The Pet Food Supply Industry Continues to Expand
Overall spending in the pet supply industry is estimated to be nearly $63 billion in 2016, a notable and consistent increase from previous years. The pet food supply industry proves resilient, even during times of recession, and the 2015-2016 APPA National Pet Owners Survey reports that 65% of U.S. households, or 79.7 million homes, own a pet.
This growth spans small and large retail concepts within the pet supply marketplace, but Ben’s Barketplace differs from the big box stores. When customers visit a Ben’s, they receive individual attention with a Pet Nutrition Expert whose passion it is to share their expertise. Through personal interaction and evaluation, Ben’s Barketplace provides consumers with high quality, natural dietary supplies and recommends food, treats, and supplements to each customer based on their pet’s age, breed, weight and other determining factors.
More than just an average pet supply store, Ben’s Barketplace franchise owners embrace the opportunity to personally interact with customers to ensure dogs and cats thrive. Additionally, Ben’s Barketplace differs from franchise competitors by offering:
- A Customer-Centric Business Model – Dogs and cats are our passion!
- Recession Proof Opportunities – Even in times of economic downturn, pets play an important role in people’s lives and require the best food and products available.
- Training and Support – Ben’s franchisees become well educated on the pet food supply industry and the nutritional needs of pets before the doors of a new store open, and are updated on industry and companywide changes throughout franchise ownership. Ben’s Barketplace franchise support is never more than a phone call away.
Experts on pet nutritional information, as well as pet food supplies and products, affiliates of Ben’s Barketplace have an appreciation for pets of all kinds. New franchisees have the opportunity to join this rapidly growing, prosperous market by becoming part of the Ben’s Barketplace family today!
