Dog agility is the fastest-growing dog sport in the U.S., according to the AKC, and with the growing presence and popularity of televised agility competitions on Animal Planet and other networks, more and more dog owners are becoming aware of the fun and excitement of agility training.
The Zoom Room is not a drop-off training facility; this is one of the most critical aspects of our business model that sets us apart from competitors. We train owners to train their dogs, and to more deeply understand, communicate and bond with their pets. Everyone knows that a tired dog is a happy dog; we also believe that a smart, well-trained dog is an even happier dog – not to mention one with much much much happier owners. In our experience, placing an emphasis on dog agility training is an extremely effective means to reach this goal.
For us, dog agility is also an integral part of our brand identity, as agility training appeals to our core clients: active lifestyle dog owners. Although the Zoom Room also offers countless other classes – dog obedience, puppy preschool, dog tricks training, and even Pup-lates® – as soon as clients step foot into the Zoom Room they are instantly aware of our brand.
The atmosphere is a lot like an upscale gym or fitness center. Where other dog businesses emphasize the “foofy” and the “bling,” we emphasize the “sporty.” Our carefully-selected retail section reflects this brand identity centering on agility training and fitness. One foot inside and you know you’re in for a workout.
Dogs love to party. And dog owners love to mingle. Dog behaviorists call it socialization. We call it fun.
The Zoom Room provides full catering services to the dog community – an indoor dog park and playground for puppy parties, Bark Mitzvahs, dog birthday parties, children’s theme parties, even pet commitment ceremonies.
A franchise is ideal for people who want to go into business for themselves, but not by themselves. As a franchisee, you’re your own boss, sure, but you’ve managed to steer clear of the pitfalls of perfecting a business model that actually works, and wasting your savings and your sleep in month after month of trying to reinvent the wheel. As a franchisor, the Zoom Room has already invented this particular wheel; now we just want to put you into the driver’s seat so you can zoom off to owning and running a business that will reward you in every sense of the word.
The Zoom Room was designed to serve a metropolitan community. While it’s theoretically possible to locate a Zoom Room in a more remote area, our current focus is on developing franchises in major metro areas.
You only need 2,800 square feet to open a Zoom Room – and our zoning is the same as plain vanilla retail, so you’ll have the pick of the litter when finding the perfect home for your Zoom Room.
