What Makes Pet Supplies Plus The Best Pet Franchise?

Simply put, we had a stellar performance in a year that walloped the rest of the retail sector. Our Average Unit Volume (AUV), or the average annual sales across all of our locations, grew by leaps and bounds in 2020 to $2.4M*, up YOY from $2.2M. This proves, once again, that Pet Supplies Plus is the best pet franchise to own even in volatile market conditions.

Our Customers Love Our Omni-Channel Shopping Choices

People love pets, and our customers (we call them neighbors) spent even more time with their furry family members during the pandemic. As a source of love, comfort, relaxation and exercise, pets played a huge role in helping people get through COVID-19. As our AUV shows, pet owners returned the love by shopping for lots of creature comforts. Known for our innovation, we pivoted quickly to adapt to evolving consumer needs, proving our chops as a leading pet franchise. By offering omni-channel shopping options, our stores were able to keep providing our community with high-quality food, accessories and services they needed to keep their pets happy and healthy. 

Convenient online shopping with fast curbside pickup, as well as traditional click and ship delivery options, helped ensure the pets and people who love them got what they wanted when they wanted it. And unlike big-box stores, we offer our neighbors a friendly, knowledgeable mom-and-pop vibe with the most sought-after brand names in pet food and supplies. It’s a tail-wagging combination that continues to make us a best franchise to own.

Why a Pet Supplies Plus Franchise Opportunity Is Unbeatable

Franchises tend to do well in uncertain times because of many factors—commercial real estate becomes more readily available, investors are looking for fresh opportunities, and entrepreneurs are seeking proven brands with name recognition, stable day-to-day operations and solid corporate support. Pet Supplies Plus has an outstanding reputation not only among its customers but also its Franchise Owners. “From marketing to merchandising and everything in between, the support we get from Pet Supplies Plus is phenomenal,” says Brian Rolf, former Marine and current Pet Supplies Plus Multi-Unit Franchise Owner. 

As Top Dog, We Go The Distance

SVP of Franchising and Stores, Nick Russo, knows how hard Pet Supplies Plus has worked to grow a brand that inspires passion and loyalty from its Franchise Owners and believes that strong leadership will continue to drive exceptional momentum in the decade to come. “Our growth at Pet Supplies Plus over the past five years has been nothing short of extraordinary,” Nick said, “but as I look back celebrating store number 500, and in the same week celebrating store 501, 502, and 503, with over 200 stores in the pipeline still yet to open, we’re on path to hit 900 stores plus in the next five years.” See more here.
