Leader in hair care for men and boys continues to expand rapidly throughout Canada
LONDON, ON, Oct. 27, 2015 /CNW/ - Sport Clips Haircuts, a modern-day barbershop concept and leader in hair care for men and boys, continues with their rapid expansion throughout Canada. The Canadian Master Franchisor has recently awarded its 104th franchise license, within three years of starting operations in Canada.
The franchise currently has 25 locations open across Canada (16 in Southern Ontario, 4 in Saskatchewan, 2 in Alberta and 3 in British Columbia), and is on pace to have a total of 40 Stores open by the end of 2016.
"We started our initial growth in Southern Ontario, and have since awarded a total of 8 licenses in Saskatchewan, 8 licenses in Alberta, and another 20 licenses in British Columbia," said Peter Kowal, President and COO of the Master Franchisor, Sport Clips Canada. "We are thrilled to have a growing presence in the Prairies and on the West Coast; it remains our goal to continue to attract superior Franchisees and open stores in strategic areas across the Country." With 25 Stores opened, Sport Clips Canada currently provides approximately 215 career opportunities for Managers and hair care Stylists across Canada.
Earlier this year, Sport Clips Haircuts was ranked 13 out of 40 in the Franchise Times "Fast and Serious" ranking of the "smartest growing brands." The Founder and CEO, Gordon Logan, notes in the report that one of the main reasons for the Company's growth is that there is no compromise when it comes to the quality of the Franchisees, and the real estate locations selected. "Our Franchisees come from very diverse backgrounds and all have strong business experience, which is what we look for most," said Mark Schiffner, CEO of Sport Clips Canada. "Our system is proven with over 1,400 locations in the US, so a strong business background is enough of an investment for our franchise model so that we may continue to be the leader in hair care for men and boys in North America."
Sport Clips offers Canadian owner/investor opportunities in 3-packs ($59,500 CDN), 5-packs ($84,500 CDN) or 10-packs ($147,000 CDN), with the goal of becoming the leading men's and boys' hair provider in each market developed. Sport Clips Canada is also a member of the International Franchise Association (IFA).
