The Ark Pet Spa & Hotel Franchise Overview

About The Ark Pet Spa & Hotel

Americans have a deep and abiding relationship with their pets. They love them, make them cherished family members, spend billions of dollars a year on their care and want the best for their four-legged children. The Ark Pet Spa & hotel was created to meet this strong and growing market niche. The Ark offers a combination of high demand pet services, including boarding, daycare, grooming, and a small but well chosen selection of retail products. These service lines help to reinforce each other, allowing us to offer to our busy human guests the convenience of only having to make one stop for their pets needs while providing top tier services and products for their pets. Having taken the past dozen years to refine our concept and to open additional locations, always with the goal of franchising in mind, we at The Ark are now ready to launch our franchise program. Now you can be part of this fun concept and secure your future doing something you love!

Franchise History

The Ark was founded by Jay Floyd in 2006. Jay and his family were in search of a pet sitter or boarding facility in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Unfortunately, in 2005 there were no strong options. While there were veterinarians and kennels none gave them the safe, fun, and loving feeling they wanted for their beloved fur baby. They were not alone, and they knew it, so in 2006 Jay opened the very first Ark Pet Spa & Hotel in Chattanooga’s North Shore. Jay wanted something better and knew he could create it with a strong crew around him. The Ark would be different from the competition; The Ark would provide hospitality to pets of all kinds. Like The Ark’s name and logo imply, it would be an all inclusive pet hotel and spa. Not only would The Ark provide a loving, safe, and fun environment for dogs, but it would also provide those things to all pets from cats and birds, to hamsters and even pet lizards. While the majority of the expected business was from dogs Jay was prepared; and from the start created dedicated square footage to board animals of all. Jay also knew that simply building an Ark would not do, he needed a strong crew to keep the business afloat. The goal was always to find honest, pet lovers to crew The Ark, but not everyone knew how to properly care for pets in a safe and fun manner, that is why he sought guidance from experts in the field. The knowledge gained from the experts trickled down to every member of the crew. To this day crew training is a key to The Ark’s success. Without a strong, loving, and well-trained crew The Ark would surely fail. They wanted to make sure that every day and every year The Ark would move forward and improve it’s staff, facilities, and systems.
