Speaker

Jackie Pierce Ft. Worth, TX Franchisee - Big Frog Custom T-Shirts

Jackie began her career as an accountant straight out of Purdue University in 1991. She worked as an internal cost accountant for several years in the Chicago area, and earned her CPA in 1993. After transferring to Fort Worth, she spent time with a large franchise company working as a financial analyst, which afforded her the opportunity to gain insight into a franchise system. As her husband continued to get relocated with the railroad, she stayed at home with the kids until they were off to college. She figured out that she loves running a store through her volunteer efforts when she managed a local non-profit's resale shop. And she also figured out (also through her volunteer efforts) that there had to be a better way to order custom t-shirts. Enter BIG FROG. The match seemed perfect, and the rest is history.
