Pet Supplies Plus Reports Franchise Growth in 2019
Pet Supplies Plus revealed that it continues to experience significant growth, receiving a total of 81 signed franchise agreements in 2019 to date.
The 'Minus the hassle' pet retailer welcomed 32 new franchisees to its system this year, accounting for 53 of the 81 new units sold. Additionally, 11 existing Pet Supplies Plus franchisees reinvested in the business and agreed to build 27 more stores across the country.
States where agreements were signed in 2019 include Texas, New York, Florida, Nevada, South Dakota and California. In fact, the South Dakota and Nevada agreements are brand milestones as the stores will be the first Pet Supplies Plus locations in those states.
"It's incredibly gratifying to see new franchisees and existing owners continue to invest in our brand," said Chris Rowland, Pet Supplies Plus CEO. "Coming into the year, we thought we set a lofty-but-attainable unit-growth goal for our system, and we surpassed that number by 30 stores. It's validation that our candidates and current franchisees believe in the value we provide neighbors and their pets."
Additionally, Pet Supplies Plus offers You Click. We Fetch, an order-online and pickup in-store program that combines its personal-neighbor experience with the convenience of e-commerce. The omni-channel service allows neighbors to shop with their neighborhood Pet Supplies Plus how and when they want. Pet Supplies Plus is also developing You Click. We Fetch, a buy online and deliver-from-store program for 2020.
