With the unprecedented events we experienced in 2020, it was even more important for the Sport Clips Haircuts team to continue to support our ever-growing network of more than 420 franchisees and 1,800 locations across the U.S. Through our dedicated leadership team, we were able to quickly create and implement new programs to protect our franchisees, as well as our millions of clients.
Enhanced protocols, such as our "Sport Clips Clean Certified" program, in which stylists complete training courses on cleaning, disinfection, and sanitation specific to protect our clients and fellow team members from COVID-19, have been key to ensuring everyone who walks in the door at a Sport Clips location is comfortable while getting a haircut. The convenience technology brings through the various ways clients can access Online Check In, including website, mobile app or smart speaker device, has allowed franchisees to remain growth-focused while navigating this new normal.
In particular, franchise owner Amanda Donovan recently shared with Franchising.com how Sport Clips helped her manage her way through mandated shutdowns and emerge fully-prepared and ready to operate. Donovan, owner of five stores in West Virginia and South Carolina, credits comprehensive communication and the solid game plan created by Sport Clips leadership for the ability to navigate through pandemic restrictions and remain strong and successful through it all.
“When the shutdowns were looming and eventually happened, I was so reassured when Sport Clips was already in full swing to help Team Leaders from every angle, whether it be PPP, PPE, continuous webinars, reopening plans and support,” explains Donovan. “Many of us were able to reopen when states allowed because of the support SCI provided us, while many of our competitors couldn’t because they didn’t have access to the PPE supplies or a reopening plan.”
