Today we’d like to introduce you to Jennifer Grimes.
Hi Jennifer, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstory.
I started Summer Fox Company four years ago after I had my first son. I actually started off making bow ties and bows but really found my passion when I started to make graphic tees. I like to call a Summer Fox Company tee the perfect mom outfit. You can throw a graphic tee on top of leggings, jeans or even a skirt.
We have really hit our stride within this last year. When Covid hit, I was able to focus more time on my business and expand it. SFC is currently in several boutiques and on all social media platforms. Each tee is made to order and a perfect example of what a small business is, I have an office at home and work between naps, at bedtime and I run on lots of (iced) coffee.
We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
Has any small business had a smooth road? Lol. Everyday is a new learning experience. I follow a lot of small businesses and small business groups to help learn as many tips and tricks as possible. Some days can get very overwhelming, you need to wear a lot of hats to stay relevant.
Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I make custom graphic tees. My mini motto is, it’s not your average tee. You can select different options to kick your tee up a notch as well. I offer paint splatter, distress and my most popular addition would be the fox kiss. A fox kissed tee is acid washed, I’m proud that has become a staple in my group.
How do you think about luck?
Shirtmaking, especially since Covid, has become a dime a dozen. I feel lucky for every single, like, follow and purchase because there was something about me/my business that stood out.
- From $15-$40 depending on design and additions.
