Share this business:
This listing is for a Growing & Profitable Dog Services business in Chicago. Year to date revenues in 2018 are up over 10% and the Seller estimates they will generate around $750,000 in sales. The Company offers premium, individual dog-walking and cat sitting services. Its employees only walk one household at a time and each dog is paired with a single, consistent walker. The Company prides itself on having employees instead of independent contractors. Each potential employee is put through a rigorous training program and background check.
Services are priced individually and are dependent on the number of pets per household. The current owner handles billing and client complaints. The Company has recently hired a new part-time scheduler, who the manager is currently training.
There are no licenses necessary to run the business. However, it’s advised to be a member of local pet organizations, as well as show vast knowledge in the industry.

- Building Sq. Ft.:
The Company currently operates from a shared office space. It takes up 400 sq/ft out of the 3000 sq/ft facility (plus use of common use area).
The Company has several competitors in its territory. However, it has good working relationships with a few of them and the companies frequently trade business. The seller is more than willing to discuss the main industry players with the buyer.
Growth & Expansion:
A new owner could easily grow the business by expanding the Company's high-rise market as well as branching into other territories around Chicago. Additionally, the new owner has the opportunity to eventually be able to use the office space as a daycare and grooming space. Offering discounts, attending the vast number of rescue events, sponsoring events, and connecting with other business owners are other options for growth.
