We’ve got a lot to WAG about this month- our pet franchise was recently featured on FOX 21’s Living Local, a local lifestyle segment spotlighting some of the hottest trends, fashions, and businesses in the Colorado Springs area.
One of the most exciting things about our pet franchise that really sets Wag N’ Wash apart from other pet-themed retailers is our delightful gourmet doggie bakery, which features cookies, biscuits, and even special-occasion cakes just for dogs (and the occasional cat!). Our treats are prepared fresh in-house from human-grade ingredients, creating an inviting aroma of freshly-baked goodies from the moment you and your companion animal walk in the door. Wag N’ Wash Field Training Manager Rachel Cloutier was on hand to show viewers an array of gourmet goodies and discuss the importance of sharing special occasions with our favorite companion animals. You can watch the entire segment here.
In addition to the mouthwatering peanut butter cookies that she listed among the Colorado Springs location’s top-selling bakery items, Rachel showed off some adorable peanut butter tarts that, if not for the bone-shaped decoration on top, could easily be mistaken for a tasty treat for humans to enjoy!
Of course, the gourmet bakery at the Wag N’ Wash pet franchise isn’t just for the big occasions- our deli case is stocked with freshly-prepared goodies that customers can pick up as a quick “I love you” present for their favorite pup any day of the week! After all, love is the best occasion of all!
With 70% of American households owning dogs, cats, or both, and 94% of those people reporting that they consider their companion animals a part of their family, it’s easy to see why Wag N’ Wash customers love being able to celebrate their pets’ special days, from birthdays to “gotcha days,” and just about every holiday in between. (“I’ve done Mother’s Day cakes for my dogs before!” Rachel shares.)
While there are other, independently-owned gourmet dog bakeries out there, Wag N’ Wash has the unique advantage of operating a bakery as just one of many other services we offer our customers. We are able to provide both our two-legged and four-legged guests with a total experience each time they visit and pride ourselves on being the only place in town where you can WASH ‘EM, FEED ‘EM, SPOIL ‘EM, LOVE ‘EM all in one visit! Customers love the ability to order beautiful, custom-made cakes to fit any color scheme or occasion from our gourmet bakery- and they especially love the convenience of being able to pick up a special treat to commemorate an important day in their pet’s life while also shopping for the everyday essentials- food, supplies, toys, and more- and getting their favorite four-legged friend bathed, all in one trip!
Rachel’s appearance on Living Local is just the latest of many segments that the FOX affiliate has done with the Colorado Springs Wag N’ Wash location. Franchise Owners can count on our corporate marketing team to help them secure segments like these in order to promote their store, raise awareness for a particular pet-themed cause or issue, advertise for a special event or promotion, or just show viewers at home some pro tips for pet care. By partnering with our pet franchise, you can concentrate on building your brand through TV and print media placements with the help of our PR firm. This is the kind of publicity and exposure that attracts customers to your business- and, quite frankly, the sort of thing that is difficult for smaller, independently-owned pet care businesses to secure on a regular basis.
