Sport Clips Haircuts Area Developer John Kohler and his experienced team
of professionals are no strangers to pioneering the growth of the Sport
Clips Haircuts brand in previously untapped markets. When they first took
on the Chicagoland and eastern Missouri markets in 2004, there were only
two stores. Today the market boasts more than 130 stores. This type of
growth is substantial and is part of the reason Sport Clips is
the nation’s fastest growing haircutting franchise.
The team of 12, which includes area and operations coaches, a real estate
developer and marketing support, provides
full service, turnkey support to their market. Their networks have flourished under their care and support. This experienced
and dedicated team is now focusing development efforts on the emerging
markets of Detroit, Michigan and surrounding areas.
Looking to carry the brand’s strong momentum into the under-served
market of Detroit makes sense. With fewer than 20 stores in the state
of Michigan, projection maps indicate the market can support more than
65 stores. The Detroit metro area alone can support upwards of 25 stores.
Kohler describes it this way, “For Sport Clips, the Detroit market
is in the embryonic state. Opportunities abound here. “
This is a tremendous opportunity for entrepreneurs looking to get in on
the ground floor and really build out the market for themselves. Michigan
was built on a tradition of entrepreneurial spirit, and so was Sport Clips.
The highly scalable business model offers entrepreneurs tremendous opportunities to grow their business.
Recurring revenues and the inability to be outsourced or automated make
investing in the brand a sound economic decision.
The area’s improving business climate, increasing home values, falling
unemployment rates and personal income growth that's ahead of national
averages all indicate an economic resurgence. This steady economic growth
combined with strong national recognition of the Sport Clips brand make
this market poised for exponential expansion.
With Sport Clips' strategic approach to
responsible growth, markets often close to new team leaders to optimize growth for existing
franchises. To find a market that is so wide open, is rare and presents
tremendous opportunity and development potential for the right entrepreneur.
Another reason Detroit is an ideal market for Sport Clips is its strong
sports culture. With four professional sports teams (MLB Tigers, NHL Red
Wings, NBA Pistons, NFL Lions), Detroit is one of only 12 U.S cities to
have all four major North American sports with a host of NCAA Division
I teams also in the area. Detroit is even dubbed “Hockey Town”
because of its avid hockey fans, and Detroit’s high attendance rates
at its sports venues leave no doubt this is a big sports town. Simply
put, Sport Clips and Detroit are a perfect match.
Kohler has this to say, “All the legs of the stool for success are
in place. We are ready for the right person to reap the benefits of this
proven system. Marketing resources are there. Prime real estate is available.
We have experienced coaches to help with building your team. It’s
all available. And the potential for expansion is tremendous.”
Going into business for yourself doesn’t have to mean by yourself.
Sport Clips offers high-level support systems designed to help franchisees
succeed. With Detroit’s upward business climate, sports culture
and entrepreneurial tradition, Sport Clips is a brand poised for growth
in the market. Want in on the action?
