At Pet Supplies Plus, our goal is to be the alpha dog in the pet franchise business. We couldn’t be happier that Entrepreneur magazine recognized us as a franchise industry leader and gave us top honors as the #1 pet franchise for the sixth year in a row.
The competition was stiff. More than 1,100 companies competed for this year’s ranking, and we lead the pack in rigorous judging criteria that includes unit growth, brand power, franchise owner support, and financial strength and stability. Each franchise receives a cumulative score based on an analysis of more than 150 data points, and the 500 franchises with the highest cumulative scores become the Franchise 500 in ranking order.
2020 is going to be a great year for the pet industry and for Pet Supplies Plus! With more than 460 stores, we’re the largest independent pet store chain, and we just keep getting bigger. Pet Supplies Plus Franchise Owner Scott Buchel says, “pet retail is a huge category. It’s the fastest growing segment year after year.” From biscuits and bully sticks to supplements and squeaky toys, Americans spent a whopping $75B on their furry family members last year* and are poised to spend even more this year. Don’t wait—it’s the perfect time to partner with one of the best franchises to own and stake your claim in this profitable industry. As an opportunity to combine your entrepreneurial skills with your love of animals, it’s a big win-win.
A special shout-out to our pet franchise owners who make us #1. They know that pets are family members, too, and are committed to making their stores a one-stop destination for pet lovers looking for healthier food options, the latest toys and accessories, and professional care and grooming. Because of our owners, our stores are both a vibrant part of the community and a fun place to work. They provide high-quality products, information, and education about all things pet, and they partner with local shelters, rescues, and organizations to help pets in need. “It doesn’t feel like I’m going to work every day,” says Lori Nebel, Pet Supplies Plus Multi-Unit Owner, “because I love what I do. And the reward is the community involvement—you’re definitely giving back.”
