It’s going to take more than a pandemic to stop our pet franchise from growing! To the great excitement of pet parents in the Orlando suburb of Sanford, Florida, Franchise Owners Paige and Shaun Allen opened their brand new Hounds Town USA location on June 27, and they say business has been booming ever since!
Hounds Town pet franchise Founder Mike Gould, along with President Jackie Bondanza, were on hand to celebrate the Allens’ Grand Opening and to welcome both two-legged and four-legged guests to the all-new Sanford location, as well as to provide support and guidance as needed to make sure everything ran smoothly for the new pet Franchise Owners.
A New Hounds Town Pet Franchise Record!
Despite opening their pet franchise location amid COVID-19, Bondanza is thrilled to report that Hounds Town-Sanford is doing record-breaking business: during their first 10 days of operation, Shaun and Paige performed over 50 evaluations on new canine customers, surpassing any other location in Hounds Town pet franchise history! While this would be an extraordinary feat at any time, the fact that the Allens managed to pull this off during a pandemic shows just how necessary their pet franchise is to Orlando-area dog owners.
Bondanza comments, “We are thrilled that Hounds Town is now in the Orlando market. The fact that Franchise Owners Shaun and Paige were able to not only open during a pandemic but to break a record for new evaluations in their first weekend shows the absolute need for our services, the resiliency of our model, and the dedication from the Franchise Owners and their staff to make it happen!”
Shaun and Paige’s Pet Franchise Journey
The Allens’ pet franchise journey began back in early 2019, when Shaun, a general sales manager for a leading car dealership, and Paige, who served as the District Internal Operations Manager for the Orlando School Board, saw a major opportunity in the Hounds Town pet franchise. “We liked that Hounds Town was in the early stages of growth but still well-established with a solid business model,” said Shaun in a June 2019 interview. “The scalable business model that doesn’t stretch your investment was important…[and] with the multiple revenue options, we are excited to partner with them.”
Shaun and Paige also noticed a major surge in their local pet industry, and identified a largely-unmet need for dog owners in the Orlando area. “There has been a noticeable boom in the industry as well as the need here in Central Florida,” Paige commented. As dog lovers with two “fur kids” themselves, the Allens were committed to partnering with a pet franchise that not only exhibited extensive knowledge and understanding of dogs’ psychology and behavior but also put dogs first and foremost in every decision it makes. In her June 2019 interview, Paige remarked, “After meeting Jackie and Mike, we knew it was the right decision on our end. The simplicity and knowledge behind Hounds Town was what set it apart from others.”
Where is our Pet Franchise Opening Next?
In addition to the Allens’ new Orlando expansion, our pet franchise also just opened its first location in the Nashville area, with more new Hounds Town locations slated to open later this year in Las Vegas, Washington, D.C., Wilmington, North Carolina, and TWO in Charlotte, North Carolina, to name a few! We’re making pawprints across the country, and truly living up to the “USA” part of our pet franchise’s name!
