Want to be the top dog of your own business? If you are self-motivated, enthusiastic, love dogs and meeting new personalities of both the 2 and four legged kind, then you could be our next franchisee.

At City Farmers Franchising we love dogs and always have. That’s why in 2008 we went in search for the ideal partners to complement our expanding retail chain with a new dog wash service. In January 2009, we joined forces with Fleastoppers / DoggyWash who also loved dogs and had already been providing a great service since 1992. That long history of customer satisfaction and a wealth of experience will continue to thrive under a brand new name of City Farmers Dog Wash.

What Makes Us Different?

City Farmers Dogwash is recognised as the dog wash experts but we’re so much more than that. We’re a trusted advisor and loving carer to our customer’s valued pet. As a Franchisee and as part of the ever expanding City Farmers retail network, you’ll have access to the best in pet health, nutrition and well-being needs so our customers can enjoy the many social and physical benefits of pet ownership. City Farmers Dogwash brings the specialty pet store right to the customer’s door, which keeps your phone ringing and your business growing.

Part of the City Farmers Retail Network

Being part of an expanding retail network has given City Farmers Dogwash new opportunities it would never have been able to otherwise undertake and added a whole new dimension to an already successful formula. This includes access to a much targeted retail customer base, increased buying power and access to exclusive products and suppliers previously only available to the large retail networks. This strong retail base puts us ahead of our competitors in the dogwash service area.

The large product range stocked by the retail stores is conveniently available for pick-up and delivery by City Farmers Dogwash Franchisees which enables you to meet customer requests at short notice. This hub and spoke model is what will drive your business forward over the coming years.
