Market Watch:

FETCH! Pet Care (, the nation’s largest pet care brand offering professional pet sitting and dog walking services, with locations in 34 states across the U.S., today announced it has established its initial presence in New York City, and is currently operating numerous flagship franchise locations in New York State’s Westchester, Orange, Suffolk and Monroe Counties.

Despite a sluggish U.S. economy, annual spending on pets is expected to hit $52 billion next year, and the demand for notoriously recession-proof pet care services is at an all-time high, irrespective of economic conditions. Indeed, FETCH! Pet Care has set its sights on the Big Apple to provide coverage to the most concentrated population of pet owners in the United States, with the company now actively seeking franchisees to open any of the 150+ available locations in the widely available New York City and Tri-State area territory over the next two years.

“We decided to dramatically expand into New York City and the Tri-State area based not only on the high density of the pet population, but also the high incidence of residents with long work commutes and demanding jobs that require extended time away from home,” said Paul Mann, FETCH! Pet Care founder and CEO. “The region also boasts a highly enthusiastic, energetic, self-motivated and business savvy demographic of entrepreneurs, which are common characteristics of the most successful FETCH! Pet Care franchisees.”
