When we opened our first Bubbly Paws location in 2011, we wanted
to create a new idea for the way grooming salons worked and looked.
We put in long hours, drank lots of coffee, and designed the
ultimate pet grooming destination. Before we knew it our groomers
were booked out several weeks and customers were lining up to use
our self-service tubs.
In the following years, we opened 3 additional locations in the
Minneapolis/Saint Paul area. Since then we've received messages
from people around the country wanting to know how to create a dog
wash like ours. A random fact is that we even consulted a dog spa
in Toulouse, France! Then in 2020 we decided to franchise and would
love to talk with you about taking the next step to Bubbly Paws
We've revolutionized the self-service bath customer experience. We
provide everything customers need to make their pup look, smell and
feel great! We recently have been testing out our "Scrub Club"
which has unlimited baths for a low monthly cost.
The full service bath is designed for dogs that don't need a full
groom, but customers want the Bubbly Paws team to do all the work.
This is also a very popular option with grooming clients in between
The Bubbly Paws groomers go the extra mile to make all the dogs
look and feel great. We design the stores to provide a low stress
grooming setting. We train the groomers to communicate what is best
for the dog and what we can accomplish. At pick up, we also provide
a report card to help communicate how the dog did.
