Sports Image® Welcomes New Franchise in Texas

 

Dayton, OH – June 2013 – Sports Image®, a leader in the high school and youth sports marketing industry, has just awarded another Texas Sports Marketing Franchise to Mr. Chuck McElroy and Mr. Wally Spence in the Houston area.  Chuck and Wally join Mr. Brad Kerley (Dallas) as the 2nd Territory opening in the Lone Star State. Mr. McElroy is also the first ex-professional athlete that has joined the Sports Image® Franchise Team having pitched for 13+ seasons in Major League Baseball (MLB) for the Cubs, Red, Astros among others. Sports Image® now has “local ownership” in 13 different states in just its first three years of franchising to help schools and organizations. 

“After being in the corporate world for 28 years, I was looking for way out. I met Chuck about 4 years ago after his MLB career and we both had a dream to help local kids in athletics,” stated Mr. Spence. “We found Sports Image® and their ideals lined up perfectly with our goals and we decided to purchase a franchise and make a difference in our backyard.”

“Since my retirement from Major League Baseball, I have continued to be involved in baseball and other youth sports. I wanted to find a way that I could help more kids through my experience in pro ball while creating a business opportunity,” said Mr. McElroy.  “Sports Image® is that way and I’m excited to get started.”

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 Chuck and Wally on our team,” stated Eric Horstman, President of Sports Image®. “Their business experience, connections and passion 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.
