Petland waives franchise fees for Veterans!

In support of our nation's veterans, Petland today announced that Petland's initial franchise fee will be waived during the months of June and July for qualifying veterans.

Petland - Grow a Business in a Growing Category

The pet industry continues to grow in spite of a challenging economy. U.S. industry expenditures grew from $17 billion in 1994 to $45 billion in 2009*. According to the 2009/2010 National Pet Owners Survey, 62% of U.S households own one or more pets. This equates to 71.4 million homes! Sales are growing! Ownership is growing! Consumer awareness of what pets need to thrive is growing!

The two largest pet supply chains, Petsmart and Petco (over 1800 company owned stores; they do not offer franchises) combined achieve only a 17% market share. This demonstrates the gap in the market place and the unique opportunity for Petland franchisees.

Petland - a unique approach

We have 47 years of experience in developing Petland stores that stand apart from the competition. Pets and the people who love them respond to a store that understands the emotion and passion pets generate in their lives. Our Pet Counselors are uniquely trained to engage and educate each customer, which ends in not only a sale today but in years of patronage that makes it easier to grow your business.

Petland - the right merchandise - the right pets Petland - the right merchandise - the right pets

Petland - preparation for success

Petland provides unparalleled operational training. Management training at our state-of-the-art Business Improvement Center is required for all franchisees. This is followed up by hands-on training at a high velocity, fast-paced training store, and a further 2 weeks of training in your location for you and your Petland team.

Petland - flexibility - a scalable business model

Stores can be scaled from 2,500 square feet to over 6,000 square feet. The smaller format store does not offer puppies but does offer tropical fish, birds and small animals as well as the best of the best in pet supplies and accessories. The larger format store has a state-of-the-art kennel and a proprietary air handling system to promote a healthier environment for our pets. The larger model offers puppies, kittens, a large selection of tropical fish, reptiles, birds and small animals, and a vast assortment of pet supplies and accessories

Not only can you scale the size of your store, but you can scale the size of the market in which you locate it. From small towns to the largest cities in the U.S., Petland has a niche opportunity to grow a business.
