Dispelling 5 Big Myths About Joining the Sport Clips Franchisee Family
Sport Clips is proud to be a leading haircare franchise company all throughout
the company. But as any celebrity can attest, once you get large and popular
enough, people start making rumors about you and spreading misinformation,
even if they don’t mean to do so. This can be a problem for people
who want to join the Sport Clips family as a franchisee, as they might
inadvertently base their decision to join or not on wrong information
To help potential franchisees with their decision, here are 5 of the most
common rumors about becoming a Sport Clips franchise debunked:
Franchisees have to be skilled hairstylists.
In order to become a franchisee – or a Team Leader as we like to
call them – you do not need to actually be a hairstylist or have
owned a barbershop in the past. In fact, it is quite rare for a Team Leader
to conduct any sort of haircare service. Instead, you will need to be
a people person, a good manager, and have a sound mind for business. If
you are franchising correctly, you will be able to hire reliable Stylists
for your location who will do all the haircutting for you.
If your town has a barber, people won’t want to come to Sport Clips.
Franchising with Sport Clips is all about giving people a unique experience,
not necessarily giving them a haircut. When setting up a new location,
Sport Clips corporate headquarters helps franchisees with marketing to
get the word spread that there is a new haircut place in town, and that
it is worth checking out. Also, we have a dedicated Real Estate team that
spends their hours looking for
ideal franchise locations based on population, preexisting competitors, and so on.
Sport Clips is the “Hooters” restaurant of the haircutting world.
A top priority at Sport Clips is creating a haircutting environment that
is friendly for the whole family, and we would never put the focus of
our service on our Stylists’ own appearances. We take pride in our
work and treating our team members with utmost respect. It is also noteworthy
that we require franchise locations to not display any Swimsuit Editions
of Sports Illustrated™ in the waiting room.
Opening a Sport Clips means being stuck inside the back of a haircutting
salon all day.
Team Leaders who effectively run their stores generally spend just a few
hours each day there to check on operations and speak with team members.
The rest of their day should be spent coming up with better ways to improve
the customer experience and run a Sport Clips. Brainstorming these ideas
is often easiest outside, at-home, or with fun team discussions. You should
not feel trapped in an office.
Only veteran entrepreneurs can become Sport Clips franchisees.
At Sport Clips, we are proud to be able to say we make it easy for just
about anyone to become a franchisee. We have created and constantly improve
our corporate office and support systems for franchisees, new and experienced.
When all of the steps are followed correctly and in the right order, someone
brand new to business could become a Sport Clips superstar.
