• Kohnen Brothers named Barberitos 2012 Franchisees of the Year

Philip and Martin Kohnen recently received the Barberitos 2012 Franchisee of the Year award. The brothers own two units in Georgia, one in Milledgeville and one in Macon. Philip started with the company in 2003, at the Athens Downtown location during college. After graduating, Philip took on the GM position at Barberitos Eastside and took over the Milledgeville store four years later.

"I learned at an early age to work hard at whatever you do, even if it's a job that gets you through college," Philip said.

A customer since the first Barberitos opened, Martin decided to leave a career in the corporate world and team up with Philip in the operation. With Philip working in the stores managing operations and Martin working with finances and marketing, they have been operating the Milledgeville store since 2010, and opened the Macon unit last year.

The Kohnens are heavily involved with the local community and donate to local organizations and events and work especially closely with the national Muscular Dystrophy Association.

The brothers will open their third location later this year.
