The Institute for Family Business at Baylor University named Sport Clips Haircuts as the fastest growing business as the 28th annual 2017 Texas Family Business of the Year Awards. The event recognized "outstanding firms who demonstrate a commitment to business continuity while serving their employees, community and industry."

"Sport Clips Haircuts began here in Texas with my family 25 years ago. We're grateful to the other families and individuals who've come alongside us as franchisees and team members to make more than 1,700 locally-owned stores the place to go for a great haircut," says Gordon Logan, founder and CEO of Sport Clips. "More than 100 stores are opening in the U.S. and Canada each year, and we look forward to that growth continuing to provide new opportunities for franchisees, stylists, and even more locations for an MVP haircare experience."

Sport Clips opened in June 1993 in Austin and made the decision to franchise in 1995. From Austin, Sport Clips expanded to Houston, Dallas, and to help keep travel expenses at a minimum, based its further expansion plans on “where Southwest Airlines flew.” It took five years to open the first 50 stores. By 2007, Sport Clips celebrated the opening of its 400th and 500th store in the same year. In 2012, the franchise expanded into Canada. By 2015, Sport Clips had a presence in all 50 states with an opening in Maine and a year later, celebrated the opening of its 1,500th and 1,600th stores in 2016. The brand continues to grow with over 1,700 locations and is the career choice of more than 17,000 professionals.

Stacey Soble | September 19, 2018

Apothecanna’s philosophy, aromas and textures perfectly resonated with the Habitude guest, so Inez Gray determined 4/20 was the perfect date to co-brand with the cannabis-derived line on a Mother’s Day campaign, because “What do Moms need more than weed cream?” The spa sold more than $45,000 worth of gift cards, attributing its success to the controversial and exciting campaign.

STAMP 2018: Try a Guerilla Marketing Campaign

Stacey Soble | September 19, 2018

Two of RedBloom Salon's master stylists took the lead on a marketing project that had some legs. Without telling the team why, they asked each member why they love what they do and collected the responses through an online form. On a Monday, when the salon was closed, the team leaders used window markers to write the responses on the salon’s windows to surprise both the guests and the team members.
