Pet Grooming Franchise: Why It’s a Smart Investment

Americans love their pets and welcome them into their home each day. We embrace them as family members, give them love, feed them and make sure they are cleaned and well-groomed.

The constant need for pet grooming services is a strong argument in favor of purchasing a pet grooming franchise. Aussie Pet Mobile features more than 70 franchisees with over 360 Pet Mobiles in operation, and has been growing since its inception in 1996, leading to Aussie Pet Mobile being named the number one brand in mobile pet grooming on Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500® list.

Is Franchising Right for You?

It’s important for entrepreneurs exploring the possibility of owning a pet grooming franchise to ask themselves key questions prior to making the commitment of being your own boss. Is it a profitable venture? How hard is it to get started? Is it a smarter investment to buy a franchise or go it alone? Let’s explore.

One result of the COVID-19 pandemic was that home-bound individuals and families sought to give a loving pet their forever home in record numbers. Pets bring great joy to adults and children alike and we all needed a little joy during that time, and we still do.

Recent statistics show that owning a pet grooming franchise is a stable and sound long-term investment.  The dog grooming business market was recently estimated at about $8 billion in the U.S. There are approximately 130,000 grooming businesses employing more than 230,000 people. The growing number of pet ownership has resulted in a substantial growth of about 8% annually and that same growth is projected to continue through 2026. There’s a constant need for pet grooming as pets will need bathing as well as nail care and more several times a year.

What Are the Advantages of Franchising?

We’ve established that the market is ripe. What are the advantages of exploring pet grooming franchise opportunities as opposed to going it on your own? Starting from scratch is always more difficult than having a template for success and a built-in support system and sounding board. 

Franchises such as Aussie Pet Mobile provide comprehensive training to their franchise owners as well as groomers to ensure their businesses are up and running and operating efficiently. They also partner with marketing specialists who implement methods, tools and training to help build your clientele and keep them coming back for more. Providing a scalable business model allows franchisees to expand regionally at their own pace. Non-franchise owners won’t have this built-in template and support system and have to find their own path to success.
