Listen to what our franchisees have to say about partnering with Pet Valu


“Owning a pet food and supply store had been a dream of ours for the past 10 years. Starting from scratch would have been an insurmountable challenge but in buying a Pet Valu franchise, we got immediate name recognition as well as access to all of the best suppliers and product without having to spend years building those relationships. We made a profit on our first day and continue to grow the business month after month.”

Bart and Shelley Garner – Franchisee since 2010 | London, ON

“One of the best things about owning a Pet Valu franchise is the opportunity to build a business with a partner who is truly invested in your success and is willing to help out in any way they can. We’ve built something of our own while giving us the freedom to start our own family. We’ve become a part of our local community which provides us with a great sense of accomplishment and pride”

Scott and Cassandra MacLeod – Franchisee since 2011 | Winnipeg, MB

“Pet Valu expects franchisees to work hard to drive the business but the field support personnel are not afraid to roll up their sleeves and help out. In the short space of five months everyone we deal with in the franchise support group has on some occasion gone above and beyond our expectations in solving problems.”

Wilf Clarke and Lina Goncharenko – Franchisee since 2010 | Halifax, NS

“As a franchisee, I feel I am a valuable partner with my franchisor. We work together to improve and grow our businesses. Every day I am able to go to work and interact with my customers and help them with all their pet challenges and needs. I am very fortunate to work in an industry that allows me to work one-on-one with customers who we enjoy and are committed to their pets.”

Jamie Dale Franchisee since 2004 | Gravenhurst, ON

“Owning my franchise is a second career for me. I bought it fourteen years ago so that I would have something to do after I retired from teaching. It was a natural fit for me since my hobby was breeding German Shepherds. At a point in their lives when most people my age are contemplating retirement, I have no such intention. I enjoy the challenges and the rewards of owning my Pet Valu franchise too much to give it up.”
