A Fluid For Every Effect

  • Froggy's Fog Uses Resources to Help Combat COVID-19

    Bottling Line at Froggy's Fog

    On a normal day, Froggy's Fog would manufacture over 500 gallons of theatrical effects fluids in its Columbia, TN warehouse. Now they have shifted their focus to help those in need in time of Crisis.  With the rise of COVID-19, a shortage of proper hand sanitizers and chemicals became a reality. It was then that Co-Owners Adam Pogue and Chris Markgraf knew they had the resources to help combat the spread. 

     

    "We realized that we had all the main ingredients for hand sanitizer in house and the ability to mass produce and distribute it to the masses." Markgraf states, "Why not use our resources to help out? We have thousands of dollars of orders we are putting on hold to try and get necessary resources into the hands of those who need them." 

     

    The small family run company normally known for providing fluids for amusement parks, cruise ships, production houses, film and television quickly jumped into action, switching from theatrical effects fluids to hand sanitizer and sanitizer bases.   

     

    "In the span on 3 days, we created, registered the trademark, and came up with the formula for Froggy's Simply Sanitizer", says Markgraf "It was a company-wide effort and we were glad to have the ability to make a positive impact in this uncertain time.  It also gives us the opportunity to keep our doors open and our employees taken care of." 

     

    Since the announcement of COVID-19, Froggy's has been working around the clock to fulfil orders of chemicals that are common ingredients in hand sanitizers like USP Propylene Glycol, USP Vegetable Glycerin, and TEG (Triethylene Glycol).  With the slowing of Amazon fulfillment, a main distributor of Froggy's, the small staff has been tasked with fulfilling orders that went from a few hundred a day to a few thousand. 

     

    "It's been really hard on everyone," Co-owner Adam Pogue says, "but in the long run we know we can help make a difference, even if it is a small one in our community.  We are also ensuring that the inventory will be spread out by limiting the numbers sold to prevent price gouging and profiteering" 

     

    With an alcohol content of over 80%, Froggy's has made a sanitizer with no fluff and exceeds the required 60% alcohol standard set forth by the World Health Organization.  The Base is a premixed formula that adheres to the WHO's recommendations, requiring the user to simply add the proper alcohol content. Casey Jones, Bluegrass Distillers, Old Glory, and MB Roland are just a few of the distilleries using Froggy's Simply Sanitizer Base mixed with their alcohol in their bottling facilities to further help with distribution. 

     

    "The focus is to get it in the hands of people that need it in our immediate communities." States Markgraf, “We have relationships and work very closely with first responders, so we wanted to make sure they have enough to protect themselves.  But everyone is welcome to order what they need."  

     

    Froggy's Simply Sanitizer follows the World Health Organizations guidelines for Hand Rubs and is also CDC compliant.  It comes in a range of 1 Gallon to 250 Gallon Tote.   

     

     

    Pogue, who grew up a stone's throw from Froggy's current location in Columbia, TN, continued, "We wanted to help out in the community as much as possible so we will have sanitizer and base available for local pick up at our warehouse as well.  We are very much a family run organization and that family extends far beyond our walls to every family in America." 

     

    You can pick up some of Froggy's Simply Sanitizer by calling 615-469-4906 or online at FroggysFog.com.

  • CUSTOMER SPOTLIGHT: THIRTEENTH FLOOR ENTERTAINMENT GROUP

    Thirteenth Floor Entertainment Group is the world’s largest Halloween themed entertainment company. With over 15 locations and counting. They bring a premier haunted house experience to markets all across the country.

    We Caught up with Warren Conard, Director of Operations for 13th Floor Entertainment Group and asked him about why they have chosen to use Froggy's Fog for- get this- 13 years now.

    How long have you been using Froggy's Fog Products?

    13 years... since 2006, We use Froggy's at 13th Floor Haunted House locations as well as House of Torment, Nashville Nightmare, New Orleans Nightmare, Terror on the Fox, Fear Farm and the Los Angeles Haunted Hayride, to name a few.

    I believe we were one of the first Froggy's customers back in 2006 when we met them at a trade show. They gave me a gallon of their fluid to try out and have always listened to our needs as our company has grown and welcomed feedback on all of their products. They continually strive to support industry functions and work hard to grow their business.

    "Froggy's Fog has been a great partner to work with for several years. Confidence in their products and services has helped us focus on the continued growth of our business."

    What Sold you on Froggy's Fog Products?

    For us, we like the fact that Froggy's has put so much into research and testing and stand behind their products. It's nice to not have to worry about product liability when it comes to putting theatrical fog into the atmosphere at our attractions.

    We've chosen Froggy's for several reasons including quick shipping, reasonable shipping rates, continual product development, and the fact they stand behind their products.

    What Product do you use most?

    Mostly we use Backwood Bay for general long-lasting fog and Quick Blast for bursts of fog we don't want to hang around much. We have also utilized Froggy's rental services by renting snow machines for other seasonal events.

    The long-lasting fog is dense and exactly what we need at the right price.

    What has exceeded your expectations since working with Froggy's Fog?

    The responsiveness the Froggy's staff, mostly. Their sales, service and shipping has been very quick and they always take care of any issues that have come up.

    What would you tell someone who's considering our business?

    Froggy's is easy to do business with and always available to answer questions. They are continually learning and developing new products for the Entertainment Industry and have always gone out of their way for us.

     

    Be Sure to Follow Thirteenth floor and Visit a House Closest to you!  Tell them "Froggy's Fog Sent you!"  That won't get you anything, but It's our way of thanking them!
