Georgetown, TX — Sport Clips Haircuts, the nation’s leading men’s and boys’ hair care provider, reached its goal to have 1,000 stores by the end of 2012 with the landmark opening of the franchise’s new store in Springboro, Ohio. As the company enters its 20th year, Sport Clips has stores in 42 states and aggressive plans to open 225 locations in 2013. This past year, 161 new Sport Clips locations were opened in communities across the U.S. by local owners.

“When we started franchising Sport Clips in November 1995 with only one company store, we could only dream of reaching 100 locations, much less 1,000. Now I joke and tell people ‘I knew we’d get here, I just didn’t think it would take this long,’” says founder and CEO Gordon Logan. “Very few franchises or brands of any type reach this major milestone. It’s an affirmation of all the hard work by our support team, area developers, team leaders (franchisees), store managers, stylists and other team members that has gone into making Sport Clips the success it has become over the years.”

The company grew from its roots in Texas throughout the Midwest and Southeast for its first 10 years before expanding to the West Coast; then, after 3 years of building its brand there, Sport Clips moved into the Northeast in 2011.

“Having a solid track record has always been a higher priority to us than growth for growth’s sake. We looked at Springboro for a Sport Clips location several years ago, but decided at the time the market was not yet large enough. There has been significant growth since then, and we’re excited to be a part of the fast-growing local retail scene,” Logan adds.

The 1,000th Sport Clips store is owned by Eric and Jill Everman of nearby Liberty Township. The Evermans have plans to open two additional Sport Clips in central Ohio.

Sport Clips Haircuts is headquartered in Georgetown, Texas, and was established in 1993 by founder and CEO Gordon Logan. For more information, visit www.sportclips.com.
