“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. The truly understand who they are, what they have to offer and how to win in the marketplace.”Dennis Guerrette, Team Leader
“When we had the chance to meet everyone at the Sport Clips’ Discovery Day we knew that this was for us. The level of commitment from the franchisor to support the success of franchisees seemed to be second to none. In anything that we chose to do, we wanted to make sure that we remained “Client-Focused” and “Quality-Driven”. Everyone that we have worked with at Sport Clips has had this same mission and it’s unwavering… Now, five years later, we are currently working on opening our sixth Sport Clips and are more excited than ever about what the future holds!”Tim Scott, Team Leader
“You really get what you give. With Sport Clips, you are in business for yourself but not by yourself. If you stay on course and follow Sport Clips’ proven system, anyone can see similar success for themselves.” Jeff Burroughs, Team Leader
