Dayton, OH – September 2013 – Sports Image®, a leader in the high school and youth sports marketing industry, has just awarded another Sports Marketing Franchise to Mr. Alvin Hill in the Charlotte, NC area. Sports Image® now has “local ownership” in 13 different states in just its first three years of franchising to help schools and organizations.
“As a consultant for the public school system I have seen the financial challenges schools and organizations have been up against” stated Mr. Hill. “Sports Image ® offered a unique business model that combines my passion for sports with the opportunity to help these organizations that play an instrumental part in influencing the youth of today.”
Since 2002, Sports Image® has helped schools and organizations obtain state-of-the-art equipment and much needed revenue for their athletic programs as budgets continue to dry up nationwide. The program has zero cost to the schools and organizations. Through Sports Image’s 5 different revenue opportunities and by leveraging existing relationships, they have given over $1,000,000 in cash and over $11,000,000 in equipment to schools and organizations throughout the United States and in Canada.
“We are very excited to have Alvin on our team,” stated Eric Horstman, President of Sports Image®. “His obvious enthusiasm, professionalism and networking in the school systems make for a great fit with Sports Image® and our mission to help schools and other grassroots organizations.”
“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 many franchisees across the nation helping individual schools and organizations achieve their goals.”
Mr. Hill adds, “Sports Image® brings a passionate team and support system that empowers creative thinking. With these core qualities and a focus on taking the PAY out of PLAY……everyone wins.”
