Press release: The Dog Stop
The Dog Stop, the award-winning and rapidly growing dog care franchise, recently announced a new operational partner and investor, Franvest Capital Partners Inc. The Franvest team, out of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, brings a tremendous amount of franchise experience and leadership along with a history of building highly successful and industry leading international franchise organizations.
The Dog Stop was bred from the beginning to be America’s best all inclusive indoor/outdoor dog care facility offering dog boarding, daycare, grooming, obedience training, in-home services and a dog retail store all under one roof. Its facilities exist to promote healthy and happy dogs through socialization, proper physical and mental stimulation paired with a holistic retail approach. Whether it’s running in a play yard, socializing with friends, or just lounging around, The Dog Stop is your one-stop-shop for all of your pup’s wants and needs.
Currently The Dog Stop has more than 20 state of the art locations in Alabama, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia. Additionally, more than 10 locations are currently under development with plans to expand aggressively throughout the U.S. in the coming years. Most major and secondary markets are available nationwide and the franchise development team is seeking qualified franchisees to help grow the brand and its award-winning dog care services.
The Dog Stop management team, including founders Jesse Coslov and Chris Kane, will continue to lead the company. Franvest president, David Hardy, will lead a team to expand the Board of Directors and provide strategic counsel and support.
The partnership will inject growth capital into the brand to establish new marketing programs and technologies, as well as boost development efforts to bring new qualified franchisees into the system. The investment will also enable The Dog Stop to improve its systems and processes, while continuing to provide award-winning dog care services. A new flagship corporate location, training facilities and corporate headquarters are also in development in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
