Sport Clips Haircuts Promotes Jim Atkinson to Vice President of Franchise Development

May 17, 2019 // // GEORGETOWN, Texas - Jim Atkinson has been promoted by Sport Clips Haircuts to VP of franchise development. Jim is based in Poway, California and has been with Sport Clips since 2013, most recently serving in the role of senior director of franchise development. Prior to joining Sport Clips, Jim held development, operations and leadership roles with San Diego-based The UPS Store, Inc.

"Jim is respected in the franchising community and a valuable member of the Sport Clips Haircuts team," says Greg Smith, chief development officer for Sport Clips. "Jim continues to drive our vision of strategic growth across the country with the focus of bringing only the most qualified candidates into the system.”

?Jim will continue to work from the west coast with the Texas-based Sport Clips franchise development team to offer qualified candidates franchise opportunities in markets throughout the U.S. The owner-investor model works best for individuals who have "people leadership" and business experience, more than $200,000 in liquid assets, and a minimum net worth over $400,000. Candidates who meet these preliminary qualifications can explore the business in search of a mutual fit and, once approved, will need to make an initial investment ranging from $224,800 - $373,300. The sports-themed haircutting franchise aligns well with corporate professionals who are looking to build a business that can help them step away from their day job or create another source of income.
