Rachel Nagunst and her team at Anytime Tees can do just about anything – from screen printing and embroidery to digital printing, iron-on printing and yes, even rhinestones.

“I know how important and unifying shirts can be to a kid, a team, a school,” Nagunst says. “We try to make the process as easy for organizers as possible, at the same time recognizing the power that t-shirts and other items can have. It’s an honor to be a part of so many powerful experiences.”

Nagunst launched Anytime Tees in 2010 in her basement. Charting steady growth every year since – with an emphasis on supporting schools and the local community – the business is now housed in a 4000 sq. ft. retail and production facility in Council Bluffs.

“It gives us a thrill to see our shirts around town and that ownership helps us to provide great service,” Nagunst says.

 

Winning Insights from Our December Winner:

  • Providing an Excellent Customer Experience

“We try, with each interaction, to provide the best service possible. Our industry is a competitive one with many choices available locally and online. All of our staff is from this area and that allows us to really connect with our customers and be as excited about their projects as they are.”

  • Empowering Employees and Creating a Culture in which They Can Grow and Succeed

“We are a tight group here at Anytime Tees. Most of our employees have been here two years or more, and we really value that commitment and time. As we grow as a company, so do our employees. We try to recognize and appreciate our individual employee talents and passions, embrace them and share them.”

  • Best Practice Tip

“One of the best tips I can share with business owners is to support your community – if that is your town, your industry, even just the other businesses in your area. Find a community to work with, support and learn about. If we all can start there and support each other, that support will make us all better. We have grown steadily because we have invested in our community through schools, teams, churches and fundraisers. We support our community and they support us.”

  • Value of Chamber Involvement

Being a member of the Greater Omaha Chamber has been a great experience. From the initial meet and greet, every interaction has been exceptional and has left me walking away feeling energized and motivated. It has been nice to get to know more people and organizations in Omaha.”

  • Impacting the Community

“We donate 1000’s of dollars to various organizations, teams, and families in the Council Bluffs/Omaha area annually. … For us here at Anytime Tees, shirts are a way to celebrate, remember, come together and hope.”
