Great Clips franchising today announced plans to grow the brands footprint throughout the Oklahoma City metro area.
â€œWhile other businesses are feeling the ill effects of the economy, Great Clips is proving resistant to its mood swings,â€ said Rob Goggins, vice president of franchise development for the 2,700-unit hair salon franchise brand. â€œNow, in the greater Oklahoma City market, we believe thereâ€™s potential to secure quality real estate for qualified franchisees.
â€œHair grows every day, and people are still getting their hair cut every four to five weeks. Our Great Clips business model is positioned on a no appointment, value-priced haircut, which does well when the economy is humming, but even better when consumers are trimming expenses. Weâ€™re on track to welcome more than 100 new franchise owners into our system this year.â€
Great Clips employs nearly 30,000 stylists, who are trained at 63 centers throughout the system. â€œThis is a great opportunity for smart investors who want to keep their day jobs and own an equity business. Weâ€™re bringing a valuable and necessary service to Oklahoma City and creating jobs at the same time.â€
