High-tech custom garment decoration franchise business Big Frog Custom T-Shirts & More is leaping at the start of 2017. Last year, the chain experienced its biggest growth ever recorded, and 2016 marks the sixth year in a row that the franchise has seen double-digit growth in revenue from units and the eighth consecutive year of double-digit revenue growth system-wide. All of this tremendous growth comes along with rapid expansion into new markets for the custom-decorated apparel retail brand.
System-wide gross revenue was $18.4 million in 2015 and $22.3 million in 2016, representing a 20.7 percent increase in just one year alone. The brand also awarded 15 agreements for new franchises and opened seven stores in 2016, with nine more locations set to open in 2017's first quarter. Existing store success also saw a boost, with the average unit volume for open stores going over $332,000 in 2016, up 12.1 percent from the year before.
Capitalizing on this astounding success, the garment decorating brand is planning to add at least 18 new franchise stores over the next year, bringing its total number of franchises to over 100. Currently, this brand has more than 70 locations across the US and is a top franchise opportunity thanks to its record-breaking year.
President Tina Bacon-DeFrece spoke of the brand's pride at how far they have come over the past year and says they are eager to continue raising the standard for the garment-decorating industry. According to Bacon-DeFrece, it's the success of the individual stores that has set the tone for continuing growth system-wide and further development for the new year.
Utilizing a distinct Direct to Garment printing system that bonds dye to fabric molecules and prevents peeling, cracking and fading of the decorating images, Big Frog is able to offer customers leading technology and personalized services. Customers can have their garments decorated with the design of their creation right in store for a convenient and fast service that is above and beyond the competition.
