The deal has been signed with an experienced multi-brand franchisee.

Pet entertainment franchise brand MUTTS Canine Cantina has signed a multi-unit franchise deal with Cafrema (CF) Investments to bring six MUTTS locations to Phoenix, Arizona.

Ricardo Martinez of Cafrema (CF) Investments was drawn to the brand because of its combination of socializing and pet care; two things which he is invested in on a personal level.

“MUTTS is the perfect fit for our team, combining our love for dogs with our established background in the hospitality industry,” said Martinez. “We are excited to partner with such an innovative business and deliver exceptional customer service to an eager pet market nestled in the desert.

“At CF Group Investments, we understand the importance of family, and alongside the MUTTS team, we are excited to strengthen the connection between man and man’s best friend for years to come.”

MUTTS Canine Cantina was founded in 2013 by Kyle Noonan and Josh Sepkowitz, and has grown to 19 locations in development and some in operation in Dallas and Fort Worth, Texas. Locations under development are in areas like Austin, Allen, and El Paso in Texas, Tucson in Arizona, and Denver in Colorado.

“We are extremely excited to grow the MUTTS’ footprint in another new state,” said Michelle Boggs, managing partner of MUTTS Franchise. “Phoenix/Scottsdale experiences less rain or freezing weather than our Dallas and Ft. Worth locations, so we should see them pick up at least an additional 70 to 80 operating days for the cantina vs. our corporate stores. Of course, with a membership, our members can access the park 365 days a year using our gate technology with a bar code on their phone.”

MUTTS Canine Cantina has also partnered with Fransmart, which has worked with established franchise brands like Five Guys Burgers & Fries and QDOBA Mexican Grill.
