Wag N’ Wash Signs Agreement to Open Location in Dallas
Wag N’ Wash Natural Pet Food & Grooming signed an agreement with local entrepreneur Tom Dang for the Northeast Dallas area and the forthcoming location is expected to open early 2020.
Wag N’ Wash in Northeast Dallas will offer self-wash and grooming services, natural food products and bakery items that are corn-free, soy-free, wheat-free, preservative-free, with no filler ingredients. As a local owner and operator, Dang plans to oversee daily business operations and get involved in the community through various fundraisers and adoption events.
“Dallas is known for being one of the top dog-friendliest cities making it the perfect place for Wag N’ Wash, so my eagerness to open the store continues to grow every day,” said Dang. “I am excited to soon live out my entrepreneurial dream and introducing Dallas to the neatest pet store out there—somewhere to wash ‘em, feed ‘em, spoil ‘em and love ‘em.”
As an animal lover and a guardian to two companion pets, a pug and Somali cat, Tom wanted to own a business in the pet industry after retiring from his job in software development. Tom’s business owner mentality paired with his passion for providing companion pets with the best quality of life help him connect with Wag N’ Wash guests.
“As we continue to grow across the U.S., we’re thrilled to partner with individuals like Tom who has shown that he is committed to the health and happiness of companion animals,” said Rob Flanagan, president of Wag N’ Wash. “Tom is not only an animal lover, but a hard worker, and we’re confident his efforts with Wag N’ Wash will be warmly received in Dallas. We are looking forward to supporting Tom throughout his journey.”
With nearly 20 stores open throughout the country, Wag N’ Wash is focused on growing the brand in new markets with qualified franchisees.
The average investment to own and operate a Wag N’ Wash 3,500-4,200 square foot store is approximately $638,420. This includes the initial franchise fee of $45,000, build-out costs, training expenses, the first three months of rent, furniture, signage, computer equipment, inventory and supplies, initial advertising and grand opening costs. Two- and three-unit agreements are also available to select candidates.
