HOUNDS TOWN USA

I have had the pleasure of being a Brand Manager for Hounds Town USA since 2018 when they had just 6 franchise locations in NY and NJ. I instantly fell in love with the story, business model, company values, executive team, and desire for growth. Now, with over 60 franchise locations awarded across 17 states, Hounds Town USA continues to impress me with everything they do. It has been incredible to be a part of this growth as Hounds Town continues to expand nationwide!

HOUNDS TOWN CHARITIES

Each Hounds Town partners with local charities, rescues, and shelters to offer discounted doggie daycare, boarding, and other services to dogs waiting for their “furever” homes.

“Hounds Town really checks all of the boxes in the pet industry. Primarily, the initial investment is much more affordable than any of the competition. On top of that, no other doggie daycare franchise is based on more canine expertise than Hounds Town USA.”

FranServe Consultant

“If you have a client interested in the pet industry, look no further! Do not be concerned that it is still considered an emerging brand. There really is no other doggie daycare concept out there with financials as impressive.”

IFPG Consultant

“Hounds Town Development Director, Rob, did a fantastic job! While some other development teams were rushing my client through the process, Rob was incredibly patient, listened to what he had to say, and made him feel comfortable.”

TYN Consultant

“The communication with the Development Director, Rob Taylor, throughout the entire discovery process was excellent! He kept me up to speed each step of the way so that I could help them to be prepared for the next stage.”

BAI Consultant

“The dog psychology knowledge of the Founder is incredibly impressive! I appreciate that all of their policies and procedures are based on his expertise. On top of that, the response of the corporate team to COVID-19, quickly adapt their offerings, was quite refreshing to see!”

IFPG Consultant

“Of course, Hounds Town’s financials speak for themselves, as there really is no other doggie daycare franchise with as low of an investment level and as high of revenues as Hounds Town. But it is more than just that. This brand really feels like a family.”

FranServe Consultant

“My ability to speak to how Hounds Town has reacted to the COVID-19 crisis has been incredibly positive right now. I will absolutely continue to show this brand and am looking forward to a few more placements this year!”

FranServe Consultant

“The supportive culture of the brand really sets it apart from all others. This was evident throughout the entire process working with President, Jackie Bondanza, from the coordination of the site visits and virtual discovery day to her flexibility in territory selection, and everything else.”

TYN Consultant

“Hounds Town has their business model down! I cannot fail to mention how wonderful it was to work with Hounds Town President, Jackie Bondanza, as well. I definitely recommend other brokers show this brand!”

BAI Consultant

“I love that I have full confidence in the brand to the point where I know when I send over a candidate, the process will be seamless, the validation will be 100% positive, and my clients will have a great opportunity for long term success!”

FranServe Consultant

“I am incredibly comfortable sending my clients to the Development Director, Rob Taylor, to take them through the education process. We have a great relationship. He consistently communicates with me every step of the way as my clients progress.”

Once we receive your referral, we enter your client’s information into our CRM and park them at this stage. Within 15 minutes of adding them to the CRM, they will receive an email and a text message asking them to schedule a call with the Hounds Town USA Development Director.

BUSINESS MODEL OVERVIEW

Before the initial call, our Development Director asks that your client reviews our Business Model Overview webinar that dives deeper into the business model, support, marketing, and more.

INITIAL CALL

During this phone appointment, our Development Director will get to know your client’s background, qualifications, and goals while also answering any questions they have on the business model.

UNIT ECONOMICS

After the initial call, our Development Director will walk your client through our Unit Economics Calculator. This tool will help them estimate the potential profitability and sustainability of a Hounds Town USA business.

Your client receives a link to our FDD and during this call, our Development Director walks them through the entire document and answers questions to make sure they feel comfortable.

MARKET RESEARCH

Here we dive into the viability of your client’s market in supporting a Hounds Town business. Your client will gain a better understanding of potential businesses to partner with and the demographics of their area.

CLEARANCE CALL

Graduating through to this stage means your client has earned a scheduled phone meeting with our President, Jackie Bondanza. This is their opportunity to sell their story and abilities to Jackie, as well as address any questions they have on the model.

PEER REVIEW

Your client will have the opportunity to speak directly to Hounds Town Owners. This is a two-fold process; your client gets to ask questions about what it’s like to own and operate a Hounds Town and our Franchise Owners get to learn a little about your client, providing feedback on whether they feel they are a good fit for the system. We hold group peer review calls two times per week that are also recorded and added to a password-protected page on our website that your client will gain access to.

DISCOVERY DAY

The last step in our process is to invite your client out for a full day of hands-on discovery. Discovery Day is held either at our corporate location in Ronkonkoma, NY, or at one of our newer locations in Sanford, FL. They will spend the day with the Hounds Town USA Corporate Team, see the business model in action, tour locations, and meet the support staff.
