    Great job on this article that looks into the franchise haircare industry, Annie.

    I’m proud to say that my late father and I helped sell out the Cleveland area for Great Clips many years ago when we were brokers. Great company.

    This type of franchise business can be a good one for the right person.

    Nice list. It is nice to know that the franchises are open as well. It may be good for business owners who are interested in the beauty industry.
