A quick story from KELOLAND news...
A new kind of custom apparel shop opens in Tea, SD

  

LISA VANBEEK  |  Partner, T-shirt Ninja

An entrepreneur in the apparel industry for 15+ years, Lisa's career has covered all aspects of the clothing business. From designing & manufacturing custom apparel for professional motorsports teams, to building multiple retail apparel brands from scratch, to owning & operating clothing & gift boutiques, Lisa's industry expertise is invaluable.

Upon return to her hometown of Sioux Falls, SD, Lisa's company Wilder Wholesale expanded to include retail consulting & product development for local businesses. It was quickly evident that her clients in the area had needs not being met, and one of those clients in particular was rather vocal about it... 

MARK FONDER  |  Partner, Mischief Manager

An entrepreneur in the restaurant industry for 15+ years, Mark's career has been spent perfecting the art of food, drink and fun in the Sioux Falls, SD area. From his first restaurant in a strip mall many years ago, to today's gorgeous neighborhood hot spots, The Barrel House & Kravn, Mark's career has elevated the local dining scene for more than a decade. He is also one of the area's philanthropic leaders, focusing on local children in need.

With a few hundred employees of his own, Mark was buying a lot of apparel- and was very frustrated with the lack of service he'd been receiving. Upon crossing paths with Lisa in 2018, the old childhood friends reconnected over stories old & new, and a shared appreciation of business. Inevitably, their entrepreneurial wheels started turning & it wasn't long before the two decided to join forces. 

And then... WILDER CUSTOMS was born.

And now, just look... here you are on our website,
thinking about calling us for your new t-shirts.  Or hats. Or hoodies.
Or maybe to talk to Lisa about building a merchandise collection. 
Maybe now you're just thinking about getting a beer at Mark's bar. 
We think you should do all of the above.
But... stay focused:  first call us about your new gear.
We'll hook you up.

Then let's get a beer.
