December 08, 2010 // Franchising.com // VANCOUVER, British Columbia – Aussie Pet Mobile, the world's largest mobile pet grooming service, today announced it has signed a franchise agreement for North and West Vancouver with new owner Michelle Berg of Coquitlam. It is the company's third agreement within the past six months.
The announcement stems from a larger, national plan that calls for more than 300 Aussie Pet Mobile grooming units to open by 2015 in Canada.
"In early 2010, we mapped out an aggressive development plan for Canada and are meeting our growth objectives day in and day out," said Richard Avis, president and CEO of Aussie Pet Mobile, Canada. "The demand for mobile pet grooming services is continuing to increase in Canada, and Aussie Pet Mobile offers potential investors the opportunity to break into the industry without having to go at it alone. We are thrilled to have Michelle join the Aussie Pet Mobile franchise system and look forward to sharing in her successes."
A scaleable business requiring no commitment to real estate or retail shop leases, the Aussie Pet Mobile franchise fee starts at $29,000 and requires a minimum of $73,000 in capital for a single unit operation. A multi-unit option is also available for franchise investors interested in purchasing several vans within their exclusive territory, which is defined by postal codes, as each existing van grows towards its monthly "capacity."
The convenient mobile pet grooming service offers one-on-one attention in an inviting and relaxing atmosphere not typically found in store front grooming locations. The Aussie Pet Mobile, a custom designed Mercedes Benz Sprinter van fully self contained with air conditioning, heat, electricity, and water, relies on no outside electrical or water hookups, making the unique service easy for apartment or condo residents as well as homeowners. The van's ramp and spacious interior help pets maneuver easily and enhance the groomers' ability to ensure all of the pets' needs are met. Aussie Pet Mobile is also an avid user of eco-friendly products, which turn the grey water into an environmentally friendly composition, easily dispersed through natural resources versus a sewer or septic tank.
Aussie Pet Mobile's certified and trained groomers pamper pets with an exclusive 15-step spa treatment that includes a professional customized shampoo utilizing the patented custom built and trademarked hydro-bath, massage, towel and blow dry, brushing, and nail clipping, just to name a few treats.
