The Perfect Franchise for Veterans

Franchising is the ideal business concept for veterans because of its proven-and-tested system. Veterans bring with them strong discipline, solid leadership, keen problem-solving skill sets, and a deep understanding of the importance of following proven systems.

As a turnkey business with easy-to-follow business model, Big Frog makes the ideal business investment for veterans.


    Unlike other franchise businesses that require a lot to get you started, owning a Big Frog business requires an average investment total of $200,000, including working capital.


    Big Frog’s wide range of services appeals to a broad group of target markets. Our revenue stream is unlimited, attracting both B-to-C and B-to-B markets.


    Everyone wears a t-shirt — although we’re way more than t-shirts! Our solid digital-focused systems and resources ensure that our franchisees can get ahead in a highly competitive digital world.


    We know payroll is one of the largest expenses in any business. At Big Frog, we make operating a business easy with minimal overhead, including 2 to 3 team members and low inventory.


    Big Frog is more than a business, it’s a lifestyle! With limited weekend hours & 9 AM – 6 PM weekday retail hours, spending quality time with family and friends while operating a Big Frog franchise store is one of our many perks!

How much does it cost to own a franchise?

The total investment required to begin operation of a standard Big Frog franchise is $195,934 to $291,434. A full breakdown of the cost is provided in Item 7 in our Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD). The bulk of that cost can usually be financed, but lenders will generally require a cash injection of 20-30%. Big Frog candidates will need to meet lenders’ qualifications for financing. The initial franchise fee to purchase a Big Frog franchise is $60,000. We require you to have about $40,000 in working capital on hand when you open your store. The store build-out, furniture, equipment, fixtures, inventory, and signage, plus the cost of attending training is approximately $100,000.

Does Big Frog offer in-house financing?

No, we don’t offer first-party financing, but we can refer you to several preferred lenders we work with who are very comfortable with the Big Frog model. Additionally, Big Frog is listed in the SBA Franchise Directory and is eligible for financial assistance.
