5 Businesses Dads Will Love

1. Dollar Shave Club
Los Angeles

Michael Dubin didn't want to waste time buying refills for one of the most regular and mundane parts of a person's day -- shaving. He also didn't see the need to buy razors with vibrating handles or LEDs. He just wanted a simple, inexpensive razor. Sound familiar?

Dubin's struggles inspired him to start a service that saved men money and the time spent shopping for razors or replacement blades, launching in March the Dollar Shave Club with a humorous homepage video that has fueled its popularity.

It's a membership-based website that delivers high-quality replacement blades to customers who pay a few dollars per month, depending on the package they choose, the company says.

Dollar Shave Club offers three models to customers, including (plus shipping and handling):

"The Humble Twin," a two-blade razor ($1/month);
"The 4X", a four-blade razor ($6/month);
"The Executive," a six-blade model for a luxury shave ($9/month).

Dollar Shave Club will be launching a women's line and other products in coming months, the company says.
