It’s been said everyone has a story…and Stone Ward truly believes this about the businesses and people with whom we work. The tale of how Gordon Logan founded and built the franchise Sport Clips Haircuts is one worthy of telling. As our client, we nominated Gordon for the International Franchise Association’s (IFA) Entrepreneur of the Year award, one of its highest honors. And, the chapters of his hard work, determination and achievements earned him the honor this year at the IFA’s Annual Convention in Las Vegas. He may be most recognizable by his iconic cowboy hat, but we recognize him for the friend, client and story of entrepreneurial success he is to us all.

Earlier this year, Sport Clips ranked #9 in Entrepreneur’s “Franchise 500,” its first time to make it into the top 10. The franchise opened both its 1,500th and 1,600th stores and reached $3 billion in haircut sales in 2016.
