5 Reasons Why Multifamily Property Owners Love Dogdrop
Dogdrop continues its highly refined quest to become the biggest name in dog care.
On the road to expansion as a national brand, the emerging, tech-centered dog daycare franchise is capturing the attention of commercial landlords—who know how to spot a mega opportunity.
Here are five reasons Dogdrop is a mutually beneficial proposition for multi-unit family property owners and entrepreneurs seeking prime locations for a concept shaking up franchising.
1. Dogdrop Fills Unused Space
Look at any apartment building across the U.S., and you'll likely find empty ground-floor retail spaces. That's where Dogdrop comes in. The venture-backed concept, based on convenience and flexibility, is built for today's modern dog parents, who want high-quality pet care that fits their lifestyle.
"There is a huge amount of underutilized retail space with multi-unit family projects," explains Shaina Denny, cofounder and CEO of Dogdrop. "Property owners are looking to find concepts that will help attract and retain the residents who live above. And 90% of residents request more pet amenities at their apartment complexes. So, for the landlord, it's a win-win."
2. Happy Pet Owners = Happy Residents
Multifamily managers who go the extra mile to welcome pet owners reap multiple rewards. Pet-friendly policies attract and retain residents and increase the overall value of a property, resulting in a better living experience for pet parents and a more connected community for all residents.
Dogdrop offers high-quality open-play daycare overseen by highly trained staff, with a flexible membership-based pricing model. Dog owners have the peace of mind of knowing their pups are well cared for by "Droperators," daycare attendants who have experience in group dog interaction and dog behavior, along with a pet CPR certification.
3. Happy Residents=Happy Landlords
For property managers, having a high-quality dog daycare downstairs, with no overnight boarding, means less property disruption and reduced noise complaints upstairs.
"Unlike a boutique store or other one-off concept, Dogdrop's monthly membership can drive daily foot traffic to their property," Denny says. "We are also a great tie-in for discounts and move-in specials they offer for their new residents."
4. Build-Outs are a Breeze
Most ground-floor retailer sites are within 1,500 to 3,500 square feet, which means Dogdrop – at only 2,000 to 3,000 square feet—hits that "sweet spot," Denny says.
Dogdrop sites are intentionally smaller than typical daycare facilities, delivering an unparalleled level of care to each dog for minimal operating cost. The small footprint allows locations to be placed in dense and highly trafficked urban areas where traditional dog daycares are too big and too industrial to fit, making it easy for pet parents to drop their dogs off while they work, shop, or play.
5. The Perfect Partner
Dogdrop is primed to meet the surging demand for more flexible, on-demand access to quality dog care in an exploding industry sector. Experts project pet services to have the highest growth of any segment of the pet industry, with spending predicted to rise 143% by 2030 to $118 billion.
Building off the success of Dogdrop's original downtown Los Angeles location, the brand has more than 10 locations in development, including Denver's first Dogdrop in the trendy 9+CO community. The soon-to-open site, the first of five Dogdrop locations planned for the Denver area, is a shining example of the strong support and collaborative experience franchisees can expect.
"Because of the inbound we have received, we've been able to work on partnerships with larger multifamily developers and management groups," Denny says. "We're hands-on in assisting our franchisees with site selection and the lease negotiation part as well."
