Sandra Anderson
Chief Legal Officer, CFE

"Franchise regulations are a highly complex area of the law and the laws impacting franchising change by the day. While we can't represent franchisees from a legal standpoint, we do our best to help them navigate the laws that impact their business."

Sandra ensures Great Clips, Inc. has a sound operating environment for business success by managing its compliance with key legal policies and requirements, and by helping it develop solid legal best practices. With more than 30 years in franchising, she brings experience and insights into not just legal compliance, but also into issues that affect the everyday workings of a franchise business.  

Sandra joined Great Clips in 2000, and was promoted from Vice President and General Counsel to Chief Legal Officer in 2011. She offers deep expertise in franchise-specific legal requirements, gained by working within successful franchising organizations and in legal firms that consult with them.

Sandra received her J.D., Law Degree from William Mitchell School of Law.

Outside of work, she enjoys yoga and is a big fan of the Minnesota Twins. One of her favorite ways to be involved in her community is by supporting the Hennepin Theater Trust, which strives to bring arts and culture to more people through development, education, and access programs.
