Johnny Weber, a Sport Clips Haircuts area developer who oversees stores
in seven states, is this year's
Multi-Unit Franchisee Magazine 2017 Most Valuable Performer Award winner for a single brand. He has grown his Sport Clips business in less
than nine years to include locations in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Indiana,
Kentucky, North Carolina and Tennessee. In addition, he serves as area
developer for four states, supporting other franchisees and helping them
grow their businesses.
"Johnny started his career in franchising with Sport Clips Haircuts
in 2008 in the Nashville, TN area and has built an empire of over 50 stores
in seven states in only eight-and-a-half years," says Gordon Logan,
Sport Clips Haircuts founder and CEO. "Johnny employs over 560 people
and he and his team support a total of over 1,500 Sport Clips team members.
He's even helped one of our Sport Clips stylists become a franchisee
with several very successful locations. He is a bundle of energy, always
supporting local communities, never met a stranger; we couldn’t
have a better brand ambassador than Johnny Weber. Congratulations to Johnny
for this award and his continued work in paving the way to success for
Sport Clips franchisees and stylists."
The Sport Clips business model quickly caught the eager entrepreneur’s
interest. With its manage-the-manager structure and highly scalable offerings,
he realized this was what he was looking for. Weber remarks,
“When you buy a Sport Clips franchise, you are not buying a job,
you are making an investment you can build into something big. And because haircuts can’t be outsourced or automated, your risk
Weber and his team celebrated the opening of their 54th store and plan
to have 61 stores open by the end of 2017. "The Sport Clips franchise
model is an all-around winner. "We offer top-notch, on-going training
and an upbeat, comfortable place for stylists to work. And, clients have
a relaxing, sports-themed atmosphere in which to check something off their
to-do list…getting a great haircut without an appointment and getting
on with their day."
Weber received the MVP Award at the recent Multi-Unit Franchising Conference
in Las Vegas and is featured on the cover of this month's
Franchise Business Review magazine.
