Choctaw County is located in the western part of Alabama and borders the state of Mississippi. The county is home to Butler, Cullomberg, Bladon Springs State Park and the Choctaw National Wildlife Refuge. The eastern border of Choctaw County and Marengo and Clarke Counties is set by Coffeeville Lake. With this much water throughout the eastern part of the state, it comes as no surprise that many residents will have dogs that enjoy the wildlife.
When these dogs are wandering the woods of the Bladon Springs State Park or the Choctaw National Wildlife Refuge there is a good chance they are going to get dirty. Unfortunately, some will get ticks or other types of bugs that nestle into their fur or coat. Fleas can be a major problem for dogs that tend to run around outside. With dog owners looking to keep their furry little friends happy it makes sense that owners would want their best friends to stay clean with a bath multiple times a month.
Splash and Dash for Dogs offers a very affordable monthly package that will allow Choctaw County residents the opportunity to take their dog for a bath as many times as they would like during a month. This could save them quite a bit as they won’t have to pay for multiple baths each time a pet goes out into the wild.
Choctaw County has seen a slight decrease in population, around three percent, over the last four years. This decrease has dropped the population to 13,426. Choctaw County is very unique in that over 83% of residents own a home. It is common for the more rural parts of the Gulf Coast region to have residents that own homes. That said, the average homeownership rate in the state of Alabama is 70.2%. Of those living in a home they own, 92.4% of them have lived in the same home for one year or longer.
These types of demographics are great for a franchise related to the pet industry. We would love to help you better understand why it would you should consider starting a pet store franchise today.
Washington County, Alabama is directly south of Choctaw County and borders the state of Mississippi. In fact, Haittesburg, Mississippi is not that far of a drive down 42 to get to Hattiesburg. The county seat is Chatom and the Tombigbee River borders Washington County on the east. The county has a population of 16,877 which is slightly larger than Choctaw County to the north. Similar to Choctaw County, there is plenty of open space and land for dogs and animals to roam. Over 85% of residents own their own home which likely means there are a large number of pet owners in the county.
When deciding on opening a pet store franchise we strongly suggest looking at demographic information. You can find quite a bit of valuable information at this Census.gov link. We will also be more than happy to help you along the way. We have many franchise owners that have had to make the decision of where to locate their first pet grooming franchise. Rather than having to do this on your own, we will help you at the corporate level and we will also put you in touch with other Splash and Dash for Dogs franchise owners that have gone through the process of starting their own small business from scratch.
Mobile County is, by far, the largest county in the Gulf Coast Alabama region. There are 414,079 people that reside in Mobile County and this population has increased over the last three years. The median household income in Mobile County is $42,973 which is much higher than the average income of both Washington County and Choctaw County. Splash and Dash for Dogs offers a value pet grooming service but it is known that pet owners with a higher income are the owners that are willing to spend more money on their dogs. While a median income of $43,000 is not excessive it is still enough to enjoy some of the finer luxuries in life. It should come as no surprise that one of these luxuries is to have a pet and to keep that pet clean and happy.
Mobile County is the home of Satsuma, Saraland, Chickasaw, Prichard, Tillmans Corner, Theodore, Spanish Fort, Bay Minette, Spanish Fort, Daphne, Fairhope and Mobile. All of these areas are ripe for the picking when it comes to opening a pet store franchise in 2015 or 2016. The population of these areas tends to be higher than the entire counties of Choctaw and Washington. With the Gulf of Mexico being just south of Mobile County, Alabama it stands to reason that many pet owners would take their dogs to the beach. When dogs go to the beach, they get very dirty. Getting sand and salt out of your dog’s coat or hair can be nearly impossible.
Fortunately, Splash and Dash has expert dog bathers that will be able to get a dog clean even after a trip to the beach. If you have ever had to wash your dog after a beach trip you know it can be difficult. If a loving dog owner thinks it is difficult to imagine what all the other pet owners must think. They would much rather take their dog to a groomer rather than trying to get the dog clean in their bathroom or shower. Spraying the dog off with a garden hose is not going to do the job. Some pet owners may have a river or creek in their back yard but that too won’t get a dog completely clean. It can also cause the dog to get fleas, ticks or other critters that embed themselves in the coat of a pet.
The five municipalities of Clarke County, Alabama are Coffeeville, Fulton, Grove Hill, Jackson and Thomasville.

Monroe County is just north of the Gulf of Mexico and Escambia and Baldwin County. In fact, if you drive directly south of Monroe County you will end up in Florida before making it to the Gulf of Mexico. This part of Alabama is quite rural which means many of the 23,000 residents of Monroe County likely have pets; especially dogs. With dogs being man’s, and woman’s, best friend it is not unheard of for owners to spend hundreds of dollars a month keeping the little ones clean. Rather than paying a significant amount of money to bathe a dog it is often worth it to get a monthly membership or package that will allow pet owners to bathe their dogs as much as they would like in a one month period.

Our monthly package allows pet owners to avoid having to pay high fees every single time they want their pet bathed or groomed.
