ColorPAQ backpacks a mom-and-pop idea
Founded in 2011, ColorPAQ was the idea of husband-and-wife team, Terry and Tracy Frederick. The couple has five children who, when told about the initial idea — a backpack that changes color — and now they and their friends carry the backpacks to school. The Fredericks say this is the only color-changing backpack, and they have other items being designed that will have the same unique feature.
