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 4,000 square feet to 6,700 square feet with a range in opening costs from $1,329,972 – $2,495,235.
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.
No, however, K9 Resorts is seeking franchisees who will commit their best efforts to developing their business. Therefore, K9 Resorts franchises to individuals who personally operate their facility and are involved in day-to-day operation, or an absentee/investor model is also acceptable.
