Thank you for your interest in presenting Hounds Town USA to your clients! As the Brand Manager, I work directly with consultants on a daily basis hosting education calls, answering questions, providing content and photos for ads, and whatever else you might need to be successful. Once you refer a client to Hounds Town USA they will be working specifically with our Development Director through the education process. We look forward to working with you and ultimately closing deals together!
Charlotte Wagner | Brand Manager
The Hounds Town USA Education Process
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.. If they do not schedule a call at this point, we email and text them again 3 days later and then 8 days after that.
2. INITIAL CALL
Once an initial call is scheduled, individuals are moved into this stage. If you would like to be part of the initial call, we are happy to host you- just let our Development Director know as he is scheduling!
3. FDD REVIEW
After a successful initial call, our Development Director moves your client to FDD Review. They receive 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.
4. SUPPORT SYSTEM OVERVIEW
During this step, your client will learn more about Hounds Town USA’s support team and systems. This is the last educational call before our Development Director introduces your client to a Hounds Town USA Franchise Owner and the Executive Team.
5. EXECUTIVE INTERVIEW
At this stage, our Development Director will host a final telephone interview with your client and the Executive Team to answer additional questions and discuss remaining details. Final approval to move forward from Hounds Town USA HQ will be made within 24 hours following this final call.
6. PEER REVIEW
During the Peer Review step, your client will have the opportunity to speak directly to Hounds Town USA Franchise Owners. This is a two-fold process. First, your client will ask questions about what it is like to own and operate a Hounds Town USA. Then, our Franchise Owners will get to learn a little about your client and provide feedback on whether they feel they are a good fit for the system.
7. DISCOVERY DAY
The last step in our process is to invite your client to a full day of hands-on discovery. Following an executive review of your client’s progress through the first six steps, we will invite them to Ronkonkoma, New York to spend the day with the Hounds Town USA Corporate Team. There, they will see the business model in action, tour locations, and meet the support staff.
8. FRANCHISE AWARDED

Features to Highlight When Presenting Hounds Town USA
Years of experience and deep knowledge are our greatest competitive edge. Our “Unrivaled Canine Expert” Founder Michael S. Gould has over 35 years of direct canine experience. The Hounds Town USA leadership team also includes Marianne Carrano Desczc, Franchise Owner Training Leader, who has formal training in animal behavior and has studied dog handling under Michael for years. This expertise is evident at Hounds Town USA in how we’ve modeled our concept after childcare solutions rather than other doggie daycare options.
By utilizing simple, cost-effective, and dog friendly materials, Hounds Town USA allows Franchise Owners to open their business starting at $265,800. This investment is significantly lower than other doggie daycare franchises in the country, allowing our owners to break even sooner and enjoy larger profit margins.
In 2019, our AUV was $893,531 for fully matured stores including those not at capacity. That’s a 236% sales to investment ratio! Not only that, but our Item 19 shows strong year-over-year sales growth averaging 27% for stores open one full year in 2018 and 2019. This is almost three times higher than the average growth rate of the already surging pet industry.
FLEXIBLE OWNERSHIP OPTIONS
Time is a finite resource and, for many people, the most precious commodity. Many of our owners are parents with young families and/or have other careers. Because of the simplicity of our business model and the minimal requirements for daily operations; most of our Franchise Owners operate as Semi-Absentee, allowing them to focus on pursuing other passions.
CUSTOMIZABLE REVENUE STREAMS
Hounds Town USA offers up to 10 revenue streams to pad and protect our Franchise Owner’s bottom line. There are five main services: interactive doggie daycare, boarding, grooming, retail sales, and a pet taxi. Franchise Owners also have the option to add vet care, cat care, educational classes, mobile grooming or even expand their retail sales at each location.
