PetWellClinic Spurs Growth to Meet the Surge in Demand

PetWellClinic Spurs Growth to Meet the Surge in Demand

PetWellClinic is set to soar to new heights as a proven brand primed for a bold future in franchising.

With 16 clinics open and over 130 units in development, PetWellClinic continues to shine as one of the nation's fastest-growing pet wellness brands that's all about convenience. The first-of-its-kind on-demand veterinary concept, founded by veterinarian and software engineer Dr. Sam Meisler, DVM, serves up a modern industry take with high-quality, affordable wellness, preventative, and sick care for pets.

"We saw a need to make pet care more accessible for walk-ins," Dr. Meisler says. "Our business model can also save on costs through innovation. Even the footprint can help in this area. We can lower the cost, but not lower what we offer so it is more accessible to the public."

A natural-born problem solver, Dr. Meisler knows a winning idea when he hears one. PetWellClinic, launched in 2010, was inspired by his wife's suggestion after she read a New York Times article on the rise of retail walk-in community healthcare clinics by companies like Walgreens and CVS.

"My wife turned to me and asked, 'Why couldn't we do that for veterinary care?'" Dr. Meisler recalls.

Building on the success of PetWellClinic's corporate location, the Knoxville, Tennessee-based brand embraced franchising in 2020, partnering with franchise development pros Oakscale to fuel growth.

Entrepreneurs and seasoned multi-unit franchise owners alike are flocking to the brand.   Detroit natives Jake Atchoo and Blake George, owners of three Goldfish Swim Schools, recently inked a 10-unit deal to expand PetWellClinic in the greater Detroit area.

"PetWellClinic offers a career option for those in the veterinary field who are seeking more work-life balance with normal operating hours and less burnout," George says. "In providing services that can otherwise backlog traditional veterinary clinics, PetWellClinic is the perfect complement to other vets in the area, helping prevent pet owners from having to sit through an hours-long wait at a walk-in clinic or wait weeks to schedule an appointment."

Clinics are designed to be open and transparent, allowing clients to view everything happening from the front of the clinic to the back as dogs and cats receive essential services such as general check-ups, vaccines, and treatments for minor ailments and chronic conditions. The proprietary veterinary software program, developed by Dr. Sam Meisler, provides operators with seamless clinic processes and maximized efficiencies.

Revving up to expand as a national brand, PetWellClinic remains focused on the values of openness, service, kindness, community, and growth.

"We've been doing this for 12 years now, and our systems are in place," Dr. Meisler says. "We don't always want to recreate the wheel, but we won't necessarily do something just because that's how it's done in franchising. We also want to remain humble because there are always things to learn."
