Why Invest in a Sport Clips Franchise?

The nation’s leading men’s hair franchise is on a winning streak that won’t quit

If you’re seeking a path to financial independence, a way to transition out of the corporate world, and want to take control of your future? Investing in a Sport Clips Franchise can offer a path to business ownership.

Founded in 1993, Sport Clips has grown to over 1,800 locations in North America and is the only hair cutting franchise to have a footprint in all 50 states. As the first brand to specialize in haircuts for men & boys, Sport Clips has become a dominant brand in the multi-billion dollar hair salon industry that’s renowned for our Championship Haircut Experience.

As a franchise opportunity, Sport Clips is hard to beat. We have a long, proven track record of helping entrepreneurs achieve greater freedom, a more flexible lifestyle, and a firm foundation for the future. Our straightforward business model is designed to scale, offers tremendous unit-level economics, and provides an essential service that won’t be automated out of existence. As long as men have hair, Sport Clips will always be in demand.

“Sport Clips is stronger than ever before,” says Edward Logan, CEO of Sport Clips. “We’ve proven that we’re not only recession-resistant, but we’re also pandemic-resistant. This is a very stable business with steady cash flow and straightforward business model. Now is a great time to invest in Sport Clips because as we head into 2022, we’re excited about the great real estate opportunities that exist right now, as well as the disruption of client behavior. As people change their buying behavior and their habits, the brands that go out and capture those clients are going to win an outsize market share. That’s going to be us because that’s how we’re thinking.”

Our manager-style business model means you don’t have to quit your day job

One of the key advantages of franchising with Sport Clips is that you don’t have to leave your career – in fact, we insist you keep your day job.

Our business model is unlike many other franchise concepts in that we encourage our Team Leaders to work on and not in the business. You will hire a store manager who will oversee the day-to-day operations of your store, manage your stylists, and deliver the Championship Haircut Experience your customers expect and deserve.

As an owner, your role will primarily be a supportive one. You will be responsible for creating a family-like culture that empowers your team to do exceptional work. By developing an incredible team, you will be able to focus on growing your business, implementing marketing strategies, and taking care of the administrative duties on the back end. As a rule, we expect our Team Leaders to spend around 10-15 hours per week on their stores – that’s it.

In other words, owning a Sport Clips franchise is as straightforward as a business can get.

“Our Team Leaders are phenomenal business people,” Edward says. “Very few of our Team Leaders have salon experience or beauty experience – and that experience isn’t necessary. Our top-performing Team Leaders are people friendly. Of course, this is a business and we’re all trying to make money, but I think the best way to determine if this is the right business for you is whether you can get passionate about this business – or will this just be a spreadsheet for you? Our mission is to create a championship haircut experience for men & boys in an exciting sports environment. If you’re excited about that – then we’re excited about you.”

Our business is designed for multi-unit ownership

The simplicity of our business model allows our Team Leaders to scale up to multi-unit ownership quickly.

We’re proud so many Team Leaders are multi-unit operators and continue to reinvest in the brand. In fact, Sport Clips is home to several double-digit owners who have 10, 20, 30, and 40 stores open – with plans to continue expanding!

“Sport Clips was designed from day one to be a multi-unit opportunity,” says Jim Atkinson, Vice President of Franchise Development. “This was never set up to an individual unit where someone buys a job for the rest of their lives. Our business model is very simple: we cut hair. We built our business model to scale, and we have all the resources to scale quickly and effectively. We know when you should add resources and when to build additional infrastructure. Whether you want to scale up to three stores, five stores, 10 stores, or beyond, we have a plan that can help you get there.”

Stability. Confidence. Long-term Growth.

Sport Clips has one of the highest franchise continuity rates in the industry. This means our Team Leaders stay in their businesses, their businesses stay open, and our franchise network gets stronger and stronger.

“We’re closing in on 1,900 locations,” says Gordon Logan, Founder of Sport Clips. “We know this business works. We’ve been able to help entrepreneurs change their lives through business ownership. In turn, they’ve been able to create countless opportunities in their communities and give back. We’re going to continue to grow – but we’re growing the right way and with the right people.”
