Wag N’ Wash Natural Pet Food & Grooming Ranked Among Top 100 Franchises for 2020
February 18, 2020 // Franchising.com // CENTENNIAL, Colo. - Out of 100 franchise brands nationwide, Wag N’ Wash Natural Food & Grooming has been ranked among the best in Franchise Gator’s “Top 100 Franchises for 2020.” The list by the online franchise directory is published yearly to compile the franchise opportunities available for the new year, based on growth, sustainability, transparency and more.
Adding to the recognition, Wag N’ Wash is ranked on Franchise Gator’s “Fast Growing Franchises,” which focuses on concepts at a price point that is in line with the average prospect exploring franchise opportunities - raising two spots from last year’s list. In addition, Wag N’ Wash maintained its impressive ranking on the “Top Emerging Franchises” list at #4.
“It is so rewarding to see Wag N’ Wash ranked among so many prominent franchise businesses,” said Rob Flanagan, president of Wag N’ Wash Natural Pet Food & Grooming. “Coming off our 20th year in business, it’s great to see our locations continue to make a positive impact within their communities and build strong relationships with local non-profit organizations. Our franchise partners are the reason we continue to thrive within the industry and our success wouldn’t be possible without the hard work they put into their businesses each and every day. I’m excited to see where the brand is heading and what we will accomplish throughout 2020.”
The notable achievements continue for the brand, as Wag N’ Wash recently launched a new website enhancing the customer experience and providing a more hyper-localized online presence for each store. The website optimizes customer accessibility by showcasing products and services offered at every location. Wag N’ Wash is continuously implementing new practices and finding new ways to fulfill its commitment to improve the bond between companions and their guardians.
Collectively, Wag N’ Wash also found opportunities to make the world a better place. Coming off of its most recent national fundraising campaign for Freedom Service Dogs, the brand’s loyal customers, employees and supporters raised over $16,000 for the nonprofit organization. All proceeds contributed to Freedom Service Dogs’ mission of helping veterans who have made life-altering sacrifices unite with service dogs from the program. In addition, select Wag N’ Wash locations will take part in a Valentine’s Day themed adoption event to help shelter animals find new homes, dubbed “Red Roses & Wet Noses.”
“Before I became a franchise owner with Wag N’ Wash, I was a longtime customer,” said Bill Wolfe, owner and operator of Wag N’ Wash Queen Anne. “I’ve always loved the strong emphasis Wag N’ Wash places on customer satisfaction and creating a positive experience for both pet owners and their companions. Since becoming a franchise partner in 2017, Wag N’ Wash has helped me strengthen my presence within my community, as I’m able to host adoption events to benefit local non-profits. I’m excited to continue to grow with the brand and look forward to opening two additional locations.”
Looking ahead, the specialty pet retailer is continuing to grow its footprint with qualified franchise owners who have the ambition and skillset to succeed with the company. In 2020, the brand is expected to open new stores, including a Northeast Dallas location with new franchise operator Tom Dang.
Since Wag N’ Wash opened its first store in Colorado Springs in 1999, the company has been the leading place for pet guardians to find quality goods and services for their companion pets and simply be pet people. It is the only pet retailer that offers a self-wash station, full-service grooming, a bakery and pet food. In addition, the store’s offerings include various brands of all-natural pet foods for dogs and cats, supplements, collars and leashes, toys, supplies and unique goods.
