Big Frog Custom T-Shirts & More Leaps into the Upper West Side
Growing Garment Decorating Shop Plants its 100th Franchise Location in Heart of New York City
December 18, 2019 // Franchising.com // New York - 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, announced the opening of a new location at 2244 Broadway on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. The December 18th opening will mark the first retail store in New York City and the 100th location nation-wide in the franchise’s ten-year history.
The newest Big Frog is owned and operated by Upper West Side resident Kerry Colley, who spent more than twenty years in the banking industry before deciding to embark on a new professional journey. Diving into entrepreneurship head-first, Colley and his husband Joshua Drumm hope that Big Frog will provide their neighbors with the opportunity to use garment design as an avenue for creativity and expression, as well as support other businesses in building and promoting their brands.
“We are beyond excited to be the first Big Frog in New York City and the 100th location for the franchise. Josh and I are joining an incredibly supportive Big Frog family, and together we will deliver high-quality apparel and other unique products designed to empower individuals, groups, and businesses to express themselves and inspire the world,” said Colley. “We hope to bring fun and added value to our customers as they work with our in-house designers to get just the look they want.”
As the 100th location, Big Frog of the Upper West Side is just as much a milestone for Big Frog nationally as it is for Colley and Drumm.
“Since our founding in 2009, everyone on the Big Frog Team, from our corporate staff to our franchisees have had a major part in getting us to this 100th store milestone” said Tina Bacon-DeFrece, President and CEO of Big Frog Custom T-Shirts and More®. “We’re so excited to have Kerry and Josh lead the way as we expand beyond 100 locations. The two make a great team and together will lead the creative force that will launch Big Frog into New York City while providing us a footprint for further growth.”
Since opening its first franchise location in 2009, Big Frog has grown exponentially. Now With 100 locations open and three locations in different stages of development, Big Frog is expanding throughout North America. Moving forward, the brand has targeted growth for the states of Florida, Arizona, Texas and Georgia ahead of 2020.
Big Frog of the Upper West Side will be open Monday - Saturday, 10 a.m. - 7 p.m. and Sunday, 12 p.m. - 5 p.m. For more information call (929) 474-9292 or visit https://www.bigfrog.com/theupperwestside.
