Not all our Franchise Owners are as hands on —
Especially if they decide to open multiple units. But we like all of our pet store Franchise Owners to be owner-operators at least in the beginning, and many of them choose to be highly engaged in managing their stores.
Our purpose is to provide dogs, cats and their humans with an unforgettable experience in a place that cares deeply about their individual needs.
If you’re wanting to take your destiny in your hands and build a successful business by shaking the paws of your customers, then we encourage you to consider a Wag N’ Wash pet franchise.
