Well Hello There, Pet Lover.

Are you are looking for an opportunity that combines your appreciation for wellness and pets?  Would you like to capitalize on a continuously growing market?  If the answer is yes, you are heading in the right direction.

Global Pet Foods has been franchising since 1976 and has become an established essential Canadian retailer with almost 200 stores and offers a truly unique business opportunity with a strong financial model.  For over 44 years customers have been able to walk into a Global Pet Foods store and be confident they are getting the very best service, with the widest selection of wholesome and quality nutrition on the market today.

Why the Pet Industry?  It’s a Growing, Dynamic Market

In 2019, Canada was estimated to have spent $9.2 billion on their pets, up from $8.84 billion (actual) in 2018.  What is fueling the growth year after year?  The contemporary trend towards the humanizing of pets shows that pets are undeniably becoming part of the family.

The millennial generation is overtaking baby-boomers in pet ownership and is on their way up in terms of income and spending.  Meanwhile, the retired are living longer, healthier lives than ever before and Generation Y is delaying parenthood, often first becoming pet parents, while sparing little expense when it comes to the comforts in making sure their companion feels loved.

Over 50% of all households own a pet.  This amounts to a sizable percentage of Canada’s population that has the money, time and emotional space to treat a pet as if it were a beloved child.
