What does Big Frog’s Competition look like?

While Big Frog Franchisees face competition, we have several unique factors that provide healthy separation for the customers to choose us over any other provider. T-shirt makers are a highly-fragmented business. 90% of the DTG machines in the industry aren’t used regularly and are only a supplemental feature lying dormant most of the time in backrooms. Big Frog’s DTG printers are powerhouses, printing at a very high capacity day-in and day-out. Large screen printers cannot service customers looking for small orders and no set up fees. They also do not have the welcoming environment we provide to customers as they are typically more industrial in nature. When comparing Big Frog to local Mom and Pop shops or people working out of their garage, Big Frog far exceeds their capabilities with customer service, pricing and value. Online competitors do exist, but through the strong community ties you will build – our customers bring us their business for the Big Frog Experience. They have the trust that their products will be of a high quality because they personally chose them in the store and the confidence that we will print them exactly as designed at the local level.
