About Townie® Originals
Townie® Originals clothing line began when Frank P. Joseph Jr., a long time resident of Rochester, MA felt a strong need to express his feelings for this very special town and the serine, family oriented lifestyle it offered.
“TOWNIE” seemed an appropriate term to describe the sense of belonging and how connected he felt to this very special place. Frank and his children proudly wore their Townie tees everywhere. It wasn’t long before it caught on at schools and social functions. Other towns from this tri-town community were soon requesting shirts named for their town. In 1990 Frank lost his job as a Junior Manufacturing Engineer due to a plant closing. He decided to apply for a trademark which was approved for registration, had tee shirts for all three towns printed up and started selling them from the back of his pickup truck at community events.
Today, 25 years later,Townie Originals, LLC is pleased to accommodate the growing popularity of the Townie® Originals clothing line and accessories throughout the country and around the world.
So, whenever you feel connected to a very special place for its unique, appealing lifestyle, express your affection with Townie® Originals and “Live The Lifestyle”.
Townie® Originals have been given with affection for family and friends since 1990.
When worn it becomes an expression of that person’s affection for a particular town.
The Towniebug is contagious! I’m so glad you’ve caught it.
