Craig Tatro is out as an owner in CA's Men's Fine Grooming

WICHITA — The "Craig" in Craig Allen's Men's Fine Grooming is gone.

Craig Tatro, who founded the business with Erik Leschuk at the Waterfront in late 2004, has resigned.

Even before he left, he and Leschuk changed the name to CA’s Men's Fine Grooming.

"Craig has stepped down from CA's and is going to pursue some other things," Leschuk says.

That means he no longer has an ownership, either.

"It would be fair to say as of this week he's no longer associated or tied to CA's," Leschuk says.

Tatro couldn't be reached for comment.

"Sometimes you get to a point where things gotta change,” Leschuk says, “and we got to that point, and we thought this was the best remedy to do so."

Tatro also is out of the future CA’s in Leawood near the Sprint campus.

"We have a couple of pieces to put into place to open," Leschuk says.

Tatro had been the point person on the project. Leschuk says he's trying to catch up on it now.

"We're kind of holding off on an opening date because I'm kind of a one-man band here," he says.

The business will open, though, Leschuk says.

He says the Wichita business is going well, with about 400 members and 900 different clients who come to the salon a month.

"It's been well received," Leschuk says, though he adds that it's "taken a little while."
