Why is Sport Clips a Good Investment?  

It’s a winning concept — a great haircut experience for men and boys in a fun sports-themed environment.  With over 1,600 stores and adding over 150 new locations each year, Sport Clips is by far the leading men’s and boys’ haircut franchise in North America, in all 50 states and Canada. For entrepreneurs looking to build a business, this is a great recession-resistant business with no receivables, and no industry experience is necessary. Better yet, you hire a manager and keep your current job, while building your Sport Clips business for the future. 

Your store manager will spend time on the cutting floor as a Stylist, and assist in the operation of the store.  You are responsible for your store manager, neighborhood marketing, and bookkeeping. 

You will receive comprehensive classroom and in-store training that covers all aspects of what you need to know to run your business.  Proven systems with training, an easy to execute business plan and on-going support backed by national advertising and recruiting programs are all available to you.   Sport Clips is a proud sponsor of Joe Gibbs Racing’s NASCAR drivers Denny Hamlin and Carl Edwards, and partners with numerous NCAA and professional sports teams.

Most franchisees spend an average of 12-15 hours a week working on their business.   Transition to full time business ownership is usually around 5 open stores.  The concept is also highly scalable (our largest franchisee recently reached 50 stores open) and has a relatively low investment level of $183,300 - $351,500 per store.   

Start-up requirements are relatively low — $200,000 liquid with $400,000 in net worth and a commitment to expand to multiple units. Sport Clips offers a 20 percent discount to qualified veterans.


What Does an Ideal Franchisee Look Like?

We look for candidates with strong managerial and communication skills, and who enjoy working with, and developing, people and marketing their store.  Franchisees will work with the manager and oversee multiple units.  Your primary responsibility is to market your business and drive sales.

A Great Experience For Your Clients & Stylists:     

  • From a client’s perspective, there are many options to choose from, but what makes Sport Clips different is the experience we provide. Clients receive a haircut from stylists who specialize in men’s and boys’ hair care and who have all completed training in our All Star haircutting system. We offer relaxing amenities and our signature service, the MVP Experience, is  a 20-minute, no-appointment-necessary session that includes a precision haircut, steamed towel, invigorating massaging shampoo, and relaxing neck and shoulder treatment in a unique, sports-themed environment while enjoying sports on TV.  
  • We emphasize not only the client experience, but also the stylist experience.  For example, our floors are anti-fatigue “sport court”-type floors, which make it much more comfortable for our stylists who are on their feet all day; shampoo units are European-style, where the stylist stands behind the client to perform the massaging shampoo – more comfortable for our clients and easier on our stylists’ backs. And, we offer tremendous career opportunities for our stylists - management track, educator track, and even, salon ownership.

  • Sport Clips provides “haircuts with heartthrough its annual Help A Hero fundraiser that has given $5 million to the VFW; national partnership with St. Baldrick’s Foundation, the largest private funder of childhood cancer research grants; and other national and local philanthropic outreach.
