Is a Pet Grooming, Pet Spa, or Dog Wash Franchise Right for You?

The pros and cons of starting a pet grooming franchise are largely those that go along with any other pet franchise; increased cost but usually a turn-key operation which helps you become successful and avoid mistakes.

Entrepreneur Magazine has a terrific section on franchises; these are the pet grooming, pet spa and/or pet wash franchises listed rated as of July 2006.

None of the franchises listed here are endorsed by Pet Business Central, and of course, this list is only the beginning point in your research. Be sure to check out the other Pet Franchise categories, since some stores can be listed in more than one.
