Recognized as one of Forbes Magazine's “Best Franchises to Buy” in 2014 and 2015.
Our fun, sports-themed, men's and boys' haircutting concept is so unique; it's made us the fastest-growing haircutting franchise in the country with over 1,400 stores now open. Yet we still have plenty of prime locations available. This is a great recession-resistant business that's all cash, no receivables, and no industry experience is necessary. Better yet, our semi-absentee / manager-run business model that allows you to work ON your business, not IN your business.
Sport Clips Haircuts offers the freedom of being your own boss, with the security of an industry leader supporting you every step of the way. We have a 98.3% franchise continuity rate, an honor based on five years of real data, during which time only five Sport Clips stores have closed in the entire country.
How Is Our Continuity Rate So High? At Sport Clips, we provide support for our franchise owners. We have a tried-and-true model and we use proven training programs and advanced support tools to ensure that our franchisees have every chance of success. Our stores have experienced annual same store sales growth of 7% to 10% for years.
The Sport Clips Difference
Sport Clips was the first truly national brand to exclusively target the 150 million men and boys who need a haircut place to call their own. As a Sport Clips franchise owner, you will have the ability to own a business that capitalizes on the men’s and boys’ haircut segment of a $60 billion hair and beauty market. The men’s segment of the haircutting industry is the most efficient; with no chemicals, easier-to-execute haircuts, and lower inventories.
Sport Clips offers men and boys more than just a haircut – we offer them a unique, sports-themed experience they can’t get anywhere else. The “MVP Experience” includes a precision haircut, massaging shampoo, hot steamed towel treatment, and neck and shoulder message while enjoying sports on TV. Our stylists specialize in haircare for men and boys and stay up-to-date on the latest trends. Our stores feature large, flat-screen televisions playing sports programming at each haircut station and in the lobby, as well as reading materials like Sports Illustrated. Clients receive affordable luxuries like massaging and heated shampoo chairs and haircut services without an appointment – walk-ins are welcome.
