Looking for the right pet franchise to invest in? Preppy Pet Franchises is the only choice!

True To Our Heritage Preppy Pet started modestly in 2003, offering excellent services at fair prices while expecting a quick return on investment. Today we are still operating at that same location in Orlando which is our headquarters, while most pet franchises and independents alike close to us and across the nation have broken records of spending with huge opening costs, drowning in debt service with big operating costs leading to high daily dog break even, high risks and failure. Preppy Pet stays true to its heritage and holding to our concept of maintaining both a low opening and operating costs. This conservative approach is more important than ever in today’s business plan. We would never ask more from our franchises than how we started. There are few franchises that can say that today. We can still offer a Complete Pet Care Business, Turn-key, ready to operate for as low as $100,000 for a smaller floor plan to a large floor plan for less than $300,000. You will spend much more if you open a independent location without the proven and successful business plan, training and ongoing support that Preppy Pet offers.

Preppy Pet Provides More Revenue Streams than any other Pet Franchise. There are several pet franchises that offer a few limited services and products, but why restrict your business, increase the risk of failure and struggle financially on the ramp-up period or even wait years for a return on investment?
