Its popularity increased and, due to its location on Route 66, tourists stopped, shopped for and bought pottery.
Although as a collectible, Frankoma Pottery is always in demand, the plant struggled in recent years to increase sales of its new products and was unable to remain profitable.
In August, 2008, Joe Ragosta bought Frankoma from Det and Crystal Merryman who had purchased it in 2005.
Ragosta plans to rejuvenate the sometimes struggling factory by streamlining the manufacturing process and cutting down on waste.
Basically, he wants to build on the past with updated designs and colors.
His purchase includes the factory, showroom, seven acres of property and the Frankoma brand.
The new dinnerware will feature a hand-dripped paint design that will resemble raindrops and will be called Rain.
