Great Clips’ technology has helped the company grow at a fast clip.

By Kat Zeman, Knighthouse Media Senior Editor

Roughly 40 percent of Great Clips' customers carry the company inside their pockets and purses – and those numbers are increasing each year.

Great Clips, a Minneapolis-based hair salon franchise with more than 4,290 locations throughout the United States and Canada, is on the cutting-edge when it comes to technology. The company invested in proprietary technology that allows its customers to check in for haircuts from their computers or through the company’s iPhone and Android apps.

Rocket Fizz

Whether it’s a franchisee or a customer, Rocket Fizz aims to provide them

with a unique and fun experience.

By Bianca Herron

Robert Powells and Ryan Morgan founded The Rocket Fizz Soda Pop & Candy Shops LLC with one goal in mind in 2007: to provide people of all ages and backgrounds a good time. 

Rocket Fizz opened its first candy store in Camarillo, Calif., two years later, and Rich Shane became its CEO in 2012. Today, the franchise has 147 stores, seven of which are company owned, and it offers one of the largest and most diverse selections of glass-bottled soda pops and retro candies for sale in the United States.
