Great Clips Opens Franchised Salon in Cape Carteret, North Carolina
Franchise located in Carteret Crossing
May 13, 2009 // Franchising.com // Rob Goggins, vice president of franchise development for Great Clips, Inc., announced the Grand Opening of the company's newest franchised salon in Carteret Crossing, Cape Carteret, NC.
"This manager-run salon sits in a 77,000 square foot regional shopping center ideally situated on 20 acres at the gateway to Emerald Isle," said Goggins. "The development is anchored by Lowe's Food, Wachovia Bank, Sherwin Williams and is also home Carteret County's flagship ABC Store. A Lowe's Home Improvement store flanks the center and Walgreen's Pharmacy anchors the development's prime out parcel. The demographics of the area are well suited for our value-priced, no appointment necessary service.
"Our franchise owners open to a $55-billion hair-care industry. With more than $700 million in total system-wide sales, Great Clips is the industry leader. And we're in a growing market. People get their hair cut every four to five weeks, and our same-store sales have increased consistently for several years."
