Scenthound Looks to Clean Up In Pet Industry
With four locations open and operating throughout Florida, the dog grooming & wellness brand looks to expand nationally
October 25, 2019 // Franchising.com // JUPITER, FL - As the pet industry continues experiencing explosive growth, Scenthound, a new franchise in the $75 billion professional pet industry, is changing the way pet owners care for their furry friends, focusing on overall wellness - not just haircuts.
“Dog parents today want to know that the people caring for their pups are going to treat them like the beloved family members they are. And they need to know that the entire dog grooming experience is going to fit into their busy schedule,” said Scenthound founder and CEO Tim Vogel. “Scenthound is meeting those needs, and exceeding those desires, one happy pup at a time. We’re excited about expanding our footprint and offering our pioneering dog grooming approach to even more pet parents nationwide.”
With four locations open and operating in Florida, the membership-based grooming brand has signed deals for three franchise locations under development since announcing their franchise opportunity in spring of 2019. Scenthound estimates an additional 20 locations will open in 2020, with a focus on Southeastern markets, including Georgia, Alabama, Texas, North Carolina, South Carolina and Florida.
“Scenthound is a pioneering concept,” said Vogel. “Most pet parents associate grooming with a haircut, but that’s just not the case. Scenthound is wellness-based and is focused on preventative care for our furry family members. We are on a mission to educate pet parents and to ensure that dogs everywhere are clean and healthy.”
Scenthound was founded in 2015 after Vogel spent more than 10 years running both a mobile grooming business and local grooming centers, and seeing first-hand the problems in the booming pet industry and the lack of education surrounding dog grooming. Vogel began a mission to give dogs and their owners a fast, easy, and affordable grooming “scenter” that can provide a great haircut, but can also see beyond aesthetics and focus on a pet’s health.
Embedded in the name, Scenthound focuses on the five core areas of maintenance: Skin, Coat, Ears, Nails and Teeth. Their Scent Techs are fully trained to give your dog the care that their breed requires – not just a haircut, and the membership program allows for dog owners to have the peace of mind that their furry friends are cared for on a routine basis.
Today, Scenthound is actively seeking single and multi-unit franchise partners who are passionate about dogs and are looking to be hands-on with the business.
“At Scenthound, we are a family who loves dogs and loves to make a difference. Franchise partners who join the Scenthound family will be a part of the new wave of the grooming industry.”
Including a franchise fee of $50,000, the initial investment for a Scenthound location ranges between $206,400 to $378,400.
Founded in 2015 and franchising since 2019, Scenthound is a wellness-focused, membership-based dog grooming business that is focused on preventative care for dogs. Focusing on Skin, Coat, Ears, Nails and Teeth, Scenthound sets themselves apart by giving dogs the quality care they need. Today, there are four locations open and operating throughout Florida.
