Sport Clips Haircuts, the nation's leading men's and boys' hair care franchise, is expanding in the Northeast with emphasis on the greater Buffalo area. The franchise is one of the fastest-growing in the country, opening several stores per week. Eight to 10 new locations are planned in greater Buffalo. "This market is one we consider 'underserved' with only one open Sport Clips store," says Dave Wells, Sport Clips director of Franchising. "Unlike most markets, there are not any licenses in development in that area meaning a new candidate would have first preference on available real estate. This is a unique opportunity to grow with a mature franchise system that already has an established national brand identity."
"Investing in a franchise with a 20-year history of growth and success offers small business ownership opportunities and the ability to create jobs in communities across the country," says Pete Lindsey, Sport Clips vice president of Franchising and an industry veteran. "And Sport Clips offers a unique owner/investor or semi-absentee model… you own the business, but an experienced manager you hire oversees the day-to-day operations and hair care professionals in the stores. And, all of this is backed by the support and training of one of the strongest franchises in the U.S. and Canada."
Sport Clips has more than 1,400 locations and will soon be open in all 50 U.S. states. Since its beginning, Sport Clips' concept and mission have remained the same – to offer a championship haircut experience in a sports-themed environment. For entrepreneurs looking to build a business, Sport Clips is a recession-resistant business with no receivables and no industry experience necessary. Start-up requirements are relatively low – $150,000 liquid with $300,000 in net worth and a commitment to expand to multiple units. Sport Clips offers a 20 percent discount to qualified veterans through the International Franchise Association's VetFran program, one of the franchises' many efforts to support those who serve our country.
Sport Clips offers franchisee candidates industry leading mature same store sales growth, strong unit economics, a 99% franchise continuity rate and best-in-class training and ongoing support. To find out if Sport Clips is right for you, visit SportClipsFranchise.com or call 800-872-4247 x. 1.
