A Group of Nine Accomplished Homeowners Join the Wag N’ Wash Brand
May 04, 2022 // Franchising.com // COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado – Wag N’ Wash Natural Pet Food & Grooming, a full-line specialty retail destination owned by independent North American pet retailer, Pet Supplies Plus today announced the refranchising of five Colorado stores.
Previously part of the company-operated portfolio of Wag N’ Wash stores, the Castle Rock, Littleton and three locations in Colorado Springs, Powers, Woodmen and Uintah are now owned by Finnegan Dexter LLC. Based in Lakeland, Florida, Finnegan Dexter owns and operates nine Pet Supplies Plus stores throughout the Sunshine State. Key members of the Finnegan Dexter LLC team, Ray Vigneault, Managing Partner, and Caitlin Greene, Owner, will work closely with Kim Ko Perez, current District Manager for all five stores, to oversee day-to-day operations and ensure that Wag N’ Wash remains a valued community partner.
“Wag N’ Wash holds such a special place in the lives of its neighbours. Adding the five stores to our portfolio aligns with the value we place on trusting relationships, which we know mean a lot to pet owners,” said Greene, who made a first-time investment as that franchised Pet Supplies Plus four years ago. “We saw an opportunity to expand our business through these existing Wag N’ Wash locations and we think it’s a perfect fit for our team. We really like the Wag N’ Wash concept, especially how well they’ve managed to link grooming and retail services in their stores.We plan to continue our growth nationally with Wag N’ Wash and Pet Supplies Plus, and welcome the idea of further expansion.
Founded in 2018, Finnegan Dexter LLC is an experienced pet retail franchisee with nine Pet Supplies Plus locations and another in development. With the new ownership of five Wag N’ Wash locations, Finnegan Dexter LLC now owns 14, soon to be 15, locations under the Pet Supplies Plus umbrella.
“We were thrilled to see Caitlin and her team take an almost immediate interest in the Wag N’ Wash brand. With extensive experience as Pet Supplies Plus franchisees, Caitlin and her team were perfect to support corporate store operations,” said Chris Rowland, CEO of Pet Supplies Plus. “We see a great opportunity for existing Pet Supplies Plus franchisees with our acquisition of the Wag N’ Wash brand to branch out with another notable pet retailer and follow in Caitlin’s footsteps.”
Wag N’ Wash is a place where pet sitters can find quality goods and services for their pet companions, and just be pets. Among the store’s offerings are various brands of all-natural dog and cat food, supplements, toys, and unique products. Plus, Wag N’ Wash’s do-it-yourself dog wash setup is designed to put convenience and fun into the “chore” of washing your dog. For neighbors looking for extra care for their pet, they can opt for a full-service grooming appointment. An added bonus is the variety of specialty treats that are offered.
