New Wag N’ Wash Natural Food & Bakery Coming to Broomfield
April 03, 2018 // Franchising.com // DENVER - Wag N’ Wash Food & Bakery is set for further expansion in Colorado. Founded in Colorado Springs, Colorado, the full-line specialty retail destination for dogs and cats is slated to open a new location in Broomfield.
Located at 1100 Highway 287 in Broomfield, the new storefront is slated to open in June and will be owned and operated by Mike and Lisa Schreiber, who ultimately plan to open at least two locations total in the area over the next several years.
“I am thrilled to bring Wag N’ Wash to Broomfield,” said Mike whose love for animals was ignited by his first dog - Beamer - a Dalmatian he adopted in ‘93. “I’m committed to helping pet owners understand how important proper nutrition is to their pet companions, and Wag N’ Wash shares this same mission. I’m comfortable and confident in knowing that I will provide pet products that are made with human-grade ingredients.”
After years of working at the Chicago Board of Trade and the telecommunications industry, Mike is combining his experience, and passion for animals to follow his dream of operating a business where he can aid in improving their quality of life. The decision to join the Wag N’ Wash family comes as Mike and his wife transition from Chicago, IL to Broomfield, CO in his pursuit of becoming a successful Wag N’ Wash owner.
“We knew we wanted to begin our entrepreneurial journey with a pet concept,” said Mike. “We believe in Wag N’ Wash’s culture and atmosphere. We aim to provide a one stop shop where pet owners can wash ‘em, feed ‘em, and spoil ‘em all in one cool place.”
Founded in 1999, Wag N’ Wash offers a community for pet enthusiasts to come, find quality goods and services for their pet companions, and simply be pet people. Among the store’s offerings are various brands of all-natural pet foods for dogs and cats, supplements, collars and leads, toys, supplies and unique goods. In addition, Wag N’ Wash’s do-it-yourself dog wash facility is designed to put convenience and fun into the “chore” of washing your dog. And of course, no trip to Wag N’ Wash would be complete without visiting the store’s in-house bakery, rare in the pet store market, which offers treats such as Liver Bites, Pumpkin Ravioli, and a variety of pies, cakes and muffins using human grade ingredients.
Expert nutritional staff is always available to help customers make the best food and treat choices; and all the while, furry friends are mingling throughout the store. Each store builds its own unique community for pets and pet enthusiasts.
Each Wag N’ Wash store also actively supports local non-profits who share the company’s mission of enhancing the quality of life for companion pets and their guardians. In 2017 alone, Wag N’ Wash stores donated over $100,000 worth of gourmet biscuits, all-natural pet food, free washes, free merchandise and monetary donations back to their communities. In addition, Wag N’ Wash works with local rescue groups and has single-handedly been responsible for the adoption of more than 2,100 cats and dogs through its adoption fairs.
“As we continue to expand our presence in Colorado, it’s critical to find the right franchise partners who are passionate about the brand,” said Wag N’ Wash co-founder Dan Remus. “We couldn’t be more excited about welcoming Mike and Lisa to the team. They share the same level of compassion for animals, and the drive to make a positive impact on this industry as we do. We have no doubt that the Broomfield community will join us in our mission to improve the lives of companion animals while helping them transition to a much healthier lifestyle.”
The average investment to own and operate a Wag N’ Wash 3,500-4,200 square foot store is approximately $638,329. This includes the franchise fee of $40,000, build-out costs, training expenses, the first three months of rent, furniture, signage, computer equipment, inventory and supplies, initial advertising and grand opening costs. Three- and five-unit agreements are also available to select and qualifying candidates.
Today, there are 17 Wag N’ Wash locations throughout Colorado, Arizona, Nevada, New Jersey, Maryland, Minnesota, Texas, Kentucky and Washington.
