Wag N’ Wash’s Homemade Treats Featured on TV!

Wag N’ Wash’s Homemade Treats Featured on TV!

We’ve always known our homemade baked treats have been a fan-favorite. Now, they’ve hit the spotlight! Our pet store franchise was recently showcased on KARE, the news station based out of Minneapolis. Jon Wagner, owner of a Wag N’ Wash franchise in Lakeville, Minnesota, joined Tia Messner and host Laura Betker to talk about Wag N’ Wash and walk the viewers through the delicious treats we create in our bakeries!

Before jumping into the baked goods, Jon helped illustrate the numerous services we offer as a pet store franchise. “At Wag N’ Wash, we do quite a few things,” Jon explained. “We try to be a one stop pet retail store for dogs and cats. We have our in-store pet bakery. On top of the bakery, we do full service grooming, and we have a self wash where you can come in and wash your own companion. We have everything you need, and you just leave the mess to us.” As Jon expressed, the multiple services we offer through our franchise benefits pets, pets owners, and Franchise Owners. We pride ourselves in offering our Franchise Owners four distinct revenue streams to target the vast depth of the pet industry. 

We also like to emphasize our commitment to providing the best natural pet foods at the highest quality. Jon expresses how at Wag N’ Wash, “we sell all natural foods. No corn, no wheat, no soy, no artificial preservatives or byproducts. They’re all very good choices, both grain and grain free.” The demand for healthier and higher quality pet foods is booming, and we want to ensure that we provide only the best products to our customers. In the end, we just want to make sure that pet owners leave our store knowing that they made the right choice for the pets. When asked what happens when customers come in with no idea what is the best food for their dog, Jon expressed that there will always be someone who can help out. “We’ll walk you through it, ask you a bunch of question about what you have, determine what options you have, then decide from there.” 

After offering a summary about everything Wag N’ Wash has to offer, Tia took over to present the wide assortment of baked goods our pet store franchise carries. As we all know, pet owners love spoiling their furry friends, so our baked goods are a perfect way to allow them “people food” without the guilt. To start, Tia explains that “everything is made in house and from scratch. We bake really hard and to the heart.” Again, we want to provide only the highest quality products for pet owners and their pets, and that calls for offering a bakery that holds the freshest and most delicious treats. “We have some fun ones,” Tia expresses, referencing the colorful assortment of treats that were brought out. She starts out with the treats that hold the most popularity among our pet store franchise—the cakes. Not only are these cakes made fresh in store, but they have another fun surprise! “The fun thing is we can actually customize the cakes if you give us a day or two notice,” Tia explains. “We can personalize it and make it fun! It doesn’t just have to be birthdays; you can do adoption days, gender reveals, all that fun stuff. We’ve seen it all!” She also highlights another one of Wag N’ Wash’s most popular treats— the cookies! “Because it’s the fall season, we brought some of our favorites, like the pumpkin paw,” Tia states. 

Lastly, Jon addressed how all of the homemade baked goods are actually safe for everyone to eat! “It’s all human grade, so we can eat it too. There’s just no salt or sugar in it,” Jon explains. Of course, this called for a group taste-test! Before ending the segment, a couple of the KARE reporters came out to get a taste of what our treats truly taste like. Even without the salt and the sugar, they gave the final verdict: It’s doggone good!

The Top 3 Reasons You Should Invest In A Pet Shop Franchise

The Top 3 Reasons You Should Invest In A Pet Shop Franchise

With franchise business opportunities available in every industry imaginable, what makes a pet shop franchise “The One”? The answer is easy— there is no other type of franchise that offers the perfect combination between great financial potential, a strong and growing industry, and finding true fulfillment in your work. At Wag N’ Wash, we are able to offer our franchise owners each of these three features in the fullest manner as a growing pet store franchise. Pet owners are putting more and more effort into the well-being of their animals, thus making it clear to see the great and growing potential in starting a pet store business. Here, we list the top three reasons for why choosing to open your own pet shop franchise could be the perfect opportunity for you.

1.FINANCIAL POTENTIAL

It is no surprise that pet shop franchises, and Wag N’ Wash in particular, benefits from high average unit volumes as well as strong profit margins. For Wag N’ Wash specifically, our average unit volume of over $1,500,000 simply speaks for itself. The margins also demonstrate great strength and stability, in regards to retail sales. Entrepreneur highlighted the numbers backing the margins of retail businesses, citing average margins topping 60 percent as well as popular items like chewing toys reaching 70 percent. They also illustrate the impact of high-end accessories for dogs, such as designer collars and luxury clothes, that aid in maintaining the high average margin. 

2. STRONG AND GROWING PET INDUSTRY

Without a doubt, the pet industry stays stronger than ever. In a past article, we addressed the specific numbers behind the industry and how they boost the success of our pet shop franchise. With individuals spending billions of dollars annually on pet food, toys, and supplies, there are no signs of decline in the market. Especially within the last few decades, the growing number of pets (over 350 million) combined with the increasing effort placed on pet care calls for an increased demand for pet stores and grooming establishments as a whole. Not only does Wag N’ Wash reap the benefits of working in a booming industry, but our focus on healthy and natural products places us in the faster growing segment of the industry itself given the rising popularity of healthy living products for our pets. When considering our ability to tap into various segments of the industry through our food products, bakery, grooming services, and self-service wash, our wide reach on the entire pet industry helps promote the utmost success for all of our franchise owners. 

3. CAREER FULFILLMENT

Even with financial success, it is difficult to find true satisfaction in your work if you feel unfulfilled and unable to make a significant impact in your community. It’s true— it can’t get better than working with dogs and cats every day! If you are passionate about animals and enriching their quality of life, you are bound to feel proud of the work you do to better the lives of pets and their guardians. Not only will you feel content in yourself, but the ability to give back to the community through our pet shop franchise allows for even further career fulfillment. From holding pet adoption fairs to donating money to local nonprofits, franchise owners can be sure to know that our pet shop franchise is committed to giving back to the community. So if you are looking for a way to better your career by leaving a positive impact with your communities, becoming a franchise owner with Wag N’ Wash can help guide you towards achieving the fulfillment you desire in a professional career. 

With these three reasons in mind, it becomes easy to see why so many others explore pet business opportunities and joined Wag N’ Wash as a franchise owner.
