Scenthound Continues Expansion in South Florida
Scenthound, a dog grooming and wellness franchise, is set to open three locations in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.
Scenthound, a dog grooming franchise specializing in preventative care and wellness, is opening three locations in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. The Jupiter, Fla.-based company already has four locations open and operating in Florida, which include: Boynton Beach, Jupiter, Wellington and West Palm Beach.
The Palm Beach Gardens locations will be owned and operated by South Florida local, Christina McGinnis. McGinnis worked as corporate buyer for more than 15 years, but always knew she wanted to own her own business, officials said. Having grown up with dogs and being an animal lover herself, she knew Scenthound was the perfect fit for herself and the Palm Beach Gardens community, officials added.
“I am thrilled to be opening my own Scenthound locations,” McGinnis said. “I am looking forward to introducing the concept to the community and hope to help pet parents create a closer relationship with their dogs. Animals provide such a comfort to us, and having a clean and healthy dog is so important.”
Scenthound focuses on the five core areas of maintenance: skin, coat, ears, nails and teeth, officials noted. The membership program allows for dog owners to have “the peace of mind” that their pets are cared for on a routine basis, officials said.
“As we expand our presence nationally, it’s critical that we find the correct partners to join our Scenthound family,” said Tim Vogel, CEO of Scenthound, which was founded in 2015 and began franchising in 2019. “We are confident that Christina embodies our values and sees this not only as a great business opportunity, but the chance to strengthen the relationship between dogs and their parents.”
Scenthound officials said that they have plans to open up 20 new locations in 2020 as part of their Southeastern expansion.
