Expect a grand opening soon
In the next couple weeks, Great Clips will have a grand opening in El Dorado.
"We're hiring staff .... You have to have stylists. We like to hire six or seven stylists minimum to make sure we can handle our load. Right now, we have around four stylists. So, we'll need a few more," Jeff Bennett, Great Clips partner, said.
Bennett thinks El Dorado is a good opportunity for Great Clips.
"Our partnership group has been looking to expand in and around Wichita. We did research and saw El Dorado with a great community there .... We saw demand and thought our brand would be well established there .... We had people scout around and determined the location in front of Walmart would be a great site," he said.
Bennet looks forward to establishing Great Clips in El Dorado.
"We hope that the community will accept us and be excited about being there .... We know we're the new guys in town, so we want to provide excellent service, and we hope that they come and see us," Bennett said.
Bennett mentioned that the electronic and online elements of Great Clips services set the brand apart from competitors.
"We do have an appoinment and you can check in online. That's what really makes us successful and sets us apart from others .... It's a huge benefit for people," he said.
