Aussie Pet Mobile Puts Metro Vancouver on the Map


Jan 24, 2011


VANCOUVER – (January 24, 2011) – There’s no putting the brakes on Aussie Pet Mobile Canada as the Vancouver-based company announces three new multi-unit franchise agreements for Mid Vancouver Island, Vancouver West and the Tri-Cities.

The announcement comes just 30 days after Aussie Pet Mobile, the largest mobile pet groomer in the world, inked a multi-unit franchise agreement with Michelle Berg, owner of Aussie Pet Mobile North and West Vancouver. More than 1.25 million Canadians now have access to the eco-friendly, convenient pet concept.

“We are moving full-steam ahead and have no plans to slow down development efforts in Canada,” said Richard Avis, CEO of Aussie Pet Mobile Canada. “Investors are coming to us wanting to break into Canada’s six billion dollar pet industry and are finding that Aussie Pet Mobile is their answer. As we continue to build a great track record with our pet clients, we look forward to introducing our services to even more of them throughout Canada in the months to come.”

The new Aussie Pet Mobile units are projected to open during the first quarter of 2011. Company expansion plans include opening new locations in Ontario, Alberta and all other provinces within the next two years.

“With today’s busy lifestyle, the demand for premium quality, convenient mobile pet grooming service is already high and on the rise,” added Avis. “Pet owners understand the importance of having their pet regularly groomed to keep them fuzzy, clean and healthy. On the other hand, they all know very well how time consuming the process can be. Aussie Pet Mobile takes away the hassle and adds some extra free time to their day.”

A scalable business requiring no commitment to real estate or retail shop leases, the Aussie Pet Mobile franchise fee starts at $29,000 and requires a minimum of $73,000 in capital for a single unit operation. A multi-unit option is also available for franchise investors interested in purchasing several vans within their exclusive territory, which is defined by postal codes, as each existing van grows towards its monthly “capacity.”

“Our franchise owners are finding tremendous value in committing to a larger territory right from the start, allowing them to build the brand and scale the business up as demand grows,” said Avis. “Aussie Pet Mobile has an option that fits well with many of our potential investor’s wants and needs when it comes to owning their own business.”

The convenient mobile pet grooming service offers one-on-one attention in an inviting and relaxing atmosphere not typically found in storefront grooming locations. The Aussie Pet Mobile, a custom-designed Mercedes Benz Sprinter van fully self-contained with air conditioning, heat, electricity, and water, relies on no outside electrical or water hookups, making the unique service easy for apartment or condo residents as well as homeowners. The van’s ramp and spacious interior help pets maneuver easily and enhance the groomers’ ability to ensure all of the pets’ needs are met. Aussie Pet Mobile is also an avid user of eco-friendly products, which turn the grey water into an environmentally friendly composition, easily dispersed through natural resources versus a sewer or septic tank.
