DUNWOODY, Ga. — Big Frog Custom T-Shirts & More, a garment decorating store opened a new location at 1402 B Dunwoody Village Parkway on Jan. 8.

Big Frog of Dunwoody is owned and operated by local resident Tracey Carothers. After 20 years in the tech industry as an executive, Carothers decided it to make a drastic career change through joining Big Frog. 

“I am beyond excited for this new venture to bring Big Frog to our community,” Carothers said. “Big Frog’s team has been immensely supportive and invested, yet appropriately hands-off, a great balance for someone like me making a career change.” 

Carothers plans to use her location to promote sustainability by using green technology. The new business venture also brings Carothers, a cancer survivor who is navigating life with a chronic illness, the ability be a more active member of the Dunwoody community at her own pace.
