Fit Matters!

Fit Matters!

At Wag N’ Wash Natural Pet Food & Grooming the selection of franchisees is all about fit. That means our business emphasis shifts from growth and opening stores to making sure our owner / operators understand our philosophy and have similar goals.

We look for people who can function as cultural co-founders and understand that the brand promise of “we love your companion pet as much as you do” guides our day-to-day activities. We seek business partners and take extra steps to make sure there is a good fit before candidates get too far in the process.

“This is important not only for a potential franchisee, but for the franchisor.  Just last week during a phone call with a prospect it was clear that the timing of opening a Wag N’ Wash (the prospect dream) didn’t align with their family just yet.  I think a lot of franchisors would have looked the other way, but we do things a little different at the Wag,” said Rob Flanagan, President & Pack Leader.

With a focus on partners that get the “Wag” and our mission to enhance the lives of companion animals as well as run a profitable business, we want to grow a generational business. Our growth strategy is based on the foundation that some of our goals may not happen in our lifetime.  We want our grandchildren to experience the vision as much as we do.

“We are very fortunate in our approach to finances.  Our operational expenses are 100% covered by our royalty revenue.  We don’t have to sell an agreement to make sure we make payroll.  This allows us to make sure we are strategic in our approach,” explained Flanagan.

Part of our strategy is to reimagine our footprint to open up the potential that comes with lower build out costs. We are excited about our new footprint model. “In the past the minimum square footage was around 3,500.  Starting in 2019 we are exploring smaller footprints with a lower build out expense.  This opens more real estate opportunities,” said Flanagan.

By focusing on the right fits, Wag N’ Wash has grown from nine locations in 2016 to 19 in 2019. The pet industry itself continues to achieve unparalleled growth. In 2018 the American Pet Products Association estimates spending on pet products at $72.13 billion. Spending is forecast to reach $96 billion in 2020 according to Packaged Facts, a leading market research firm.

Wag N’ Wash locations with their four revenue streams are right in the thick of that growth. https://franchise.wagnwash.com/. Want to find out if you are the right fit? Call 720-316-6623 today.s

 

 

 

Here is How the Pet Food Franchise Industry is Evolving, and Why Partnering with Wag N’ Wash Makes Sense

How the Pet Food Franchise Industry is Evolving

One thing that’s certain is that pet food isn’t what it used to be. All it takes is a walk down the pet aisle of a supermarket to notice the difference. The days of brown sludge and pellets are long gone and have instead been replaced with an array healthy and appetizing cuisine options. Indeed, the pet food industry itself has reported on a number of growing trends that are revolutionizing the way pets eat, but more importantly, the way pet parents want their pets to eat. Here are a few of them:

Pet Business Opportunities

Mimicking human trends

There’s been an undeniable uptick in the public’s desire to eat healthier. This desire has in turn been met with more and more options that accommodate gluten free, Non-GMO, raw foods diets etc. More and more of these trends can now be found in pet foods as well.

Only the best for Fido

It’s becoming exceedingly common to see pet meal options that read like entrees off the menu of your favorite restaurant. From ravioli to casseroles to birthday cakes, pets are enjoying versions of human food engineered to their tastes. Their foods also now include exotic meats and seasonal options.

DIY pet food

It’s often said that if you want something done well you’ve got to do it yourself. Nowhere has this philosophy been applied better than in the food industry. Pet owners across the country are rolling up their sleeves and making their own pet food. The DIY option is especially appealing because it involves minimal processing and opens the opportunity for personalization.

Targeted foods/ Preventative foods

With pets being increasingly susceptible to the same illnesses that we are, many pet foods are now creating food options chock full of specific ingredients for targeted dietary and health needs.

Clean labels and transparency

Now more than ever, pet parents are taking greater care to read the labels on pet food. The expectation from health-conscious pet parents is that they should be able to recognize all if not most of the major ingredients in the form of protein, grain and the like.

Local sourcing

Another food trend that has trickled into the pet food industry is the idea of locally sourced food. The appeal behind locally sourced food or “farm to table” is knowing where your food comes from. For many pet owners, this desire extends to their pet’s food as well and knowing that the ingredients not only support a local supplier, but are guaranteed fresh as well.

Starting a Dog Grooming Business

How these trends manifest at Wag N’ Wash

As a pet food franchise, Wag N’ Wash is not only  aware of all these trends, but incorporates them into its practices as well. What this means for franchisees is that you would be buying into a franchise that sets you up for success by staying ahead of the curve. Wag N’ Wash is leading the charge on what an up-to-date pet food franchise should represent. Our focus on a variety of fresh, natural and wholesome ingredients with nutritional supplements is in line with what pet parents want for their pets.
