Great Clips Opens 65th North American Training Center

Leading hair-salon brand opens 1,400-square foot facility outside of Boston, MA

June 29, 2009 // // Minneapolis, MN – Great Clips, Inc., today formally announced the opening of their 65th training center west of Boston, in Southborough, Massachusetts.

"This new state-of-the art training center continues to demonstrate our commitment to support our franchise owners as we expand our brand footprint," said Rob Goggins, vice president of franchise development for the 2,700-unit international salon chain. "Our recession-resistant business is booming as consumers are shopping for value. We want to make certain that, as we add salons, we have the infrastructure in place to ensure that our owners meet their goals."

Great Clips recently opened a 1,350-square foot training "centre" in Vaughan, Ontario to support the brand's continued growth throughout the Toronto-Hamilton DMA. All the training facilities across the U.S. and Canada are venues to instruct stylists in the latest grooming techniques and customer-service protocols, as well guiding managers in their day-to-day salon operations. The centers are also available for owner meetings, vendor presentations, and regional conferences.

"We have several more training center openings planned this year including a high-profile facility we've earmarked for Washington, D.C.," says Goggins. "Our nation's capital is another underserved market where our value-priced, no appointment necessary service is in monumental demand."
