Los Angeles, CA – Zoom Room, the revolutionary indoor dog training gym, is elated to share the news of its record-setting 10-unit franchise agreement with Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Anthony Polazzi, as featured in Pet Age on June 7, 2023. This groundbreaking agreement marks the largest multi-unit deal since the inception of Zoom Room in 2009, and it sets the stage for monumental growth within the dog training industry.

Reinforcing Dominance in a Growing Market

As per the feature in Pet Age, the global pet services market is burgeoning and was valued at $24.92 billion in 2022. Despite the inflation, Americans continue to invest in pet care. A striking 68 percent of individuals increased their spending on pet care in early 2023, as reported by the US Pet Market Outlook Report. Zoom Room has uniquely positioned itself in this lucrative market and is projected to exceed 200 units within the next year.

Anthony Polazzi: A Pivotal Player for Expansion

Anthony Polazzi, the Director and CFO of Zoom Room, has been instrumental in facilitating this unprecedented expansion. Besides his role at Zoom Room, Polazzi is the founder and president of AP Franchised Concepts (APFC), an investment firm specializing in the growth of multi-unit franchisees. APFC made a strategic investment in Zoom Room in 2017 and Polazzi’s in-depth understanding of Zoom Room’s business model has been central to guiding the organization to new heights. His expertise in business acquisitions and advisory, amassed over 20 years, will be invaluable in developing the initial locations in the burgeoning South Florida market.

In the words of Polazzi, “Dog training where pet parents are actively engaged during the sessions is not as well-known in the pet services industry as daycare or grooming, yet the economics of the Zoom Room business model are more attractive and the opportunity for growth is much greater.”

This agreement cements Polazzi’s commitment and belief in the efficacy of Zoom Room’s business model, while highlighting the lucrative opportunities it offers to franchisees seeking long-term gains. Polazzi’s involvement is not only a vote of confidence but also an invitation to others to become a part of Zoom Room’s burgeoning network.

Building on a Unique Business Model

Zoom Room has carved out a niche within the pet services market by pioneering an innovative style of dog training. This approach emphasizes socialization, positive reinforcement, and interactive learning to strengthen the bond between dogs and their human companions. Over the recent years, Zoom Room has more than tripled its presence across the U.S., expanding from eight states in 2020 to a staggering 30 states.

Mark Van Wye, CEO of Zoom Room, had this to say about the partnership with Polazzi: “Anthony and I have cultivated a remarkable partnership, diligently working to expand Zoom Room over the past six years. Witnessing Anthony’s journey come full circle, now emerging as the foremost multi-unit franchisee, is truly exhilarating.”

The Future is Bright

As Zoom Room closes 2022 with nearly eight times as many multi-unit developers as in 2020, this latest deal with Anthony Polazzi heralds an era of prosperity and success for the company. With its unique and rapidly growing concept, Zoom Room is the perfect opportunity for those looking to invest in a franchise that is not just profitable, but also contributes positively to the community.
