Business Description: The franchisor is Pro Image Franchise, L.C. Franchisees operate a retail store featuring sports-related licensed products and sportswear with professional and collegiate sport emphasis.
Franchise Offer: The franchisor licenses and trains others to operate retail stores that sell professional and collegiate licensed sports-oriented products and sportswear under the trademark “Pro Image Sports.”
Financial Assistance: Neither the franchisor nor any agent or affiliate offers direct or indirect financing to franchisees, guarantees any note, lease or obligation of theirs, or has any practice or intent to sell, assign or discount to a third party all or any part of any financing arrangement of theirs.
Training and Assistance: The franchisor provides an initial training program for franchisees and their managers. Franchisees and their manager, if other than the franchisee, are required to attend and successfully complete a training program which is held at our headquarters or a place designated by the franchisor in Centerville, Utah. The length of training depends on franchisees’ prior experience, but should range from 3 to 5 days. The franchisor will also furnish franchisees with one of its representatives for at least 1 day before the store opening to train and consult with you in implementing the standardized procedures and techniques essential to the operation of your franchise store. The franchisor may provide additional, refresher or new manager training to franchisees, at their request.
Territory: Franchisees are granted a protected territory limited to the confines of the mall itself, if the store is located in a mall, and if the store is not in a mall, the territory will be the location of the shopping center where the store is located. This is a limited protected territory for the franchise business meaning that the franchisor will generally not establish another franchise, affiliate or company owned unit using the Pro Image Sports trademark within the territory.
Term of Agreement and Renewal: The length of the initial franchise term is 10 years or, at the franchisee’s request, the franchisor may agree, in its sole discretion, to make the term coterminous with the lease. If franchisees are in good standing at the end of the initial or applicable renewal term, they can enter into a new successor franchise agreement for up to two additional 5-year terms.
Obligations and Restrictions: Franchisees or an approved partner or family member must personally supervise the on-premises and direct operation of the Pro Image Sports Store, unless an employee who manages the store has completed the mandatory training and is approved by Pro Image Sports to act as the manager for the franchised store. The franchisor recommends on premise supervision by the franchisee. Pro Image Sports requires franchisees to offer and sell only those goods and services that Pro Image Sports has approved. Franchisees must carry and offer all goods and services that Pro Image Sports designates as required for all franchisees.
