STATE COLLEGE, Pa. – Penn State Athletics and its multimedia rightsholder, LEARFIELD’s Penn State Sports Properties, announce SERVPRO as the newest Athletics corporate sponsor. The multi-year agreement designates the 56-year-old company as “The Official Cleanup & Restoration Sponsor of Penn State Athletics” and “The Official Cleanup & Restoration Sponsor of Penn State Football.”
In 1967, SERVPRO began as a painting business owned by Ted and Doris Isaacson in Sacramento, California. Within a short time, they leveraged their background in cleaning and restoration to grow their company by offering franchises in the cleanup and restoration industry. Today, there are nearly 2,200 franchises across the United States and Canada.
“We’re absolutely thrilled to officially announce our sponsorship with both Penn State Athletics and Penn State Football,” said Brandon Tomlinson, SERVPRO’s Director of Marketing. “Having our two championship brands join forces is very exciting to all of us here at SERVPRO — we look forward to creating innovative crossover content, honoring first responders and veterans on gamedays, and pushing both brands in each of our respective marketplaces. We Are!”
