Fill out our form below to gain access to the Hounds Town Franchise Report so that you can learn a little more about the Hounds Town USA franchise opportunity and who we are looking for in our next franchise partner. Once you submit your form, we will send some more information via email and reach out to you ASAP to set up your initial qualification call.
QUALITIES OF A SUCCESSFUL FRANCHISE OWNER
You might not have ever owned a business before, and that’s OK! Most Franchise Owners hadn’t. But you should have a knack for sales and/or management, and leading a small team of employees and working hard.
You gotta love dogs! You should be passionate about animals and providing the best experience for companion pets and their four-legged family members.
You should be excited about getting active in your community by promoting your new business to help reduce euthanization rates, educate the community, and establish dog handling protocols to make shelters and rescues and staff safer.
If you describe yourself as uptight and corporate, you might not enjoy the Hounds Town culture. If you’re driven toward success without taking yourself too seriously, and are able to share a laugh with your team and customers every single day, you could go far as a Hounds Town Franchise Owner!
THE NEXT STEPS
Over the next 4 – 6 weeks, we will walk you through an Education Process that allows you the opportunity to thoroughly learn about the Hounds Town USA franchise model, and allows us to learn more about your viability as a newFranchise Owner. Here’s what our qualifying franchise candidates can expect next:
1. CONFIDENTIAL QUESTIONNAIRE
You’ll complete a short Questionnaire providing us with a little more information about you. Then we can send you the Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD), providing you with a lot more information about us.
2. BUSINESS MODEL OVERVIEW
Before the initial call, you will receive our Business Model Overview webinar that dives deeper into the business model, support, marketing, and more.
3. INITIAL CALL
We will schedule a call to get acquainted with each other and find out what you’re looking for in a franchise. You will learn more about the franchise system, the industry and what makes Hounds Town thrive, and we will learn more about your background and business/lifestyle goals.
4. UNIT ECONOMICS
We take a deep-dive into the numbers together so you can see how much your investment will cost …and how much you can potentially make!
5. FDD REVIEW
The Franchise Disclosure Document provides you with all the nuts and bolts on the Hounds Town franchise, including franchise rules, investment levels and detailed financial performance information for our open locations.
6. MARKET RESEARCH
In this step, we look into the viability of your market for Hounds Town USA. You will gain a better understanding of potential businesses to partner with and the demographics of your market.
7. PRESIDENT'S CALL
Graduating to this stage means you have earned a scheduled phone meeting with our President, Jackie Bondanza. This is your opportunity to sell your story and abilities to Jackie, as well as address any questions you have on the model as you continue to understand if this business is right for you.
8. PEER REVIEW
During the Peer Review step you will have the opportunity to speak directly to Hounds Town Owners. You get to ask questions about what it’s like to own and operate a Hounds Town, and our Franchise Owners get to learn a little about you, and provide us with feedback on whether or not they feel you will be a good fit with the Hounds Town family.
9. APPROVAL DAY
Following an executive review of your progress through the first five steps, we will then invite you to New York to spend the day with the Hounds Town Executive Team. You will get to see the business model in action, tour some Hounds Town locations and meet the support staff.
