About the Business
This dog grooming and daycare/boarding business started 2009 primarily as a dog grooming business – the first in its area -- and in 2015 expanded its services to include boarding and daycare. The company has done very little advertising over the years, as business has grown mainly through customer referrals.
The company recently remodeled its grooming facility and began a booth rental program which guarantees a steady income to the salon and mitigates tax liability. There are 11 grooming booths available to rent at a cost of $300 per booth per week. There are currently 1 full- time employee and 8 part-time employees, and they expect to have 7 full-time groomers who are/will be either contract employees or booth renters. Most are currently in the groomer training program, which they will complete in mid-June 2018.
Since quality staffing is a challenge in the industry, the company runs its own groomer training program and has also has also found success in being able to hire high school students for after school and weekend hours.
The company started an innovative bath program several years ago which has evolved into a discount punch-pass bath program – it proved popular enough to be extended to include a discount punch-pass programs for boarding and daycare.
The company is in the process of completing a remodel/expansion of the grooming area and installing new kennels. There is 24-hour staff to supervise and care for the dogs in separate small dog and large dog areas, as well as several kennels for feeding purposes and separation if needed. There is also an on-call vet.
The current owners believe that, with the proper management and enthusiasm, the future business outlook for is one of continued growth and success. Dogs are a big industry and a secure one -- the pet industry was one of the few industries to survive the recession. It was during that time the company started with one walk-in customer and a half-year income of around $40,000. In nine years, the company grew to have a 4,000-plus customer base and an annual income (in 2017) of just under $370,000, and continues to add new customers on a regular basis.
