Dogtopia Closes Q1 On Upswing
Dogtopia, a dog daycare, boarding, training and spa franchise, signed 40 franchise agreements in Q1 and is on track to open more than 100 stores this year, according to the company.
Dogtopia recently sold all territories in the brand’s home state of Arizona by inking a 12-unit area developer deal with local entrepreneurs Joe and Kelly Sacari. Dogtopia also signed a six-unit deal in Edmonton, Canada, and is working on several international deals outside of North America. To augment the company’s aggressive growth plans and to further develop its presence domestically and internationally, Dogtopia plans to exhibit at the 2016 International Franchise Expo June 16-18 at The Javits Center in New York, the company stated.
“Since we began reinventing our brand last June, we have experienced exponential growth and positive feedback from our franchisees and pet parents alike,” said Alex Samios, vice president of franchise development for Dogtopia. “Our numbers speak for themselves—the brand’s total comp sales have increased by 18 percent from last year and are on track to surpass that this year. We’re eager to exhibit at IFE to meet with prospective franchisees interested in participating in our aggressive growth.”
Beyond the recent signed franchise agreements, Dogtopia’s plans for expansion include Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, New York City, San Antonio, San Francisco and Seattle.
