When you think about wanting to own your own business and be your own boss, you have two options: to either start your own business or buy a franchise. Starting your own business can be expensive and there is no guarantee that it will be successful. The neat thing about most franchises is that they’re already successful. Statistics show that franchises have a much better chance of success than independent start-up businesses. There is one franchise in particular that is always profitable, the pet industry! Pet owners love their pets and spoil them to death, making the pet industry the hidden gem of the franchise world.
Did you Know..
The pet industry reached a turning point for the better in 2020, with total sales of $103.6 billion, a historic high, according to the American Pet Products Association. That marks an increase of 6.7% over 2019 retail sales of $97.1 billion.Even during a pandemic, the pet industry is thriving. How many other industries can say they’re thriving during a pandemic?! Many businesses are struggling or have closed their doors for good as the pandemic continues, but not pet store franchises.
A pet store franchise is one of the safest and most profitable investments, and here’s why: 2 out of 3 households have pets, the adoption centers are empty and there is now such a thing as a “ pet influencer” on social media. It’s safe to say pets are always a commodity. Pet owners are keeping the pet industry super busy and super profitable. From grooming appointments to buying toys and treats, pet groomerie and boutique franchises are constantly busy.
Why a Franchise?
Owning a franchise allows you to be your own boss. There is a low failure rate when you invest in a franchise, because you are buying an established concept that has already been successful. Starting your own business isn’t as glamorous as it may seem.There’s no playbook to guide you, no one to tell you if what you’re doing is right or wrong. It can also be very expensive to start your own business, Many entrepreneurs may not get a salary for years. That is a lot of missed wages. If the business doesn’t work out, it could all be for nothing. Statistics show that franchises have a better chance of success than independent start-up businesses. So, why try to start a brand new business when you can find a model that’s already working successfully?
Do you LOVE Pets?
Do you have to be a dog/pet lover to own a pet franchise? The simple answer is, yes. The most successful pet store franchisees are in love with dogs. This isn’t a skill that can be taught, however it is one needed to be truly successful in the pet franchise industry. No matter how much franchise training you complete, you need to be passionate about animals. If you are a pet owner and are looking for a career that you absolutely love then a pet franchise is the type of business you should definitely own. If you do what you love, you‘ll never work a day in your life.
