On February 9, pet care franchise Wag N’ Wash hosted the adoption event “Paws for Love” at the store location in Monument, Colorado. Dogs from all over Colorado (and their owners) came to the event to raise money to help rescue dogs find loving homes. Wag N’ Wash put on fun activities for dogs and kids, one of the most notable being the “doggie kissing booth” where you could pay to smooch the Fox 21 News Weather Dog Chester.
“These events show the public what happens when caring folks get together to support these creatures,” General Manager Alex Culbertson said.
Wag N’ Wash also supplied doggie treats, grooming services, toys, and Valentines Day cookies! This event is just one example of how being a Wag N’ Wash Franchise Owner allows you to give back to your communities and help out the animal population as well. Last year alone, Wag N’ Wash stores donated over $30,000 in toys, donations, food, and free grooming. These values are important to our company, and help to foster positive relationships between our Franchise Owners and their communities.
“Wag N’ Wash, a full-line specialty retail destination for cats and dogs, has a mission to recognize, promote and foster the positive impact that companion pets and their humans have on each other,” said Public Relations Associate Katie Gibbons.

It’s no secret that becoming a Franchise Owner for an up-and-coming franchise company can present a few problems.
One factor that many people don’t consider is the financing aspect of the business. Both Franchisors and Franchise Owners need to carefully consider their options when looking for banks to support them when investing in a business.
Many brands can barely keep their heads above water when there is a lack of capital, which leads to them to being forced to sign under-qualified candidates to help with funding the organization’s growth. This can be problematic as it can hurt the success of the franchise organization, and even cause locations to close.
Here is How We Stand Apart:
Wag N’ Wash has been a successful pet store franchise since our inception in 1999. With twenty years of experience under our belt and 19 locations open, we have the knowledge to effectively strategize and invest our time and money wisely.
We do this by investing in our vision of this business and putting most of the profits back into the company. A lot of this reinvestment has gone into improving HR and support for Franchise Owners. This is what the Wag N Wash president had to say about the philosophy:
“There are no huge salaries at the top end,” says Flanagan, who joined Wag N’ Wash as president in 2017. “We actually try to drive it so there’s not a lot of profit at the end of the year because we’re reinvesting it in the company.” – Rob Flanagan

Julie and John Carros, owners of the Wag N’ Wash location in Monument, Colorado, were chosen to take part in the International Franchise Association’s Franchise Opportunities Blog #FranchiseeFriday Q&A! This was a wonderful opportunity for Julie and John, and their Wag N’ Wash location, as they were able to take advantage of the publicity provide insight as to how they participate in community outreach efforts, how they promote diversity in the workplace, and more.
When asked why Julie loved franchising, Julie replied, “John and I are new business owners, but we aren’t new to business. We know that we aren’t experts in starting up businesses and appreciate the value we get from working with people who have ‘already figured it out’.”
