dog franchises, pet store franchises

Pet Evolution brought on Scot Ziessman to help achieve the brand’s goal of opening over 50 locations in the Midwest.

Ziessman’s first undertaking for the pet supply store will be to finalize opening his first franchise location in St. Cloud, Minn. in November of 2021. Additionally, he and his team will help open three more Minnesota locations and will help to expand the Pet Evolution brand to Wisconsin and Illinois.

With two locations currently open in Minnesota, Pet Evolution is accelerating its franchise growth by expanding in the Midwest. Ziessman has invested into the brand’s regional development in Wisconsin and Illinois and is on a mission to find franchisees who will be the perfect fit to run the new locations in both states.

Ziessman’s extensive background in franchising stems from his ownership with brands like Massage Envy and Fantastic Sam’s. He aims to secure single and multi-unit owners and accomplish this goal with the help of a proven operations team that includes experienced members like Dawn Agort-Kurth, who previously helped open over 90 Fantastic Sam’s locations in Minnesota. Ziessman and his team will ensure each franchisee smoothly transitions into becoming part of the Pet Evolution family.

“Pet Evolution is a brand that I believe will greatly benefit from franchising because they provide a standard of pet care that has become more popular as people realize how important their pets’ health is,” said Ziessman. “There is a clear need for Pet Evolution in more communities and I could not be happier to bring it to market.”
