CAREER GROWTH: PET BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES
Make your Dream Career a Reality
If you work in a field you are not passionate about, life can become mundane. Working in the corporate world is tiring, clocking in and clocking out for menial pay and unlimited vacation time. The founders of Wag N’ Wash understand this sentiment well, as it is what led them both to quit their corporate jobs and create a career that allowed them to spend more time with their favorite furry friend, Geni. What started as a simple self-serve dog wash and doggy bakery did so well that the two founders decided to franchise their business – Wag N’ Wash is now one of the leading pet business opportunities out there. What started as a dream of a fun, lucrative career quickly became a reality. You can make this dream career your reality too, as Wag N’ Wash is looking for new franchisees!
65% of US households — 85 million people — own pets and the number of pets has grown to 312 million nationwide. Nearly 80% of those people view their pets as beloved members of the family.
Total US pet industry expenditures reached over $66 billion in 2016. By 2020, the US pet industry is expected to reach $96 billion in sales, according to Packaged Facts, a leading market research firm.
We spend big on our pets, recession or not. An astounding 92% of pet owners spent the same or more on their pets during the most recent recession period.
Food for pets accounts for slightly more than a third of the entire market, with $23 billion spent in pet food annually. Toys and accessories for dogs was up 30% in 2010, from $56 million to $73 million.
According to BusinessWeek, “Pet services is one of the fastest-growing sectors in the pet industry, jumping 8 to 12% per year.” Americans are spending more money on their pets than ever before.
Dog owners spend an average of around $1,641 and cat owners approximately $1,125 per year, two-thirds of which goes to retailers and service businesses.
Pet Business Opportunities and Career Growth
Wag N’ Wash is one of the many pet business opportunities in the $96 billion annual pet business industry. With 20+ years in the industry, Wag N’ Wash has built a sustainable business model that is pet approved! Unlike single-revenue pet business opportunities, Wag N’ Wash has 4 streams of revenue: retail, bakery, self-service wash, and full service grooming. This differentiation has allowed franchise owners to bring in huge financial gains – pet food sales alone represent $23 billion of the industry. Wag N’ Wash’s wide range of services and products allows customers to do all of their shopping in one place, which makes us stand out from competitors.
All of our current franchise owners have experienced a quick ROI and explosive sales – our AUV is over $1.5 million. This level of revenue is consistent as well, as the pet industry has proven to be recession-resilient – many pet owners see their cats and dogs as “fur babies” and won’t sacrifice their needs, even in times of economic stress. You can take part in this lucrative pet business opportunity with a low initial investment of $477,950 – $836,250. Not only is Wag N’ Wash a low risk, high reward opportunity, it is also a chance to experience career growth in pet franchise opportunities.
“We set our financial goals high, committed ourselves 110% and we achieved our goals in less time than we planned. Our growth was organic and everyday gets easier and easier. We now have two locations and can’t wait to continue to grow our Wag N’ Wash business.”
