Franchise Gator Accolades: Top Emerging Brand
Published on: March 29, 2019
Franchise Gator ranked Wag N’ Wash Natural Food & Grooming as the #1 Emerging Franchise Brand for 2019. Wag N’ Wash also ranked as #14 on Franchise Gator’s Fastest Growing Franchise list and #97 in the Top 100 Franchise list.
Eric Bell, General Manager of Franchise Gator said, “Franchise Gator has been publishing the Top 100, as well as the accompanying Fastest Growing and Top Emerging franchises list, for 6 years now. It’s very rare for us to come across a franchise system that has all of the qualifications to appear on all 3 lists in one year like Wag N’ Wash did in 2019. They check off a lot of the boxes. Their FDD notes strong growth both in units and financially, exactly what you want to see from an emerging brand. Their presence on all 3 Franchise Gator lists is well deserved. Congratulations to Wag N’ Wash!”
“We are incredibly excited to be recognized by Franchise Gator! Being named as the #1 Emerging Franchise Brand is a testament to our PAWprietors (franchise partners) and WHQ team (Wag Headquarters) who strive every day to enhance the lives of companion pets across the planet. We look forward to an exciting 2019 and to keep ‘em wagging,” said Wag N’ Wash Natural Food & Grooming President & Pack Leader Rob Flanagan.
This is the sixth year that the online franchise directory has published a Top Emerging ranking. The list was created to help identify developing franchises with 50 or fewer units that have shown promising signs of strong growth. The focus of the Top Emerging list is not just to highlight brands on the rise, but also at a price point that was in line with the average prospect exploring franchise opportunities. Rankings are based on information provided in Franchise Disclosure Documents.
“Strong growth is one of many areas a prospective franchisee can look at when evaluating a franchise brand,” said Eric Bell, General Manager at Franchise Gator. “Total unit count is important as every franchise company’s mission is to increase their footprint as it makes the whole system much healthier.”
In 2018 Franchise Gator named Wag N’ Wash as #4 on the Emerging Franchise Brand list and #48 on the Fastest Growing Franchise rankings. 2018 Franchise Gator Honors
