Values & History

Big Frog's award-winning approach to T-shirt design was created in 2006. With a home office located in Dunedin, FL, the company moved to a franchise system in 2008 and has been expanding rapidly ever since, now with 84 locations in operation around the country. Fun and creativity are highly celebrated at Big Frog by customers and employees alike, and the company's commitment to the happiness and prosperity of franchise owners means a low total investment compared to other retail concepts, daylight hours, a small number of employees, and the use of green technology and business practices.

Industry Performance

The custom screen-printing industry brought in over $9 billion in total revenue for the year 2019 in the US alone, though growth over the previous five years experienced a 0.6% decline, annually. Despite this decline, the industry has significantly outperformed most other printing segments, and Big Frog's nationwide success and minimal competition place it in a prime position to gain an even larger portion of those sales in the years to come.

Training & Support

Training and ongoing support are provided for all franchise owners, beginning with a full week of classes at Big Frog University in Dunedin, Florida. E-learning seminars and courses are available thereafter, with on-site training, comprehensive manuals, and a full suite of webinars, videos, and more. Each franchisee will gain access to business coaching, site visits and on-site training, peer groups, a company-wide intranet, and new product development through our R&D team. Industry tradeshows will keep you on the cutting edge of new standards and innovations, while the Big Frog marketing team will provide ongoing support through micro-websites, email blasts, car wraps, PR and media materials, and SEO services to help your business stay competitive. Best of all, Big Frog allows each franchisee unprecedented access to the founders themselves, who will always be only a phone call away.

Ideal Candidate & Qualifications

Friendly and outgoing franchise owners who are willing to become involved in their local communities are ideal. Owners will commonly need to meet people in local schools, small businesses, non-profits, and other organizations. Relationship building skills are highly valued, and although staffing is typically only 2-3 people, leadership skills contribute significantly to the success of each owner.

Purchasing a Big Frog Franchise

Big Frog franchise owners will need access to at least $40k in liquid capital to get started, as the total initial investment potential for this opportunity ranges between $187,500 and $237,500. Third-party financing options are currently available for qualified candidates.
