Splash and Dash Groomerie and Boutique is now accepting applications for new franchises in Alabama. Ranked as one of the top privately-owned American businesses by Inc. Magazine, the “Small Business Ideas and Resource for Entrepreneurs,” Splash and Dash is the only pet industry business to make the list of 5000 companies.
The pet industry is predicted to bring approximately $73 billion in revenue for the 2014-2015 fiscal year; about $4.7 billion of which will be spent exclusively on grooming and boarding, according to Pet Age Magazine and the American Pet Products Association, respectively. With this in mind, opening a pet store franchise is certainly a lucrative business decision.
Splash and Dash is an innovative business model that focuses on bringing affordable grooming options to pet owners nationwide. Offering a monthly package starting at just $39.95, Splash and Dash promises pet owners an unlimited grooming bundle to ensure that their precious pooch remain clean and healthy all month long, without worrying owners about the high cost associated with regular grooming.
Offering different store concepts, Splash and Dash accommodates for both rural and urban markets. Splash and Dash is also an alternative to more expensive franchise opportunities. Check out our franchise comparison chart to see how Splash and Dash stands against other franchises, pet and otherwise. With initial investment packages as low as $55, 000, Splash and Dash is approximately $100, 000 cheaper than other pet industry franchises.
Blount County Demographics
Homeownership in Blount County is significantly higher than in the rest of Alabama, coming in at 80%, though the county remains 90% rural. This combination lends to the fact that Blount County homeowners are very likely to have pets, especially in areas where yards are likely to be very big.
Blount County is popular for an abundance of outdoor activities, thanks to the Rickwood Caverns State Park, the Black Warrior River, and the nearby Bankhead National Forest, all of which attract hikers, fishermen, canoers, kayakers, and campers to the area.
This combination of outdoor activities along with the high likelihood of pet owners within the county mean good business for pet stores and grooming salons.
Bringing Splash and Dash to Blount County, Alabama
With only two pet grooming salons serving Blount County, bringing more competition to the area with a Splash and Dash franchise would allow Blount County residents the convenience of staying close to home when looking to drop their pooch off at the salon.
