Big Frog Custom T-Shirts & More, a full-service apparel decorating franchise, announced its 15th business anniversary.
For a decade and a half, Big Frog has delivered custom-designed apparel to communities across the U.S., with recent expansion into Canada.
Big Frog Co-Founders Tina Bacon-DeFrece and Ron DeFrece, along with a full complement of Big Frog Franchise Group team members, accepted recognition at the Dunedin City Commission Work Session on Tuesday, Nov. 14. Mayor Bujalski and City Commissioners Gow, Freaney, Walker, and Tonrga congratulated Big Frog on the milestone and presented a certificate of appreciation in recognition of Big Frog being a cornerstone of the community for 15 years.
Festivities continued Nov. 15 with a team lunch and a special cake. The “Frog Squad,” led by Big Frog himself, took the celebration to the street, visiting nearby businesses and giving away free, limited-edition anniversary design T-shirts and cookies branded with the “15 Frogtastic Years” logo.
Big Frog posed for photos with business owners and passersby, making for a fun and festive day. They then hosted an open house and invited visitors to the headquarters office to celebrate. Among the visitors was Maureen Freaney, one of the city commissioners.
“We are incredibly proud to reach this milestone and grateful to our Dunedin friends and neighbors who shared in our celebration,” says Big Frog Co-Founder, President, and CEO Tina Bacon-DeFrece. “Our success is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our team, the support of our customers, and the strength of our franchise model. We look forward to continuing to serve our communities with the same passion and creativity for years to come.”
Over the years, Big Frog expanded its footprint, with more than 75 store locations across the U.S. and Canada, and anticipates growing by an additional 250 locations in the U.S. and an additional 25 locations in Canada in the next five years.
