1851 signals out Edward Logan as one of the most influential people in franchising for 2022
Continuing to make waves in the franchise world, Sport Clips CEO and president Edward Logan was recently nominated as a top franchise influencer for 2022, and now is among a list of 175 industry professionals deserving of recognition.
This year, 1851 Franchise teamed up with SeoSamba to come up with the list of most influencing people in franchising.
“Franchising is a big world, and it’s only getting bigger. Still, it’s a community, and a fairly close-knit community at that,” 1851 Franchise wrote. “That’s why it’s essential for everyone in the industry to know who’s who.”
And it’s not hard to see why Sport Clips’ Logan made the list.
Logan leads the largest franchise dedicated to men’s and boy’s hair care in the nation, with a footprint in every state, and was named president and CEO in 2020 to oversee the franchise founded by his father, Gordon Logan.
But to be sure, Logan has put in his dues since joining Sport Clips in 2010. Through sheer hard work and dedication, Logan has worked his way up the ladder the last 11 years, from managing one store to being an essential part of the company’s unprecedented growth. Under his tenure, Sport Clips has grown from 700 stores in 2010 to nearly 2,000 stores as of 2022.
Through it all, Logan has navigated the pandemic, and has planned for the future of the company through the Team Leader Advisory Council and Area Developer Council, which places a point of emphasis on recruitment, training, innovative technology and services.
And, most importantly, Logan has never forgotten the sense of philanthropy the company was founded on, as Sport Clips continues to better the lives of veterans through the VFW Foundation for Help A Hero Scholarships. Recently, the company has donated $1.55 million to veterans and service members through the program.
These days, Sport Clips is uniquely positioned to thrive in the wake of the pandemic as Americans across the country realize how important salon and spa services are to everyday life. Indeed, 80% of consumers say salon and spa services are one of the most significant factors in regaining a sense of normalcy, which has led to the industry being named one of the hottest categories for 2022.
As a result, Sport Clips is poised for a banner year.
“Sport Clips is stronger than ever before,” says Edward Logan, CEO of Sport Clips. “We’ve proven that a Sport Clips can be not only recession-resistant, but also pandemic-resistant. This is a very stable business with a straightforward business model. Now is a great time to invest in Sport Clips because as we head into 2022, we’re excited about the great real estate opportunities that exist right now, as well as the disruption of client behavior. As people change their buying behavior and their habits, the brands that go out and capture those clients are going to win an outsize market share. That’s going to be us because that’s how we’re thinking.”
