Sports Image® Offers New Territory Plans

Dayton, OH – March 2013

Sports Image®, a leader in the high school and youth sports marketing industry, announced today a new franchise territory plan called the “Home Run” option.  The new plan lowers the entry cost point for a Sports Image® franchise investment. Under the “Home Run” option, franchise buyers can work part-time or full-time to accomplish their goals.

“The Home Run option is the perfect solution for anyone that wants to build a secondary income stream or for those who want to begin a career transition without having to leave their current employment,” says Eric Horstman, President of Sports Image®. “To be able to help schools and grassroots organizations while creating personal income is the ultimate dream job of a lot of folks out there and the Home Run option will allow the Sports Image® franchise buyer to accomplish both.”

The “Home Run” option offers the franchise investor a license to use the Sports Image® brand, systems, proprietary products, and marketing resources to build their business from a home office without having to make a full-time commitment.

Sports Image® also offers a second territory plan called the “Grand Slam” option.  The “Grand Slam” option offers all of the same benefits offered under the “Home Run” option plus it provides geographic protections, products that are only available under the Grand Slam plan, and more support options.  Both the “Grand Slam” and the “Home Run” options offer a full complement of marketing solutions to sponsoring businesses while at the same time providing free equipment and revenue to schools and organizations.

Sports Image® has helped schools and organizations obtain state-of-the-art equipment and revenue at no cost since 2002.  Through its unique, grassroots sports marketing approach, Sports Image® has given over $1,000,000 in cash and over $11,000,000 in equipment to schools and organizations throughout the United States and Canada. In addition, Sports Image® was recently honored by being included on the prestigious list of Entrepreneur Magazine’s Top 500 Franchises of 2013.

“Sports Image® is the first national franchise to market through youth sports.  We’ve helped schools, clubs, community park & recreation departments, churches, and other youth organizations offset Pay-to-Play for over 11 years. In July 2009, Sports Image® franchised the organization to put fully vested business owners in local markets across the country,” said Mr. Horstman.

Sports Image® Franchisee in Colorado Awarded 2nd Territory

Dayton, OH & Aurora, CO – March 2013 – A Colorado couple has just been awarded their second Sports Marketing Franchised Territory in under a year.  Sports Image®, a leader in the high school sports marketing industry, announced that it has awarded Aaron & Traci Tattersall of Aurora, CO, the Southern Colorado market. This new territory will join with their current Denver metro market.  With the two exclusive Colorado territories, the Tattersalls join alongside Mr. Joseph Bland, owner of the northern Colorado market, to make a strong foothold enabling Sports Image® to help schools and organizations across the Centennial State.

“The Tattersalls represent the Sports Image® brand to its fullest,” said Mr. Eric Horstman, President of Sports Image®. “They are very worthy of this second franchise. Many organizations in Colorado such as Legend, Chaparral & Ponderosa high schools have already greatly benefited because of their execution of the Sports Image® systems.”

“We purchased our 1st Sports Image territory a year ago.  In one short year, we’ve given a lot of new equipment and over $16,000 to multiple schools in the Denver metro area,” said Traci Tattersall. “The Sports Image® model provides our corporate partners a unique and creative way to get their message into local high schools and other grassroots organizations.  We feel extremely blessed to be able to help others and to be in an industry that is not driven by our national or local economy.  We look forward to a great 2013!”

“Sports Image® is the first national franchise to market through youth sports.  We’ve been helping schools, clubs, community Parks and Recs and other youth organizations offset budget constraints for over 10 years. In July 2009 we franchised our organization to put vested business owners on the ground floor in local markets across the country,” said Mr. Horstman.  “We now have 20+ franchisees across the nation helping individual schools and organizations.”
