RECAP: 115 Years of a Western Tradition
We received our latest introduction to entrepreneurship in northern Colorado at our in-person meeting on March 13.  Trent Johnson, the owner of Greeley Hat Works, led us through a brief history of the company, founded in 1909, and his path to ownership of the company and its current level of world-wide success.  Trent, the fourth hat maker to own the company, has owned it since 1996.  The company creates high-quality custom hats, by hand and by human, to custom-fit the head of the customer.  They now supply hats to some 100 stores both in the US and world-wide.  READ MORE...
