Press release: Pet Supplies Plus
Pet Supplies Plus, the largest independent pet retailer in North America, continues to experience tremendous growth with 69 new store commitments signed year-to-date for 2021.
From these 69 new store commitments, the pet retailer named one of this year’s Fastest-Growing Franchises by “Entrepreneur Magazine,” will continue to grow its footprint in hundreds of neighborhoods across the country including the following states: Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Nebraska, New York, Minnesota, Missouri and Texas.
“It’s incredible to watch our franchise lead in one of the hottest industries out there. Not only are our existing owners increasing their number of locations, but we’re also adding new owners to our pack who are eager to cater to the growing demand of pet ownership,” said Chris Rowland, CEO of Pet Supplies Plus.
Of the 69 stores committed to so far this year, 25 stores are with existing owners and 44 stores are with new owners.
“Providing a ‘minus the hassle’ experience is something we take pride in, not only for our neighbors, but also our franchise owners. We provide purchasing power and hands-on support with e-commerce, merchandising, marketing, supply chain logistics and other retail processes. This allows our owners more time to get into the storefront and community to build strong local connections with their neighborhood pet parents,” said Rowland.
The pet retailer named No. 1 in the “Pet Category,” for the seventh consecutive year by “Entrepreneur Magazine,” continues to attract entrepreneurs from all walks of life, including those who are looking to switch careers or leave corporate America. The new Pet Supplies Plus franchisees come with a wide variety of experience across many different industries, including backgrounds in real estate, finance, law, veterinary medicine and software.
Pet Supplies Plus continues to expand its paw print because it understands that local retail works best when it is powered by a passion-driven franchise owner who is backed by a large organization that provides top-of-the-line processes and services for all.
