The Cowboy of Franchising: Gordon Logan – Founder of Sport Clips

In this episode we are joined by Gordon Logan, the iconic founder of Sport Clips- a franchise brand with over 1800 locations and growing.

A couple of things stuck out to me as unique in this episode. About two thirds of the way in, Gordon revealed a unique program Sport Clips implemented (for both philanthropy and employee recruitment) whereby franchisees allocate a small amount of funds every month automatically to be set aside for philanthropy and recruitment efforts. If that interests you, listen for it.

In this Episode we chatted about several topics, including:
*Life Before Sport Clips
*Founding Story
*Whats New Whats current at Sport Clips
*How to be the employer of choice
*Outlook on Technology
*Advice to emerging brands
