In the early 1990s, Gordon Logan, Founder and CEO, recognized the huge potential, and relative lack of competition, in the men and boys’ haircut market. He wanted to create a place where guys could take care of one of life’s necessities—a haircut—and say, “This is my kind of place, I feel comfortable here,” when they walked in the door.
Sport Clips was the first truly national brand to exclusively target the 150 million men and boys who need a haircut place to call their own. As a Sport Clips franchisee, you will have the ability to own a business that capitalizes on the men’s and boys’ haircut segment of a $60 billion hair and beauty market.
We’ve been franchising since 1995 and our mission remains the same… to provide a “championship haircut experience for men and boys in an exciting sports environment”. Sport Clips offers men and boys more than just a haircut – we offer them a unique, sports-themed experience they can’t get anywhere else. The “MVP Haircut Experience” includes a precision haircut, massaging shampoo, hot steamed towel treatment, and neck and shoulder message while enjoying sports on TV.

“When we had the chance to meet everyone at the Sport Clips’ Discovery Day we knew that this was for us. The level of commitment from the franchisor to support the success of franchisees seemed to be second to none. In anything that we chose to do, we wanted to make sure that we remained “Client-Focused” and “Quality-Driven”. Everyone that we have worked with at Sport Clips has had this same mission and it’s unwavering… Now, five years later, we are currently working on opening our sixth Sport Clips and are more excited than ever about what the future holds!” - Tim Scott, Sport Clips Franchisee in Nebraska
“I choose Sport Clips because of all the hair care concepts it had the most streamlined system. Other concepts deal with more training, such as chemical work and also staying on top of women's haircut trends. Sport Clips has a target niche that allows us to really focus on the experience that our ideal customer wants. We don't have to try to be everything to everyone.” - Jesse Keyser, Sport Clips Franchisee in Illinois, Kentucky, Missouri and Michigan
