Building on over 30 successful years, Pet Valu offers you a value-added franchise opportunity with a loyal customer base, an established brand, and a growing market.
The PET VALU franchise system requires the personal involvement of the franchisee in the day to day operation of the store. While it is possible to have a non-active financial partner, the Operator of the franchise must own a minimum of 25% of the voting shares of the franchisee corporation.
The total investment required will vary depending on many factors, including the size of the store, necessary leasehold improvements and equipment requirements, sales levels and inventory requirements.
A franchisee must live within one hour's driving time of the franchise outlet. The PET VALU system is the product of extensive research, investigation and fine-tuning during a period of more than 20 years. The franchisee obtains the benefits of this experience, but must be prepared to operate within the guidelines of the system in order to preserve uniformity of operation, combined purchasing strength and the other economies of a cohesive retail chain.
