We had the good fortune of connecting with Willie Robinson and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Willie, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
I was in corporate America for over 25 years working for the same company at a Director’s level. I decided to start my own business after several changes at the top took place. This was best decision I made despite the pandemic.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I started out as an entry level employee in the airline catering industry. I worked my way up the ranks by relocating all across America for promotions and better opportunities all within the same company. I reached the level of Director, which made me the youngest Director within the entire global company. Lessons learned along way is nothing comes easy , and hard work is necessary. Lastly you may not get what you think you deserve, at the time , but keep pushing forward, and your time will come, in life and business.

My Brand Story- Chi-Town Cuts and Fades is a Unisex Hair Salon / Barbershop with a focus on servicing the entire family at the same location. we are community driven and have something entertaining for people of all ages while you wait.
