Just Cuts named ‘Best Lifestyle Franchise’ at the Global Franchise Awards

Just Cuts was named ‘Best Lifestyle Franchise’ at the Global Franchise Awards. The Global Franchise Awards recognise organisations committed to international growth, celebrating the brands that are working hardest to advance the cause of international franchising.

There are currently over 220 Just Cuts salons across Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.

The judging panel included CEOs from both the British and International Franchise Associations, and Mary Aldred, CEO of the Franchise Council of Australia.

Just Cuts CEO Amber Manning accepted the award at the virtual ceremony from the Just Cuts Academy in Sydney’s Sutherland Shire, thanking salon Owners, Stylists and Clients.

“On behalf of our very talented, hard-working Franchise Owners, our teams in 220 salons across Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom and our Academy team, thank you,” said Amber. “On behalf of our Founder and Managing Director Denis McFadden, an even bigger thank you.”

“To be recognised like this on the international stage is such a significant honour for both our brand and our people -especially given the last twelve months we have lived through together.” 

Despite the COVID challenge, 2020 represented a year of milestones for Just Cuts.

Last year marked 30 years of business success for Just Cuts Franchise Owners globally. It also marked 30 years of business success for the first Just Cuts Franchise Owner Leigh-Anne Brosens in the Sydney suburb of Engadine- a milestone she shared with her long serving Stylist Lynette.

“We are incredibly proud of the fact that more than half of our Owners are multi-salon Owners, and that we’ve delivered for our Owners, Stylists and Clients for 30 years and counting,” added Amber.

“We’re immensely proud of the fact that we are the largest hairdressing company in the Southern Hemisphere and that our UK family continues to grow and grow rapidly.”

“This award reflects the passion and professionalism of each and every person who is part of our success, whether past, present or future. And on behalf of each and every one of us, thank you!”
