Dogtopia is a leading dog daycare, overnight, and spa franchise. They recently announced that they have reached 500 signed franchise agreements in the United States since new management took over in 2015. A historic development partnership, which will result in 33 new locations over the next several years, is propelling the organization past this milestone. A famous Los Angeles-based entrepreneurial family with decades of expertise controlling national franchise brands is behind the acquisition.
“By crossing this milestone, Dogtopia is ready to meet the all-time high demand for pet services, including daycare, in North America,” said Neil Gill, President and CEO of Dogtopia. “Thanks to great partners like this renowned Family Office, we are able to accelerate Dogtopia’s growth but also further our noble cause – to enhance the joy of pet parenthood and enable dogs to positively change our world – by bringing more dogs to more daycares throughout the U.S.”
The agreement with Dogtopia constitutes the family’s first direct investment as a franchisee, and Harold Ceron, an experienced operator with more than 30 years in franchising, has been appointed CEO.
