*According to the American Pet Products Association
“I just want to tell you one more time that this experience with your group is amazing. I went through training with another franchise establishment and was really just a number to them. Your folks really jump in and try to alleviate all my fears of apprehension. Machelle called me like ten minutes after I emailed her today and went through quite a bit of stuff with me. They know the job and they know what is expected of them. I remember the other company just wanting their money. NO personal spin. I think you should also maybe do some kind of testimonial for your founder’s days and/or training classes. I think your prospective franchisees need to know that they will be helped from start to finish. It really has been thought out and best practices implemented. I told the girls I was at their mercy and did not want a ton of money spent on lodging, etc. and it’s like it was their money and budget.”
I purchased an Aussie Pet Mobile Franchise in December 2006 and we groomed our first pet in February 2007. I started with one grooming van and absolutely no customers and have experienced year over year growth every year. I have grown from my first year with $83,000 in sales to last year (2012) with $389,000 is gross sales and we are on track for $420,000 to $450,000 in sales this year. I currently have five grooming vans with four full time groomers working for me, one of them since July 2007.
All of this could not have been achieved without the support and guidance of the Aussie Pet Mobile corporate staff. They are always quick to offer help when asked and provide everything in a timely manner. The databases and reports available allow me to streamline my work and concentrate on growing the business, making sure the groomers have what they need to be successful and attend to customers. Aussie Pet Mobile has strategic vendor relationships which saves me time and money on grooming products and managements tools.
More importantly, the corporate office cultivates a team environment with franchisees nationwide which is why I purchased a franchise, “to be in business for myself but not by myself”. Franchises share with each other not only on the intranet site, but during regular webinar meetings with the corporate staff. I did extensive research on five different franchise opportunities prior to becoming part of the Aussie family and am today still happy I made the decision I did.
We became franchisees in 2002. We had been in retail for 30 years but wanted to have our own business and be our own boss. So after looking at many franchise opportunities, we selected an Aussie Pet Mobile franchise in the San Diego area. At that time we purchased 1 territory and had one employee. With a solid networking and support system from the franchisor and the management team, we became successful very early on. Based on the strong demand for our service, we acquired additional territories and now have 8 pet mobile units and 13 employees. We are generating a large revenue stream with a very large repeat business. For 2012, 82% of our business was from customers who had used our service in the past. We continue to grow our sales using the proven marketing system and still have huge upside potential.
