The Ark Pet Spa & Hotel is now franchising and seeking business minded pet lovers in the Southeast to join the franchise crew! After twelve years of serving Chattanooga and Atlanta pet owners, The Ark’s franchise crew will now be attracting and training pet loving, business minded individuals who would like to open up their own pet hotel and take a bite out of the $70 billion pet industry. Purchasing an Ark franchise will give a franchise owner the ability to be in an exciting, rewarding, and booming industry!
Based in Chattanooga, Tennessee, The Ark Pet Spa & Hotel has provided a fun, safe, and loving environment for thousands of dogs, cats, and other pets while their parents were away since their opening in 2006. The Ark offers pet boarding, doggy daycare, pet grooming, dog training, and even boasts an impressive pet bakery & market called Slobberbones. The Ark has accumulated several awards over the years, most recently though, The Ark was awarded The Chattanooga Times Free Press, Best of The Best “Pet Groomers” for the 6th year in a row. Other awards include Best of Kudzu Atlanta for “Pet Boarding and Daycare”, and The Ark is currently rated A+ by the BBB.
The Ark has expanded over the last twelve years and now includes three Chattanooga locations, and one in Doraville, GA, a suburb of Atlanta, bringing the total number of locations to four. With a proven model, a strong brand, a growing industry, and a vision for expansion, The Ark took the steps to develop a competitive franchise package and will now be offering it to anyone interested in the Southeastern United States. The Ark’s franchise crew worked with National Franchise Associates (NFA) out of the Atlanta area to create their franchise documents and manuals. One of NFA’s most notable franchise clients was Zaxby’s.
The Ark developed a franchise crew to help support all of the existing corporate owned franchise units and any future franchise locations. The Ark’s franchise crew includes Jay Floyd, the founder and CEO, Adam Harbin, the Vice President of Development, Sarah Speer, the Director of Operations, Kate Wells, the Marketing Manager, and Brittany Carden, the Franchise Operations Trainer.
The Ark will be attractive to business minded, pet lovers that want to capitalize on the growth of the $70 billion pet care industry. According to the American Pet Products Association (APPA), the industry has seen an average annual growth of 7%. This can be attributed to the fact that nearly 68% of American households now own a pet. The APPA estimates there to be over 60 million households that own a dog and 47 million households that own a cat in the US. Not to mention, most pet owners consider their pet to be part of the family and are willing to spend more than ever to keep them happy and healthy.
The Ark’s franchising crew will guide future, pet loving franchise owners every step of the way. The Ark’s crew will provide assistance with things like site selection, facility design, construction, crew and owner training, management, accounting, and marketing. Once the franchise owner is up and running, The Ark crew will provide ongoing assistance and system wide support. Many franchisors like to say franchise owners will “be in business for yourself, but not by yourself”.
