Process, fees and finances

Buying a pet-care franchise isn’t like paying for goods online – you don’t just click and collect. It’s more of a journey and we want to ensure you’re prepared for what you’re taking on.

We want to ensure we have the right people on the team, so we can continue building a successful pet care brand. We only want the best so we can continue to provide an excellent service to our valued customers and their lovely pets. This means our recruitment and selection process is thorough. 

You’ll need to research franchising – how is works and if it’s suitable. If you think a We Love Pets franchise is for you, there is a six step process which takes you to franchise launch:

Step 1: Register your interest

Tell us a bit about yourself and the area you are interested in. You’ll need to complete our registration form to register your interest as we need to know quite a bit about you.

Step 2: We’ll be in touch

If your preferred area is available, we’ll give you a call so we can have a chat about a potential franchise and you can ask any questions (don’t worry most people have lots of questions!).

Step 3: Informat chat

The next steps are meeting in person with one of our friendly support team. We’ll explain the franchise in more detail. You’ll have the opportunity to ask more questions.

Step 4: Full application

A full application process will include a police, reference and credit check.

Step 5: Formal meeting

If your application is successful you’ll see us at Head Office for a meeting and you’ll be invited to spend time with an existing franchisee.

Step 6: Launch

The whole process normally takes around 2/3 months. Then you can start your training and your new exciting journey as a pet business owner!

Depending on how much effort you put in, you could have a £70,000 turnover by your second year.

Fees and finances

The licence fee for a start-up We Love Pets franchise is £9,999 and includes:

The ongoing monthly franchisee fee is then 8% of turnover, which includes:

HSBC will consider lending We Love Pets franchisees up to 50% of the total start-up costs including working capital, supported by a business plan and a good credit history. We can tell you who to contact during the application process.
