Gordon Logan conceived the Sport Clips idea in 1993 and opened its first franchised store in Houston two years later. Designed to target a previously underserved market, Sport Clips caters to men and boys by providing hassle-free hairstyling in a sports-themed environment. The company began franchising in 1995.
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.

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.

“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”
