Fifteen years after setting up the innovative pet sitting, dog walking, and mobile pet spa company in Ashburn, Woofie’s is expanding with plans to license at least five franchisee-owned locations this year.
The owners expect the company’s specialized approach to serving the needs of pet owners to be in demand in other markets.
“It’s about providing a highly-personalized pet care service to clients while emphasizing a relationship built on convenience, trust and peace of mind. We strive to ensure that every customer experience is an exceptional one, which is why we’ve focused on building a model that positions our franchisees for success,” stated Co-founder and co-ownerAmy Reed.
Woofie’s offers personalized pet sitting and dog walking services that includes consultations with a member of the management team, in-home overnight care and bed and biscuit overnight care. Their mobile pet spa provides one-on-one, cage-free grooming services such as: breed-specific haircuts, nail trims, hydrosurge baths and specialized de-matting and de-shedding treatments.
“As pet owners ourselves, Amy and I saw a need for professional pet care services in our local market,” stated co-founder and co-owner Leslie Barron. “Compared to other app-based services, Woofie’s offers unparalleled customer service and individualized focus for each pet in our care.”
Including a franchise fee of $37,500, the initial investment necessary to open a single location ranges between $102,000 and $172,000. Each Woofie’s franchise will employ a team of pet sitters, dog walkers, mobile groomers and back-office administrators.
