and barbershops. The academy boasts their success is attributed to the culture; If our students are not successful, we are not successful.
