Dogtopia is thrilled to be included in 2019’s Fast & Serious, Franchise Times’ annual ranking of the 40 smartest-growing franchises.

To determine their Fast & Serious picks, Franchise Times uses a 10-point formula to identify fast-growing franchise systems that also have staying power, taking into account factors such as percentage sales growth, percentage unit growth, dollar sales growth, and numerical unit growth over the past three years.

Dogtopia ranks at No. 30 on the list, with CEO Neil Gill crediting the brand’s success to the talented team of franchisees and support office employees. “Start with a realistic plan, find the best talent with appropriate skills, ensure you are adequately capitalized and understand the businesses box metrics,” said Gill. “Then keep the team focused to deliver on the plan.”
