Scenthound Opens Doors in Boca Raton to Keep Local Dogs Clean & Healthy
The Jupiter-founded groomer opens fifth store in South Florida, with more to come
September 16, 2020 // Franchising.com // BOCA RATON, FL - On a mission to keep dogs clean and healthy, Jupiter-based Scenthound is opening a new location in Boca Raton this month. Offering monthly memberships suitable for all dog breeds, the brand is reinventing grooming and changing the way pet owners care for their furry family by focusing on overall wellness. With various locations open across Palm Beach County, Scenthound is now opening its fifth corporate “Scenter” on September 28th at Westwinds of Boca, 9858 Glades Rd, Suite D-3 in Boca Raton.
The grooming franchise is known for its preventive care services that are necessary to keep all dogs healthy. It quickly became a local favorite in Palm Beach County, and the brand launched its franchise opportunity last year to bring its services and dog-loving family to new communities even during the pandemic. The new Scenter opening this month is soon to be followed by additional locations in Palm Beach Gardens, Parkland, Miami, and more. The West Boca location will follow stringent protcols that Scenthound has put in place to promote safety onsite during COVID-19.
“Boca Raton is an area we’ve had our eyes on for quite a while,” said CEO Tim Vogel. “It’s a community that really loves their dogs and we look forward to taking good care of them. We know that the pet parents in the area will be interested in our wellness-driven approach to keep their dogs clean and healthy.”
For a limited time, the new Boca Raton Scenter is running a promotion offering discounted memberships to those who sign up prior to the grand opening. For the first three months of operation, they are also waiving all first-year annual fees.
With five locations now open and operating in Florida, the membership-based grooming brand has 27 additional units in development throughout Florida, Georgia, Nevada, and North Carolina. The brand is on track to sell 40 total units and open 10 by the end of the year.
Scenthound was founded in 2015 after CEO Tim Vogel spent more than a decade running both a mobile grooming business and local grooming Scenters and seeing first-hand the shortcomings within a booming pet industry and the lack of education surrounding dog grooming. Vogel began a mission to give dog parents a fast, easy, and affordable way to stay on top of their dog’s routine care.
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 family is cared for on a routine basis.
“As we expand our presence nationally, we seek to educate pet parents on the importance of taking care of your dog on a routine basis,” added Vogel. “There are many misconceptions about grooming and we are excited to show the Boca community how big of a difference preventive care can make for your dog’s health and comfort.”
As part of its expansion plan, Scenthound is actively seeking multi-unit franchise partners who are passionate about dogs and are looking for a ground level opportunity in a booming industry.
The brand has implemented new virtual ways of meeting prospective franchisees and has seen continued success during the pandemic. 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 preventive 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 now five locations open and operating in South Florida and 26 additional units in various stages of development. For more information, visit the Scenthound website.
