Here are some commonly asked questions about becoming a K9 Resorts Franchisee. If you have additional questions, please contact us at 908-889-PETS.
K9 Resorts is very selective about who we grant a franchise to. We need to get to know one another to determine if there is a good fit for both of us. We don’t sell franchises, we award them to qualified people that we feel will continue to build on the K9 Resorts track record.
We believe that the most successful franchisees are solid business individuals, hard workers, and genuine dog lovers. They also have the skill set to work with the general public, manage employees and have the skills to follow a budget.
The cost to open depends on many factors, including the size of your building, your location, construction costs, equipment, professional fees and licenses. A K9 Resorts facility can range in size from 4,500 square feet to 6,000 square feet with a range in opening costs from $915,655 – $1,292,859.
K9 Resorts does not provide financing directly, however we do have strong relationships with local banks that are our “preferred lenders” and are ready to lend to those who meet their financial qualifications. Typically 25% of the total investment is necessary to obtain financing.

You will be in business for yourself, but not by yourself!
