Lolly Wolly Doodle is a family-run children’s clothing company with a social media has more than just a cute name going for it!

Billionaire investor Steve Case, the co-founder of US internet group AOL, has been so dazzled by Lolly Wolly Dooly and its “Facebook commerce” business model that he has invested $20 million in the company with his Revolution Growth fund

Case predicts that Lolly Wolly Doodle has the potential to become a billion-dollar business.

The lady behind the North Carolina business is Brandi Temple, who began by making clothes for her own children back in 2008. She only happened to start selling them when she realized she had bought too much fabric one day, but the clothes became popular very quickly.

She started selling items on eBay, then in 2010 posted some garments on Facebook. Ms Temple says the response on Facebook was “overwhelming”, to the point that in just two weeks she had moved all her stock from eBay to Facebook.

The business is a family affair, with her husband, mother, brother and nieces among the employees. As the business has grown the company was able to offer jobs the other people from the community in Lexington.
