Pet Care Proves Recession Proof in 2020
The world changed in 2020, but one thing that didn’t change was people’s desire to give their pets premium care. Even though many of us were staying home a lot more, the pet care industry continued its upward climb during the ongoing pandemic. Places like dog daycare and boarding facilities may have had to close their doors briefly, but once they were reopened, their furry friends came flooding back. Pet parents understand their pets’ need for social interaction. Even with the decrease in travel and in-office working, pet parents still sought out fun, stress-free places for their four-legged friends to expel some energy and make new friends. K9 Resorts continued its growth during one of the most challenging years for businesses and franchises in recent history. Through its commitment to quality and stress-free pet care, K9 Resorts was able to open more locations and expand its footprint.
“The pet industry is recession-resistant,” said the founders. “The industry as a whole has grown over the past 20 years and K9 Resorts is the leading brand in the pet hospitality sector and a category creator for high-end pet boarding and doggie daycare!”
Here’s a look at how the last year went and what founders are focused on moving forward.
How 2020 Looked
While the past year was not easy by any stretch of the imagination, K9 Resorts was able to keep moving forward and provide luxury dog daycare and boarding services to their dedicated clients while keeping an eye on expansion. In 2020, K9 Resorts signed on 14 new locations, which are in the process of opening. With 12 current locations and 53 total locations in varying stages of development, K9 Resorts shows no signs of slowing its growth.
K9 Resorts also recently launched an app for their customers. Now customers can make boarding reservations, update vaccination records, purchase doggie daycare packages, request photos, and more directly from the app. This streamlines services and increases the ability to remain distanced as needed from staff and other customers.
