Why open a Pet Franchise

A Pet franchise can be a great opportunity for those who are passionate about animals.  It is an extremely fast growing and Stable Industry.  It’s recession resistant as pet owners see their furry friends as a major part of their family, and such, the products, and services they buy for them are necessity items.  Interestingly enough, studies show that more and more Millenials are choosing to have pets instead of children.

Different segments of the pet industry include pet washing and grooming, pet daycare and boarding, pet supplies, healthy pet food, dog walking, pet sitting, dog training, and even pet waste removal (don’t laugh it’s a serious business).  The best part is that there are franchise opportunities with proven systems in all of these segments.

The Pet industry as a whole has had explosive growth and is projected to continue grow steadily over the next several years.  Down below are some interesting statistics on the Pet Industry

  • 70% of US Households own at least 1 pet

  • 69 million U.S. households own at least one dog

  • Avg. household spends $1,132 per year on their pets
