The luxury pet care brand Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming is kicking off its first Canadian location with a grand opening event.
Founded in 2007, Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming is a specialty retail company that offers premium pet food, pet supplies and professional pet grooming.
The brand specializes in providing dog owners with personalized and comfortable pet grooming services and high-quality pet treats that are made without artificial flavors, fillers and preservatives.
The Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming brand currently encompasses over 350 store locations that are either open or under development in the United States.
The first Woof Gang franchise store to open in Canada will be located in Oakville, Ont.
The launch of Woof Gang’s Oakville location will be supported by a grand opening event that will feature raffles, giveaways, prizes and more.
The brand is scheduled to open five additional franchise store locations in the Greater Toronto Area later this year.
“The opening of the Oakville location marks a significant step in our larger plan to paint Canada pink, and I’m particularly thrilled because, after my previous experience at Tim Hortons, I’ve personally witnessed the passion that franchise owners in Canada bring to their businesses,” said Woof Gang CEO, Ricardo Azevedo. “Woof Gang’s commitment to providing exclusive, gourmet treats and superior grooming services aligns perfectly with the dedication and care that I’ve seen in franchise owners in Canada.
“We are not just opening a store; we are building a pet haven for the community, and I look forward to spreading love and joy to the pets of Oakville and beyond.”
The Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming brand is actively seeking entrepreneurs and business owners to open additional franchise locations throughout North America.
The company currently offers a variety of supports to incentivize new Woof Gang franchise managers.
These supports include business plan development, site selection, lease negotiation, access to proprietary software, national and local marketing services, grand opening benefits and virtual and on-the-job training.
Military veterans can also apply for a ten percent discount off the Woof Gang pet care franchising fee.
The grand opening celebration for Oakville, Ontario’s new Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming location is scheduled to take place in March.
