Dog care franchise opportunities

Why should I start a dog care franchise?

Starting a new business can be tough, and whilst becoming a My Best Friend franchisee will be hard work, it will be very rewarding.

We offer a proven and profitable business model with an industry leading level of support to give you every opportunity to succeed, and remember, our success depends on the success of our Franchisees.

The pet care market is growing at a rate of 4%* with The Pet Food Manufacturer’s Association (PFMA) estimating that 24%** of UK households now have at least one dog. Combine this with our increasingly busy life styles the need for dog care services is on the up and there has never been a better time to start a My Best Friend franchise.

We are offering a 10% reduction on our initial fee throughout 2017 with further discounts available for Franchisees who join us before the end of June.

Why choose my best friend?

We offer the most comprehensive and cost effective dog care franchise package in the UK today! Our system gives you everything you need to start and run a successful and profitable operation in your own exclusive territory, and don’t forget, as a franchisee you have the security of ongoing help and support from the My Best Friend team. What’s more we are proud to be a member of the British Franchise Association so you can invest with confidence.

What are the benefits?

Our complete range of services includes Home Boarding, Doggy Day Care, Dog Walking, Pet Sitting and Pet Transport and gives you the tools to expand the business through the development of a local network of carers, walkers and sitters. To help you start off on the right foot we waive our royalty fees for the first 3 months and of course as franchisee provide you with a host of support.

Who are we looking for?

Being a My Best Friend franchisee is not for everyone. We’re looking for people who share our passion to provide the absolute best dog care and to help us grow into a nationally recognised brand. If you’re a certified dog lover who is looking for the freedom of running their own business then we would love to hear from you.

What are the costs?

In our opinion the My Best Friend franchise package offers great value for money and a high return on investment; for an initial fee of £14,995 + VAT we give you the tools to get your business up and running. You may require working capital whilst you grow but don’t worry, we can help calculate just how much or little this may be. We have preferred lending agreements (subject to individual approvals) with Lloyds, Nat West and HSBC which can provide you with up to 60% of the initial fee.

How much can I earn?

This really depends on you. As with most things the more you put in the more you get out. As part of the application process we provide you with the tools to calculate what you could expect to earn over the first 2 years of running the business.

When the first location was started by Jon and Clara, year 1 turn-over was a fantastic £47,000* with year 2 estimated to be close to £70,000** making this one of the best opportunities available.

*Actual results from May 2015 – April 2016, ** Actual results from May 2016 – July 2016 with August 2016 – April 2017 estimated based on current performance. The above is not a guarantee of expected income and should not be taken as such.
