“This is just the beginning for our expansion in Georgia,” said Tim Vogel, CEO.
Scenthound, a U.S. dog grooming franchise that focuses on the skin, coat, ears, nails, and teeth (SCENT) of our furry friends, is opening four new locations in the Atlanta Metro area this spring.
These will be the first of at least 10 units to develop in the Atlanta area, with the brand planning for as many as 50 centers in the coming years.
Bill Gray, one of the new owners, was a Coca-Cola executive before he decided to open his own business. He recognized the love owners have for their pets, and knew this opportunity was the right move.
“Scenthound allows individuals like me, who are looking to become entrepreneurs and to give back to their local communities, the chance to partner with an amazing thought-leading brand,” said Gray. “I am thrilled to be able to unveil the brand in Atlanta.”
Franchisee Doug Johnston and his partner Ann Sander will be opening the Johns Creek West location this spring, along with two other locations in North Fulton that are set to open over the next year. Lori and Ken Bonifay, who will be opening the South Forsyth Scenter, also have agreed to open another two locations in the area.
“With at least ten Scenters opening in Atlanta, we are excited to make a big splash in this new area,” said Tim Vogel, CEO. “This is just the beginning for our expansion in Georgia and we are excited to watch our franchise partners take care of the dogs in their communities and keep them healthy. As we grow, we are able to continue to remove barriers so that people can love and connect with their dogs every day.”
Vogel founded Scenthound in 2015 after spending more than 10 years running both a mobile grooming business and local grooming shops, seeing first-hand the shortcomings within the booming pet industry and the lack of education surrounding dog grooming.
Now, Scenthound has taken hold in the States, and by Spring the brand will have 14 ‘Scenters’ open, and 41 further locations in development across seven states.
