Behind the Story: Mobile Barbers

Apr 8, 2016

Welcome to Behind the Story, a program where we take you straight to the source. In this episode we’ll talk about mobile businesses. Now you may think of food trucks – like the ones peppered along university parks – when you hear the phrase ‘mobile business.’  But being mobile isn’t just about offering that late-night taco fix…it’s increasingly become a platform to provide a convenient means for other goods and services. In this episode of Behind the Story, we explore the world of Mobile barbershops. After a story on the businesses we’ll hear from two barbers from Kileen that have made the mobile jump.

Yesterday, a bipartisan group of Texas politicians, business people and agricultural representatives visited Huy Fong Foods in Irwindale, California – the company that makes Sriracha sauce.

The company is staying in California for now, despite complaints from neighbors. But it may open a second plant in the Lone Star State.

When time spent texting or on Facebook gets in the way of activities or relationships, it's a sure sign consumption has gotten out of control.
