So you’re interested in a Bubbly Paws franchise. That’s amazing! Thanks for taking this important step in your research. We don’t require experience in franchising, or a background in dog grooming to join the Bubbly Paws family, but what you do need is a passion for delivering exceptional quality with an equally exceptional client experience. We are excited to chat more about this great opportunity!
Bubbly Paws Dog Wash & Grooming Franchise
Bubbly Paws was created by Keith and Patrycia Miller when they needed a place to bathe their dog and the only options were the bathtub in their house or old, outdated grooming salons. Our first store opened just outside Minneapolis 10 years ago with the vision of creating an upscale dog grooming and self-service dog wash environment. 10 years and 4 stores later, we are excited to announce our Bubbly Paws Franchise!
We are not an old-school franchise system. We listened to what franchisees are looking for in terms of support and processes and have tried to implement that in our model. We are here for you and we want to learn more about you and how we can work together to create mutual success.
Bubbly Paws Core Services
- SELF SERVICE BATH – We’ve revolutionized the self-service bath customer experience. We provide everything customers need to make their pup look, smell and feel great! We recently have been testing out our “Scrub Club” which has unlimited baths for a low monthly cost.
- FULL-SERVICE BATH – The full service bath is designed for dogs that don’t need a full groom, but customers want the Bubbly Paws team to do all the work. This is also a very popular option with grooming clients in between grooms.
- GROOMING – The Bubbly Paws groomers go the extra mile to make all the dogs look and feel great. We design the stores to provide a low stress grooming setting. We train the groomers to communicate what is best for the dog and what we can accomplish. At pick up, we also provide a report card to help communicate how the dog did.
Training & Support
We know this all sounds scary, but we have done it before and we are here for you! Before we go further, we would invite you into our flagship store, and spend a few hours getting to know us, our values, passion and culture. Then if you are interested, we can keep talking! If your values and passion align with ours, we will keep moving forward and help with you everything you need to get going! Before your grand opening we will host training classes at our flagship store in Minneapolis, MN. We will train you in everything you need to be successful, from our company culture, marketing, grooming, how to find team members, and using PawTastic.app (our custom booking program).
