September 02, 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 Great River Center, in Otsego, Minnesota.
"Our manager-run salon is conveniently located on 85th Street and County Road 42 in Otsego, which sits on the northwest edge of the Twin Cities metro area at the confluence of the Mississippi and Crow rivers," said Goggins. "This retail strip center is situated next to a Target Store and is, of course, anchored by our Great Clips. 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."
