Orlando, Fla. — Big Frog Custom T-Shirts & More®, a locally-owned, high-technology garment decorating retail store where customers have the freedom to design their own apparel, plans to add 30 stores in Florida through strategic franchise partnerships over the next 2 years.
Currently with more than 100 awarded locations in 24 states, Big Frog is now set to develop in the already established Florida market. There are currently 12 successful Big Frog locations open throughout the state. Kickstarting this new development push is a recent franchise agreement to open a new Big Frog location in Winter Garden/Ocoee, Fla., this November.
Florida is an obvious and attractive market as the brand puts a refined focus on development in its hometown state. Big Frog is seeking qualified franchise partners to open in key markets including Jacksonville, Orlando, Tampa, Miami, Sarasota, Naples/Ft. Myers and the Panhandle.
"Florida is the Number 1 T-shirt market in the United States, and our brand already has a strong name recognition in the state," says Tina Bacon DeFrece, president of Big Frog. "We are eager to seek out and train enthusiastic local residents who want to bring Big Frog into their communities, and we will be hosting discovery meetings with prospective franchisees at our national support center in Dunedin on Friday July 27th, Monday August 6th and Monday August 27th. Please call for reservations!"
Launched in 2008, Big Frog Custom T-Shirts & More® is a franchise concept specializing in custom decorated apparel with more than 80 locations nationwide. As the $50 billion garment decorating industry continues to grow, DeFrece believes that North America will be home to 300 Big Frog stores by 2020.
