An interview with Zoom Room COO, Mark Van Wye
The aptly-named Franchise Hound interviews Zoom Room COO, Mark Van Wye, about the success of this eco-friendly, solution-oriented dog training business, including advice for aspiring entrepreneurs.
Franchise Hound is an excellent resource both for entrepreneurs contemplating the launch of their own franchise, as well as for those interested in becoming franchisees of existing franchise businesses.
Reporter Kristianna Del Grande conducted a highly-detailed interview with one of the Zoom Room’s founders to explore the challenges and successes of this business.
FH: In the four years that you’ve been operating what have been some of your successes?
MVW: We have gotten a great deal of positive reviews for our trainers. Many are considered the best in town. Our customers also say our curriculum is the most effective way to train dogs. And this year we were named the Best Pet Boutique in L.A. We’re not the stereotypical pet boutique so we were proud to receive that recognition. We don’t carry rhinestones. Everything we sell is eco-friendly, made in the U.S.A. and has a practical use.
Beyond the number of locations and clients, one of the biggest components of our business is raising awareness about rescue organizations and general issues of animal welfare. We’re proud to be working closely with so many rescue organizations. We’ve helped to raise thousands of dollars for charities and promote responsible pet ownership. As we continue to expand we’ll be able to reach a larger audience with those messages.
