Our efficient business model allows our franchise partners to be successful in a variety of different markets types.
Pet Supplies “Plus” opened their first store in Michigan in 1988. We pioneered the concept of bringing supermarket style retailing to the pet supply industry. As we have continued to grow over the last 20 years, we have remained true to our original concept: To create clean, attractive stores that offer pet owners great values and the best quality and assortment, all in a fun place to shop. Every year, more than 1.6 million dogs, cats and other pets visit Pet Supplies “Plus” with their owners.
Our Stores– The average PSP store is 8,000 to 10,000 square feet… about half the size of our “big box” competitors. Our stores are bright, clean, well lit, and have uncluttered aisles that are easy to shop. Although our stores are smaller, we carry the same extensive item selection as the warehouse style superstores.
Our efficient third party distribution system with twice per week delivery provides “just in time” order availability on most items.
Our smaller stores sizes significantly reduce your start-up costs, inventory, occupancy and other operating costs, which in turn lowers the franchisees profit threshold. Most of our stores are located in shopping centers with other high-traffic, convenience oriented retailers. Due to our smaller stores sizes and efficient business model, we are able to enter smaller markets that may have little or no competition, but our stores compete effectively in major metro areas, as well.
Buying Power– Although each store is independently owned, our franchise partners benefit from the buying power of over 230 stores, which assures our owners the best cost of goods available. We have developed solid relationships with the leading manufacturers in the pet industry, so our franchise partners can offer their customers fantastic values on all of their pet supply needs.
Support Services- Pet Supplies “Plus” stands behind its franchise partners with comprehensive support programs, including real estate and site selection assistance, store design and layout, operational support, store manager and associate training, buying and merchandising, advertising, POS hosting, and publicity.
Our Franchisees– Our store owners come from all walks of life… doctors, lawyers, grocers, retired corporate executives, entrepreneurs looking for an opportunity to be their own boss in a growing business with a well respected company. Our proven business model and excellent training programs provide them with all the tools they need to be successful operators.
