Branded Apparel named a cool place to work

Branded Apparel of Marion employees are shown working in the company's warehouse area early Friday morning on August 25. The custom screen printing business has been named one of the 24 Coolest Places to Work by The Corridor Business Journal 2017, and will be recognized at a September 14 awards banquet at The Hotel at Kirkwood Center in Cedar Rapids.
Sales Director Tom Taylor said Sales Manager Brian Behning nominated the company for the award. Behning said he answered about 20 questions in an online survey about why Branded Apparel is a cool place to work, and was later notified of the award electronically. Behning said he enjoys working in the company's relaxed and caring atmosphere.
Family-owned Branded Apparel is located at 4995 Chandler Court and has 16 employees. According to Taylor, owner Dan Krapfl started his screenprinting business in 1997 in Marion, and they typically work with grocery stores, schools, and tourism in locations around the country.
