Did you know 65% of U.S. households own a pet? That’s more than 85 million homes, containing more than 300 million pets. This presents an excellent opportunity for small business owners who are interested in owning a pet franchise such as Wag N’ Wash.
What’s more, total U.S. pet industry expenditures reached more than $66 billion in 2016. By 2020, the U.S. pet industry is expected to surpass $96 million in sales. A necessity regardless of economic climate, a very high 92% of pet owners spent the same amount or more on their pets during recession periods.
This is huge – and it has been recently validated with the Wag N’ Wash team’s most recent trip to the Superzoo conference. A wonderful time to network, learn and discover the latest trends in pet products that aim to enhance the lives of companion animals and their humans, Superzoo showcased important buying trends such as the shift toward more natural/organic products and new fashion/accessory items for pets of all sizes.
Attending Superzoo was a great reminder of why we do what we do – we always come back to our jobs reinvigorated, inspired and ready to hit the ground running with fresh, new ideas to make companion animals, and their humans, happier and healthier.
