Attending Discovery Day is an important step
in making an informed decision about whether to invest in a franchise. The main purpose of these events
is to provide validation and affirmation. Having done your due diligence
up to this point, Discovery Day is a chance for you to see the entire
operation in action, and to determine if it is in alignment with what
you know about the brand.
You can get a feel for a company by completing research online, but to
really understand it you need to personally experience it. Getting a feel
for the culture and seeing first-hand how coworkers interact as a team
will offer invaluable insight into the overall structure and whether franchise
is a good match for you.
And likewise, Discovery Day is also about the brand getting to know you.
When you invest in Sport Clips Haircuts, you are becoming part of our
team. Our Discovery Day is a chance for you to learn more about the franchise
system, but also for us to learn more about you. It comes down to whether
or not we are a good fit for each other.
Transparency is an essential element to finding the best match for
our business model. Discovery Day gives you a chance to meet and interact with our executive
team, and includes a visit to our stores. We encourage you to come with
questions and to be prepared to answer some as well.
Sport Clips is dedicated to the success of our franchisees.
Our 99.7 percent continuity rate is a result of this dedication. We have found when a store doesn’t
perform well, it can often be attributed to a failure to follow the proven
system. Because of this, we take our vetting process seriously.
If a franchisee is not a good fit for the system, the entire system will
suffer. By closely examining whether you are right match for our business
model, we are protecting the brand and your investment. We are also looking
to see if you have the personality and traits it takes to be an effective
Team Leader. Are you cooperative, responsive and engaging? Do you demonstrate
the ability to follow a system? Can you hire and lead a great team? These
are just some of the things our review committee evaluates.
Putting people first is at the foundation of what makes the Sport Clips
business model so successful. We want to fully understand what led you
to make the decision to invest. We want to hear about you in your own
words and understand what your mindset is coming into this decision. We
also want to know your long-term personal and financial goals, and determine
if those are in alignment with the brand.
Bringing your business partner and/or spouse to Discovery Day is important
because ensuring they are fully onboard and supportive of this investment
is a crucial element to your success. We want to see how you and your
spouse/partner interact with one another and how you view your respective
roles in the investment.
Attending a Discovery Day is an important step in evaluating any franchise
system. Experiencing first-hand the company’s culture and meeting
the executive and support team will give you a clearer picture of what
to expect. Use this to help you decide if this is a system you can execute
at a high level. Take this time to honestly assess if the business model
and company culture are a good fit for you.
