Villa La Paws Pet Resort Announces the Launch of its Nationwide Franchise Program

The pet resort and spa will offer a variety of franchise opportunities under its program umbrella.

PHOENIX--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Villa La Paws, a cage-free pet resort, spa and dog training company, today announced the launch of its nationwide franchise program, Villa La Paws LLC, as part of its goal to expand the brand’s footprint nationwide. The franchise program will leverage the strength of a $50-billion U.S. pet industry, by offering its plan for master- and regional-development.

“The demand is there, and our business model offers a number of key differentiators that sets Villa La Paws apart and makes it an attractive franchising product.”

The company’s goal is to have more than 250 franchise units spanning the country within four years. To fulfill this goal, they are actively seeking regional developers, multi-unit and single-unit operators to become franchise partners.

“Our franchise program has been in development for the past year, and the time is right to launch it,” said Tom Murray, Villa La Paws CEO and president. “The demand is there, and our business model offers a number of key differentiators that sets Villa La Paws apart and makes it an attractive franchising product.”

Murray has developed a franchise team based at the company’s flagship operations in Phoenix, Ariz. The team comprises Senior Vice President of Operations Theresa McQuown, veteran franchise developer and executive, John Dunatov, a national real estate specialist, and legal, IT, marketing and public relations professionals. The team also includes an in-house team of directors that deliver the training programs for franchising and unit operations, and grooming.

Villa La Paws is a multi-award winning pet resort and spa with two Phoenix locations. Core service offerings include cage-free dog daycare, pet grooming, dog training, and overnight care. In addition to its completely cage-free facilities, what sets the Villa La Paws franchises apart is its use of technology, which is incorporated into the franchise model including 24-hour, indoor/outdoor webcams accessible online and via the resort’s smart phone application, an iPhone-based national call center, and an integrated business system.
