Gordon Logan, founder and CEO of Sport Clips Haircuts, will be one of 13 “American Job Creators” in the Speaker’s Box tonight during President Obama’s address to Congress tonight. Obama plans to unveil his newest job proposals. Logan will be amongst those representing The International Franchise Association (IFA), as a guest of House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio.
“As a young system that is growing at over 100 locations each year, our system has a great need for growth capital,” said Logan of Sport Clips Haircuts. “Delays and regulatory uncertainties regarding financing have cost us 50 to 100 locations that could have been opened and which would have provided jobs the past three years if we had better access to credit and more certainty in the Small Business Administration program.” —Kristen Heinzinger
