Learn About Pet Supplies Plus Franchises
Your Pet’s Favorite Store Can Be Your Path To A More Rewarding Future
An Unparalleled Business Opportunity In A Growth Industry
From a single store opened in Redford, Michigan in 1988, Pet Supplies
Plus has grown to become the third largest chain in the specialty pet products
industry. Today, there are over 220 franchised PSP stores serving pets and their
families in 20 states. We’re proud of the fact that most of our franchisees have
opened more than one store; it tells us that we must be doing a good job helping
them achieve their career goals. We invite you to learn more about PSP to see if
we can build a prosperous future together.
The PSP Difference
Pet Supplies Plus pioneered the concept of bringing supermarket style
retailing to the specialty pet industry. Our stores have the look and feel of
modern supermarkets, with wide, high-traffic perimeter tracks, thematic center
aisles, clear overhead signage, shopping carts, and plenty of convenient parking
close to the entrance.
Most of our stores are located in “point positions” in neighborhood shopping
centers, and are situated on the right hand side of the road on homeward bound
commuting routes. This makes it quick and easy for customers to pull into PSP
and pick up pet food and supplies on their way home from work.
Our stores are typically 8,000-10,000 square feet, yet they stock the same
extensive selection as warehouse style superstores that measure two or three
times their size. Our “secret?” Most PSP stores get deliveries from an
established network of distributors twice a week, so we’re able to offer the
same selection without using a lot of valuable retail space on back up
The end result is that our customers can shop at a more convenient store without
sacrificing selection or price, while our franchisees are able to enjoy the
lower overhead associated with a smaller location.
Pets Love Us Too
PSP stores have also been designed to make shopping easier for pets. We actively
encourage our customers to bring their leashed pets along with them when they
visit PSP, and we regularly hold special events for pets and the people who love
them. We even give pets treats every time they visit. No wonder PSP has become
famous as “your pet’s favorite store.”
