Sport Clips – Why Work For Us?



Headquartered in Georgetown, Texas, Sport Clips Haircuts is a sports-themed hair-care franchise for men and boys with more than 1750+ stores across the United States and Canada. Established in 1993 and franchised in 1995 by Gordon Logan, founder and CEO, the company is one of the nation’s leading franchises. The franchise is ranked in the Top 10 in the annual overall Entrepreneur 500 ranking and 22nd for its "exceptional growth," having opened 136 stores in 2017.

Founder and CEO Gordon Logan is a pioneer of the unique sports-themed haircutting franchise, including the development of the Sport Clips All-Star haircutting systems, operating procedures, and marketing programs.

Sport Clips is not only the first sports-themed hair salon franchise formed, but it is the only one listed in the Entrepreneur Magazine’s annual “Franchise 500” ranking.

Since 2013, Sport Clips has been the primary supporter of the VFW’s Sport Clips Help A Hero Scholarship program, which provides scholarships for service members and veterans for use of a post-secondary schools and trade schools.

Mission Statement

Our Mission Statement forms the foundation upon which our reputation and success are built. It reflects the core values required for us to provide the unique Sport Clips experience. Our Mission Statement tells everyone inside and outside of Sport Clips what is important and what they can expect from us.

"To create a Championship Haircut Experience for men and boys in an exciting sports themed environment."

Heart of a Champion

Coach Lou Holtz, former head coach of two national champion football teams, sets forth three rules for life that are applicable to the Sport Clips Team as they are to his football teams. These three rules are the guiding principles or values for all that we do at Sport Clips. We expect all of our Team Members to live by the following values:

Do What's Right.

Do Your Best.

Treat Others the Way They Want to be Treated.

Three Key Questions

There are three key questions we expect to be able to ask each other and have each answered in the affirmative.

Can I trust you?

Are you committed to excellence?

Do you care about me?

At Sport Clips we work hard, but we also play hard. Our Team Members enjoy fun competitions, contests and rewards, pep rallies and leaderships, and many experience our National Huddle each year.


Sport Clips + St. Baldrick's

Sport Clips has been a St. Baldrick’s supporter for many years and has generously committed to donating $1 million over the next three years.


Wayne McGlone Memorial Relief Fund

The Wayne McGlone Memorial Relief Fund was established in memory of Wayne McGlone, a much loved Sport Clips Area Developer who passed away unexpectedly in 2012, to support Sport Clips team members in need of financial assistance due to unforeseen emergencies and tragedies. Some of our first recipients were stylists who, along with their families, lost their homes to the Moore, Oklahoma tornado.


Help A Hero

Sport Clips Haircuts donated $1.4 million to the Veterans of Foreign Wars to help active duty U.S. service members and veterans further their education and reach post-military career goals. Through client and product partner donations, as well as Veterans Day contributions of $1 per haircut service, the franchise’s annual “Help A Hero” campaign was its most successful since the program began in 2007. Funds raised will benefit the VFW’s “Sport Clips Help A Hero Scholarship” program, which has provided more than 943 scholarships.
