Here at Dogtopia, the nation’s fastest growing pet franchise, we’re thrilled to announce our plans to open 14 new locations in Seattle, bringing over 300 jobs to the area. These new locations are part of Dogtopia’s expansion plan to create more than 400 units by 2021. The first Seattle location debut will be situated just down the street from the Microsoft campus at the end of the year.

We are very proud of our growth and want to continue to set the industry standard by offering individualized care for pups in a fun, safe, and comfortable environment. Alex Samios, Vice President of Franchise Development at Dogtopia, explains “With our proven business model and extensive franchise experience, we have been able to build an exceptional support team that provides our franchisees the training and systems to deliver high operational standards that cultivates our brand loyalty and growth strategy.”

As the U.S. pet industry is predicted to surpass $100 billion by 2021, Dogtopia is set to be the largest franchise in the pet industry.
