All prospective franchisees will need to pay is a fee to cover the costs of initial training and launch marketing
The multi-service pet care business’ ‘Easy Start’ scheme means anyone buying a Petpals franchise will only be required to pay a fee to cover the costs of initial training and launch marketing, with the remainder of the £12,500 (plus VAT) investment spread over the rest of the franchise term, which is usually five years.
Kevin Thackrah, managing director of Petpals, says: “At Petpals, we have been helping franchisees start up and run their own pet care businesses for over 17 years.
“With Easy Start, we’re looking forward to helping more people to join us and share in the success and strength of the UK pet care market.
“We appreciate that people don’t always have the upfront funds to purchase a franchise and it’s testament to our confidence in our brand and to the potential for success for our new franchisees that we’re able to offer this new scheme.”
Petpals franchisees own their own exclusive territories, from where they board and walk dogs, visit cats and any other pets while their owners are at work or on holiday.
