Yes. We currently recommend either the Citroen Dispatch or Berlingo (or the Peugeot equivalents of the Expert or Partner). Each vehicle will be required to be fitted out with safe secure pet friendly cages manufactured by a nationally approved company. The cages have non-spill water bowls and blind dividers and can be configured in different formats. Each van should have fresh air extract and intake and be fitted with many other Petpals ‘fit for the job’ accessories. The Petpals branding on the vehicle is undoubtedly one of our most successful forms of advertising in the local community.
Included in your franchise fee is a substantial budget for launch advertising and ongoing activity during your first year. You will be heavily involved in the planning and co-ordination of this activity.
The company has a bespoke, mandatory national insurance plan, that we insist every franchisee has, that covers pet care, Public Liability and Employers Liability. This is fully explained once a franchisee joins the Petpals team.
* PLEASE NOTE – The figures provided in the illustration represent the average turnover of new franchisees across our UK network. The network performance can vary from year to year and also by the individual franchise area. The turnover of the franchise area you select is dependent upon many factors, including your own personal performance. There is no guarantee that you will achieve these figures and nor is it intended that you should rely on them as a warranty or guarantee. For the avoidance of doubt, turnover figures represent total gross sales before deduction of operating costs. As a prospective franchisee you should take your own independent financial and accountancy advice in consideration of the franchise proposition.
