Description of franchise system
PETLAND is the pet-retail industry leader and has been for over 38 years. They specialize in animal care, in-store community service and animal husbandry programs designed to curb the overpopulation of pets and find homes for animals.
The pet industry continues to grow despite a challenging economy. U.S. industry expenditures are now at over $45 billion, up from $17 billion in 1994. According a National Pet Owners Survey, 62% of U.S homes own one or more pets. This equals over 71 million homes! With sales and pet ownership growing quickly, consumer awareness of what pets need to thrive is spreading, creating the perfect market for a Petland franchise!
The two largest pet store chains are Petsmart and Petco , but combined together, they only achieve 17% of the market share. This demonstrates the major gap in the market place and the great opportunity for you to create your own independent business with a Petland franchise.
Owning a Petland franchise is a rewarding and exhilarating experience. Helping customers with all of their pet needs and bringing people and animals together is fulfilling like no other business. Petland has 42 years of experience in developing their stores, which sets them apart from the competition.
Pets and the people who love them feel at home in a store that understands the passion and emotion pets can generate in their lives. Petland’s Pet Counselors are specially trained to connect with and educate every customer, which leads not only to sales today but also to years of loyal customers that make it easy to grow your business!
Petland provides their franchisees unmatched in-store operations training. Management instruction is mandatory for all new franchise owners and is provided at Petland’s modern Business Improvement Center . This will be followed by in-store training at a fast-paced, high traffic training store and an additional 2-week of training program in your own store for both you and your staff.
Petland knows that getting a new business off the ground can be tough. This is why Petland does more than simply give you a "Development Manual" to build and develop your store. The Petland program gives you the time and means to be a triumphant Petland franchise owner. Petland will put their more than 42 years of comprehensive services and industry experience to work for you with a turnkey development program!
