Great Clips Opens Franchised Salon in Havelock, North Carolina
Franchise located in the Sound of Freedom Shoppes
August 28, 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 Sound of Freedom Shoppes in Havelock, North Carolina.
"Our manager-run salon is conveniently located on US Highway 70, within earshot--the sound of freedom--of the Marine Corps Air Station runway at Cherry Point, the largest Marine Corps air station on the East Coast," said Goggins. "Our Great Clips is across the street from Wal-Mart and next to anchor tenant Hibbett Sporting Goods. 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."
