Start Up | Episode | Ann Arbor T-Shirt Company / Ann Arbor, MI
Jerry Kozak and Ricky Winowiecki began printing and selling t-shirts out of their college dorm with little success. After graduation, they borrowed $16,000 from friends and family to buy their first commercial t-shirt printer. After a couple more years of dismal sales, business started to pick up. The company got its first significant contracts and moved into a warehouse.
