This Sport Clips Haircuts Area Developer is Winning by Growing the Franchise Locally

GEORGETOWN, Texas (May 17, 2017)

Weber 2017 AwardJohnny Weber, a Sport Clips Haircuts area developer who oversees stores in seven states, is this year's Multi-Unit Franchisee Magazine 2017 Most Valuable Performer Award winner for a single brand. He has grown his Sport Clips business in less than nine years to include locations in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, North Carolina and Tennessee. In addition, he serves as area developer for four states, supporting other franchisees and helping them grow their businesses.


"Johnny started his career in franchising with Sport Clips Haircuts in 2008 in the Nashville, TN area and has built an empire of over 50 stores in seven states in only eight-and-a-half years," says Gordon Logan, Sport Clips Haircuts founder and CEO. "Johnny employs over 560 people and he and his team support a total of over 1,500 Sport Clips team members. He's even helped one of our Sport Clips stylists become a franchisee with several very successful locations. He is a bundle of energy, always supporting local communities, never met a stranger; we couldn’t have a better brand ambassador than Johnny Weber. Congratulations to Johnny for this award and his continued work in paving the way to success for Sport Clips franchisees and stylists."


Weber and his team celebrated the opening of their 54th store and plan to have 61 stores open by the end of 2017. "The Sport Clips franchise model is an all-around winner. Technology will not be a game changer in our industry…you can't get a haircut over the internet," Weber says. "Most of our franchisees have other jobs when they invest in their first stores. They're good at managing a business, but leave day-to-day operations to the haircutting pros.


"We offer top-notch, on-going training and an upbeat, comfortable place for stylists to work. And, clients have a relaxing, sports-themed atmosphere in which to check something off their to-do list…getting a great haircut without an appointment and getting on with their day."


Weber received the MVP Award at the recent Multi-Unit Franchising Conference in Las Vegas and is featured on the cover of this month's Franchise Business Review magazine.
