HydroDog Mobile Grooming Franchise Growing With Low-Cost Of Entry And Recession-Proof Concept
Watch for big blue dogs on a street near you.
HydroDog is a mobile dog-grooming service franchise with a culture of canine compassion that brings complete washing, grooming, and flea and tick treatment right to customers’ homes. It’s a lucrative market with untapped potential since there are more than 87 million dogs in the United States – that’s up 20 million since 2000.
The innovative brand was founded by Australian entrepreneur Anthony Amos and is best known for its exceptional dog grooming services ranging from conventional to luxurious, all offered inside the “Big Blue Dog,” a fully-functional, technologically-advanced dog grooming salon on wheels. It became a sensation in Australia where it quickly grew to 200 franchises and became the largest franchise of its kind in the world with annual revenue of $10 million.
The brand is now expanding in the United States and in addition to its grooming services it’s also washing and saving thousands of shelter and rescue dogs as part of its Bathe to Save initiative. HydroDog’s goal is to help end euthanasia by washing and rescuing one dog at a time
With more than 3.3 million dogs in shelters across the country, HydroDog is committed to raising awareness for animal rescue and adoption. HydroDog’s goal is to help end euthanasia by washing and rescuing one dog at a time. Every franchisee hosts Bathe to Save events in coordination with his or her local shelter, where they will wash dogs that have been left behind in an effort to give them a better chance at finding their forever home.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, HydroDog operators saw their business spike. The brand was identified as an ‘essential business’ allowed to continue to operate and giving people stuck at home a safe and easy option to have their pets groomed.
“It is just one more way that proves that HydroDog is a secure investment that provides a secure business opportunity for entrepreneurs looking to build their own futures,” said Amos.
Amos touts the brand’s benefits including low start-up costs, financial independence, a supportive franchise community, ability to control your own schedule, and a quick return on investment.
The mobile franchise is looking for qualified franchisees that have business savvy, a love of dogs, a passion for rescue and adoption, and an eagerness to drive the concept around town in its signature big blue dog van. Franchisees undergo a six-week training program, receive superior support regionally and from the corporate office, enjoy a hands-on relationship with founder Anthony Amos, as well as strategic marketing and business development programs.
“Somebody's always got your back. Somebody's always looking out for you,” said Suzi Balk, Master Franchisee in North Carolina. “They want me to be successful. They want me to succeed in this business as much as I want to succeed in the business. It's very empowering to be around people that are like-minded and have that entrepreneurial spirit.”
