Step 2: Tell Us a Little About Yourself

Complete the online Candidate Profile. The Candidate Profile provides general information for Sport Clips to evaluate your qualifications as a potential Team Leader.

Step 3: Evaluate the Fit

You will receive our Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD), which contains all of the pertinent information you will need in order to make an educated decision. You will also go through a series of meetings with the Franchise Development Representative for your area to help you learn what you can expect from us and what we will expect from you. Most applicants “don’t know what they don’t know” and our methodical and deliberate process is designed for transparency and to ensure your questions are answered satisfactorily. At the same time, we will learn more about your background, experience, skill sets, and goals. By the end of Step 3, we should each have a fairly good idea if we have a potential fit.

Step 4: Trust but Verify – Validation

We hope as you go through our rigorous evaluation process we gain your confidence in our franchise model and system, but we want you to have more than just our word. Talk to the Team Leaders who came before you and see how it has worked out for them. Find out how Sport Clips has helped many people just like you fulfill their personal and professional goals. We’ll put you in contact with other Team Leaders so you can connect with them.

Step 5: Discovery Day

Any championship sports team has great leadership and a strong front office. At Discovery Day, you will meet the people responsible for supporting the stores and get a good feel for the team you will be potentially partnering with. Our Leadership Team will be engaged throughout Discovery Day and you will have opportunities to ask them questions directly.

Step 6: Award the Franchise

Immediately following Discovery Day, the Leadership Team will review your application and make a final determination on awarding licenses. You will be contacted in 24 to 48 hours as to whether we feel Sport Clips will be a good fit for you and for us. If approved, you will then move forward with signing the franchise agreement, after a mandatory Federal Trade Commission (FTC) seven-day waiting period.
