Award Winning Dog Daycare, Spa and Boarding Franchise Hosts Grand Opening Event in Coquitlam
VANCOUVER, BC (November 20, 2014) – Dogtopia, an award winning North American dog daycare and recipient of Inc. 500/5000 List of America’s Fastest Growing Companies and Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500, announced today the opening of its first Canadian franchise, located in Coquitlam, BC. The expansion forms part of Dogtopia’s aggressive growth strategy to open 40 more locations across Canada in the next 7-8 years.
Dogtopia’s expansion into Canada comes as a response to strong year-over-year growth of the non-medical pet services industry. According to the Canadian Pet Market Outlook 2014 Report, 57 percent of Canadian households currently own a pet, equating to roughly 7.5 million households. Canadian pet spending in 2013 reached up to $6.6 billion, a figure that has been rising steadily and is expected to reach as much as $8.3 billion per year by 2018.
Leading Dogtopia’s move to Canada is franchise industry expert and Dogtopia Chairman, Peter Thomas, who previously built the Century 21 franchise system in Canada. Peter quickly recognized that Canadians are spending more than ever on their pets, yet there was a lack of daycare options with a standardized set of quality and safety regulations put in place. Peter found the solution in Amy Nichols, Founder and CEO of Dogtopia, who had more than 20 successful locations throughout the US and was positioned well to expand and franchise in Canada.
Speaking about Dogtopia’s growth plans in Canada, Amy said, “The continued growth in the Canadian pet-services industry provides us with a tremendous opportunity to break into a new market, increase our brand recognition, and maintain our competitive edge in this category. With Canadians spending more than ever on their pets, we want to be able to offer them a safe and fun environment for their four-legged friends from a name they can trust.”
