Big Frog Custom T-Shirts & More® Looks to Make Impressions in Louisiana
Garment Franchise Ranked #1 by Entrepreneur Seeks to Add 12 LA Locations by 2021
NEW ORLEANS - Aug. 8, 2018 // PRNewswire // - 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, today announces development plans to add 12 stores through strategic franchise partnerships over the next three years.
As the fast-growing and award-winning concept has swiftly expanded to more than 100 awarded locations in 25 states, Big Frog is now set to develop in Louisiana's widely open market and is actively seeking qualified franchise partners. The state of Louisiana is already to home to one Big Frog location in Hammond that opened less than a year ago and is already seeing record-breaking success.
The Hammond store ranks among Big Frog's top three strongest performing locations in the first six-months of opening, in the company's history. Owners and operators, Joey and Christi Marceaux joined the Hammond community after being displaced by Hurricane Katrina in 2005. The husband-wife duo was welcomed with open arms and are committed to giving back to the community that now means so much to them. Their Big Frog store has supported numerous charity organizations, local schools and sports teams – all aimed at making a greater impact.
"As a one-of-a-kind service provider, our location has received an incredible response from the Hammond community," Joey Marceaux stated. "Residents struggled to find custom T-Shirts and outerwear before we opened. It's been a thrill to be an active participant in so many events the city has to offer, and we're excited to continue developing in such a viable market."
Louisiana is an attractive market as the brand puts a refined focus on development in the southeastern United States. With a positive business climate, open real estate and proof of successful franchisees, Big Frog is seeking qualified franchise partners to open in key markets including Greater New Orleans, Kenner, Mandeville, Metairie, Baton Rouge, Denham Springs, Lafayette, Shreveport, Lake Charles, Monroe, and Bossier City.
"Louisiana is a wide-open market and the Hammond location is one of the strongest new stores in our system. There's huge opportunity for new Big Frog owners to make a big splash in the area," said Tina Bacon DeFrece, president of Big Frog. "With open territories across the state, we are eagerly seeking enthusiastic local residents to bring this fun and growing brand to their community. Louisiana's terrific lifestyle, weather, and individually expressive culture are a great fit for our stores."
Big Frog combines creativity with cutting-edge technology and brings a personalized service to local markets. The unique design technology makes it a fast, individualized and convenient service that leaps beyond competition. The brand's Direct to Garment (DTG) printing bonds the dye to the fabric's molecules, allowing products to be washed in both hot and cold water and with color-safe bleaching without risking fading, cracking or peeling of the image. In less than ten years, the company has hit milestones not reached by many in the franchise space as it closed out 2017 by awarding its 100th unit and also was recognized by Entrepreneur as the #1 franchise in the garment retail industry.
The retailer remains one of the top franchise opportunities on the market. As the $50 billion garment decorating industry continues to grow, DeFrece believes that North America will soon be home to more than 300 Big Frog stores.
