Investing in a pet food franchise is a great way to break into a booming industry. People love their pets - in fact, $69.51 billion was spent on pets in 2017. This means that there is a lot of potential in the pet industry, but the best way to see success is to look at what that money is going toward within it. There are several sectors to the pet industry, ranging from supplies, vet care, animal purchases, grooming, and, of course, pet food. Pet food made up the highest share in the industry at an astounding $29.88 billion, and that number has only grown since 2017.

People care about their pets. Not surprisingly, many owners think of them as family. This means they want to provide them with the best pet food they can, which is why a pet food franchise like Jemelli is the best investment in such a growing industry. Here’s what it costs to open your own pet food franchise with us and how you can get started.

How Much Does It Cost to Open a Pet Food Franchise?

Our model is simple – for as little as a $34,300 initial investment you can get exclusive rights to a 400,000-household territory that has a high percentage of dog owners. This includes the franchise fee, the initial inventory of dog food, training and support, and territory rights. Here are a few of the things that are included in a Jemelli pet food franchise investment:

Franchise Fee: This fee covers the exclusive rights to use the Jemelli name and product. This also covers the initial training you will receive to get started with your new business.

Travel Expenses (for training): You may need to travel to the Jemelli headquarters in order to learn about the product in full detail. The initial investment accounts for any travel and lodging expenses incurred.

Opening Inventory: In order to start your business, you need to have some inventory to begin selling. Depending where you are located in relation to headquarters, you don’t want to keep dogs waiting for their food because you didn’t have any to start off.

Grand Opening Advertising: The best way to start getting customers is to let them know you exist! Advertising that you are coming to their community will put you on the map, and dog owners will begin looking into your new business.

Additional Funds: You want to make sure you have some liquid capital to start your business. We made sure to take into account some money that could serve as an emergency fund if you need it.

What Is My Role as a Franchise Owner?

Your role as the franchise owner is to sell and promote the Jemelli product: superfood for dogs. Our healthy foods are made with a special, one-of-a-kind formula that is made at our headquarters. We combine this with different proteins to create a well-balanced meal for dogs. With a pet food franchise like ours, your primary goal is to find dog owners in your territory, sell them the Jemelli superfoods, and get it delivered to their door via FedEx. In addition, placing Jemelli into pet grooming salons and dog food suppliers is also a great opportunity to grow sales in your territory. We kept it simple so that anyone who is passionate about dogs, looking for a way to earn extra money with their own business, or pursuing a career for themselves can have the opportunity to do so.

There are no storefront requirements. The only thing that a franchise owner needs is a place and a freezer to store the pet food. Since there are few site requirements, our franchise cost is relatively low compared to many other pet food franchise opportunities.
