PAW PALS FRANCHISE OPPORTUNITIES
A Paw Pals Franchise provides the opportunity to have an enjoyable and rewarding career working with animals, and to grow your own business with the support & expertise of an established brand.
The launch cost of a Paw Pals franchise is £10,995.
This is payable in three installments, and there are no management fees to pay in your first six months!
But don’t just take our word for what a good idea starting a pet sitting franchise is; check out these industry stats:
The value of the UK pet products and services market is going to grow by 25% in the next three years. It is forecast to reach £2.1 billion in value by 2023, up from £1.7bn this year. (Mintel Pet Food & Pet Care Retailing UK 2018 survey).
The real opportunity for Pet Sitters like us is that the majority of the growth will come from pet care services, which are estimated to grow by 34.3% to £991 million by 2023.
“The pet food and pet care industry is growing well (says Chana Baram, retail analyst at Mintel)
underpinned by stable pet ownership and an increasing desire to treat pets with premium food, products and services as they become a more integral part of the family. Additionally, with pet ownership peaking among full-time workers, there is an opportunity to provide practical services such as dog walking and daycare.”
Pet services, including pet sitting, grooming and training, is the fastest growing category in the industry and Pet Sitting in particular is becoming increasingly popular. The concept is still a relatively new one, making now an ideal time to enter the market place with an established and successful brand like Paw Pals.
And there’s more good news!.
The UK pet population continues to grow – 45% of households have at least one pet, increasing to 53% of those with children. Dogs are the most common pet, with over 6.6 million households (that’s one in four homes) estimated to own around 9 million dogs.
Cats are the second most common pet in the UK, with around 8 million in almost 5 million homes, representing 18% of homes in the country. (Mintel, Pet Insurance – UK, August 2018).
Based on an average of historical figures from existing franchisees, you can be earning over £30,000 in your second year.
By hiring people to help you (as almost all Paw Pals Franchisees do) you can take on more customers, target more areas of your territory and grow your business.
Also by offering new and additional services, for example selling and delivering pet food, pet photography, Wedding Dogs chaperone service etc, or even buying additional territory, you can really increase your profits.
