Zoom Room, the venture-backed, revolutionary indoor dog training gym, announced record growth with 15 franchise signings and the opening of three new locations in 2020, accentuating the company’s ability to prosper despite the global pandemic. Nearly tripling Zoom Room’s national presence, the expansion is led by a five-unit deal in Dallas, TX and a three-unit deal in Austin, TX, delivering the company’s first multi-unit agreements.
The news was jointly announced by CEO Mark Van Wye and President & CEO of AP Franchised Concepts Anthony Polazzi, who also report overall success of existing stores as they each experience a double-digit increase in sales in spite of 2020’s impact on most industries.
Following three highly successful openings in Arizona, California and Florida in 2020, Zoom Room sold 14 additional franchise units across Texas, Washington, California, Colorado and Nevada.
“The pandemic has caused many industries to not only fight to sustain themselves, but to survive,” said Van Wye. “The pet industry, on the other hand, is thriving as dog adoption rates have seen a 700 percent increase, allowing Zoom Room to continue providing exceptional and much needed dog training and socialization. In doing so, franchises have continued to experience double digit year-over-year growth in revenue with socially-distanced classes, especially for puppy training, which are in higher demand than ever before.”
