Will I be Successful?
The million-dollar question – right? That’s certainly our aim! Our experience has shown us that with the right personality, attitude and work ethic, our Dash DogWash Groomers are really successful. However, everyone’s idea of success is a little different – some join for the money; some for the lifestyle and some….just because they love the dogs. It works both ways, if you follow the system with a smile and a positive attitude, you should be on the path to success within a reasonable time frame.
Can I sell my franchise?
Yes. A franchise business can be sold like any other business. There are some special terms and conditions that need to be met as it is a franchise and covered by special laws.
