    EarthWise Pet | Turnersville, NJ



There are lots of businesses that can maximize ROI. We maximize joy, too.

At EarthWise Pet, we believe that pets are family. That’s why we’ve devoted more than four decades to ensuring furry friends have access to high quality nutrition, safe supplies and top-notch grooming services nationwide.

To accomplish this mission, we provide our franchise owners with a set of proven tools designed to create stability and drive growth regardless of location or economic conditions.  

Our first affiliate family-owned store was opened in 1977 in Huntington Beach, CA. From there, we’ve played a critical part in the growth of the $70 billion pet industry and even been named among America’s top pet store franchise opportunities for multiple years in a row. Sales averaged over $619,000 per location in 2017; the top half of franchisees averaged over $800,000 per location.

What makes our pet store franchise model stand out? Take a look below.

A holistic approach to serving pets and families

EarthWise invests considerable time and resources to ensure our stores are more than retail outlets — we focus intensely on nutritional consulting, overall pet wellness and on improving the bond between pet and owner.  We’ve introduced a slew of new training tools that help our franchise owners learn their business and become true educators. By teaching customers how to keep their pets healthy and happy, and by providing proper nutrition and services, we build strong relationships with customers and our communities.   

Love powers our commitment to excellence

EarthWise leverages green business practices and all-natural products to promote health among pets, their owners and the communities in which they live. We believe that proper nutrition and care is critical to the long-term health and wellbeing of animals. Families want the best for their pets. That’s what we provide. Our franchise owners appreciate the joy that comes from the wag of a tail. We strive to empower families with the products and services they need to keep their pets around for a long, long time.  

Strong lines of communication for franchisees

The EarthWise board of directors believes so strongly in the value of relationships that all our franchise owners have a direct line of communication with the EarthWise owners and other franchisees. In fact, our internal communications and reporting platform is among the most advanced in the industry.

Detailed, personalized franchise support

At EarthWise, we pride ourselves on striving to be the most innovative pet supply, grooming and self-wash retail chain in America. Our personalized franchise support covers pre-opening, store management and multi-store expansion, and it also includes a multitude of services ranging from site location and design to product selection, IT and ongoing HR management support. We also have introduced a one-of-a-kind pet nutrition education program, and we employ profit coaches who can help franchise owners achieve the results they’re after.
