GEORGETOWN, Texas (May 12, 2016)

Lee HillSport Clips Haircuts franchisees Jared Lee and Val Hill of Chandler, Arizona are featured among the “Top Franchisees in America” in a CNBC special report on the network website.

The 52 franchisees honored were selected in cooperation with Franchise Business Review, a national franchise market research firm that performs independent surveys of franchisee satisfaction and franchise buyer experiences.

“Jared and Val have done a tremendous job with their Arizona stores and team members, and we’re proud they are being showcased along with other stand outs in the franchising industry,” says Sport Clips Haircuts Founder and CEO Gordon Logan. “We’re honored as a brand and for our franchisees to be recognized by Franchise Business Review and CNBC.”

For consideration as a “Top Franchisee” for the CNBC piece, the franchise first had to be a “top performing brand” based on franchisee satisfaction with high franchisee tenure, system growth, return on investment – based on average income to investment and have been in franchising a minimum of five years. As a top performing franchisee team, Lee and Hill were rated on satisfaction, tenure and performance.

Sport Clips Haircuts presented Lee and Hill with The Logan Trophy, the franchise’s highest honor, at this year’s national meeting and named them Franchisees of the Year in 2012. Together, they have 18 greater Phoenix area Sport Clips Haircuts locations with plans to open 19 more Arizona stores in the next five years.
