An estimated 11 million UK citizens have a pet in their household. We love our pets so much that we refuse to cut back on pet costs, with expenditure on pet care defying the odds when it comes to the economic downturn and showing steady growth. Could this phenomenon be down to the number of cute cat videos we watch online every day? Or perhaps it's those puppy dog eyes?
Regardless of the cause, spending on pet accessories, food, grooming and even digital devices is booming - and that's without us even mentioning treats. It's estimated that the British population spends £1 billion a year on treats alone for their beloved friends, which is great news for those whose livelihood relies on the industry.
Owning a pet franchise allows you very quickly to become an expert in an established and professional organisation. When it comes to pets, owners want a name they can trust, which is why franchising is the perfect option for those looking to start a business in this sector. You will benefit from the years of goodwill and expertise built up by some of the world's leading pet brands - to the delight of your customers.
From man’s best friend, up to more exotic animals such as lizards and iguanas, we’re spending more money on our companions than ever before. As a result, there has never been a better time to get involved in a pet franchise. Franchises are an excellent option for those looking to start a business and are highly in demand. Opening a franchise allows you to open in smaller towns with cheaper rent and less competition, maximising your profits.
