About Pro Image Pro Image began in June of 1985 in Salt Lake City, Utah with the opening of a licensed sports apparel and accessories kiosk. This marked the beginning of a long and prosperous franchise venture. By October 1986, just one year after selling the first Pro Image franchise, the company was recognized by Venture magazine as one of the fastest growing franchise operations in the United States. In December of 1996 a private investment group consisting of current and past management purchased the Pro Image franchises from Rentrack Corporation. The following year, Pro Image completed the purchase of Prime Sports FanFair, a competing franchise based primarily on the East Coast. This purchase solidified the Pro Image chain as the world's largest sports fan shop, and one of the greatest franchising opportunities in the industry. Today, Pro Image has franchised stores throughout the United States. For more information, visit www.proimage.net.
