I can count on SPP Commercial Group to provide great locations, service to their tenants, and quick response for maintenance issues. They take care of their properties so I can take care of my business.”
Jarrod Durden, Owner of Sport Clips Franchises in Macon and Warner Robins
TENANT: In 2012 Jarrod Durden had a successful payroll service company but was considering buying a Sport Clips Franchise. Jarrod had been driving to McDonough for “The Sport Clips Experience” of watching sports on TV while getting a great haircut from guy-smart stylists who specialize in men & boys’ hair care. He knew the Middle Georgia area was lacking this resource and that the success of his franchise depended on 3 things – a great staff, a high traffic location, and a good landlord.
SPP SOLUTION: Being a lifetime resident of Macon, Jarrod was familiar with SPP Commercial and their respected reputation in the real estate industry. He had studied the areas well and knew they owned the complex he desired at Plantation Centre on Zebulon Road. This development was alongside the heavily traveled I-475 corridor and had several entry ways into the complex. The Chick-Fil-A drove traffic to the area and the development offered convenient shopping at Kroger, Lowes and a nearby Walmart. With 6 private schools within 5 miles of the salon, affluent families felt safe dropping their kids off for a haircut while running a quick errand in the same complex.
Jarrod opened his Macon store in September 2012, and it was so successful that he began looking for a second location in Warner Robins. He immediately contacted the SPP Team to see what was available. They helped him research the area and he picked a prime location at Lake Joy Pavilion. This upcoming development area had name-brand franchises like Mellow Mushroom, Wild Wings, Lowes, Goodwill and the Houston Lakes Cinemas attracted people from all over the Middle Georgia Area. Houston County High School and the Warner Robins American Little League complex were within 1 mile of the development which he knew would be a big draw for his new location.
PLAN FOR SUCCESS: Jarrod’s Sport Clips franchises are the only ones in the Middle Georgia Area. They have far exceeded his revenue expectations and he gives credit to his excellent locations and wonderful staff. While both the Macon and Warner Robins locations are in high traffic, affluent areas with great surrounding stores, the biggest benefit for Sport Clips has been the prime locations near school and athletic complexes which provide the clientele he is looking for. Sport Clips turned getting a haircut into fun experience for the entire family and SPP provided the perfect locations for Jarrod’s business to succeed.
