Scenthound Making Strides in Pet Industry
Dog wellness concept sees their best year yet after launching their franchise opportunity
December 19, 2019 // Franchising.com // JUPITER, Fla. - Scenthound, an emerging brand in the $75 billion pet industry, is celebrating its first year as an official franchise and the growth the brand has experienced since launching the franchise opportunity.
Here’s a look at what Scenthound has accomplished in 2019:
- The brand launched its franchise opportunity in the spring.
- Jenna Monroe, the brand’s most tenured employee, was announced as the brand’s first franchisee.
- Scenthound signed two deals for six new stores in South Florida.
- Franchise development & pet industry veteran Eileen Proctor joined the executive team as Vice President of Franchise Development, and franchise expert Kieran Scott joined as Director of Franchise Operations.
“This year has been huge for us in launching our franchise opportunity,” said CEO Tim Vogel. “We have really taken our time to perfect our brand and this was finally the year we decided to share it with other hopeful entrepreneurs. We are proud of the progress we’ve made, and we know that this is only the beginning.”
Looking ahead to 2020, the dog grooming concept has plans to open 20 locations by the end of the year. The brand plans to target nearby markets within Florida and neighboring states in the Southeast.
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 a significant void 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 more importantly, sees beyond aesthetics and focus on a pet’s health.
To augment its growth, 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. 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.
