Overview

Imagine earning $893,531* in average gross revenue...AND getting to do something you love every day. For Hounds Town USA Franchise Owners, that dream scenario is reality! Hounds Town USA gives people the opportunity to escape the typical 9-5 grind and own a business in a thriving, recession-resilient industry, all while helping dogs live their best lives.

Hounds Town USA is different from any other doggie daycare or overnight boarding facility you’ve ever seen. How? Simple- we put dogs FIRST!

Unlike other high-end pet care franchises, who pad their business models- and their customers’ invoices- with unnecessary bells and whistles designed to impress humans, Hounds Town USA maintains a singular focus on making dogs happy. Our thoughtfully-designed locations allow dogs to follow their natural pack instincts and interact with one another in a safe, well-supervised environment.

Most importantly, we do NOT breed-discriminate and welcome dogs of all shapes, sizes, and breeds to our facilities following an initial evaluation.

Our Founder, Mike Gould, began Hounds Town USA after a long, rewarding career as a Head Trainer for the NYPD K-9 Unit. Since the early 80s, Mike’s been studying dogs and learning what makes them tick. Together with President Jackie Bondanza, Mike has developed an interactive doggie daycare experience centered around their immense love for dogs, as well as their deep understanding of what makes them tick.

Dogs spend fun-filled days at Hounds Town USA running, jumping, sniffing, playing, and just being themselves in “packs” grouped by size, breed, and temperament....and their humans couldn’t be happier!

Why Choose Us?

Every morning, our Franchise Owners wake up excited to go to work, and go to bed every night knowing they made a difference. Here’s what else makes owning a Hounds Town a PAW-some career move!

High Potential Returns (For a Relatively Low Investment)- Last year, our Franchise Owners averaged $893,531 in gross revenue.* For $366K less than the average initial investment of competing franchises in the pet care space, you have the potential to see $200K MORE in average gross revenue!

Potential for Quick ROI- Hounds Town USA franchises average an impressive 236% sales-to-investment ratio, meaning that you potentially can earn back your initial investment- and then some- in your first year of business!

Doggie Daycare Isn’t Going Anywhere!- Did you know that in the 2008-2009 recession, pet care spending actually soared by 17%? This is because people tend to prioritize the needs of their pets, even during times of economic downturn. Additionally, 68% of U.S. households currently own a pet, and with the recent surge in pet adoptions, we expect this number to increase even more in the coming years.

Take Your Career Off-Leash- Tired of spending your days cooped up at a desk? Hounds Town USA Franchise Owners love having a career that brings them personal fulfillment and joy- and allows them to enjoy a healthy work-life balance.

Own a Business...Not the Problems- Owning an independent doggie daycare business comes with its fair share of hassles and headaches. By investing in an established business like Hounds Town USA, you can count on ongoing support from our experienced Corporate team rather than face the stress and considerable risk of going it alone.

It’s Your Chance to Make an Impact- Hounds Town USA is all about giving back. Through non-profit organizations such as Hounds Town Charities and the Fresh Air Foundation, we give our Franchise Owners a chance to get involved with local pet rescue groups and animal shelters and make a true difference in the lives of dogs in their communities.

Ideal Candidate

Our Franchise Owners are the heart and soul of our business, and we see each and every one of them as part of our family. If you can answer ‘yes’ to these questions, we want you in our pack!

Do you live for wet noses and slobbery kisses? Are you the kind of person who has to pet every dog you see? Do you love the idea of incorporating your love for dogs into your career?

Do you love thinking outside the box to effectively find solutions to problems? Are you willing to put in the necessary hours to grow a successful business?

Do you possess that entrepreneurial spirit? Do you have a knack for sales or business? Do you have experience in a leadership or management role?

Are you looking for a way to escape the corporate grind and take control of your financial future by investing in yourself? Still in a full-time career that you love but looking for a semi-absentee opportunity that can help you fulfill your goals of entrepreneurship?

History

Before he became the celebrated Mayor of Hounds Town, Founder Mike Gould served in the U.S. military during the Vietnam War prior to becoming a police officer with the NYPD. In 1982, Mike began his canine career when he was selected from hundreds of candidates to become a founding member of the Department’s elite K-9 Unit. Through this experience, as well as his deployment to Naples, Italy to head up the Military Working Dog Program following the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Mike discovered a passion for learning and understanding canine behavior that defined the rest of his career.

After retiring from the Nassau County Police Department as Commanding Officer, Michael sought to deepen his passion for dogs. His unique experience and understanding of what makes dogs tick organically led him to open his first doggie daycare and dog sitting facility. In 2001, Mike opened his first dog boarding location in Port Jefferson, Long Island. After a successful first few years in business, Michael decided to reinvest some of his profits into a second facility, and after seeing a remarkably similar level of growth, he realized that he had created something very special.

After years of carefully testing and tweaking the Hounds Town business model, as well as opening successful locations in Ronkonkoma and Farmingdale, NY, Mike, along with President Jackie Bondanza, launched the Hounds Town USA franchise nationwide in 2015. We’re on a mission to partner with like-minded entrepreneurs across the country while maintaining our original objective of making Hounds Town USA home of the happiest dogs on Earth!

Training And Support

We Take the Concept of “Pack Mentality” Seriously!

Our Franchise Owners are more than just business partners to Mike, Jackie, and the rest of the Hounds Town USA Corporate team- they’re part of the pack! We go above and beyond to provide our Franchise Owners with fast, comprehensive support for virtually every situation they face.

Not sure how to get the word out about your new Hounds Town location? President Jackie Bondanza and her Corporate Support Team offer one-on-one guidance to help you effectively market your Hounds Town backed by the nation’s #1 franchise-facing PR and SEO/digital marketing firms!

Uneasy about the logistics of opening a doggie daycare facility? Our comprehensive Real Estate support team helps you source the perfect location, assists with all the nuts and bolts of the construction process, and keeps abreast of any special permits or licenses you may need to open your business- all while keeping buildout costs as low as possible!

Nervous about having little to no experience in the pet care industry? We don’t require our Franchise Owners to have a background in doggie daycare for a reason- our robust initial training program covers all the basics of owning a Hounds Town USA, including 30 hours of classroom education at our Ronkonkoma headquarters and 67 hours of hands-on experience at your location once you open!

Afraid your support system will dry up once your Grand Opening has come and gone? Not a chance- our Franchise Owners never have to worry about a lack of ongoing support! Not only will you be assigned a personal “buddy” to act as your mentor and answer any questions you may have, but you can always reach out to anyone at Hounds Town Corporate for a quick response!
