Orlando, FL, United States, 2012/08/01 - Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming, a leader in retail pet supplies and service, has grown to 26 franchise locations and has added grooming to 22 stores - WoofGangBakery.com.

With corporate offices in Orlando, Florida, Woof Gang Bakery & Grooming introduced a new store prototype in 2011 that reduces building costs and streamlines the construction process, enabling franchisees to better serve their customers. New Woof Gang Bakery stores typically include Woof Gang Grooming and some Woof Gang Doggie Daycare as components to their business, providing additional services to customers and increased revenue to the franchise.
“We have a terrific group of franchisees who continue to grow and develop their stores. Each year they continue to raise the bar even higher in terms of sales and operations,” said Paul Allen, chief development officer and vice president for Woof Gang Inc.
“It’s an exciting time for us as we continue to strengthen our footprint in the pet industry and grow our brand. We’ve built our reputation on establishing close relationships with the communities we serve. Simply put, they trust us to deliver the products and services they want,” added Allen.
