About the Company

We are beginning to build multiple locations and are looking for motivated individuals to help grow the brand and benefit from the growth. We are franchise owners for the 3rd largest pet specialty retailer in the country. Pet Supplies Plus has more than 450 locations in 33 states. Pet Supplies Plus is America’s favorite neighborhood pet store.

Each location offers a wide array of pet food, pet products, grooming services and animal expertise all at a great value, allowing customers to spoil their pets even more. Friendly, knowledgeable staff get to know each pet and their owner by name and provide playful store experiences to remind them just how fun it is to own a pet. Pet Supplies Plus stores are large enough to house an incredible variety of food and equipment, yet small enough to still feel neighborly.
