By

If it’s big brown eyes and a long pink tongue that tickles your entrepreneurial fancy, Woof Gang Bakery has all the ingredients necessary for a successful venture. In this $41 billion pet food and supply market, Doggie treats alone passed the billion-dollar mark in the past decade, but boutique-style dog snacks have an appeal to pet owners that goes beyond price. Woof Gang Bakery treats are for discriminating dog-lovers who treat their pets like members of the family. They are “discerning customers who demonstrate tremendous purchasing power and intent."

Background and Benefits

As a new company (2007) with only 3 franchises so far, for what it lacks in history Woof Gang Bakery promises to make up for in potential as the nation’s “fastest-growing gourmet dog-treat bakery and retail store franchise.” Woof Gang Bakery creates hand-made, “healthy” dog treats that are baked on location, along with premium pet foods, organic food, and natural supplements. In addition, they advertise an unusual assortment of boutique items like distinctive doggie spa products along with an “unusual” assortment of pet supplies. Woof Gang Bakery also offers “a wide selection of super premium pet foods, holistic supplements, vitamin-enhanced water just for dogs, and specialty frozen treats.

How Much Does a Woof Gang Bakery Franchise Cost?

Start up costs run $35,000 to $60,000 with a total investment of between $65,000 and $90,000. Included are 5 days of on-site training in the corporate training center in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. Specific details concerning fees and royalties are difficult to attain without sending for an application.

What We Like

The company is committed to providing superior products designed to enhance the well-being of dogs. Woof Gang Bakery provides wholesome, quality products that enhance the well-being, health, and happiness of beloved canine companions. Hands-on baking, kitchen-training support visits, and help line site selection with demographic requirements and recommendations builds confidence in the purchaser of one of these mom-and-pop franchises. Dogs are always welcome in their stores.

Pros

  • Exciting Business Model - This is about the most fun you can have in this genre.
  • Turnaround Time - A quick turn around time has you up and running in 14-16 weeks.

Cons

  • Location Sensitive - As an upscale specialty shop for pets, this business needs a highly discriminating clientele to support it. Choose your location carefully.
  • Market is Too Small - It may be tough to pay the bills only selling gourmet pet food. The market for this type of business is too small
