What makes a great location?

Being a good neighbor is as important as zoning when it comes to running a boarding and day care franchise

Camp Bow Wow is North America’s No. 1 pet care franchise, with over 150 units in the U.S. and Canada and dozens more in development. With that many locations from coast to coast and in every major region of the country, we’ve learned a few things about the best way to select a site for your new Camp Bow Wow franchise.

There’s always going to be paperwork when it comes to a business that deals with the number of animals that we do on a daily, weekly and yearly basis. In 2017, Camp Bow Wow welcomed 250,000 4-legged customers, who spent 3.3 million dog visits with us. With our policy of “All Day Play Snooze the Night Away®”  and the al fresco portion of our indoor-outdoor play areas, sometimes things get a little raucous.

Franchise owners need to work with their local zoning and planning officials as well as their Camp Bow Wow corporate support team to make sure they find the right part of town for a Camp.

Where we work best

The typical location is 4,000 to 10,000 square feet of industrial or retail space, and most franchise owners lease their property. We strive to locate near targeted demographics and within proximity to major thoroughfares. We can co-locate in multi-tenant buildings or stand-alone sites. Locating near other businesses that cater to a similar high end customer base is always a plus!

Although Camp Bow Wow is a dominant brand occupying the “mover and shaker” position in a rapidly growing $69 billion industry, hundreds of territories are still available in the U.S.
