This is the first franchise awarded in Virginia. The most recent joins 13 other franchises in 10 states awarded by Sports Image in its first two years of franchising.
â€œSince 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,â€ the company said in an announcement. â€œThe program has zero cost to the schools and organizations. Through its unique grassroots sports marketing approach and by leveraging existing relationships, Sports Image has given over $700,000 in cash and over $8,500,000 in equipment to schools and organizations throughout the United States and in Canada.â€
