Press release: Pet Evolution
Pet Evolution, a pet supply store dedicated to providing your furry friends with high-quality food and services, has officially brought on Monish Chadha as a regional developer to help achieve the brand’s goal of bringing 23 locations across the Houston area within the next 10 years. This announcement comes at a time where the $100 billion dollar pet industry is projected to reach $275 billion by 2030, according to Morgan Stanley.
With two locations currently open in Minnesota, Pet Evolution is accelerating their franchise growth by expanding throughout the Lone Star state. Chadha has invested into the brand’s regional development in Houston and is on a mission to find franchisees who will be the perfect fit to run the new locations.
“Pet Evolution is a brand I am really excited to become a part of as I resonate with the standard of pet care they provide,” said Chadha. “I believe that the brand has significant room for development as Houston has exploded with families over the recent years, seeing a rise in pet adoptions. I want to be able to provide quality pet products to those families, giving them peace of mind.
Prior to joining Pet Evolution, Chadha entered the franchising world in 2011, beginning his tenure as a franchisee for Aqua Tots Swim School. Today, he owns three locations, in addition to sitting on the brand’s technology and strategy advisory board. Chadha, joined by his development team, will ensure each franchisee smoothly transitions into becoming part of the Pet Evolution family.
“While I was initially inspired by Pet Evolution’s curated approach to pet care, it’s the team that won me over,” added Chadha. “Their leadership team has provided authentic and clear communication, building the trust I seek in a brand.”
Pet Evolution was founded in 2012 by friends Rian Thiele and Mike Osborn, both having watched their childhood dogs suffer through the itchy paws, chronic ear infections, and multiple vet trips of undiagnosed food allergies.
Pet Evolution began franchising after Peter Carlson, President of Pet Evolution Franchising, LLC, fell in love with the brand, remains a loyal customer to this day. Before joining the team, Peter turned to Pet Evolution as his Standard Poodle, Leo, struggled with digestive and allergy issues, following countless tries with other products with no results. After switching to products endorsed by their team, Peter immediately saw positive results to help his dog live a happier life.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Monish and his development team to Pet Evolution,” said Carlson. “His commitment to his franchisee’s success is unparalleled. We can’t wait to see how he guides our future partners towards achieving and exceeding their goals.”
Pet Evolution is actively seeking single and multi-unit franchise partners. While they encourage those with franchise experience to apply, their approachable system is designed to accommodate first time franchisees as well. Above all else, Pet Evolution is searching for partners that have a love for animals. Including the franchise fee, the initial investment for a Pet Evolution location ranges between $450,000 to $598,550.
