Why There’s Never Been a Better Time to be a Happy Cat Owner

The world of franchising is evolving, and the latest edition of the IFA’s Franchise Economic Impact Report sheds some light on some exciting industry trends and predictions. This annual report is compiled by the International Franchise Association (IFA) and FRANdata, one of the foremost market research firms in the franchising industry. It offers an industry-by-industry look at each of the main categories where franchise ownership is most common – everything from restaurants and hospitality to health and wellness and personal services. By classification, the pet care industry falls into the latter. And for existing franchisees, as well as those yet to come, there’s plenty to be excited about.

The Outlook for Personal Services Franchising

The 2024 report indicates that the personal services sector, which includes pet care, is expected to maintain its position as the industry’s top category for new franchise expansion – both in the sheer number of establishments and associated GDP. This category anticipates a 3.0% increase in units, which will top out at 125,000 locations and support an additional 610,000 new jobs. As for GDP output, experts believe it will expand by some 7.3% to over $45 billion in 2024. It’s certainly nice to know that the franchising industry’s largest trade organization and the leading market analysts believe personal service franchises to be the big winner this year.

Here’s a direct quote from the IFA’s report that provides the rationale for these optimistic numbers:

The pet services sector is expected to witness increased sales fueled by a growing pet population in the U.S., attributed to longer pet lifespans and a stable percentage of pet owners in total households. Moreover, as the younger generation embraces pet ownership, there is a rise in per-pet expenses, particularly in pet food and veterinary services, boosting the output for pet-related franchised businesses.
