The Mobile Dog Groomers

Franchise Opportunity

Who are The Mobile Dog Groomers?

The Mobile Dog Groomers business idea was started 5 years ago when Simon Robinson became dissatisfied with the way many franchises treat their license holders. It was thought that a much fairer system could be put into place where both Licensee and Licensor could be working together instead of working separately but under the same name. After a short time, it was realised that this was a larger project than had been first thought so his colleagues, Weronika (trainer), Jess (social media) Tonia and Lucy (marketing) were invited to make up the other side of the team.

The Mobile Dog Groomers will fit out the van that you purchased with a state-of-the-art mobile grooming salon. All the equipment that you need to become a professional groomer will be in the van just waiting to be used. At present it costs around £8k to convert a van into a mobile grooming salon so with that kind of investment we feel it necessary to point out that the van needs to have low mileage and in good condition. Every franchisee must complete a full-time 16-day training programme.
This training is essential and begins with 15 days working in a Mobile Grooming Salon (MGS) with an experienced trainer. You will be kitted out in a branded uniform and learn everything from washing and grooming dogs to cutting nails and filling in the diary. You will be trained on a 1-2-1 basis and remember your trainer has put many other groomers through the training course, and everyone has passed with flying colours so have confidence that you will succeed.

Further training for one day will be required and focuses on areas such as business management, administration, marketing, pet first aid and the systems needed to run a successful The Mobile Dog Groomers business.
The pet first aid course provides pet owners, students and professionals with essential skills and knowledge to deal with emergency situations. You will learn ways to deal with injuries, help prevent illness, as well as preserve the life of pets. Essential topics covered include CPR, shock, bleeding, bandaging, poisoning, fractures and much more!

The Mobile Dog Groomers are now expanding and we have a variety of new franchise opportunities right now in several locations. If you want to join with us as we continue our expansion across the UK, we would like to hear from you.

 

What does a The Mobile Dog Groomers Franchise consist of? What do you get as a Franchisee?

So many people think of starting their own business – not just for the financial rewards but for the opportunity to be your own boss and run your own life. But the downside is that although you get all the rewards, you also take the risks. Taking on a franchise within a proven operation reduces those risks substantially. By joining The Mobile Dog Groomers, you can reduce them even more!

 

Track Record of Success – We have a developed a method of doing business that works well and produces successful results.

Strong Brand – One of the biggest advantages of franchising is that the company is building a brand on a regional or national basis that should have value in the eyes of customers you’re trying to attract.

Training Programme – We have a training programme designed to bring you up to speed on the most successful methods to run the business. We have reference materials to assist you in dealing with whatever comes up while you’re running your business.

Ongoing Operational Support – We have staff dedicated to providing ongoing assistance to franchisees. You’re not alone when you’re building and running your business, and you can always call on experienced people when you hit a rough spot or want to share new ideas for growing the business.

Marketing Assistance – We will offer you marketing assistance to provide you with proven tools and strategies for attracting and retaining customers.

Purchasing Power – As a franchise you can take advantage of the buying power of the entire system to negotiate prices for everything you need at significantly lower levels than you could achieve as an independent operator.

Risk Avoidance – The biggest reason to buy a franchise is that, if you’re smart, it will help you avoid much of the risk of starting a new business.

Brilliant! First time dog owner and Jess looked after our nervous rescue dog wonderfully. I’ve since discovered she grooms a number of other dogs on the street so she’s going to be our go to groomer from now on. So handy being mobile. Thank you Jess!

Victoria Cartwright recommends The Mobile Dog Groomers - Jess.

These girls did an amazing job on my GSD he smelt and felt so cuddly. Thanks, will be in touch in the new year for another session. In the meantime, have a wonderful Christmas.

Penny Mendham To The Mobile Dog Groomers - Veronica

Simon was recommended to us a couple of years ago. We have found him to be punctual, happy and great with our Cockapoo Maggie.
Furthermore, he is conscientious and skilled in what he does, resulting in our dog looking and smelling fantastic.

He is professional and reliable, and I have already recommended him to other dog owners. A great service 10/10. Thank you.

Victoria Jacobs

Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Reliability.

We have been using Simon and his team since we bought our cavapoo in September 2019, he’s always professional and caring.

Our wee fluff ball always looks great after her groom. Thanks Simon.

Nicholas Honey

My dog met Jess for the first time today & I cannot stress enough how good Jess is! My dog is very nervous when it comes to grooming, but when he came back inside after being with Jess he was so calm & happy! He’s been strutting around the house like he’s won first in crufts since, not to mention his aftershave smells amazing! I won’t be using anyone else in the future. Thank you Jess!
