Positioned to Capture the Pet Market

We like to think of Woof Gang as a Goldilocks opportunity: we’re not an independent store or a big box, but we fit perfectly in the wide open space between small, independently owned groomers and bigger national brands. At Woof Gang, we combine the best of both worlds! Our brand is strong and trusted nationwide, but our locally owned and operated stores have a neighborhood feel that customers love. Since we have the resources of a national brand, we’re able to offer high-end products and services that give our stores a boutique atmosphere. Whenever customers walk through our doors, they know that they’ll be greeted with a friendly smile and their pet will be treated to a fun, indulgent spa day. Our stores are a celebration of pets, and we’re here to give our furry friends the good life. Customers notice the difference immediately.

Dual-concept business model

With pet parents nationwide taking more of an interest than ever in their furry friend’s life, there’s never been a better time to become a part of the pet grooming industry! Woof Gang offers a unique dual-concept business model that incorporates both high-end retail and grooming. In fact, 66% of the business we do is grooming, and we groom over one million pets per year.

Is the pet grooming industry right for me?

When you’re thinking about opening your own business, it’s natural to wonder which industry is the best fit for your goals and skills. If you’re entering the pet industry with no prior experience, not to worry! Many of our owners are new to pet grooming and retail, and that won’t stop you from building a thriving business. As long as you’re passionate about pets, driven, and service-oriented, you have what it takes to succeed as a Woof Gang Bakery owner. We’ll teach you everything you need to know about both the industry and our brand during your training program. While people from all walks of life can become a successful Woof Gang franchisee, those who have backgrounds in business management, retail, hair salons, and anything related to pets (including vet care) will have a natural advantage.
