Business Description

3,000+ Customer Base - Booked out an average of 4 weeks in advance

We are a dog grooming shop and doggie boutique. Services include baths, ear cleanings, nail clips and haircuts for all breeds of dogs. In addition, we offer specialty services including flea baths, de-skunking, specialty baths and haircuts.

As a boutique, we offer a range of high quality dog foods and treats, dog gear and products.

Our target market is:

• Owners of dogs of all sizes and breeds who consider their pets as family
• Dog owners of breeds that require regular monthly grooming
• Households with multiple dogs
• Consumers who shop for quality dog supplies/dog food
• Owners of dogs requiring relief from fleas, skunk, matting etc.

We provide personalized care as opposed to corporate-style care. As evidenced by our stellar reputation and loyal clientele of 3,000+ customers, we have been a successful and profitable venture for over a decade.

The pet industry is a booming business. Dog ownership in particular has shown exceptional growth. Not only do more people own dogs, but also the number of dogs per household has grown. The result is a large number of dogs in need of grooming services and products. An important fact about today’s dog owners is that they not only care for their pets, but also pamper them.

Specifically, there is a high demand for dog grooming in Fairfield County as evident by the volume of customers currently served at our shop.  There are over 3,000 customers that frequent our shop, most of whom are continuous repeat customers.

We satisfy the extreme need for dog grooming in this community. Unlike most dog grooming shops, we provide a homelike setting. Customers have full access to groomers, personalized grooming options and flexible time slots. We use high quality, organic, natural and USA-made products only.  

The boutique portion of the business offers only 100% American-made dog supplies, organic and all-natural brands of dog food and treats. Other inventory includes pet apparel, collars, leashes, harnesses, bowls, beds, toys, shampoo/conditioner, stationary and more.

Our business model is structured to employ commission-based groomers and hourly-paid assistants.

Included in asking price
All grooming equipment (tubs, grooming tables, dryers, cages etc.) is in place and in good working order and will remain at the facility. Furniture, décor and electronics will remain in place as well as inventory. A software program is currently in use to facilitate scheduling, inventory control, and billing. The leased facility is located in a prime location as it is easily accessible from two major highways (I-95 and Merritt Parkway). The shop is highly visible from the street and is located on a main drive near two major shopping plazas.
Big box competition like PetCo often employ groomers-in-training resulting in subpar service. We employ highly trained/talented groomers who provide superior service. Contrary to the generic atmosphere of a store like Petco, we provide a personalized experience for both customer and dog. We use and sell only organic and natural products. Most brands sold at our shop are not available at big box stores such as PetCo. Clients are primarily from Stratford and its neighboring towns, but also include dog owners from New Haven and Fairfield county
Growth & Expansion:
Ninety percent of our revenue is derived from the grooming portion of the business. Future plans to increase revenue could include adding services such as specialty baths, promotional incentives and expansion of the dog boutique portion of the shop. Pricing is based on dog breed, size, condition, intricacy of grooming and time needed to complete the service. A la carte services are available at an additional cost. The current average cost of grooming is $73. Yearly review should be conducted to address price increases due to expenses.
Support & Training:
The current/original owner will train the new owners on all aspects of the business including bookkeeping, payroll, taxes, etc. A binder will be provided consisting of vendor contacts, instructions on software operation, bookkeeping and a general contact list.
