Great Clips is a franchised company with salons across North America. Each salon is owned and operated by a franchisee. Franchising is like being in business for yourself, but not by yourself.
It might sound overly simplistic, but that’s really how it works: you buy the right to put a well-known brand on an independent business you own. A brand is more than a sign on the door. It’s a whole way of doing business: products, services, employee training, store design, a perfected way of dealing with customers. All these things make up a brand, and that’s what you get.
What’s the role of a franchisee?
Franchisees are engaged, dynamic leaders that can follow a system and develop staff. Salons function day-to-day under the supervision of a manager, so franchisees are not required to be in salons. In fact, many of our franchisees keep their day jobs while running their Great Clips business. Our franchisees are savvy businesspeople that have a drive to be their own boss.
