Ben's Barketplace, Inc. | International Franchise Association
Ben's Barketplace Franchise Ownership


The Ben’s Barketplace Concept – More than just a pet supply store, Ben’s Barketplace owners embrace the opportunity to personally interact with customers to ensure their pets thrive through species correct nutrition. Founder Brad Romero was a K9 handler and the departmental trainer. After 25 years in law enforcement and K9 handling, he knew the nutritional requirements of an elite performance dog.



Ben’s Barketplace differs from any other franchise competitors by offering:

Training and Support – You can help prevent disease through laser-focused nutrition, yet nutrition is one of the most overlooked aspects of pet care. By customizing each dog’s or cat’s individual diet, optimal health is easily achieved. It’s not rocket science, it’s targeted nutrition.


Certifications – Through our nutritional core seminars you’ll be certified in pet food nutrition, raw dog food nutrition, and advanced pet nutrition. You’ll be armed with all the resources to guide your pet owners through this changing and challenging industry.


A Customer-Centric Business Model – When our customers seek our knowledge and expertise for their pets’ specific nutritional requirements, we’ve become a part of their family. This customer loyalty is what sets us apart from a simple pet food store! Your loyalty to our nation reflects the strongest personal commitment.


Recession-Proof Opportunities – Even in times of economic downturn, pets play an important role in people’s lives and require the best food and products available. Many pet owners will sacrifice so their furry family members have proper nutrition to stay healthy and safe. Diet is the key aspect to their health and longevity!
