Franchise With Pet Planet
We get it. There are hundreds, maybe even thousands of entrepreneurial opportunities in the marketplace today – all claiming to offer you wealth and success. Couple some catch phrases – “Get rich quick”, “work from home and earn a great living” or “no risk opportunity” with eye-catching, professional marketing and almost any empty promise can look like the perfect opportunity.
At Pet Planet, we are not going to wow you with pretty marketing (although we think ours looks pretty good) and catch-phrase promises, we are simply going to keep it real. You will have to work hard, there will be good days and bad days, this decision will change your life – but by becoming a part of the Pet Planet team you can trust that you will have the tools to successfully achieve any goal you set for yourself and that we will be here to celebrate with you along the way.
Nineteen years ago, the founders of our company recognized a need in an industry that was in its early stages of evolution. A need that would ultimately help pets live longer and healthier lives. They set their sights, took a deep breath and dove in opening their first store in Calgary, Alberta in 1996.
Every detail was perfectly planned and executed with the utmost precision, and as the very first customer walked to the counter to make the very first purchase it hit them, they had mitigated every single detail…except how to operate the till. Bumps will happen when you open our own business, challenges will present themselves, but it’s how you overcome them that will ultimately determine your successes.
Today, our founder and her mother, both know how to operate a till, and even more importantly a successful, multi-million dollar company, that through the dedication of our Corporate and Franchise teams has grown to over 50 stores across Canada and in the USA. We continue to evolve and grow as a Franchisor and look forward to continuing to impact this industry with integrity and the sense of adventure that started it all.
The Franchise Model
A Pet Planet franchise provides an opportunity to partner with a seasoned team who share your commitment to uncompromising standards and ethics.
From our first conversation until the day you open your store, our step by step training program will help prepare you for your journey to owning your own business. Once your store opens, on-going support, proven programs and marketing initiatives will provide you the opportunity to “live your passion each day” all while making a difference in the lives of your customers and their pets.

How do I join the team?
Firstly, we recommend that you take a long look at your life and the goals you have set for yourself and your family. Where do you see yourself in 5, 10, 25 years? What is your dream? Then ask yourself how can I achieve them? If you have decided that you still want to talk, we are ready and waiting!
Cold feet welcomed
We are not in this to “sell” you a franchise. This may be the number one differentiator between us and other franchisors today. We are looking to partner with you to achieve great success. Through our qualification process and discussions with you, we are going to help to determine if owning a franchise is the right choice for you and your family. We hope it is, but if at ANY point in the qualification process you decide that we are not the right fit we will completely understand…and we will be here if you ever change your mind. Cold feet are okay! This is a BIG decision, but just so you know we can help you find some really warm socks!
You’ve made your decision to start the conversation here’s what happens next:
- When you submit your online request for more information you will receive emails from our Founder and our Director of Franchise Development welcoming you to Pet Planet as well as two additional emails regarding our franchise model.
- Our Director of Franchise Development will email you to arrange a day and time to connect by phone.
- After this initial conversation, a first meeting will be set up to formally introduce you to Pet Planet – this is the first meeting in a three-step qualification process.
- If it is determined that you wish to move forward with Pet Planet, we will book your second qualification meeting. At the completion of this meeting if you are still interested in our franchise system you will be asked to sign a confidentiality agreement. Once signed the final meeting will be booked.
- When the qualification process is completed you will be asked to sign a disclosure document, you will receive a draft copy of the Franchise Agreement and then you will commence the process to secure financing for purchase.
- Once financing is in place you will be asked to sign and execute our Franchise Agreement – and will officially become a franchisee in our system. Congratulations! Now the fun really begins!!!
