Our fun, sports-themed, men's and boys' haircutting concept is so unique it has made us the fastest-growing haircutting franchise in the country with over 1,640 stores now open. Yet we still have plently of prime locations available. This is a great recession-resistant business that's all cash, no receivables, and no industry experience is necessary. Better yet, our semi-absentee / manager-run business model allows you to work ON your business, not IN your business.

Sport Clips Haircuts offers the freedom of being your own boss, with the security of an industry leader supporting you every step of the way. We have a 99.4% franchise continuity rate, an honor based on five years of real data, during which time only five Sports Clips stores have closed in the entire community. We have a tried-and-true model and we use proven training programs and advanced support tools to ensure that our franchisees have every chance of success.
