This will bring affordable and convenient pet grooming services to pet owners throughout both of these regions.
The announcement comes as Aussie Pet Mobile plans to expand, and have more than 40 mobile pet grooming franchise units, all operating across the British Columbia and Alberta regions by the end of 2012. Overall, Aussie Pet Mobile plans over the next five years, to have more that 300 units operating throughout Canada.
“It is an exciting time to be a part of the Aussie Pet Mobile franchise system and we look forward to increasing our presence throughout regions of Canada to meet the demand for high quality, mobile pet grooming services,” explains Richard Avis, who is the president and CEO of Aussie Pet Mobile, Canada. “Aussie Pet Mobile offers a great opportunity for potential investors to capitalise on the billion dollar pet industry while providing a service that keeps pets healthy, clean and cute.”
A scalable business which requires no commitment to real estate or retail shop leases, the Aussie Pet Mobile franchise fee starts at $29,000 and requires a minimum of $73,000 in capital to run a single franchise unit. There is also the option of multi-unit option available, for franchise investors who are interested in purchasing several vans within an exclusive territory, which would be defined by postal code, as each van grows toward its monthly “capacity”.
The mobile pet grooming service is convenient and offers one-on-one attention within a relaxing atmosphere, something not typically found in store front grooming locations. The Aussie Pet Mobile is a custom designed Mercedes Benz van, which has fully self contained facilities such as; air conditioning, heat, electricity and water, with no dependence on outside electrical or water hook-ups. This makes the unique service easy for apartment or condo residents as well as homeowners. The van’s ramp and spacious interior helps the pets to manoeuvre easily and enhance the groomers’ ability to ensure all the pets’ needs are met. The company is also a keen user of eco friendly products, which turns the grey water into an environmentally friendly composition, which can be dispersed through natural resources.
The company’s certified and trained groomers are able to pamper pets using an exclusive 15-step spa treatment, which includes applying professional customized shampoo and using patented custom built and trademarked hydro-bath, massage, towel and blow dry, brushing, and nail clipping, just to name a few.
