What does a former McDonald’s executive have to say about Great Clips?

“Haircare is like food — it’s not a fad. Sure, tastes and styles change, but, just as people will not stop eating, they won’t stop getting their hair cared for. That’s one reason this business has more “staying power” than many trendy businesses. “
