This upscale dog daycare, boarding, and spa franchise is backed by the pioneer in the dog care industry.

From the moment clients enter the reception area, the smart, eye-catching branding signals a business dedicated to delivering a superior, personalized customer experience. A complete build-out and renovation has rendered a state-of-the-art facility spanning 5,285 square feet. It offers three playrooms, a spa area, and boarding facilities in addition to storage areas, offices, break room, and other spatial amenities. The environment is climate controlled, an advanced HVAC system circulates purified air, and the rubber mat flooring in the open play environments is easy on the joints of their four-legged guest.
This “best in class” model with its emphasis on safety, sanitation and socialization has helped differentiate this business from the competition and is spurring its growth. A prime location near a major interchange is convenient to numerous dog owners. They pick-up and drop-off their furry children as part of their daily routine. With long commutes and work schedules that don’t afford them the opportunity to return home in the afternoon, they rely on this business to look after their beloved pets. When their four-legged children are picked up after a day of playing with their canine and human friends, they’re happy, tired, and excited to return the next morning.
The immediate service area includes over 62,000 residents with a median household income above the national average. This population has increased 7 percent since 2010 and continues to grow at a robust pace.
This is a low environmental impact business that can’t be outsourced or automated. New owners will enter the market with an established position and the support of a proven, recession-proof business model. Across the U.S., demand for pet services is at an all-time high due to rising pet ownership, improved disposable income, and changing consumer preferences in pet care.
This branded center can be the local flagship to launch other franchise locations in the surrounding markets, a model that has proven popular with many of this brand’s franchisees. A spokesperson for the corporate office reports that same-store sales have grown an impressive 15 percent per year. By the second full year of operation, a branded center on average takes in over $640,000 in gross revenue.
New owners should continue to enjoy organic growth and meet this target goal. Word-of-mouth referrals and a robust, multi-channel advertising campaign are getting this business name in front of its target market. The business currently operates at 60 percent capacity and can easily double the number of daycare dogs it serves with modest investments in staff.
The Sellers have complete confidence in the business and the brand and are willing to finance up to one-third of the purchase price. Details to be negotiated.
