Top doggy day care and boarding franchise shares record systemwide sales, other industry-beating stats in new Franchise Disclosure Document

Camp Bow Wow, North America’s largest pet care franchise, has released its new Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD), reporting strong numbers that include record systemwide sales and an industry-beating average annual revenue growth rate.

According to the new FDD, from 2017 to 2021, the $160+ million company recorded a 14% average annual revenue growth rate1, which is seven times more than the annual growth of the economy and nearly twice the annual growth rate of the boarding and grooming sector of the $120+ billion pet care industry.

Additional system performance highlights in 2021 include:

The top 25% of Camps achieved an impressive 21% of owners’ discretionary income, with all Camps averaging 19%2Annual gross revenue per Camp reached $880,558, with $1,304,404 on average for the top 25% of Camps and $2,141,520 as the system high3Camp Bow Wow welcomed Campers for 4.4 million dog visits and achieved record-breaking customer acquisition that amounted to a 20% increase over 2019

Camp Bow Wow opened its 200th location last month in Lexington, Kentucky, achieving an open unit count that less than 10% of franchised brands ever reach, according to FRANData, and solidifying its position as the leading pet care franchise.

The brand has 60 total units in the development pipeline and anticipates increasing unit count by over 30% in the next three years.

Growth is being driven by a huge rise in pet adoption. According to the ASPCA, nearly one in five households – an estimated 23 million – adopted a pet during the pandemic, bringing the total percentage of U.S. households with a dog to 54% per the American Pet Products Association (APPA).

That trend has resulted in increased demand for boarding, doggy day care, and enrichment services as pet parents return to work and travel.

“Our strong partnership with franchise owners has created a tremendous period of growth and success for the Camp Bow Wow brand,” said Julie Turner, president of Camp Bow Wow.

“As the leading doggy daycare and boarding franchise, we have been able to enrich the lives of hundreds of thousands of dogs as we fulfill our mission of ‘Making Dogs Happy.'”

The strength of the brand’s franchise offering has been recognized in recent industry listings and awards, including:

In 2022, the company is focusing on further enhancing and leveraging technology to improve operational efficiency and the customer experience to help franchise owners grow and improve their business while continuing to expand the well-rounded Camp Bow Wow experience that helps dogs thrive.
