The first PawSpa Resort opened in January of 2005. The business has been thriving ever since, and they now are projecting 10 franchisees over the next 12 months.
In the United States, 63% of all households are the proud owners of 1 or more pets. Pet-related sales, both products and services, touched $40.8 billion in America in 2007. That was a 6% increase as compared to 2006. Prior to quality boarding facilities, pet owners had few alternatives when they wanted to vacation. Mostly, they relied on neighbors or strangers to water and watch their pets. The professional boarding kennel business is gaining wider acceptance to care for a pet rather than impose the responsibility on family members or friends while traveling.
PawSpa Resort maintains the ultimate goal of creating and offering a plan for a safe, fun, resort-style concept of the traditional kennel. We take our love of pets coupled with your desire to own your own business and generate a proven, successful operational system for a resort-kennel concept providing upscale boarding, nurturing daycare, professional grooming, boutique gift items along with instruction in animal behavior and handling procedures.
