Location Search, Site Evaluation, Lease Negotiation Assistance
Location continues to be a critical key to success, but so are the terms of the lease and the layout of the building. Our national real estate team has been involved in site selection and lease negotiations for many of the largest retailers in the USA and will help you find the perfect location for your The Dog Stop® business. We are well equipped to assist you in negotiating the business terms of a lease as well as walk you through the construction and build-out process.
Design, Construction And Equipment
We provide you with prototype layouts of your entire facility, from the retail and client reception area to doggie play areas, grooming rooms, bathing rooms and outside play yards.
We have established relationships with the best suppliers of kennels, fencing, flooring, pet care management software (PCMS), and other fixtures/equipment/supplies you will need for your store. We not only help streamline that aspect of the business but also help you save money in the process.
Extensive Training In Every Aspect Of All Operations
We have comprehensive training manuals that are designed to assist you in every aspect of the business, including but not limited to: site selection and lease negotiations, design and construction, pre-opening procedures, ongoing operations, employee administration, financial administration, marketing and a pet care management software (PCMS) that will track all activities of each dog that becomes a customer.
Grand Opening And Ongoing Visitation
We will be there before, during and after your grand opening week to guide you and then commit to a visitation schedule to offer assistance and to make sure you are operating as smoothly as possible. Of course, we will always be available for day-to-day routine questions and suggestions.
Marketing And Advertising
The Dog Stop® marketing department provides full-time marketing and advertising support for all our franchisees. In addition to complete brand and website management, our marketing team is here to assist in budgeting, planning, media buying, event planning and implementation, as well as public relations, community relations, and social media management.
The Dog Stop® Pet Care Management Software (PCMS)
Our PCMS is designed to help you track all activities of the store, and functions not only as a database to track client information and activity such as retail sales, bathing and grooming, medical history, and the client as well as veterinarian contact information but also acts as a POS reporting center and reservation system. This all-in-one capacity provides precise information and streamlines capabilities that save time and money.
