Pet Supplies Plus Skyrockets to No. 49 on Entrepreneur Franchise 500 List

Neighborhood Pet Store Scores High Marks in Multiple National Publications

LIVONIA, Mich. (Feb. 1, 2016) – Continued growth within the pet aisle and rising number of “pet parents” in the United States have resulted in record-setting expansion for Pet Supplies Plus. The company’s reward: high ranks in major national publications throughout the country.
With 60 new stores on the way in 2017, bringing the company total to nearly 450, Pet Supplies Plus jumped 151 spots on Entrepreneur Magazine’s “Franchise 500” list for the New Year, landing at a sparkling No. 49 after garnering a No. 200 rank heading into last year. Noted as the world’s first, best and most comprehensive franchise ranking of the top franchisee opportunities in the United States, the Franchise 500 list recognizes and celebrates top franchises based on financial strength and stability, growth rate and size of the franchise system.
Operating in a $62 billion pet industry, the 385-unit retailer is showing no signs of slowing down.
“It is a tremendous honor to receive high praise from such prestigious publications across the country,” said Pet Supplies Plus CEO Chris Rowland. “We remain committed to national growth that results in positive impact in communities all over the country.”
On top of its new, sparkling Entrepreneur ranking, Pet Supplies Plus was named the National Retailer of the Year by reputable industry publication Pet Business Magazine, cracked the top 100 on the Franchise Times Top 200 Franchises list at No. 100 – best in the pet retail industry and No. 8 in the retail segment – and landed at No. 48 overall in best franchisee satisfaction according to Franchise Business Review.
The local community approach from a privately owned company, along with its overall impact and growth within the retail landscape, were the top reasons Pet Supplies Plus received the high marks.
“Most importantly, Pet Supplies Plus remains committed to introducing our warm, welcoming, local environment throughout our expansion,” Rowland said. “We will continue to create homegrown career and business opportunities and dive into new cities as well, to give them a chance to experience a pet store with employees who truly care about their neighbors and pets when they come in.”
The 28-year-old retailer signed 33 franchise deals for 75 units in 2016 and broke into new territories that included Colorado, Oklahoma, Kansas and California. Its national total now stands at 29 states.
