Petland - Grow a Business in a Growing Category

StoreThe pet industry continues to grow in spite of a challenging economy. U.S. industry expenditures grew from $17 billion in 1994 to $45 billion in 2009*. According to the 2009/2010 National Pet Owners Survey, 62% of U.S households own one or more pets. This equates to 71.4 million homes! Sales are growing! Ownership is growing! Consumer awareness of what pets need to thrive is growing!

The two largest pet supply chains, Petsmart and Petco (over 1800 company owned stores; they do not offer franchises) combined achieve only a 17% market share. This demonstrates the gap in the market place and the unique opportunity for Petland franchisees.
