Scenthound Franchise Cost and Requirements for 2022

Background

As the nation's first wellness-focused membership-model grooming franchise, Scenthound is pioneering a new frontier of dog care within the booming $72M U.S. pet industry.

Scenthound has unprecedented market potential because it serves an historically underserved market: the 80% of dogs that don't need stylized haircuts. That said, our services are designed to improve the health and longevity of ALL dogs through a routine care schedule in five core areas of maintenance: Skin, Coat, Ears, Nails and Teeth.

The low cost but high profit membership-based recurring revenue model is amplified with "as-needed" add on services --- nail grinding, barber-style haircuts, facial scrubs, etc. --- and products to maintain health between visits.
