All About the Pet Care Franchise World

All About the Pet Care Franchise World

Today, pets live as a part of the family in more than half of all American homes — nearly 80 million! And though we’re friends to all things four-legged and furry, one pet continues to be number one in our homes (and hearts) — dogs! No matter what’s going on in the world, pets will always need to be fed, cleaned, and cared for. Those are just a few of the reasons why the pet care industry is so lucrative.

Pet Care Franchises — A Doggone Good Investment

There’s no denying that Camp Bow Wow is a business that attracts dog-lovers, but it’s so much more than that. In 2017, Camp Bow Wow generated over $100 million in revenue and were positioned near the top of an industry that’s growing more than 7 percent, annually. If that statistic alone wasn’t enough to make your ears stand up, consider the fact that 7 percent is three times as fast as the national economy.

Through the Good and the Bad, Camp Bow Wow Survives

When franchise owner Ann Roth and her husband opened their first Camp in 2003, they enjoyed years of growth and profit. But when the Great Recession hit in 2007, they were among many business owners worried they would not survive. Fortunately, survive is exactly what they did. According to Ann, “A lot of businesses didn’t make it. We made it through all of that. That says something.” Today, Ann and her husband are the proud owners of not one, but two Camps!
