Long Beach, CA (PRWEB) August 05, 2013
Pet Sit Pros, Inc., (PSP), has just announced they are opening franchise territories throughout California and 36 other states in the U.S. Pet Sit Pros is currently pursuing the right persons to be the new franchisee owners for each new location and to provide professional pet sitting and dog walking services to their communities.
Pet Care Businesses have been all the rage across the United States for the past few years. Pet Care has proven to be one of the only recession proof industries experiencing growth every year since the 2008 economic downturn. Small Business Opportunities Magazine ranked pet sitting as a #1 Business Opportunity for 2012. Now the economy is back on track and the pet services industry is projected to earn more than $60 billion in 2013 almost an 8% increase over 2012.
That 8% increase represents $4.5 billion! Whose pockets will that money go into? How about yours?
Pet Sit Pros, is a leader in the Southern California pet sitting and dog walking market. Their high tech business model has proven to be highly profitable. Pet Sit Pros is sharing their expertise through their new franchising program. Pet Sit Pros currently has 3 locations serving clients in 15 cities in 2 Southern California Counties.
Each new location will be individually owned and run by a franchisee owner, but with tremendous support from the founder and President of the company, Jay Goldfischer. PSP franchisees will work together on different events, help each other with clients when needed and really care for each other's success.
PSP's founder and President, Jay Goldfischer is a New Jersey native who grew up in Bergen County, NJ and attended Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ where he earned both his BA and Master’s Degree. In the aftermath of Sept. 11, 2001 he moved to Long Beach, CA. The idea for Pet Sit Pros came about in 2008 after Goldfischer had some bad kennel experiences where his dog came home sick from the kennel each time he went away. As a result, he started Pet Sit Pros under the premise that the safest place for your pet when you go away is at home with a professional who loves them. “The model of in home pet sitting where a professional pet sitter or dog walker visits your home has really taken off the last few years as a great alternative to kenneling or boarding your pets" stated Goldfischer.
Owners of the franchises will live in the town and area they serve, so they are already familiar and rooted in the community. They will cultivate close relationships with their clients and their communities where they provide pet sitting and dog walking services. Each new franchise owner will be certified in Pet CPR & First Aid just as every employee and current franchise owner of PSP's locations are. Each new owner gets training, full support from the PSP staff to get started and Goldfischer is always available to help them when needed. Their business model focuses on using the latest technology available to simplify the tasks of scheduling, training, communicating, invoicing, billing and accounting. Typically, pet sitting businesses are pretty mom and pop old school style with little technology and lots of paperwork. "Pet Sit Pros will lead the industry into the 21st century with cutting edge technologies aimed at simplifying the experience for business owners, employees and clients so they can focus on what’s most important… the pets they love" stated Goldfischer. Franchise costs are reasonable, and owners will work out of a small office and out in the community doing pet sitting and dog walking, so there is not the high cost of overhead of running a storefront as in typical franchises.
Why become a franchisee rather than just start your own small business on your own? According to Goldfischer "becoming a Pet Sit Pros franchisee lets you skip many of the costly mistakes and investments that it would take to build a successful high-tech pet sitting and dog walking business on your own. We know how to run an in-home pet care business because we’re owners too. We’ve spent countless hours getting the local model just right. In addition, we’re building high-tech solutions for the mobile connected future of the pet sitting and dog walking industry – many that your clients and competitors have never seen before. Our pet sitting and dog walking franchise program will give you the tools to become a pet care leader in your area!"
New franchises across the country will also promote job growth as all of the current franchise owners have hired people to help them with their clients. Goldfischer’s own location in Long Beach, CA, employs 14 pet sitters, dog walkers and a manager.
