A Brand You Can Trust
A strong quality brand is one that establishes its place in the heart of a culture, and reinforces the connection a customer feels to that brand. And one of the single most important things that comes with purchasing a franchise versus opening a start-up business is the ability to use an established brand name. After more than 30 years, our customers have come to expect the convenience and quality experience that's synonymous with the Great Clips brand.
Why Choose Great Clips?
- Great Clips is the largest single haircare name brand in North America. We have a nearly 50% market share of all franchised hair salon units. As measured in units, the next closest brand falls short by more than 30%--and the gap grows wider each year.
- Owners can keep their professional careers—our salons are manager-run.
- We have more than 1,000 owners who have opened more than 3,900 salons.
- Our owners believe in multi-unit ownership—our average owner operates 5-6 salons after five years.
- We don’t just say we're 100% committed to owner success, we prove it. To eliminate conflict of interest issues, we are not in the business of operating corporate salons; our salons are owned by franchisees.

Withstanding the Test of Time
Great Clips, Inc. was established in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1982, when most people received haircuts in one of three ways: in full-service salons, from mom-and-pop barbershops, or at home. From those humble beginnings, Great Clips has grown to have more than 3,400 salons. See the timeline to see how we did it.
