July 06, 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 the Wanamaker North Shopping Center, in Topeka, Kansas.
"This manager-run salon is located on the northwest corner of SW 11th and Wanamaker Road, with easy access to I-470, which links to I-70 and to I-335," said Goggins. "The new center is home to several popular eateries including Jimmy John's Gourmet Sandwiches and Q'Doba Mexican Restaurant. 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.
