Sport Clips Focus on Franchising: Gordon Logan CEO & Founder Interviews with Franchise Direct
When considering handling competition and remaining relevant in your industry, Gordon mentions the following point:
“I think it’s very important to identify your target audience, who you are going to appeal to, and zero in on that and stay focused. It’s real easy to get diverted but we have worked very hard to keep the concept simple and to keep focused on what we do best, and that’s cutting men and boys’ hair.”
The focused approach of this franchise has led to its continued success in accommodating the unique needs of men and boys, offering comfort and relaxation during haircuts, which for men and boys occur on a much more regular basis than female populations.
With its roots in Austin, Texas starting out in 1995, this franchise has plenty of industry experience which means that franchisees can rely on a system that has been streamlined for the benefit of customers, stylists at each location, and the entire franchise team.
When asked about the degree to which potential franchisees must have industry experience:
“Very few of our franchisees, or team leaders as we call them, have any industry background. I did not when I got into the business 34 years ago. So we’re looking for people who have a proven track record of success, building teams…people who have demonstrated the ability to create a team, to develop people, is what it’s all about.”
Sport Clips remains actively involved in seeking out the right veteran team leaders to operate locations across the U.S. Involved with VetFran, veteran discounts, and mentoring programs, Sport Clips executives consult with veterans to answer questions and streamline the overall process. Gordon holds a position on the Board of Directors of the Veterans of Foreign Wars foundation, with a continued focus on making veterans aware of their opportunities within the Sport Clips franchise system.
