There are few industries that have had the sustained and booming growth like the pet industry. Annually, pet parents spend billions on their beloved animals. A great way to cash in on this booming industry is to invest in a pet grooming franchise. If this interests you, look no further than the Sitter4Paws. The pet sitting business was co-founded by Andres De Oliveira and Alexandra Alvarez in 2014. Since franchising in 2018, Sitter4Paws has expanded to several locations across the county. As a franchisee with Sitter4Paws, you enjoy great flexibility with a home based business, which means lower overhead and startup costs. Not only do you get to be your own boss, but you you get to care for animals. Being an animal love is a must if you want to be a franchisee with Sitter4Paws. When someone is looking for your services, customers will be emailed to establish a time to meet for a consultation. During the consultation, you will meet with pet parents to find out the animal's routine and necessary services. Two or more sitters will be assigned to the pet during designated days.
You will also get great support and training during your time with the franchise. In terms of support and training, you can expect a training program that lasts for six days at Sitter4Paws' Los Angeles office. The training consists of 32 hours of classroom where you’ll learn everything, as well as 16 hours of field training. When the program is done, you’ll get an additional 16 hours of virtual training from your location. During this time, you will learn about marketing, operations and sales strategies.
