Woofie's Celebrates Growth in 2019
Woofie’s, a new franchise in the $75 billion professional pet care industry, paralleled that growth as it expanded in its home market and brought new programs and services to the area.
In 2019, Woofie’s signed and opened its first three franchises; launched pet tech, pet CPR and first-aid classes for the public; partnered with the Paragon School of Grooming to open Woofie’s Academy; served 7,000 pets; and won several awards.
“We are thrilled with the strides we made in 2019,” said Amy Reed, co-founder and co-owner. “After opening three mobile pet spas, Woofie’s Academy and launching our Pet Tech classes, we’ve established Woofie’s as a one-stop shop for all pet care needs. We are proud of the progress we’ve made and know this is only the beginning.”
Looking ahead to 2020, Woofie’s plans to open five new franchise locations, hopefully in Virginia, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and South Carolina.
Founded in 2004, Woofie’s offers personalized pet sitting and dog-walking services that include consultations with a member of the management team, in-home overnight care and Bed & Biscuit overnight care. The company’s mobile pet spa provides one-on-one, cage-free grooming services such as breed-specific haircuts, nail trims, hydrosurge baths and specialized de-matting and de-shedding treatments. The customization of products and services for each pet and the focus on the customer experience further set Woofie’s services apart from others in the industry.
Woofie’s is actively seeking franchise partners who are passionate about dogs and are looking to be hands-on with the business. Each Woofie’s franchise will employ a team of pet sitters, dog walkers, mobile groomers and back-office administrators.
