Sport Clips


Where do you want to be in five years?    

Spending less time on an airplane? 

Coaching your kid’s team?

Freedom to be your own boss?

Closer to retirement?

The corporate grind may be a real drain on personal time and family life.  A Sport Clips franchise gives you the freedom of being your own boss with the security of an industry leader supporting you every step of the way. 

A Sport Clips franchise appeals to a huge niche market – guys wanting a great haircut experience in a place where they can feel at home with a fun sports themed environment and TVs playing sports everywhere! Sport Clips is the only men and boys haircut franchise located in all 50 states with more than 1,400 locations and more opening every week. 

And Sport Clips has outstanding growth potential.  With 7-10% annual store sales growth for each of the last five years and a 99% franchise continuity rate, it’s easy to understand why Sport Clips has been ranked in Entrepreneur Magazine’s Franchise 500 for 17 straight years and ranked by Forbes Magazine as a TOP 10 franchise for the money for the last two years!     

At Sport Clips, We Groom Future Owners for Success!
Sport Clips has a unique owner investor model so you are not needed in the store every day and there’s no haircutting experience needed!  Our outstanding Recruitment Program will help you find a great manager and excellent stylists to run the day-to-day operations. This allows you to work ON your business, not IN your business.  You can even keep your job while you’re building it.   

The freedom to maintain your current employment affords you a steady income as the business grows.  Built for multi-unit ownership, once your initial location is running successfully, we will help you open new stores.  When the time is right and typically after you have three stores open, you can choose to leave your current career - making the exciting transition to full-time Sport Clips franchise owner!
