Press release: Pet Evolution
Pet Evolution, a healthy pet supply franchise dedicated to providing the highest quality food, treats, grooming, self-wash and mobile nail trims, has seen great growth in the first half of 2022. With its entrance into five new regional markets, and the addition of two new franchise experts to their leadership team, the brand expects its momentum to continue as we enter the second half of the year. The demand for high-quality pet food, treats and full-service and self-serve grooming is booming. A survey conducted by the American Pet Products Association, stated 69 million households in the U.S. own a dog, hence generating more demand than supply chains or groomers can handle for American pet owners. Enter the need for massive expansion with the Pet Evolution brand.
The brand has awarded territories to an array of partners with the common mission of providing healthier and happier lives to pets. Pet Evolution’s newest partners include:
- Regional Developers, Eli and Susie da Silva in San Antonio and Austin, Texas
- Regional Developers, Ritu and Harpreet Sethi in Orange County, California
- Regional Developers, Ryan and Trish Gusick in Michigan
- Regional Developer, Shankar Bharadwaj in Washington
- Regional Developer, William (Jeff) Jeffress in Maryland/D.C.
- Franchisees, Phani and Sujana Raghupathy in Washington
“We have seen tremendous growth in the first half of 2022,” said Peter Carlson, president of Pet Evolution Franchising, LLC. “The brand is growing nationally with solid business operators as we expand into five new markets. We have also made the conscious decision to grow just as fast internally to better support the regional developers and franchisees with executives who have a long pedigree in franchising.”
To assist in the brands rapid growth, the corporate team has welcomed Denise Gorlick, Director of Real Estate and Development, and Keren Nimmo, Chief Innovation Officer, to their leadership team. Gorlick will manage the development and grand opening pipeline of new franchise locations. She brings a long history of directing franchise openings with the goal to set them up for immediate and future success. Nimmo, with a robust tech background, will lead Pet Evolution’s digital innovation, working to streamline the brand with a new POS system, an online booking solution, and more. Both Gorlick and Nimmo serve as vital additions to Pet Evolution’s already-strong leadership team, further providing unparalleled support to its franchise partners.
Pet Evolution plans to award 15 development regions by the end of 2022 and secure 20 additional franchise locations. As the demand for high quality pet products and services rises, the brand is poised to supply healthier pet food options, retail products and grooming services.
Adding to its success, Pet Evolution introduced its third location in its home state of Minnesota, with the opening of the St. Cloud location in June. The brand’s upcoming location in Frisco, Texas will be their first location outside of Minnesota, slated to open in Q3 of this year. Pet Evolution has no plans of slowing down, with a goal of having eight stores open by the end of the year. Looking ahead, the brand plans to open additional locations in Frisco, Texas, Orange County, California, and the Maryland and D.C. areas.
“We have added the most talented individuals to our regional developer team and they are the ideal leaders to open our first dozen locations,” added Carlson. “As we continue to expand, we are equally dedicated to strengthening our internal team to best support our brand and franchisees, working towards the common goal of bringing quality holistic full-service pet care into new communities throughout the country.”
