Pet Supplies Plus, the largest independent pet franchise in North America with more than 660 stores in 41 states, was named top pet franchise for the ninth year in a row by Entrepreneur‘s Franchise 500, the world’s first and most comprehensive franchise ranking.
The 43rd annual Entrepreneur Franchise 500 is a highly sought-after honor in the franchise industry. Recognized as an invaluable resource for potential franchisees, the 2022 Franchise 500 ranks Pet Supplies Plus as No. 22 for its outstanding performance in key areas including unit growth, financial strength and stability, support and brand power.
Entrepreneur Editor in Chief Jason Feifer said, “The companies named to this year’s list showed us how being resilient, supportive and nimble can help navigate extraordinary challenges and also underscore the grit and innovation that define entrepreneurship.”
The ranking recognition follows the company’s latest development deals announced last month, which marked 90 signed franchise agreements for Pet Supplies Plus.
Pet Supplies Plus was also included in Franchise Time’s Fast & Serious ranking of 40 Smartest-Growing Franchises.
Pet Supplies Plus acquired Wag N’ Wash in February of 2022. Investors can select between two unique business models that both benefit from the same infrastructure support providing best in class purchasing power, supply chain efficiencies and advanced marketing campaigns.
“Pet Supplies Plus has been pet-focused and neighbor-centric since our founding more than 30 years ago. We are proud to now offer a second concept with Wag N’ Wash that also offers neighbors pet services with the same best-in-class, retail experience,” said Chris Rowland, CEO of Pet Supplies Plus and Wag N’ Wash.
