Fast growing veterinary brand PetWellClinic announced today that it will be expanding into Detroit, Michigan following the signing of a 10-unit deal. This will mark the first time the pet wellness franchise is expanding into the Midwestern United States and taking the brand to over 140 units in development in just two years of franchising.
Experienced Multi-Unit franchisees Jake Atchoo and Blake George will run the facility with not only experience but inspiration from a long line of relatives who were also entrepreneurs.
"Bringing PetWellClinic to the Detroit area is personal for us. Similar to those at Goldfish Swim School, we see the passion clients and workers in this industry have for their pets," said Atchoo, in the release."The majority of families in the U.S. have a dog or cat, so investing in PetWellClinic was a no-brainer when we saw the value it could bring to our home community. Not only is the concept saving pet owners precious time and money, but these ten clinics will also help provide a plethora of employment opportunities to the area."
Atchoo and George began their journey into the world of franchises by owning and operating 3 Goldfish Swim Schools, where they will continue to be heavily involved in its operations. However, the pair is excited for their next journey into franchising within veterinary medicine.
"PetWellClinic offers a career option for those in the veterinary field who are seeking more work-life balance with normal operating hours, and less burnout," said George.1 "In providing services that can otherwise backlog traditional veterinary clinics, PetWellClinic is the perfect complement to other vets in the area, helping prevent pet owners from having to sit through an hours-long wait at a walk-in clinic or wait weeks to schedule an appointment."
The first locations will target the Tri-Country area, specifically Royal Oak, Sterling Heights, and Farmington Hills/West Blood with plans to open PetWellClinics as far as Ann Arbor. At these locations, the community will have access to walk-in appointments to provide preventative care for pets, including checkups, treatments of minor ailments and chronic conditions, and vaccinations.
