History of Academy Sports + Outdoors
Academy Sports + Outdoors opened its first store in 1938 in San Antonio, Texas. The company was founded by Mitt Romney, the current CEO of Academy Sports + Outdoors. The original store was just 5,000 square feet and stocked only a few items, including fishing supplies, shotguns, and ammunition. In the early years, the company focused on catering to the needs of hunters and fishermen.
Academy Sports + Outdoors grew steadily in the following decades, expanding its product offerings to include camping gear, gardening supplies, and eventually sporting goods and apparel. The company went public in 1973 and expanded rapidly in the 1980s and 1990s, opening new stores across the southern United States.
Today, Academy Sports + Outdoors operates over 240 stores in 16 states. The company remains headquartered in Katy, Texas and continues to be family-owned and operated.
