“It’s incredible to watch our franchise lead in one of the hottest industries out there. Not only are our existing owners increasing their number of locations, but we’re also adding new owners to our pack who are eager to cater to the growing demand of pet ownership,” says Chris Rowland, CEO of Pet Supplies Plus.
Of the 69 stores committed to so far this year, 25 stores are with existing owners and 44 stores are with new owners.
“Providing a ‘Minus the hassle’ experience is something we take pride in, not only for our neighbors, but also our franchise owners. We provide purchasing power and hands-on support with e-commerce, merchandising, marketing, supply chain logistics and other retail processes. This allows our owners more time to get into the storefront and community to build strong local connections with their neighborhood pet parents,” adds Rowland.
