We Are Sport Clips
Our operation and everything we do is rooted in three strong but simple values:
- Do what’s right
- Do your best
- Treat others the way they want to be treated
Over the years, Sport Clips has celebrated many growth milestones:
- By the five-year mark, we had 50 franchise stores in the United States.
- In 2007, we celebrated our 500th franchise store in San Diego, California.
- In 2012, we celebrated our 1,000th franchise store opening in Springboro, Ohio.
- In 2013, we opened our first store in Canada and now have 40 stores and counting!
- In 2015, Sport Clips celebrated a store opening in Maine, its 50th U.S. state.
- In 2016, Sport Clips opened its 1,500th location, coincidentally in our founder’s hometown of Sumter, South Carolina.
- In 2018, Sport Clips celebrates 25 years in business.
Today, there are more than 1,700 Sport Clips locations open in the U.S. and Canada. If you ask Gordon Logan whether or not he knew Sport Clips would become one of the fastest-growing franchise systems today, he’d answer: “Yes, I just didn’t think it would take this long!”
We help our Team Leaders succeed by providing excellent training and support programs. Our years of experience in this industry make us successful leaders, able to answer your questions and guide you along the way.

It’s Good to Be an Owner!
Are you looking for a positive and exciting career or life change? How about greater freedom, lifestyle flexibility, and stability? Franchising with Sport Clips Haircuts could be the right move for you. Sport Clips offers you a way to transition from your day job and pave a path to greater freedom, flexibility and stability through investment in a proven business model that’s simple to execute while offering something every guy needs: a Championship Haircut Experience.
At Sport Clips, we offer Clients the expertise of well-trained, “guy-smart” Stylists in a fun, casual environment where they can enjoy watching sports on TV during their haircut. Haircutting is a multi-billion-dollar industry, but Sport Clips is the first haircare franchise to cater to the more than 175 million men and boys in the United States and Canada. Isn’t it time you take control of your life?
Here are some reasons why Sport Clips is the right salon franchise opportunity for you:
- Growth – We have a responsible growth plan, averaging over 100 new Sport Clips locations each year for the past ten years while maintaining high standards for real estate and the Team Leaders we have invited to join our Team.
- Model – We have a semi-absentee, manager-managed business model that lets you work ON your business, not IN your business.
- Continuity Rate – We have a franchise continuity rate of 97.6%, an honor based on five years of real data, during which time we opened 709 new stores and only 16 closed in the entire country.
- Industry – We have a well-defined niche market and a recession-resistant industry. The men’s segment is the most efficient segment of the industry, thanks to no chemicals, easier-to-execute haircuts, and lower inventories.
- Team Culture – From the top of the organization to our Team Members in our stores, our culture and values drive our decisions. Giving back to our communities is an important part of our Sport Clips culture.
- Training and Support – We have a best-in-class training and support program for our Team Members. With Coaches in every market to help train Stylists or provide insight to our Team Leaders, we are very focused on training and support. Sport Clips is about having the right infrastructure in place to help you achieve your goals. We have approximately one support person for every seven stores.
- Presence – We are the only national hair cutting franchise with a presence in all 50 states, plus Canada. You will be part of a nationally recognized brand and well-resourced support system.
Sport Clips Unique Products and Services
As a Team Leader with Sport Clips, you’ll be able to provide your community with the unique products and services that have come to be associated with our brand. Our signature service is the MVP Experience, and in addition to a precision haircut, Clients enjoy our legendary hot steamed towel, invigorating massaging shampoo, and a relaxing neck and shoulder treatment. (Note: A few states have regulations that cause us to use alternative procedures in those states.)
Sport Clips also offers these unique points of difference:
- A fun sports-themed environment with sports decor and televisions always tuned to sports programming
- An innovative vacuum system to keep the stores as clean as possible
- Proprietary All-Star haircutting system and training
- Use and sell top-quality products that address the unique haircare needs and lifestyles of our predominately male Clients
- Top retail product partnerships, which provide an additional stream of revenue
Clients aren’t the only ones who love our business; Stylists do, too! Sport Clips Stylists wear comfortable clothes, stand on anti-fatigue, sports court-type flooring; utilize European-style shampoo bowls (Stylists stand behind the bowl) designed to respect the Stylist, make it much more comfortable for them while enabling them to perform a much more relaxing massaging shampoo, and offer our Clients the comfort of adjustable height, massaging and heated chairs; and they are part of a fun and exciting team!
We offer a true career for our Team Members, not just a job. Team Members have opportunities to work their way through the ranks into management positions where they learn to manage a store and lead a team of Stylists. Stylists may also become regional educators, training Stylists on the newest trends on hair cutting techniques. We also have an Artistic Team which is one of the most respected teams in our industry. In 2018 one of our Artistic Team members was featured in a nationally-syndicated TV show, where she won the styling competition against top industry stylists.
