Sport Clips Haircuts Named a Top Franchise for Veterans

Posted By Amanda Palm

Sport Clips Haircuts, the nation’s largest franchise dedicated to men’s and boys’ hair care, was identified by independent franchisee satisfaction research firm, Franchise Business Review, as being one of the Top 100 franchises to qualify for its 2017 Top Franchises for Veterans list.

To identify the top brands, Franchise Business Review analyzed 18 months of data from approximately 25,000 veteran franchise owners representing over 250 brands regarding their overall satisfaction with their brands and their likelihood to recommend them to others.

Sport Clips’ franchisees were surveyed on 33 benchmark questions about their experience and satisfaction regarding critical areas of their franchise systems, including training & support, operations, franchisor/franchisee relations, and financial opportunity.

“The reality is that two-thirds of the thousands of franchise opportunities available today are simply average or below average opportunities,” said Eric Stites, founder and CEO of Franchise Business Review. “That’s the whole reason we do what we do, which is help prospective franchisees understand which franchises are the top opportunities based on the actual performance and satisfaction of franchise owners. The 100 companies named in this year’s report received the highest ratings from the veterans that own them on our independent satisfaction survey.”

“I began my career in 1979 as a franchisee myself. My service as an Aircraft Commander in the U.S. Air Force helped me develop the leadership skills needed to run a successful business,” said Gordon Logan, founder and CEO of Sport Clips. “It is extremely rewarding to me to help military veterans take advantage of the opportunities franchising has to offer, and receiving this recognition is not only an honor, but is validation that our veteran franchisees understand and appreciate the value of teamwork, reliability and accountability, and successful mission accomplishment.”
