Big Frog Custom T-Shirts & More Hosts Marketing Challenge for Local High School and offers $1,500 in prizes

Leaping into the Naperville community, Big Frog Custom T-Shirt & More, announces a partnership with Neuqua Valley High School’s DECA and marketing students to promote creativity in the community and instill an entrepreneurial spirit in the local students.

“We couldn’t think of a better way to join the local business community than by celebrating it with Naperville’s future business leaders,” said Scott Parrill, co-owner of Naperville’s Big Frog shop.

The Big Frog Challenge

Big Frog has challenged Neuqua Valley’s marketing students to work in teams and create an innovative and effective marketing plan that cultivates consistent sales growth for the company, year-round. The teams will have the opportunity to present their plans on Friday, March 14 in front of their peers and business and marketing professionals. The winning team will be awarded $1000 in addition to a $500 donation to Neuqua Valley’s marketing department from Big Frog.

Continuing its impressive growth milestone launch into the Chicago-land market, the Naperville location marks the 50th store opening for the Florida-based custom decorated apparel shop since 2008 and marks first of a fast moving growth plan in Illinois.

Combining creativity with cutting-edge technology, Big Frog brings a personalized service to Naperville’s pond. Big Frog’s unique technology makes its fast, individualized and convenient service leap above the competition. Their Direct to Garment (DTG) printing bonds the dye to the fabric’s molecules allowing products to be washed in both hot water and with color-safe bleaching with risking the image to fade, crack or peel.
“We are encouraged company-wide by the initiative with Neuqua Valley High School students and are excited to have an hand in inspiring an entrepreneurial spirit in today’s youth,” said Leeward Bean, CEO of Big Frog Custom T-Shirts & More, who will be speaking to the students about entrepreneurship. “Like the rainforest featured in our stores, we believe customer service is a rare a precious commodity, and know the Parrill’s are more than suited to carry out our service to Naperville.”
As a part of a week of grand opening events, Big Frog of Naperville joins the chamber of commerce with a ribbon cutting with the mayor on March 13 and invites the community the grand opening event on Saturday, March 15, 2014 for a day of prizes, giveaways, treats and to celebrate the work of the Neuqua Valley students.
Located at 2863 W. 95th Street in Naperville next door to Jewel-Osco, the store is open Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Saturday, 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
