100 More Stores to Go …

Sport Clips Haircuts Opens 900th Store

Sport Clips Haircuts just keeps on growing. Its goal is to have 1,000 Sport Clips stores open across the country by the end of 2012, and let me share an industry insider tip: Don’t bet anything against these guys. They do SO MANY things right!

Recently, Sport Clips CEO and founder Gordon Logan (yes, the very same person who’s the past president of the International SalonSpa Business Network), Sport Clips Northwest area developers Phil and Laurie Brown, local Sport Clips store owner Bruce Milliken and others celebrated the opening of Store No. 900 in the Portland, Oregon, area (17650 SW 63rd Ave., Lake Oswego, Oregon).

“Here in the Portland area we’ve added seven new stores in the past seven months, adding 70 new jobs to the local economy,” said Logan during the grand-opening festivities. “Over the next few years we see 70 Sport Clips stores in Oregon and Washington employing some 700 people.”

Did you know that the Sport Clips franchise ranks in Entrepreneur Magazine’s Top 20 “fastest growing franchises” and in the Top 100 in the “Franchise 500,” in the Top 10 in Forbes’ “Top 20 Franchises To Start,” and in the Top 50 in Dun & Bradstreet’s AllBusiness.com “2012 AllBusiness AllStars”?

Now who wants in?
