Strong industry

“It’s just a solid business model. The pet industry, for lack of a better term, is bulletproof. People want to take care of their pets — their pets have to eat. With all that in mind, the pet industry just keeps on growing and growing. I started this business when we were in the middle of a recession, and it’s just been strong ever since. There are other industries like, say, the coffee industry or clothing industry that will suffer when the economy suffers because people might buy cheaper clothes, or not buy their Starbucks. But with pets, they want to take good care of them by buying good quality food or toys. Even if times are tight, they’re still going to buy food.”

— Mason Hartman, franchisee

Entrepreneurial spirit

“The nice part of this is I not only run it, I own it. We’re able to establish cultures and values that are consistent with our beliefs in customer service and pet nutrition. We also have a grooming salon in one of our stores and a couple of self-wash stations. Being the owners, for my wife and myself, is fun. We like what we do. We enjoy coming to work.”

— Mark Pagan, multi-store franchisee

Passion for pets

“I chose this because I’ve always loved animals and, because of some pets that I’ve had over the years, nutrition was a huge focus for their ongoing health and quality of life. So, it just became a passion of mine. When my software job went away, I decided to pursue my dream of having a career where I worked with animals and was able to give them a better quality of life.”

— Eileen Anderson, franchisee

Help from the top

“We just can’t say enough good things about the franchise owners. From day one we just felt like we were being folded into this family. I think what we love the most about being part of this family is that there’s always someone there to help, and to answer questions. I think they are constantly looking at how to improve the brand, at how to support the franchisees.”

— Julie Ward, franchisee
