Nearly everyone owns one of those special t-shirts … from a sporting event, your first concert, a community charity run. We hold onto those reminders and wear them proudly. But what happens for the t-shirt printer when all the events stop? We chatted with David Riddell who owns two Big Frog Custom T-Shirt franchises about how his stores adjusted and plan to keep moving forward post-pandemic.

On the latest episode of the “Winning on Main Street” podcast, Riddell explains how his business benefited from grants and loans to offset businesses expenses, and how his team is staying safe now that they can meet with customers again.
