September 07, 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 Liberty Plaza Shopping Center, in Youngstown, Ohio.
"Our manager-run salon is conveniently located on Belmont Avenue, off Interstate 80," said Goggins. "This retail strip shopping center backs to a Wal-Mart, and is anchored, of course, 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."
