We Brits love our pets and with a booming pet industry it is possible to invest in dog or pet franchise opportunities from anywhere just under £1000 to around £40,000. Approximately 40 per cent of UK households are pet owners.
We are especially in love with our dogs at 24 per cent of that figure owning dogs and approximately 17 per cent of households owning cats. When we think of dog or a pet store franchise we forget that some people do truly prefer other pets, perhaps household pets, not ones that run wild outside or need walking and poop scooping.
Various types of franchise opportunity
Pet care is really a big part of our lives nowadays as we still want to go off on foreign holidays and more often than not, families live so far away from their parents or other siblings, and friends and neighbours are too busy working themselves that it is impossible for them to commit to pet minding.
So, pet care or a pet hotel franchise could be a very lucrative industry to be in for an animal lover. Of course animal ones are really meant not just for business minded people but for people who truly have a calling and a love for animals. Some skill and background knowledge is advisable too otherwise the other half of the team is going to need some veterinary skills to take the best care of these animals.
If it is less the actual pet care and poop scooping dog hotel franchise a person is looking for and more a pet shop franchise and pet food franchise on the agenda then pet business opportunities do come in all shapes and sizes. For under £15,000 minimum investment a person could invest in a van style business offering home delivery of quality pet foods direct to the customers door along with advice and competitive prices this style of pet care franchise is a huge help to those busy, busy people with barely enough time to walk their four legged friend let alone go shopping for the best quality pet food.
