Yuma, Arizona (NAPSI) - Many people looking to be their own boss or to start a second career are exploring franchise ownership. Labeled “free agents” by Fast Company author Dan Pink and the “creative class” by economist Richard Florida, this new breed, experts say, is motivated to use its creative intelligence and do fulfilling work in addition to achieving its financial goals.
For example, consider the $50 billion-plus pet industry. Many with an entrepreneurial spirit and a savvy business sense are exploring the pet services market.
A franchise offering in-home dog behavioral training, Bark Busters, is the world’s largest dog training company. Over 500,000 dogs have been trained using its dog-friendly, natural method.
According to Liam Crowe, CEO of Bark Busters USA, “Dog-loving entrepreneurs find our positive approach to dog training very appealing. Our national call center and website receive more than 10,000 inquiries per month, many from frustrated dog owners seeking an effective and immediate way to address their dogs’ behavioral issues.”
Now, the same management team is offering another franchise concept: G’day! Pet Care, a business that provides home care and pet-sitting service, dog walking, and premium pet food with free delivery. Both franchises provide specialized training and ongoing business and marketing support.
“I’ve always loved and owned dogs,” said one franchise owner in Illinois. “After spending most of my life working in retail, I longed to work with dogs and to make a difference in the world. With Bark Busters, I now do what I love, helping others who are frustrated with their dog’s behavior, and I get great satisfaction from seeing a happy dog owner who now has a well-behaved dog.”
“Owning my own business is the best decision I’ve ever made,” said a G’day! Pet Care owner in Colorado. “I love the flexibility of being my own boss and setting my own schedule. With the recurring customer base in this business model, I make a good living and can scale my business to earn even more. I couldn’t be happier!”
