May 13, 2015 // Franchising.com // Dayton, OH – Sports Image®, a leader in the high school and youth sports marketing industry, has awarded a Sports Marketing Franchise to Elisa Rivera-Hayes in the Katy, TX area. Sports Image® now has local ownership in 11 different states to help schools and organizations increase their revenue streams and get new equipment as the struggle for funding their athletic departments continues. “I've always wanted to own a business where I could make a difference,” said Ms. Rivera-Hayes. “I learned the importance of sports while raising two children with ADHD. With Sports Image®, I am able to make a difference in my community while also staying connected with my children's activities.”
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. In addition, Sports Image® also focuses on Event Management and runs one of the most recognized high school basketball events in the nation. Through Sports Image’s 5 different revenue opportunities and by leveraging existing relationships, they have given over $1,000,000 in cash and over $15,000,000 in equipment to schools and organizations throughout the United States and in Canada.
“We are very excited to have Elisa on our team,” stated Eric Horstman, President of Sports Image®. “Her passion for helping communities and creative thinking make 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 late 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.”
