Zoomin Groomin Franchise Review – Pet Grooming Business Opportunity
Zoomin Groomin is a relatively new franchise opportunity that has been franchising since 2006. The ideal franchisee is a pet groomer who is looking to leverage a franchise system for marketing and management support. The Zoomin Groomin franchise owner runs a grooming salon and pet spa directly from their home. So, obviously, the owner must have a home sufficient for this type of activity and experience in this line of work.
The franchise fee for this opportunity ranges from $10,000 to $20,000 depending upon the number of households in the territory. There is an ongoing royalty fee of 6% of the gross sales with a minimum of $75 per week. There is also a marketing fee of 3% of the gross sales and there are also minimum weekly requirements for this as well. Startup costs are estimated at $32,000 to $59,000 and third party financing is allowed. New franchisees must have a minimum net worth of $100,000. The company states that the typical initial investment is usually $32,000- $35,000.
Zoomin Groomin franchises must be owner operated. Therefore, if you are looking for a franchise opportunity that could result in passive income, this would not be for you. Zoomin Groomin offers the franchisee advertising and marketing programs, training, product purchasing discounts, a centralized call center for appointments and financial accounting services, and public relations support. Their support team assists new owners in developing optimal business practices and operations. They tout their “ZipWash” System as a proprietary program that can be operated from a qualified and approved vehicle. They also highly promote the advantages of leveraged buying power as a Zoomin Groomin strategic partner and member of one of the largest pet grooming services in the country.
