Special Franchise Focus: Children and Pets

Franchises across Canada are providing essential resources and support for growing children and pets

Throughout the decades, families have adapted, grown, and changed as new generations grow up and raise their own families.

For some, a giggly toddler and a furry friend go hand-in-hand, as adults of all ages opt to have children or adopt a pet to add love and energy to their household. During the COVID-19 pandemic, children’s services and pet care have remained essential services, creating recession-proof industries for business owners. While many have had to forgo their favourite hobbies or lifestyle habits with the changes and difficulties of the past year, two things remain the same: Canadians love their children and pets!

These two industries, though separate in their own ways, do have similarities in the maintenance, care, and support that parents (pet parents included!) must maintain to provide healthy, happy, and thriving lives for the animals and children in their homes. That makes for excellent franchising opportunities to provide services for our growing population who will increasingly need pet care, grooming, supplies, and more, as well as child care, tutoring and education, and kid-friendly products and services.

Read on to learn why investing in a children’s or pet service franchise is a strong opportunity for franchise owners!
