Pet Franchise Aims to Have More than 200 Sites by 2025
Franchise development firm REP’M Group has added St. Petersburg-Based Splash and Dash Groomerie & Boutique to its portfolio of franchises. REP’M offers a full range of franchise services to nurture emerging franchises and will apply them to help Splash and Dash expand its brand within the thriving U.S. pet industry.
Splash and Dash, which is based in St. Petersburg, Fla., has 15 sites up and running today. With REP’M Group’s help, the franchise aims for 200-plus locations being under development within the next three years.
In a news release about Splash and Dash joining forces with his firm, Nick Sheehan, REP’M co-founder and managing partner, stated, “Splash and Dash exemplifies what we’re looking for in a partner.” Sheehan added that “Splash and Dash has had incredible success over the past five years with consistent and continued growth during the turmoil of Covid. The brand has continued to grow its revenue and has made tremendous steps toward becoming a nationwide boutique grooming studio.”
About the Splash and Dash Franchise
Dan Barton started Splash and Dash to create a clean and luxurious oasis for pets. The 13-year-old business offers services such as relaxing spa treatments, an unlimited monthly bath membership, dog grooming, and dog dental hygiene. Several services can be combined during one visit to a Splash and Dash location.
In the news release, Barton stated, “We are confident that working with REP’M Group will allow the Splash and Dash brand to successfully expand into new territories throughout the United States.” Barton also said he wants to do no less than “revolutionize the dog grooming business.”
One unique facet of Splash and Dash’s services is a membership program that encourages pet parents to stop in for free baths between scheduled grooming visits. With all employees manning iPads, along with TV monitors at every grooming station, Splash and Dash’s proprietary software can keep everyone in communication throughout grooming services.
Splash and Dash has been franchising since 2015. Its sites are sprinkled from coast to coast – California to North Carolina, Michigan and Idaho down to Louisiana, and many states in between.
