Great Clips Announces Aggressive Plans To Franchise Tampa

June 10, 2009 // Franchising.com // Minneapolis, MN, Great Clips today announced plans to grow the brands footprint throughout the Tampa metro area.

"While other businesses are feeling the ill effects of the economy, Great Clips is proving resistant to its mood swings," said Rob Goggins, vice president of franchise development for the 2,700-unit hair salon franchise brand. "Now, in the greater Tampa market, we believe there's potential to secure quality real estate for qualified franchisees.

"Hair grows every day, and people are still getting their hair cut every four to five weeks. Our Great Clips business model is positioned on a no appointment, value-priced haircut, which does well when the economy is humming, but even better when consumers are trimming expenses. We're on track to welcome more than 100 new franchise owners into our system this year."

Great Clips employs nearly 30,000 stylists, who are trained at 63 centers throughout the system. "This is a great opportunity for smart investors who want to keep their day jobs and own an equity business. We're bringing a valuable and necessary service to Tampa and creating jobs at the same time."
