The Supercuts Franchisee Association’s mission is to facilitate franchisee collaboration and development that will strengthen and increase the value of our investments in the Supercuts® brand.
The singular voice and staunch advocate of all Supercuts franchisees.
The brain trust of Supercuts history and best practices.
Supported by member dues and sponsorships from the vendor community.
Working Together Agreements
The agreement emphasizes mutual trust, collaboration, and a commitment to improving the long-term success of Supercuts. Both the franchisor and franchisees are independent entities working together with shared goals. They aim to enhance business sustainability and growth while maintaining operational standards. An Executive Council and Charter facilitate communication and decision-making between the parties.
Members can find the complete documents on Teams.
The Council meets monthly either in person or by conference call with representatives of Regis Corporation, including the Regis CEO, COO and other executive management to address issues of importance to the operations and profitability of the Supercuts salons.
