Zoom Room – Franchise of the Month

Zoom Room is an indoor dog training gym with an emphasis on socialization and training the pet parents.  “We don’t train dogs. We train the people who love them.” The three key revenue streams in this business are: dog training classes, socialization events, and retail products. (TRAIN. SOCIALIZE. SHOP.)

The investment is quite low compared to other pet concepts (see more details below).

Zoom Room can be opened with a small footprint (3000 sq ft), minimal staff (2 people), and is zoned absolutely anywhere. As clients accompany their dogs at all times, liability is extremely limited. This model’s profitability is driven by passionate brand loyalty. Clients are retained for years with lifetime spending almost 100x the cost to acquire. Zoom Room boasts more 5-star ratings than any other dog training business and a willingness-to-recommend score that at the level of an Apple or Amazon.
