Why Open A Haircut Franchise?

If you’re looking for a smart investment in a $75 billion recession resistant industry with repeat customers, you may want to consider hair care. The semi-absentee/manager run business model allows you as the franchisee to work on your business, not in your business. While there are several business models and target audience options within the hair care space, men’s hair care may be especially appealing to those looking for a stable cash business with minimal inventory requirements and simple to execute operations.

About Sport Clips Haircuts

Founded in 1993, Sport Clips Haircuts is a men’s sports-themed hair salon providing clients a championship haircut experience at a reasonable price while watching sports on TV. With more than 1,800 locations across the U.S. – in all 50 states – and in Canada, we provide more than 33 million haircuts annually and are continuing to expand.

Take Control of Your Future with Sport Clips

Achieve Great Freedom

Enjoy greater freedom and reach your personal and financial goals growing a business on your terms that will always be in demand and has recurring revenue.

Achieve Flexible Lifestyle

Typically, this is a multi-unit, scalable investment opportunity business you can own on the side and grow over time. The transitional business model puts you on the path to exit your day job once maturity in your stores is achieved.

Achieve A Firm Foundation

Sport Clips delivers stability with our 95.4% store continuity rate and is ideal for diversifying your current business, investments and/or retirement strategy. Haircutting is also considered to be relatively resistant to economic conditions, can’t be outsourced, and when tough times cause consumers to pull back from eating out and discretionary personal services, haircuts continue. Franchisees experience high loyalty and stability with clients returning every 4-6 weeks.

Join the Sport Clips Team

Ideal candidates and existing franchisees come from all walks of life however those with senior or executive level experience and have strong leadership, managerial and communications skills often do best as this business is about managing relationships and people. Sport Clips is also a great business for two (Husband/Wife) or other teams. Many franchisees engage their children in the process making it a great family business.

Build a Solid Business with an Industry Leader

With excellent training and support resources designed to help our franchisees succeed, Sport Clips starts you off on the right foot in getting your stores opened, developing a positive team environment and building our clientele.

  • • Site selection and third-party financing assistance
  • • Store construction and set-up
  • • Pre-opening procedures and post-opening follow up
  • • Stylist recruitment guidance
  • • Grand Opening plans and a dedicated team to assist you every step of the way
  • • Neighborhood marketing plans
  • • Networking and learning opportunities at local Leaderships and National Huddles


    “Since I have no experience in the haircutting industry, I was impressed how strong the franchise support was from training to coaching to even a National Huddle. Sport Clips’ strong values, culture and brand sold us on this investment. They truly understand who they are, what they have to offer and how to win in the marketplace

    – Dennis Guerrette, Franchisee
