What Makes Ben’s Barketplace Different?

Superior, Organic and Raw Pet Nutrition

Ben’s Barketplace was founded out of a passion to provide superior products to maintain pet health and educate pet owners about the best health and nutrition practices. We stock only the very best organic and raw, healthy pet foods available that we’d feel comfortable feeding our own pets. Ben’s offers more than just products, but the added value of education through nutritional consultations to evaluate your customer’s pet needs and organize the best plan to develop and maintain optimum overall pet health.

The Customer Experience

It’s about more than just pet nutrition—you will provide a superior customer experience. Pet owners who care deeply about their pet’s health and are shopping for the very best pet food brands and are also looking for excellent customer service to elevate the value of the experience. After completing our full franchise training, you will offer the kind of service that enables you to develop relationships with your customers, who will then become loyal, lifelong patrons.

Franchise Ownership With Ben’s Barketplace

At Ben’s Barketplace, we offer a fully-developed business structure for our franchisees. To maintain the reputation of the Ben’s Barketplace brand, we thoroughly vet all our franchisees, and even if you feel like owning your own Ben’s and it’s a perfect fit for you, we want to make sure. Before you invest in your franchise we have a series of steps to be sure we’re the right fit for each other.

First Steps

First, contact us via email or through the chat feature on our website. Next, we’ll follow up with an introductory phone call so we can answer questions you may have and learn about your vision with franchise ownership. Additionally, we’ll open up our informational portal so you can do even more research. Then you’ll fill out a store ownership application. Once your application is fully approved, you will visit us at our headquarters so we can become better acquainted. After your visit, the next step is to join the Ben’s Barketplace team and start opening your own store!

Training

We offer a full week of training at our headquarters in Roseville, California followed by another week of training in your own store. We want you to feel confident in your role as a Ben’s Barketplace store owner, and for operations to run as smoothly as possible for you. For ongoing training and support, we have our corporate intranet available for you as well as:

  • Webinars and our annual conference

  • Training in retail sales and marketing concepts
  • In-depth retail customer service training
  • Training modules and pet care videos

A Best-in-Class Pet Marketplace

Ben’s Barketplace provides all of the training, support, education, and assistance you will need to have a successful franchise. To successfully navigate your new business venture all you need is a passion for pet nutrition and superior customer service.

Our 2016 FDD (Franchise Disclosure Document) reported over $1.3M in annual revenue. Having opened in 2005, Ben’s Barketplace is not a new kid on the block. We are an emerging franchise brand and we have already “made the grade.” We are pleased to be recognized as one of the best franchise opportunities by franchisegrade.com.

The current social, political, and economic climates have no effect on consumer’s needs for pet nutrition services. Pets are considered members of the family and their owners keep the health and wellbeing of their furry friends a top priority. Sometimes an even higher priority than their own healthcare!

Ben’s Needs You!

We are pleased to offer an all-encompassing education and training program to give our pet store franchisees all the tools needed for success. We want individuals who are passionate about superior pet health to take part in the growth of our business. The 2015-2016 APPA National Pet Owners Survey reported that 65% of U.S. households own pets. High-quality pet care is in demand, and because of this, our industry is recession-proof. If you’re interested and ready to make a commitment, it’s time to take the next step.

The first five franchisees onboarded will receive a discounted franchise fee—check to see if there is an available market near you.
