Big Frog Custom T-Shirts' #1 Franchise Business Ranking
Entrepreneur Magazine has recognized Big Frog Custom T-Shirts & More as the top franchise opportunity in its category. The high-tech garment decorating brand, which gives customers the chance to design their own apparel, earned the ranking partly because of its reliability as a brand and its stellar growth.
More than 1,000 brands applied for Entrepreneur's 2018 Franchise 500 list, which sees the publication evaluating brands in over 100 areas, including financial stability, franchisee support and strength of brand.
Brand President Tina Bacon-DeFrece says the custom clothing company is thrilled about the award. She added that since the company was founded, the entire team has been focused on improving franchisee experiences and helping them be successful, and it's that collaborative effort that has brought Big Custom Frog to where it is today.
Reaching 100 franchise business locations in under ten years is an uncommon feat in the franchise space, and this custom apparel brand has enjoyed system-wide gross revenue growth in the double digits for the last nine years; it was up 15 percent in 2017 alone. It's also been rapidly expanding, with 2018's goals including the signing of another 25 franchise agreements.
Bacon-DeFrece noted that now is an exciting time to join this leading custom apparel franchiser. Since the company has been able to connect with and foster many entrepreneurs across various communities, they now have the right people and tools in place for the future.
Big Frog brings personalized service to the local markets it serves and combines leading technology with creativity. Its unique design technology enables it to offer customers personal, fast and convenient service that goes well beyond that offered by its competition. This brand has Direct to Garment printing, which bonds dye right to the molecules of the fabric. This means garments can be washed in cold or hot water with color-safe bleach and the custom image will not fade, crack or peel.
Part of a $50-billion industry in the US that is still growing, Big Frog is seeking franchisees in several markets to continue its strong growth rate. A franchise opportunity with this brand has a fee of $39,500 plus around $100,000 for equipment, inventory and other essentials. This franchiser also requires franchisees to have $50,000 in working capital available when a location opens.
