When it comes to caring for man’s best friend, there’s no shortage of brands competing for consumers’ attention. From pet stores to boarding facilities, business is booming in the pet care industry. And with spending expected to continue climbing above the $60 billion mark, that trend isn’t disappearing any time soon. But consumers have made it clear that when it comes to their pet’s wellbeing, they’re not willing to sacrifice top quality care. That’s why more and more dog owners are turning to the nation’s leading luxury pet hotel for help: K9 Resorts Daycare & Luxury Hotel.
With cage-free suites, state-of-the-art air purification systems, five-star hotel-quality customer service and pet-safe, outdoor courtyards, it’s no surprise that demand for K9 Resorts’ services is at an all-time high. That’s why the brand is expanding at a rapid rate—with 10 locations currently thriving on the East Coast, the brand is positioned for exponential growth in the months and years ahead. And prospective franchisees are catching on.
“There’s no doubt that it’s an exciting time to be a part of the K9 Resorts brand. We’re positioned at the forefront of a rapidly growing industry, and we’re fully equipped to tap into that potential,” said Jason Parker, co-founder and co-CEO of K9 Resorts. “We’re confident that 2017 will be a year for the record books, and we’re looking forward to welcoming more local owners into our system.”
Heightened demand in the pet care industry is just one of the many benefits that comes with opening a K9 Resorts franchise. The brand also offers its franchisees unparalleled support—from comprehensive and ongoing training to a corporate team that’s easily accessible, the brand’s model is designed to set its local owners up for success. K9 Resorts also boasts a simple business model that’s already been proven to be successful in a variety of different communities. That means that franchisees gain access to best practices and tips that will help streamline operations.
“Everything about K9 Resorts’ operations is impressive. Every single location maintains the highest standards of safety and cleanliness,” said New Jersey-based K9 Resorts franchisee Natalie Mooney. “There’s a palpable energy as soon as you walk into a K9 Resorts. I knew right away that I wanted to be a part of the brand’s business.”
K9 Resorts also offers its local owners an affordable business ownership opportunity. While initial investments range between $915,655 to $1,292,859, the brand works with preferred lenders that are willing to lend up to 75 percent of the total cost to qualified candidates.
Franchisees aren’t the only ones recognizing K9 Resorts’ unique positioning within the pet care industry. The brand is consistently ranked among the nation’s top pet hotels, and the franchising industry is taking note. Franchise Times even named K9 Resorts one of the Dealmakers of Year for 2017 for attracting a minority investment from Navigator Partners. The multi-million dollar deal, which was announced in the first quarter of 2016, is enabling K9 Resorts to grow quickly across the country.
Going forward in 2017, the brand is planning to build on the momentum behind that award. And with more locations expected to open their doors in the upcoming months, K9 Resorts is poised to make its development goals a reality.
“We couldn’t be more honored or excited to be named one of Franchise Times’ Dealmakers of the Year. We’re constantly working to improve our franchising opportunity, and it’s incredibly rewarding to see those efforts recognized,” said Parker. “As we continue to open up new locations, we’re planning to solidify our position as the luxury pet care and hotel brand to beat.”
