MARYLEBONE, U.K. - July 29, 2019 - PRLog -- Pet franchises are on their way up, and so is the investment appetite of franchisees. With hundreds of franchisors to choose from, decision making can be a challenge. This is where franchise4u's all-new, enhanced and free Franchise Directory comes in handy, with our selection of the best pet franchises for 2019 and bespoke features like in-depth franchisor profiles, star ratings and reviews from verified, real franchisees.

Running a pet-centric business may not be everyone's idea of channelling their entrepreneurial spirit, but in right hands, such opportunities are priceless. There are hundreds of pet businesses in the UK, providing a wide range of services and products – many of which have now successfully franchised their operations. Some have even gone on to replicate their local success at the international level, spreading their presence across continents.

What makes pet businesses a great fit for franchising is the simple, straightforward business model that can be easily adapted to changing needs. This allows the franchising business to tweak their business model as and when needed, even at a hyperlocal, territory level.

The market for pet services and products can be clearly defined through numbers. For example, 12 million UK households have at least one pet (the total pet population in the UK is estimated to be over 51 million). Of these, 26% of households have pet dogs, while 18% of households have pet cats.

The strength in these numbers is obvious, because the overall UK household spending on pets stood at over £4.61 billion in 2018, according to the Office For National Statistics. This spells a clear opportunity for pet businesses – one that individual investors and franchisees have been eager to get their hands on.

Over the last few years, pet franchises have been among the consistently well-performing businesses in the UK, thanks largely to the efficient marketing and cost-effective customer acquisition strategies developed by franchisors. Since most opportunities in this sector are local businesses, the initial investment required to buy a franchise unit is affordable, often less than £20,000.

As a franchisee, you can expect banks and other lenders to help you finance up to 50% of the initial investment (including the van, if applicable). Many top franchisors also provide finance assistance through their credit partners.

The comprehensive Franchise Directory at franchise4u ( compiles a well-documented list of UK-wide pet franchise opportunities. The directory is free and now available to all interested franchisees, with an added benefit of Franchise Reviews from existing franchise operators and owners, providing real and powerful insights into how the franchise really works.
