Best Pet Franchise to Own: Why Pet Supplies Plus is a Rare Breed

Entrepreneur Franchise 500 Best of the Best 2021

People LOVE their pets—as they should! All dogs, cats, birds, fish, and reptiles out there deserve to have a loving home. Because pet owners want to pamper their animal companions now more than ever, the pet industry has been experiencing explosive growth. COVID and the subsequent mass adoption of quarantine pets only accelerated this growth, helping the industry surpass $100 billion in sales for the first time ever.

This is all to say that pets—and therefore pet franchises—are not going anywhere anytime soon. This makes the industry perfect for people who are interested in getting into franchising. In addition, it is a great opportunity for owners of other brands who want to expand their portfolio with a smart, stable investment.

But which pet store franchise should folks be looking to join?

While there are plenty to choose from, none ranked higher on Entrepreneur’s 2021 Best of the Best list of franchises to own than Pet Supplies Plus. We were selected as the top franchise in the “Pets” category and ranked 21st overall on the list of over 500+ franchise brands. This high ranking is reflected in our financials, as we have a strong AUV of $2.4M*.

But what makes Pet Supplies Plus the top dog when it comes to the best pet franchises to own? Let’s find out.

Our Franchise Owners Love What They Do

It certainly helps when your Franchise Owners are passionate about the industry. This is definitely the case with Pet Supplies Plus, as CEO Chris Rowland attributes the brand’s success and category leadership to the passionate, driven Franchise Owners.

“The team members are awesome, our neighbors are amazing, and our Franchise Owners are some of the best in the industry,” says Rowland.

When a franchise is filled with owners who love what they do and are invested in the industry they work in, it lifts the entire brand to new heights. So, if you’re an animal lover, Pet Supplies Plus is the perfect fit.

We Offer Convenient Shopping Options for Our Neighbors

Pet Supplies Plus makes it easy for Franchise Owners to find success with their convenient omnichannel shopping options. Whether our neighbors want to order their dog tasty treats and get it delivered on the same day or prefer to go into the store to find what they need, they can do either with ease.

In addition to online ordering and in-store shopping, neighbors can opt for curbside pickup, as well as our in-store grooming services. To be a successful pet franchise, you have to be nimble to consumer preferences. By being flexible with our shopping options, Pet Supplies Plus offers unmatched convenience and makes selling easy for our Franchise Owners.

We’ve Been Around for a While (But We Love to Learn New Tricks)

With over 30 years of pet and franchise industry expertise under our belt, we know what it takes to run a successful franchise. This expertise is shared with our Franchise Owners to ensure that they have what they need to succeed.

While we’ve been around for a while, we’re not afraid to innovate. Pet owners are always looking for the best products and services for their pets. And let’s face it, some pets are also pretty particular about their food and toys. Whether it’s our high-quality grooming services or making sure we have the best products on our shelves, we are constantly looking for ways to improve our offerings.

In fact, one of our brand values is Indie. Because we aren’t part of a giant chain, we have the freedom to innovate and fine-tune our brand to fit the needs of our neighbors.

Our other values are Approachable, Fun, and Passionate, which helps to create a warm, welcoming environment for everyone who enters our stores (whether on two legs or four).
