Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:
Fetch! Pet Care is a full service pet-sitting and Dog-Walking Franchise Opportunity.
Who would have thought that caring for pets could be lucrative? The fact is, over 69% of US households own one or more pets. It only follows that there would be a high demand for specialized pet care services. In 2007 alone, Americans were projected to spend over $41 BILLION (with a B) on their pets. That is DOUBLE of just a decade ago. By 2009 this number is projected to grow to over $52 billion. Pet owners are finding themselves working longer hours, traveling more for business/ personal reasons, and looking for alternatives to crowded kennels. In other words, they are spending more on the positive welfare of their furry, family members.
Last year, Fetch! Pet Care was voted among 100 of the Nation’s lowest risk, lowest cost franchises by Entrepreneur Magazine, and this year named one of 20 boom businesses to get into by Small Business Opportunities Magazine. The pet products and services industry is the 7th largest retail sector in America today, ahead of the toy, candy, jewelry and hardware industries! The demand for pet care services is outpacing supply. Pet care is proven to be recession resistant!
The franchise fees for this company includes the pet care industry’s most comprehensive training curriculum, including marketing, hiring, selling, scheduling and record keeping so you can provide the highest level of pet sitting and dog walking services possible. Imagine your own home-at-home fun-loving business, with a small initial investment, full support, and flexibility each day to enjoy life!
