Hamden, CT--Quinnipiac University has a top flight entrepreneur on its campus.  According to reports an entrepreneurship major is taking his studies to heart. 

Student Cameron Burbank created a mobile barbershop to service students who reside in the universitys dorms.  He operates the ship with professional barber Joey Barrco.   He said the idea was spawn from a need for student to get frequent haircuts. 

He mentioned the idea to his associate professor of entrepreneurship and strategy who then advised him to put together a business plan and present it at the State Business Plan competition.   Burbank won. 

He then brought the plan to life by purchasing a used 40-ft truck customized to become a rolling barbershop.  Featuring four stations, a waiting area, reception and cold and hot water.  He used the summer to put it together and is now a functioning business. 

The shop hours are Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.  but has plans to expand to five days per week.  Cuts are $17.with appointment available.
