GEORGETOWN, Texas (September 12, 2014) – Sport Clips Haircuts, the nation’s leading men’s and boys’ hair care provider, has been named one of the top two “Best for Vets: Franchises” in the 2014-2015 Military Times rankings.
“As a U.S. Air Force veteran, I’m proud that many of our franchised stores are owned by veterans of our armed services,” says Founder and CEO Gordon Logan. “For more than two decades, we’ve been committed to supporting the nation’s military and our veterans. Similar to the military, Sports Clips has a strong set of core values, outstanding training and support, and we offer franchise investment discounts to military through the International Franchise Association’s VetFran program.”
Military Times cites that it focused on financial incentives, brand performance and policies that cater to veterans and reservists when conducting and scoring the “Best for Vets: Franchises” survey, which includes a 110-question analysis of a franchise’s efforts to provide veterans an environment for success.
The complete list of rankings can be found in Military Times EDGE magazine and online at MilitaryTimes.com.
