Show some love for your favorite franchise

National Franchise Appreciation Day is coming up soon—yes, it’s a thing! 

According to a holiday calendar website, National Franchise Appreciation Day is celebrated in the U.S. on the Saturday before Labor Day. (For 2022, that’s Sept. 3.) It’s a day to recognize the thousands of franchise businesses that serve their local communities with products and services.

At Great Clips, we’ll be active on social media that day to shine a spotlight on franchisees who represent the best of what it takes to be a successful Great Clips franchisee. Be sure to follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to see our posts that day.

One thing we love to celebrate about our franchisees—all year long—is how they support each other. Check out these blog posts from our archives in which Great Clips franchisees share the best advice they got from a colleague and a few of their own best practices.
