Why Great Clips

Established in 1982, Great Clips is the largest brand in the hair care industry. Our salons are conveniently located in strip malls in 138 markets throughout the U.S. and Canada. No appointments are necessary for men, women, and children to get haircuts and perms at competitive prices. These services are provided by professional licensed stylists with advanced training from one of 70 Great Clips area training centers.

Additionally, our business model combines three elements: convenience, value, and quality. We're open evenings and on weekends, and we're ready when the customers walk in. We think people should feel like they've got the freedom to come in whenever they want and not have to wait a long time. Our typical waits are less than 10 or 15 minutes. We value our customer's time and we want to honor that for them.

Let's hear from one of our franchisees

"Initially, I really anticipated opening one or two stores, but the business got to be so successful that it made sense for me to leave my existing job as a vice president and devote full time to growing my Great Clips business even further."
-Jim Hemak, over 30 locations

Let's hear from one of our board members

"I started with McDonalds in 1959. I had the opportunity to work with the top people when it was an infant company. I remember it well and I am seeing the same things now at Great Clips. Even though it's a different industry, Great Clips is very similar to where McDonalds was 35 years ago and is going through the same decision-making processes today that we went through then. We figured out, over time, how to leverage the resources of our franchisees and keep our franchisees happy at McDonalds and we are doing the same thing at Great Clips."
-Shelby Yastrow - Former Executive Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary of McDonalds from 1978-1998; Member, Great Clips Board of Directors, 1996-Present

Great Clips is an executive's decision that offers an established path to successful multi-unit business development. A true test for any successful franchise concept is the number of franchisees who reinvest into the system and operate multiple units. At Great Clips, franchisees who have operated for over 5 years typically own 5 to 6 salons.
