The Woofie's Advantage in a Growing Market

Woofie’s is an ideal option for low-cost mobile franchises in the booming pet industry. There are several service lines: mobile pet grooming, dog walking, and even our bed and biscuit overnight pet care. This means you have multiple revenue streams to grow your profitability and succeed through seasonal fluctuations.

The Woofie’s management team is proud to provide franchisees with extensive training and support throughout their journey with our brand. From buying your first franchise to ongoing marketing, our team is always here for you!

The industry outlook for mobile pet services is positive. U.S. pet industry revenue surpassed $123.6bn in 2021 and grew to be worth $103.6bn nationally in 2023. The industry has a strong annual growth trajectory of approximately 8% through 2030. Quality pet care isn’t considered optional to pet owners: they need reliable services for their beloved pets when they’re home, away, working long hours, or traveling. As pet ownership increases, the demand for Woofie’s services rises too.
