Tournament Promotions was founded by Mike Stalls in 1988. It is a business that offers golf tournament contests, gifts, auctions, and promotional items with a special push toward helping charities maximize their benefits and businesses create more brand awareness.
We offer a wide variety of unique auction items allowing a franchisee to have a year-round business. Part of our program is the ability to provide multiples of the same item. If two people are in a bidding war we can make two happy winners and double the money the charity brings in on that particular item.
We offer a unique Player Gift Program that provides personalized gifts to each player. We provide enough inventory to ensure every player gets the perfect fitted gift, and take back whatever is not needed. All free of charge, saving charities and sponsors money.
This is a proven business model, that offers entrepreneurs an opportunity to grow a business in an industry that they are passionate about.
A non-exclusive territory will be granted containing an APR (Area of Primary Responsibility). Each APR will be defined by the Franchisor depending on a number of factors including the density of population, number of potential tournaments or events, the general geographical market, the existence of competitors, and a number of other factors. The franchise operator must restrict their direct marketing and solicitation to the predetermined APR (which will typically contain a 300,000 to 500,000 population).
There are many disadvantages when providing an exclusive territory to a franchisee, (i.e. territories granted later turn out to be too large, markets become sold out leading to ceiling of value, etc.)
Another disadvantage to offering an exclusive territory is the possibility that the decision can limit the Franchisor’s ability to saturate a given market if the demographics of that area change. Since granting an exclusive territory contractually prohibits Tournament Promotions from selling additional franchises in a market area that may otherwise support them, it is essential to grant the smallest territories possible that is consistent with the scalability and viability of the franchise.
