Calne-based We Love Pets has been named one of the top franchise options in the UK by industry magazine Elite Franchise 100.
Elite Franchise 100 recognises the sector’s brightest businesses and ranks them according to a broad range of criteria from their financial performance and heritage in the industry to their contribution to the community and the way they embrace innovation.
We Love Pets was placed at number 66 out of 900 UK franchises, putting the Heddington-based business in the top seven percent.
We Love Pets has been providing dog walking and pet sitting services to thousands of customers for 10 years.
Each branch is owned as a franchise, supported by a head office team of business, marketing and pet experts, vet nurse and solicitor.
They are the only franchisor to offer the City & Guilds dog walking and pet sitting qualification, working in partnership with Wiltshire College.
They have a number of branches across Swindon, Royal Wootton Bassett, Chippenham, and Marlborough.
"We’re delighted with the success of our franchisees, they have all complemented our ethos of looking after people and pets," said strategic director Jo White.
"We look forward to expanding across the rest of Wiltshire, and the UK and are looking for likeminded people who want to move away from office/corporate stress to run their own businesses."
