Big Frog’s Million-Dollar Success Story

In 2022, our Big Frog franchise family achieved a remarkable financial milestone as seven of our franchise owners soared past the million-dollar revenue mark! Among these high achievers was a store located in the charming city of Bentonville, Arkansas.

John and Mara Dougherty, previously corporate employees at Walmart Inc., took the plunge into entrepreneurship when they purchased their Big Frog franchise in April 2019. Just three years later, in 2022, they achieved their first million-dollar sales year!

In 2021 alone, the store contributed more than $35,000 to various charitable causes, reflecting Big Frog’s mission to give back. The Bentonville Big Frog store earned the prestigious “President’s Frog” award at the 2022 Big Frog Conference in recognition of the franchise’s outstanding commitment to community support.
