Franchise Interviews Meets with the FlipFlop Dogs Franchise
|Franchise Interviews meets with the FlipFlop Dogs franchise
Over the last month, Franchise Interviews has focused on the pet industry. Here's why:
According to the June
3, 2011 issue of USA TODAY, "There are now more households with dogs (43 million) than children."
Pet Products Association's 2013-2014 National Pet Owners Survey reveals:
68% of U.S. households own a pet, equaling to 82.5 million households.
56.7 million households own a dog. Largest
number of households, in the pet category, with the next closest being over 11 million less.
83.5 million is the total
number of dogs owned in the U.S.
Total U.S. pet industry expenditures have continued to grow since 1994 and are expected
to reach $55.53 billion in 2013.
47% of owners consider their pets full-fledged family members.
Basic dog boarding/kenneling
annual expenses are $327, on average
$4.54 billion is expected to be spent on pet grooming/boarding this year, up $380
million from last year.
The pet care industry continues to grow due to Americans love for
their dogs, and always demanding top care for their loved one. Pet franchising, specifically, is strengthening and developing
as more consumers are choosing to have a pet in their household. Consumers choose to spend more on their furry best friends
and the trend is only continuing to mature.
We are meeting with Taffy Miltz, Co-Founder
and President of the FlipFlop Dogs franchise opportunity.
