How Wag N Wash Stands Out from Other Pet Care Franchises

How Wag N Wash Stands Out from Other Pet Care Franchises

How Does Wag N’ Wash Differ From Other Pet Shop Franchises?

Pet Shop Franchises

Different Kind of Pet Franchise

Wag N’ Wash is a different kind of franchise. We have surrounded ourselves with devoted individuals who not only enjoy making a great living, but also are determined to improve the lives of their companion pets and those around them. Wag N’ Wash isn’t only proven to be successful for pet shop franchise owners, but for their communities as well.

Hear From The Experts

Franchise Brand Loyalty

Through a relentless approach to outstanding customer service Wag N’ Wash has become one of the most trusted names in pet retail among the communities in which we operate. According to market research from Rosetta, brands that enjoy brand loyalty such as Wag N’ Wash typically see their customers purchase 90% more often, spend 60% more per transaction, and are 5 times more likely to indicate they will only purchase from that brand in the future.

After decades of building relationships with industry suppliers and manufacturers, these relationships now provide Franchise Owners with Grade-A pricing to which independent owners do not have access, and allow us to pass these savings along to our customers.

Team members that staff our locations are professionally and diligently trained in all products that we sell so that every customer can be provided expert answers to their questions. Along with decades of experience in the industry, our expertise gives us a competitive advantage.

We’ve got Multiple revenue streams

We’re not an average dog grooming franchise. Unlike most independent pet stores that just sell food, Wag N’ Wash combines retail goods with self-service wash stations, full service grooming, and an in-house bakery to fulfill all of our customers needs under one roof.

We have unique products and services that are proprietary to our brand, and we only offer the highest quality pet foods and products. Our pet shop franchise has yet to see competition that replicates our boutique feel with quality products for a reasonable price.

Those We Love

The Wag N’ Wash pet shop franchise was founded on the premise of spending more time with those we love, not only people, but the animals that have become family. We know that without support from our community, our pet store franchise would never be what it is today. An integral piece of our business model is giving back to the community, and is a core value we look for in our Franchise Owners.

Wag N’ Wash Celebrates 20 Years!

Wag N’ Wash Celebrates 20 Years!

It’s incredible what dogs are capable of inspiring! For example, Jef Strauss and Dan Remus created Wag N’ Wash together because of the love that they had for their Dalmatian, Geni. Both Jef and Dan felt guilty that they were working jobs that continually kept them away from the aging Geni for over 12 hours a day. So, like many entrepreneurs, they decided to take matters into their own hands and in 1999, Jef and Dan officially opened their first Wag N’ Wash location in Colorado Springs, Colorado! They haven’t looked back since!

“We opened our first location back in 1999 because Jef and I wanted to spend more time with our aging Dalmatian Geni. We never expected to have nearly 20 stores open throughout the country and almost one million people wash their dogs at one of our stores,” said Dan Remus, co-founder of Wag N’ Wash. “What we are most proud of is the ability for each of our Wag Shops to engrain itself within the communities they are a part of. We get to know our guests and their companions personally, and we love their companions as much as they do.”

Celebrating 20 Years of Success (140 in Dog Years)

 

 

 

 

 

It’s crazy to think, though, that Wag N’ Wash was almost finished before it could even get started! From a financial standpoint, Jef and Dan couldn’t get the bank to provide them with the loan that they needed. Due to this, they decided to take out a second mortgage on their home, crossed their fingers, and worked really hard. What the bank didn’t understand (or realize), was just how quickly the Pet Industry was growing. In 1999, the Pet Industry was valued at $17 billion. Today? That figure is closer to $70 BILLION (and still growing)! A big reason for this growing figure is actually something that Wag N’ Wash Franchise Owners are able to take advantage of:

“We see Wag N’ Wash as a generational business. Already the children of some of our firsts guests and now becoming customers! Looking ahead at where we want Wag N’ Wash to be another 20 years from now, we will continue striving to improve the lives of companion animals from coast to coast,” added Jef Strauss, co-founder of Wag N’ Wash. “Listening to our guests and team members at each of our locations is going to be key in evolving the pet retail and services we offer. No one knows what pet companions need better than their guardians and our dedicated pet-loving staff.”

Our Customers and Community are Tops!

Our Customers and Community are Tops!

The Wag N’ Wash Natural Pet Food & Grooming promise to customers is “we love your companion pet as much as you do.” Our mission is to help guardians express their feelings by providing products and services they can trust to “wash ‘em, feed ‘em, spoil ‘em and love ‘em” in every single store visit. These actions allow us to strengthen the bond between guardian and companion.

Wag N’ Wash stores operate with a solution focused approach. Team members receive extensive training to help find the best option for companions who experience dietary issues, stress, hot spots, joint pain and many other concerns.

We stand behind the advice and the products. Customers may return a product at any time for a full refund. This eliminates worry about whether the companion will thrive with a new food or experience greater mobility after trying a supplement. Returned products that do not have to go back to distributors are donated to rescues to help others in our communities.

Customer Reviews

We know we have hit the mark when customers post positive reviews.

A Fort Worth, TX customer posted this review on Yelp:

“Great place with great people for our dogs!  We have a Great Dane and a German Shepherd so we need a bigger facility to bathe our dogs.  This is big with great equipment and quality shampoos and conditioner.  We buy all our dog food here and the staff/owners are friendly and helpful – they call our dogs by name when we come in.  I seldom do reviews, but these people and this place are 5 star plus!!”

Here’s a review a Wag N’ Wash Eagan customer posted recently on Facebook:

“I have had so many great experiences here! My boyfriend and I bring our foster dogs here for grooming. Michael has worked with a couple of them and has done an amazing job! We recently went in for a self-service wash and the staff there was so friendly and patient with us. We had a new foster with us who was scared of everyone, so the bath took us to a little past close and the gals cleaning the area didn’t mind at all. They were so understanding of our situation and didn’t try to rush us out! I have also had a couple birthday cakes made here and the dogs have loved them!”

A California, MD customer shared this review on Google:

“Love this shop … Staff are so friendly and helpful! If one person doesn’t know the answer to your question, they will find out for you. Feel very welcome every time I come here. Have used self-wash, taken classes, purchased home baked treats and ear medications. I couldn’t be happier with such a personable and professional pet store. Thank you very much!!”

Community Involvement

Our communities are important to us. Wag N’ Wash engages with pet-related charities to provide donations, host adoption events, facilitate training and offer socialization. We thank our customers with a new, improved loyalty program that rewards food purchases, self-wash purchases and total dollars spent in the store.

Through volume shopping rewards, coupons, free food programs and other in-house promotions, Wag N’ Wash® Natural Food & Bakery stores gave back over $787,594 directly to our customers in 2018. That’s a lot of pocket change!

In 2018, Wag N’ Wash® Natural Food & Bakery stores donated over $30,000 worth of gourmet biscuits, all-natural pet food, free washes, free merchandise and monetary donations back to their communities.

To join this strong pet community please call 720-316-6623.

 

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

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.
