Pro Image Sports

The Pro Image Sports franchise is a leader in the sports licensed industry. Founded in 1985 by Chad and Kevin Olsen, the brothers opened the first Pro Image store at ZCMI Center in Salt Lake City, Utah. Unable to find authentic sports apparel for their children unless they attended a game, they wanted to open a business to never have that problem. The business became so successful that it began franchising a year later in 1986. The ideal candidate is passionate about customer service. No experience needed as you'll be provided with great support and training from the franchisor and corporate team.
