Press release: Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming
Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming, a leading pet service franchise brand in the U.S., is expanding to Carmel, Indiana. With an expanding presence across the country, the leading grooming and pet retail franchise is currently in 18 states. The four new stores, currently under development, will be owned and operated by Manaj and Nikunj Jadawala. The first location will open in early 2024 and the second in 2025.
“We are eager to bring Woof Gang Bakery and Grooming’s upscale products and grooming services to communities in Carmel,” said Woof Gang Bakery and Grooming franchisee Nikunj Jadawala. “As pet owners, we were impressed by Woof Gang’s high standards, welcoming leadership team, and successful business model. My wife and I are thrilled to join a network of people who share the same passion for pets as we do.”
Indiana’s reputation for profitable business growth is one of the reasons Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming is prioritizing expansion in the state. In 2022, a study by CNBC rated all 50 states for business and Indiana ranked 14th. The study noted that the state received high marks in the economy, infrastructure and business friendliness category, which is a perfect fit for Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming.
“We are excited to be opening four new stores in the Midwest. Nikunj and Manaj are exceptional business professionals who will take our brand to the next level,” said Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming CEO Ricardo Azevedo. “Our franchise is rapidly growing and will continue to provide personalized care for pet owners and their beloved animal companions.”
The top tier pet retail and grooming franchise achieved record growth in 2022, opening 25 locations to meet the increased demand for pet services. This year, Woof Gang Bakery and Grooming is expanding overseas to Canada and is projected to open 50 more locations nation-wide. According to the American Pet Products Association, there are 85 million pet households in the nation, and annual pet care spending is estimated to exceed $124 billion. In addition, growth in the professional pet grooming industry is expected to top 11 percent per year through 2023, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming continues to grow and seeks aspiring entrepreneurs to join the Woof Pack. The brand’s leadership team is dedicated to the founding philosophy of staying committed to the happiness, health and well-being of pets, which includes how they look.
