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.
