We love our pets. Not only do they bring great joy to our lives, provide loyal companionship and even save lives, the health benefits of pet ownership have seen increasing recognition. And those seeking to own a business in a growing, profitable and enjoyable industry may look to man's best friend for inspiration.
Did you know Americans will spend an estimated $350 million on halloween costumes for their pets this year? It's not a trick question! According to the American Pet Products Association, an estimated $60.59 billion will be spent on pet related products in the U.S. in 2015, a number that has nearly doubled in the last 15 years.
With growing popularity comes competition and franchising has furiously taken a bite out of this industry with everything from pet supply stores to doggy day care and training. I'm especially excited about a particular furry friend franchise opportunity with fantastic unit economics and management model for multiple unit, semi-passive ownership that is gaining strong momentum in metro Atlanta. Want to hear more about this pet supply franchise we are excited about for our clients? E-mail me at email@example.com and I will send you a short presentation.
But it’s never ALL about the money. One of the reasons I love what I do in helping people realize their dreams of business ownership through franchising is that I get to help people looking for more meaning in their lives. Whether the business they are searching for is related to their particular brand of pet or it allows them to spend more time playing fetch, the satisfaction factor is the same. For me, the freedom and flexibility of business ownership means that I own my schedule and I can dedicate my time to causes close to my heart.
At FranNet of Atlanta, we support our local shelters including the Atlanta Humane Society and encourage our employees to do the same. Our Manager of Client Services, Kelly Trim and her daughter Morgan volunteer regularly for the Homeless Pets Foundation, an all volunteer organization whose mission it is to find forever families for pets in our community.
