Have you always dreamed of running your own pet-related business but you simply didn’t know where to start or how to start? Are you afraid that you will sink a lot of money into your fledgling business only to ultimately fail? We at Pet Sitters Ireland, especially now that we’ve begun franchising our wildly successful pet sitting business, get many of questions about the benefits of starting a pet franchise.

Ultimately, we could fill pages about the many benefits and opportunities that purchasing a pet franchise offers but we’ll start with the top five benefits of buying a pet franchise:

Indulge in your passion.

Running a business, whether you start it from scratch or buy a franchise, will require a lot of time and sacrifice on your part. The last thing you want is to choose a franchise that mildly interests or doesn’t interest you at all. If you love pets and care about their wellbeing then a pet franchise may just be for you.

Pet Sitting Franchise

Join an ever-growing industry.

Pick one word to describe the pet industry. Which word would you choose? Booming! The pet sitting industry is an ever-growing industry both in Ireland, in the United States, and around the world. More and more people have added pets to their family and many of those people treat their pets as members of their families.

In Ireland alone, 20 percent of all people have a dog while 14 percent have a cat.

A multi-million dollar industry in Ireland, the pet industry in the United States is expected to bring in an estimated $60.59 billion in 2015, up from the $58.04 billion the industry brought in in 2014.

Invest in an already-proven brand.
Businesses offer franchise opportunities because they have built a proven brand and have developed a wide-reaching customer base. Let’s use Pet Sitters Ireland as an example. We started our national pet sitting service because of our love of and experience with pets. Over the past years, we have built our pet sitting business from the ground up.

We have become brand recognized in Ireland. We have developed a strong marketing plan. As a result, we are selling franchises to help prospective pet-care business owners fulfill their dream of starting their own pet sitting business.

Receive ample support.

Your franchisee won’t disappear once you purchase your franchise. On the contrary. A strong franchisor provides ongoing support for their franchisees, offering ongoing training, marketing advice, and so on. If you have questions, you should be able to easily and quickly contact the franchisor for assistance.

Enjoy unlimited income potential.

How much your pet franchise makes annually largely depends upon how much you are willing to put into it. Of course, there are other factors, such as the proximity of the nearest franchise, that will determine your franchise’s success. But, if you work hard, take advantage of the support from the franchisor, and use your creativity, you really will enjoy unlimited income potential.
