October 09, 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 Washington Square Shopping Center, in Bermuda Dunes, California.
"Our manager-run salon is conveniently located off Highway 111, 23 miles east of Palm Springs," said Goggins. "This retail center is anchored by Ralph's Grocery Store, HomeGoods furnishings and, 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."

Great Clips consistently ranks among Entrepreneur magazine's Franchise 500(R). Entrepreneur also ranks Great Clips as one of their Fastest Growing and one of America's Top Global Franchises for 2009.
