Over the course of the past weeks, Bell Buckle Holdings (OTC:BLLB) has been in focus for a number of reasons and one of those is the way in which its subsidiary unit Jump Start Sports signed up new franchises. Bell Buckle is involved in chasing growth in the youth sports and enrichment industry and in June 2022, that industry was valued at as much as $19 billion.
For instance, back in February this year Bell Buckle had come into focus after it announced that it had picked up the exclusive expansion rights for the baseball skill development academy Technique Tigers Baseball Academy, based out of Trumbull, Connecticut.
On the other hand, its subsidiary Jump Start Sports has been working on signing up new territories for franchise opportunities as well, and not too long ago, the company signed up its 4th and 5th territories in the state of Ohio. The Chief Executive Officer and founder of Jump Start Sports Rick Hart went on an interview with Proactive Investors earlier this week and spoke about it.
He spoke about his own credentials as a professional, who had started off in advertising 21 years ago. He spoke about these new sign-ups and noted that at first it started off slow but eventually it picked up the pace. He went on to add that there was a demand for such sports projects everywhere.
