Great Clips Franchisee Offers Fundraising Program For Fremont Schools As Part Of New Salon Opening

Local Technology Executive Opens New Salon on Osgood Road in Fremont

February 08, 2018 // // FREMONT, CALIF. - Today, technology executive and Silicon Valley veteran Ray Solnik opens a new Great Clips salon on Osgood Road. The salon, located in the epicenter of the technology industry, brings consistently great haircuts to the bustling high-tech Bay Area and provides a unique opportunity for the community to support the Fremont school system.

As part of the salon’s grand opening promotion, Fremont-area students can participate in a unique fundraising program for their schools. For a nominal cost of $75, Great Clips customers can redeem five haircuts valuing $15 each. Upon purchase, $15 from each sale will benefit the seller’s local school. The everyday price for a haircut at this salon is $17 for adults and $15 for seniors and kids ages 10 and under.

At the new salon, customers will enjoy the high-quality, affordable hair care that’s provided at 4,200 Great Clips salons across North America. To further celebrate the salon’s grand opening, stylists are giving haircuts for as low as $6.99 for a limited time. To save time, customers are encouraged to add their name to the waitlist in advance using Great Clips’ system-wide technology Online Check-in.

“Over the years, I’ve enjoyed being a part of Silicon Valley’s leadership in the technology industry,” said Ray Solnik. “As a member of the number one brand in retail hair care, I’m thrilled to open a Great Clips salon to provide quick and consistently great haircuts for the 230,000 people that call Freemont home.” With over 15 years of experience successfully running technology companies, Solnik set out on a new business venture as a Great Clips franchisee in 2009.

“Since I opened the doors to my first Great Clips location in Sunnyvale, I have been blown away by the amount of support I’ve received as a Great Clips franchisee,” said Solnik. “Great Clips provides a wonderful lifestyle business for franchisees. As more Silicon Valley veterans embark on new career paths or enter semi-retirement, I strongly encourage them to join the Great Clips franchise community.”
