Whether they hop, fly, bound, or snooze, pets have captured people’s hearts—and their wallets.
Pet industry spending is at an all-time high with overall spending for 2015 expected to exceed $60 billion. The American Pet Products Association reports that 65% of U.S. households own a pet, which equates to 79.7 million homes. The pet supply industry has proven resilient expanding 6.5% year-over-year even during the recession.
Who could have predicted that pets and pet supplies would become so profitable? Pet Supplies Plus, that’s who! What makes the Pet Supplies Plus franchise opportunity all the more remarkable is that a Pet Supplies Plus franchise store typically exceeds $2,500,000 million dollars annually. For an aspiring business owner like yourself, Pet Supplies Plus can provide a premier retail franchise business system that enables you to join the rapidly expanding pet products and services market.
The first store opened in Redford, MI in 1988, and Pet Supplies Plus has grown to over 315 franchised and corporate Pet Centers located in 25 Midwest and Eastern states. With over twenty-five years of successful retail franchise experience Pet Supplies Plus not only provides the tools essential for your success, but also the opportunity to achieve your American dream of independence, individual growth, and financial self-sufficiency.
