Franchise Gator Names Sport Clips as Best Business on Franchise 100 Ranking

Haircutting Franchise Recognized as Great Investment in the Inaugural Ranking of Top Franchises

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - Feb 10, 2014) - Sport Clips, the Georgetown, Texas-based haircutting salon franchise, was revealed today as the No. 1 business on Franchise Gator's inaugural Franchise 100 ranking.

Franchise Gator has released the list of businesses that placed at Nos. 2-100 over the past couple of weeks, garnering a lot of interest as the franchise industry gears up for the International Franchise Association's annual convention in New Orleans Feb. 22-25.

"While many franchises we reviewed received high marks, Sport Clips was stellar across the board," said Eric Bell, General Manager of Franchise Gator. "It's a terrific brand to hold the monumental first No. 1 spot on Franchise Gator's Franchise 100. We're very excited for them."

The intention of the Franchise Gator ranking is to shine the spotlight on franchise investments that are less expensive than some of the better-known national brands, which sometimes have an initial buy-in of $1 million or more.

"Sport Clips is honored to be selected as the No. 1 franchise," said Gordon B. Logan, Sport Clips CEO and Founder. "Over our 20 years of franchising, we have always put the success of our team leaders, our franchisees, as our No. 1 priority since we realize that our success depends on their success. To see these efforts result in consistent industry-leading same-store sales growth year after year and the extremely high success rate of our team leaders -- these are our proudest accomplishments."

Bell said Franchise Gator reviewed hundreds of Franchise Disclosure Documents to compile its ranking. Franchise Gator rated franchise systems on such criteria as:

  • Financial stability and health
  • Franchisee profitability
  • Growth over a period of years
  • Transparency of key buyer information
  • Market strength for a system's goods and services
  • Long-term sustainability
  • Franchisee satisfaction
