June 03, 2011 // Franchising.com // Dayton, OH – A couple has just been awarded their 2nd sports marketing franchised territory in less than a year. Sports Image®, a leader in the high school sports marketing industry, announced that it has awarded its 12th overall franchise to Rod & Andrea Koch of Indiana. With their two exclusive territories – adjoining areas in Ohio and Indiana - the Kochs join nine other existing franchises in eight different states awarded by Sports Image® in just its first two years of franchising.
"The Kochs 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 Indiana have already greatly benefitted because of their execution of the Sports Image® systems. Now, they are going to be able to help schools and organizations in their hometown areas of Northwest Ohio."
"We are pleased to have the additional opportunity to support the schools and organizations in Northwest Ohio. We have a lot of friends in the area whose programs have experienced the effects of the recent economic downturn," states Rod & Andrea. "Hopefully, our efforts will give the local youth a break they wouldn't have had otherwise."
"We've been in business for 10 years helping schools and organizations but just recently turned our model into a registered franchise opportunity in the summer of 2009." said Mr. Horstman. "We are on pace to have 20 franchises operating across the country by the end of 2011."
Since 2002, Sports Image® has been helping high schools and other grassroots organizations to obtain state-of-the-art equipment and much needed revenue for their athletic programs as budgets are drying up nationwide. Through both its unique sports marketing concepts and existing relationships, Sports Image® has given over $700,000 in cash and over $8,000,000 in equipment to schools and organizations around the United States and in Canada.
Sports Image® (www.sportsimageinc.com) was founded in 2002 in Dayton, OH with the purpose of helping high schools and other grassroots organizations to obtain state-of-the-art equipment and much needed revenue for their athletic programs.
