LOCATION SEARCH / SITE EVALUATION / LEASE NEGOTIATION ASSISTANCE
Location continues to be a critical key to success, but so are the terms of the lease and the layout of the building. Our national real estate team has been involved in site selection and lease negotiations for many of the largest retailers in the USA and will help you find the perfect location for your The Dog Stop® business. We are well equipped to assist you in negotiating the business terms of a lease, but still advise you to hire an experienced attorney to deal with legal wording.
EXTENSIVE TRAINING IN EVERY ASPECT OF ALL OPERATIONS
We have comprehensive training manuals that are designed to assist you in every aspect of the business, including but not limited to: site selection and lease negotiations, design and construction, pre-opening procedures, ongoing operations, employee administration, financial administration, marketing and the pet care management software (PCMS) that will track all activities of each dog that becomes a customer.
GRAND OPENING AND ONGOING VISITATION
We will be there to guide you through your opening week and then commit to a visitation schedule to offer assistance and to make sure you are operating as smoothly as possible. Of course, we will always be available by phone and email for day to day routine questions and suggestions.
Now, you can become a part of this booming pet care industry by owning a The Dog Stop® franchise. Previous pet or dog service experience is NOT required. Our dedicated team will train you and be there to support you on an ongoing basis. Help is never more than a phone call or email away.
DESIGN, CONSTRUCTION AND EQUIPMENT
We provide you with prototype layouts of your entire facility, from the retail and client reception area to doggie play areas, grooming rooms, bathing rooms and outside play yards.
We have established relationships with the best suppliers of kennels, fencing, flooring, pet care management software (PCMS), and other fixtures/equipment/supplies you will need for your store. We not only help streamline that aspect of the business, but also help you save money in the process.
