LOS ANGELES, CA, Dec. 13, 2022 – The pet industry is booming as we move into the new year, and Mark Van Wye, the CEO of Zoom Room Dog Training, is sharing his insights with FranchiseWire on the pet trends and shifts within the pet care industry. Pet franchises offer exceptional investment opportunities due to their recession-resistant spending, increased demand, and unique price elasticity. These franchises span several distinct verticals, including dog training providers, daycare, and grooming services.
Van Wye believes that dog training will shift to in-person group classes that emphasize socialization and a full embrace of positive reinforcement methodology. He also believes that dog grooming will shift to subscription services, that pet food will innovate with novel proteins and the inclusion of prebiotics and probiotics, and that pet-friendly legislation will become omnipresent in a broad range of municipalities.
Van Wye notes that “the pet industry is evolving to meet the needs of modern pet owners, resulting in a shift towards more specialized and convenient services.” He adds that “pet franchises present an incredible opportunity for entrepreneurs looking to invest in a business model with proven success and unparalleled support.”
The appeal of a pet franchise lies in its ability to provide a recession-resistant service with increased demand and unique price elasticity. According to Van Wye, “the pet industry is growing rapidly, and those who enter now can benefit from the growth potential of this sector.” He adds that “pet owners are increasingly looking for specialized services such as dog training classes, daycare facilities, and grooming services that are tailored to their needs.”
Van Wye believes that the future of the pet industry lies in its ability to provide specialized services that meet the needs of modern pet owners. He states that “pet owners are increasingly looking for convenience when it comes to their pets’ care, which is why subscription-based grooming services are becoming more popular.” He also notes that “pet food is innovating with novel proteins and prebiotics/probiotics being included in formulations to provide better nutrition for pets.”
In addition to these changes within the industry itself, Van Wye believes that “pet-friendly legislation will become omnipresent in a broad range of municipalities as more people recognize the importance of providing safe spaces for pets.” He adds that “these changes will create even more opportunities for entrepreneurs looking to invest in a pet franchise as they will be able to capitalize on these trends while providing quality care for their customers’ pets.”
As we move into 2023, it is clear that the pet industry is continuing to evolve and grow at an unprecedented rate. With this growth comes an opportunity for entrepreneurs to invest in a franchise model with proven success and unparalleled support. By understanding the current trends within the industry such as subscription-based grooming services, novel proteins in pet food formulations, and increasing pet-friendly legislation, entrepreneurs can capitalize on these changes while providing quality care for their customers’ pets.
Anthony Polazzi, CFO of Zoom Room, adds: “The pet care industry has seen impressive growth in recent years and we expect this trend to continue well into the future. The key is to stay ahead of the curve by investing in customer experience, technology, and advanced services.”
Stephanie Knepp, VP of Operations of Zoom Room, affirms that: “As pet owners become more invested in their animals’ health and well-being, they’re willing to pay for services such as daycare and training that offer convenience and peace of mind. We’re seeing a major shift towards modernizing the pet care industry and we’re excited to be part of this transformation.”
Finally, Catherine Uhlinger, Director of Development for Zoom Room said: “We see tremendous potential for franchise partners in the pet care sector. The unique combination of recession-resistance spending, increased demand and unique price elasticity make pet franchising a very interesting investment opportunity.”
