Sport Clips Haircuts is a winning concept – a great haircut experience for men and boys’ in a sports-themed environment, at a reasonable price. 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.

For entrepreneurs looking to build a business, Sport Clips offers a multi-unit, lifestyle franchise.  Sport Clips franchise owners set their own schedules based on the need.  Typically, owners will spend 12 to 15 hours per week on a store once it is opened.  Our semi-absentee business model allows owners to invest in a business and hire a manager to run the day-to-day business while keeping their current job and building a Sport Clips business for the future.

Transition to full time business ownership is usually around 3-5 open stores.  The concept is also highly scalable (our largest franchisee recently reached 50 stores open) and has a relatively low investment level of $189,300 - $354,500 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.



Ideal Franchisee Profile 

We look for candidates with strong managerial and communication skills, and who enjoy working with, and developing, people and marketing their store.  You do well in Sport Clips if you have a good sense of humor and are good at having fun.  On a disk assessment we would look for dominance, drive, and a good dose of social mixed in.  Franchisees will work with the manager and oversee multiple units.  Your primary responsibility is to market your business and drive sales.
