Scenthound Continues National Growth
The Scenthound franchise continued to expand and sold 11 new units during the pandemic, including its first out-of-state deal.
The wellness-based groomer has four locations open in its home market of Palm Beach County, Fla., and now 21 units in development across three states. During the pandemic alone, the brand sold six units in the Atlanta area, three units in the Las Vegas area, and one unit in Parkland, Fla. Other units in development are in Boca Raton, Palm Beach Gardens, and Miami, Fla.
With new pet parents due to the COVID-19 adoption surge, Scenthound is taking initiatives to educate about the importance of preventive care to keep their pets healthy. The “Scenthound Salutes” campaign starting next month will invite new pet parents in for a free grooming and educational session to learn about how preventive care can change their new dogs’ life.
“We are proud to be in an industry that will continue to remain strong,” said Tim Vogel, CEO. “The pet industry has been thriving because people depend on pets for emotional support and improved quality of life. We believe that all dogs are therapy dogs, and seeing the animal shelters cleared out while the country was in quarantine showcases that. Our new franchisees chose to invest in us because they know that not even a pandemic could stop them from caring for and loving their dog.”
