Debra Sawyer, a Sports Clips “rock star” franchisee who owns over 20 locations throughout Virginia and Florida, has been a leader in the Sports Clips organization and a fierce advocate for women in franchising. Sawyer continues to lead the way as the coronavirus pandemic ravages American public health and its economy.
Sawyer moved quickly to set up a relief fund for her employees affected by the disease and its economic impact. And across her stores, like the rest of the Sports Clips family, she has invested time, talent and energy into the Sports Clips “Help a Hero” Scholarship program that assists veteran employees and business owners with funds to further their education or become entrepreneurs.
IFA applauds the steps that Debra Sawyer and her team have taken to support employees, uplift communities, and ensure the long-term vibrancy of franchise businesses like hers.
