We’re thrilled to announce that Dogtopia has once again made Entrepreneur Magazine’s Franchise 500 list. In their new 2022 ranking, Dogtopia came in at 51, rising three spots from last year and marking our highest placement to date.

Since 1979, Entrepreneur has published its annual list of the Top 500 franchises in the world. The ranking, which is based on a number of factors including costs and fees, size and growth, support, financial strength, and stability, has become one of the most respected sources of franchise information in the industry.

We are delighted to once again be included on this prestigious list. In spite of the challenges franchises experienced during the pandemic, Dogtopia continued to grow and thrive, a reflection of how the $103.6 billion pet industry is not only recession-proof but also pandemic-proof.

“The past year has been one of the most challenging for businesses in recent memory, which made putting together our 43rd annual Franchise 500 list more enlightening than ever,” says Entrepreneur Editor in Chief Jason Feifer. “The companies named to this year’s list showed us how being resilient, supportive, and nimble can help navigate extraordinary challenges and also underscore the grit and innovation that define entrepreneurship.”
