"We started the business 25 years ago this year, and this ranking
signifies Sport Clips continues to be a strong, expanding concept,"
says Gordon Logan, founder and CEO of Sport Clips Haircuts. "Eight
years in a row as a 'fastest growing' franchise is more than a
compliment to the brand, it's further affirmation that Sport Clips
is a winning investment for those who join our team."
"For business owners who want to grow their brand quickly, franchising
is a compelling and often effective option,” says Jason Feifer,
editor in chief of
Entrepreneur. “The companies on this list prove that well, having opening a combined
total of more than 10,000 new franchises in just one year.”
