Dogdrop Franchise Cost and Requirements for 2024


In today's world, pets are family. Americans spend billions on their pets every year. An emerging brand to consider is Dropdog. The California-based on-demand dog daycare was established by Shaina and Greer, who had the idea of transforming dog daycare from the ground up. At Dropdog locations, dogs are provided a place to exercise, learn, and socialize under well-trained supervision, so they can become happier and healthier. Franchise owners benefit from end-to-end technology, recurring revenue, and streamlined operations. Additionally, the brand's dog daycares are 2,400 to 3,000 square feet without overnight boarding. This allows for locations to be located in more central, highly-trafficked areas. The locations are also intentionally designed to look and feel better than other daycares. Ideal candidates are dedicated to customer experience, a proven team leader, community centric, and strong operator. In terms of the initial investment, it ranges between $302,000 - $568,000, which includes a $50,000 franchise fee. Royalty fees are 7% of sales. The franchisor will be there for you from the beginning.
You will be provided with site selection, lease negotiations, build-out, team training, and marketing guidance. Since its inception, Dogdrop has expanded to locations in California and Colorado. The brand is women and LGBTQIA+ led and fits the lifestyle of pet parents that want flexibility and convenience. Dogdrop’s proprietary software powers its stores to achieve operational efficiency and provides a better member experience. The flexibility of their payment options and encouragement of short, “quick stop” stays increases the accessibility of their services and opens up the market to users who don’t necessarily need all-day dog care.
