  • Pet Boutique with Grooming Department Business Plans

    Pet Boutique with Grooming Department Business Plans

    Since 2000 there has been a sharp increase in the number of pet boutiques with grooming. No wonder. Studies show that retail environments record up to 30% more in retail sales when services like grooming are also offered. The foot traffic of the grooming clients increases retail sales, and no pet care service is more frequency based than grooming. Solid grooming clients can be counted to come in every 4 to 12 weeks. Pet boutiques, like pet salons and shops, are typically in commercial locations...

  • Shop, Salon & Spa Business Plans

    Shop, Salon & Spa Business Plans

    Let's start by saying that there is little difference in the term "shop" versus "salon." Most consumers sense the use of the term "salon" as being more upscale, and not necessarily a larger business than a shop. "Shop" is simply casual. So for the purpose of discussion here unless otherwise noted, we mean the same thing whether we use the term "shop" or "salon." If your interest is a pet spa this is your section too. The term "pet spa" has been around for some time but its use is on the incr...

  • Home Based Grooming Business Plan

    Home Based Grooming Business Plan

    Many people have a strong desire to operate a business in their home. They enjoy eliminating regular work commutes. Some groomers prefer to be closer to their family especially while raising young children, so a home based business is ideal. Operating a home business is clearly an appealing working lifestyle choice but there are some potential disadvantages you should consider. First, the home-based pet grooming business rarely earns the "net worth" of a commercial salon business as a bus...

  • Business Plans for Mobile Grooming

    Business Plans for Mobile Grooming

    Starting a mobile grooming business typically involves less cash outlay than a commercial location. Most of the cash outlay is required for the down payment on the mobile vehicle, but you need to have some cash reserves while you grow the business adequate to cover your expenses, and start-up expenses. You do need to investigate licenses carefully. Sometimes you need to get local approval from each city, town or county you groom in the form of a license or permit. Also, some housing asso...

  • Even Groomers Need a Company Attorney

    Even Groomers Need a Company Attorney

    You may never need an attorney as a pet groomer, but having one associated with your business can be invaluable at times and provide some peace-of-mind. An attorney who understands business affairs can save you dollars and protect your business with legal safeguards. You should have an attorney right from the start of your business. Don't wait for an unfortunate situation to occur before finding an attorney. The importance of a good working relationship with one cannot be over stressed. Don't be sh...

  • What Form of Company for Your Business

    What Form of Company for Your Business

    Discussing your choices for the form of your company with an attorney is strongly recommended. There are service providers that will form and file organizations for a modest fee, but they are not legal advisors for your company nor capable of informing of taxable consequences and legal requirements. The most common company forms are: Sole Proprietor This legal structure is very common. It is very easy to setup, and there are fewer requirements to file applications with the government compared to...

  • Self-Service Pet Wash Business Planning

    Self-Service Pet Wash Business Planning

    Today I decided to post this article once again in GroomerTALK Magazine online after receiving another round of calls from business owners thinking about self-server. Usually they are not groomers. Instead they own pet stores, boutiques, feed stores or even coin-operated car washes. This article provides good general information and way to prepare a business plan for a self-service pet wash. The 1990's birthed a new concept for pet care, the self-service pet wash for D.I.Y. pet owners. ...

  • Why Buy an Existing Grooming Business

    Why Buy an Existing Grooming Business

    If you don't want to start a grooming business from scratch, buying an existing one may be your alternative. First of all, there are the plusses and minuses. The plusses are: Existing Customers: The customers and loyal clients of an existing business have already been developed. A well-planned transition will retain the clientele for the new owner, and thereby maintain the demand for services and cash flow from sales of services. Businesses started from scratch have much less initial cash f...

  • Business License & Name Reservations

    Business License & Name Reservations

    If you are planning a pet grooming business in your home, do NOT assume you do not need a business license. In fact, do not assume it is legal to have one in the home, even if someone else in your community is operating one. If they are, it likely is okay, but you must be certain. Regardless of whether you intend to open a home, mobile van or commercial location pet grooming business, personally make the trip down to the city or town hall, including the county offices, for those towns or cities...
