Barking Mad-FlipFlop Dogs - Version 2

 

UK’s Barking Mad Social Media Manager, Richard Darcy and FlipFlop Dogs’ Jordan Miltz sat down to talk about what they provide for their franchisees, customers and how they continue to grow their brands through Social Media. The FlipFlop model is based on the award-winning Barking Mad franchise. After spending several months learning from Barking Mad’s founders, FlipFlop founders started the franchise in Ohio. Almost four years later, Barking Mad and FlipFlop meet again, in sunny Marco Island, FL. During this time we spoke about our business strengths and bounced ideas off one another. We had several great meetings and felt rejuvenated with numerous concrete ideas for future plans.

 

During this time, Richard and Jordan discussed their social media tasks, tools and best practices on a franchisor and franchisee level. Take a listen to the podcast below, by pressing play, and you will hear an engaging conversation on what we provide for our network partners and how you could become more social as well.

Five Keys to Happiness

Calendar Posted on Jan 28, 2015 by tmiltz

Finding Happiness through Five Factors

Research shows what factors into your happiness

 

team2

 

A recent Business Insider report suggested the main keys to happiness.  Everyone strives for happiness in their life but not all are able to achieve it. Without a doubt, we go through happy and sad times based on the circumstances of our life events. Focusing on the factors that you can control, there is a reason why business owners, franchisees and entrepreneurs are happier than those working for at a routine, office job. This study is important to show how changes in your life can lead you to living a happier life!

 

There are five main factors that psychologist have discovered over the years that make you happy: achieving goals, meaningful work, experiences, exercise and seeing the people you love. Here’s our inside look on what these five factors mean in conjunction with being a FlipFlop franchise.  Writing down achievable goals and seeing them cultivate makes you feel accomplished and successful! At FlipFlop, we are consistently getting together as a franchise network to talk about our goals, explain our plans to achieve them and then discuss the results. This creates an accountability as a group and makes sharing the successes more fun. High fives all around!

 

Having a fulfilling, meaningful career is one of the keys to happiness. You spend majority of your time working, which is why it’s so important to seek out a career that you feel a calling toward. One of the best ways to figure this out is to think about what you enjoy doing when you are not working, or what you would do if money was not a factor. Do you enjoy caring for people? Do you enjoy volunteering at your local humane society? Do you look forward to running home to be with your dog? If you are a dog person, FlipFlop franchisees live a fulfilling career as they build their own business based on their love for dogs.

 

“Find something you love to do and you’ll never have to work a day in your life.”

 

 

We’ve all heard that “money can’t buy happiness”, which is true, unless you are talking about going somewhere or doing something. Going on a vacation or spending the day on a boat- having experiences–  is one of the main links to happiness. The expensive couch that you wanted for years becomes just a place to sit after the novelty of it wears off. Being a franchisee, you are able to make your own schedule and are making a considerable income, which allows you to go on vacation. There are no numbered vacation days, as you own your business. Experience the world with your favorite travel partner or go enjoy the beautiful beach day with your children. We want you to be happy and experience things!

 

Exercise equals endorphins. As a FlipFlop franchisee, you have a flexible schedule. You are able to schedule your marketing stops, meetings and appointments with what works best with you! If you like to take an afternoon spin class, go for it! You won’t have to miss out on an exercising opportunity because of your strict working hours. We don’t babysit you or require certain hours. Happier, healthier you is possible.

 

Lastly, spend time with those you love. Being around your friends and family is a wonderful feeling. FlipFlop franchisees don’t miss their son’s soccer game or a friend’s birthday dinner because work ran late. You get to spend more time with the people you care about. Being there during these fun events will make you happier and will make your life less stressful. Stop missing out on family and friends time because you have a restrictive job. Become a business owner and you will make your own schedule to have the flexibility to enjoy the time with your loved ones.

 

This was our take on the recent Business Insider article, read the full study here. We feel strongly that happiness is important for our franchisees. FlipFlop franchisees enjoy going to work every day. They chose to leave their desk jobs to become a successful business owner. If you are looking for happiness and love dogs, we’d love to speak to you about our exciting opportunities. We are looking to expand our FlipFlop network in 2015. Contact us today at: info@flipflopdogs.com, fill out an application or give us a call at (800)-710-1740×106.

NAVC Conference 2015

Calendar Posted on Jan 14, 2015 by tmiltz

FlipFlop Dogs to Attend NAVC Conference 2015

 

FlipFlop Pro Model Beneficial to Veterinary Practices

 

flip-flop-vet-facebook-coverphoto

 

FlipFlop Dogs will be attending the NAVC (National American Veterinary Community) Conference for the first time, this year! We’re filled with the anticipation of meeting great veterinarians at this conference and explaining how FlipFlop will enhance and take their practice to the next level.  

 

Offering a premium, complimenting service to their existing practice, veterinarians will benefit by adding the FlipFlop service as it will add an additional revenue stream and make the practice the premier one-stop shop for dog care, without adding office staff or square footage. Adding the FlipFlop service is easy and does not require significant time or manpower because of our efficient training and built out business plan. Our international award-winning business model is designed to be turnkey and completely operational within a few weeks. With the Customer Service Support Center and Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system, operations are handled efficiently and professionally, without adding additional staff to answer inquiries and incoming calls. There are numerous advantages to how veterinary practices will enhance their practice with the addition of a FlipFlop partnership. Our FlipFlop representatives will be at the conference to speak more on this exclusive partnership and what is required to fit our criteria to add a FlipFlop service to a veterinarian practice.

 

FlipFlop Dogs is the alternative to kenneling, providing complete peace of mind to dog owners while they are away. Veterinary practices benefit by providing their clients with a needed service, which they normally rely on another business, competitor or an unsatisfying option, such as a family member. FlipFlop is a mobile operation, with only a van needed to transport dogs- meaning no additional square footage is needed in the practice. With this service, dogs stay in a real home, with certified dog lovers, rather than in a cold, concrete floor cage with minimal human contact. Dogs return home happy, healthy and, best of all, normal (just like they were on a vacation)!

 

Want to learn more before the show? Visit our opportunity page and fill out a form. You will be contacted shortly by a FlipFlop representative. At the NAVC Conference, stop by our Marriott booth #3834 to speak with us personally about our exciting opportunities with our FlipFlop Pro Model. If you are not able to make it to the conference, please email us at: info@flipflopdogs.com or give us a call at: (800)-710-1740 x106. 

 

5 Reasons A FlipFlop Franchisee Has More Fun

Calendar Posted on Nov 19, 2014 by tmiltz

Why Being a FlipFlop Franchisee Means You Have More Fun

 

Bring Your Work Week Up to Speed with Your Weekend Life

 

Being a FlipFlop franchisee is not just a career, it’s a lifestyle change that leads you to have a more fulfilling and enjoyable work week. Hate sitting in a desk chair staring at a computer screen all day, but love going home to your  furry best friend? Do you daydream of having a career that provides a flexible schedule and makes you as happy as a puppy licking your face? You are in luck and we are going to tell you how to start loving what you do with our five reasons why a FlipFlop franchisee has more fun than majority of adults.

 

Playing and meeting new dogs happens every day.  If you aren’t a dog lover, this is probably not the franchise right for you. Our  franchisees meet new doggy customers (“sniff” around for potential customers), return happy vacationing dogs and are surrounded by dogs all day. Dogs happen to be the most fun customer and we’ve found that they really love going on vacation. FlipFlop franchisees prosper with doggy kisses, wagging tails and snuggling with the cutest pups!

 

Helping dog owners go away by providing an alternative to kenneling. As a dog owner, going away is hard. The options of kenneling, having a pet sitter or relying on friends and family have proven to not be the best methods. Your dog does not receive the one-on-one desirable attention that you provide, in a comfortable home, while maintaining their home life routine. FlipFlop franchisees provide all of that, and more! FlipFlop franchisees enjoy providing their local dog owners with the ability to go away, without having to worry about their dog receiving proper care and attention.

 

Matching dog lovers with vacationing dogs. A great vacation is all about having fun, being comfortable and relaxing. FlipFlop franchisees place vacationing dogs with certified dog lovers who have similar schedules, live in similar home environments and enjoy the same amount of daily exercise. Meeting dog lovers means talking about dogs. If you love dogs as much as we do, that’s a pretty fun day. Then you get to match those great dogs that you met with the awesome dog lovers, to make for the best vacation for all! This is explained in more detail when you become a FlipFlop franchisee, but we’ve got a full-proof way for you to easily match the dogs with their best Companion. FlipFlop franchisees get to play matchmaker, but with dogs, and more smiles (and virtually no failing relationships).

 

Customer Dog Return

 

Not sitting at a desk all day. I don’t know how much you like to sit in uncomfortable, stuffy offices with an impersonal desk and a close, smelly coworker, but it just wasn’t for us. FlipFlop franchisees have a home-base, but spend most days meeting customers, networking with influencers and collaborating with dog organizations at fun events! Yes, going to dog events do help your business and, yes, they are extremely fun. FlipFlop franchisees seek out different tasks each day, which makes work weeks less boring and allows you to look forward to Mondays!

 

Forget the strict schedules and demanding deadlines. As a FlipFlop franchisee, you own your business, which means you have a flexible schedule. You have the liberty of scheduling your appointments, visiting influencers and going to events based on the schedule you create for yourself. Remember your kid’s soccer game you missed or your dog’s obedience training class?As a FlipFlop franchisee, we want you to be able to live your life and enjoy going to work. You create your project deadlines, your monthly and weekly goals and we provide any assistance along the way. Stressful deadlines and strict schedules are not conducive to a positive work relationship. We put significance on work life balance so that our franchisees remain happy because happy business owners are successful business owners!

 

Our FlipFlop franchisees are overall happier regarding their work life because they are able to live out their dreams of working with dogs and enjoy the aspects of owning their own business. If you are a dog lover, start doing what you love and join our FlipFlop team of franchisees. Request franchise information today!

Reasons to Apply for the Veteran Franchise Giveaway

Calendar Posted on Oct 01, 2014 by tmiltz

Top 10 Reasons You Should Apply to FlipFlop Dogs’ Veteran Franchise Giveaway

 

ProfilePictureWhether you are a veteran, or know of a veteran, or just stumbled upon this page, these reasons should give you more of an explanation as to why it would be a terribly mistake to not apply to win a FlipFlop Dogs franchise. Enter to win by October 12th!

 

  1. Dream Up Your Career Success. As a veteran, you have worked incredibly hard to defend your country and keep us all safe at home. Now, it’s time to focus on your homeland career and start living out those wild and crazy dreams of owning your own business. Becoming a franchisee with FlipFlop Dogs means that you are able to have your own business, but not take the complete risk of starting from scratch. You deserve to have the fulfilling, “looking-forward-to-waking-up-on-Monday” career and this giveaway gives you that opportunity.
  2. Enjoying the Slobbery Kisses Throughout the Day. Everyone has seen the articles and studies about how dogs are beneficial to be around. Whether you are a veteran or not, our brains are altered (for the better) when dogs are by your side. Dogs allow us to focus on caring for others and remind us of what really matters. (Plus it’s hard to be sad or angry when there is a dog looking up at you with those adorable puppy eyes). There is really no better customer than a dog. As a FlipFlop Dogs franchisee, you are interacting with customer’s dogs daily, and getting to know their personality while registering them for a vacation. Or you are picking up a dog at their Companion’s home in time to greet their owner with a wagging tail. There are numerous touch points throughout the day where you will smile and realize how much you love your job because there is an adorable dog by your side.
  3. Applicable Experience From Training. Veterans do not have the same background and experience, but what we do know is that you are all extremely hard workers, work well with a team and excel in following a process. These qualities are directly applicable to becoming a successful franchisee. We admire your dedication to our country and value the skills you obtained during your tenure. Your characteristic and traits will greatly help you in becoming a successful FlipFlop Dogs franchisee.
  4. No Experience Required. One of the great benefits about franchising is the opportunity to switch career paths without having any previous industry experience. Although you are coming along with the useful skills you acquired within military training, we do not expect you to know everything about dogs or how to run a FlipFlop franchise. You may be a dog lover, but don’t know how to run a dog business. Whatever it may be, we are fully prepared in training and supporting you throughout the lifetime of your business. There is no better way to start your career as a business owner than having the guidance of the franchisors, and existing franchisees as a network. The FlipFlop Dogs franchise has all of the tools, software, process, etc in place for you already. By winning this Veteran Franchise Giveaway, you will receive all of this free of cost.
  5. Become a Homebody. With the months and years spent away from home, it’s time to kick back and relax. The FlipFlop Dogs franchise is set up to be fully operational from your home. That being said, no customers, Companion Families or other business partners will enter into your home. Franchisees do not have a storefront since they operate by picking up dogs and taking them to their matched Companion Family. Our process is mobile (and paperless) for you to enjoy rolling out of bed in your pajamas as you look over your schedule for the day. Let us know if that doesn’t sound ideal to you and we can figure something out :).
  6. Flexible Equals Happiness. Remember when you had to be some place exactly when someone told you or you would get in trouble? Well, we thought it was time to mix it up. Forget the “9-5” hours as our franchisees operate with a flexible schedule, based on their availability. We do anticipate you working a 40 hour work week, we just feel that people should be able to choose a little based on what hours they operate best on. By entering in the Veteran Franchise Giveaway, you can say goodbye to the demanding boss who wants you in the office, at your desk, at 8AM sharp!
  7. Free! Free! Free! We could go on and on as to why we love the FlipFlop Dogs model or why we believe veterans would make the best franchisees, but this one reason should come with only positive reactions. It’s free! Entering in the contest is free and winning is free. If you can come up with an excuse as to why you shouldn’t enter, then you might want to get your head checked out. You are taking zero risk by applying for this giveaway. If you win, you will have the incredibly opportunity to be given the rights to a branded franchise without the burden of the franchise costs. Seriously, start your application now at the Veteran Franchise Giveaway Page. The application requires basic information to make sure you are a real person and a compelling essay to explain to us why we should pick you as the winner of the $48,000 FlipFlop Dogs Veteran Franchise Giveaway!
  8. There is An “I” In Franchising But….. You will never be alone when you are working as a franchisee in the FlipFlop Dogs network. Franchising is a great way to be in business for yourself, but not by yourself. You will always have a fellow franchisee to turn to if you are having problems, or to your experienced (and dedicated) franchisors. We even have a Social Media/Marketing Guru to help you get your feet off the ground and continue to drive business in, without breaking the bank. You are able to call a number of resources at anytime to gain helpful information and guiding you in the right direction. Failure is not the option.
  9. Becoming Independent. Waiting around for that raise from your boss is so last year, building your own success and profit margins is your future. Owning a FlipFlop franchise means that you are the one bringing in your business and building the brand locally. If you want to make more money, great! We will give you more tools to expand your business. We know how to bring in success and will coach you in explaining our proven methods. As a FlipFlop Dogs franchisee, we will help to keep you on track toward reaching your financial goals with our bi-weekly check-ins.
  10. Once In A Lifetime. The reason we started this is to show our gratitude to our incredible veterans. We would love to be able to give back to you each one of you, but we realize that’s not possible. The reason to act on this Veteran Franchise Giveaway RIGHT NOW, is that this will be the only one we do. We will not be doing this annually, or centennially, this opportunity is happening now and your chance in entering is closing in. Enter by OCTOBER 12TH to be considered in our Veteran Franchise Giveaway and read up on all of the Rules and Regulations. Please contact us at: contest@FlipFlopDogs.com if you have any questions. Now hurry and get your application in before it’s too late!

 

 

We look forward to hearing from you and thank you for your interest in the FlipFlop Dogs Veteran Franchise Giveaway!

Our Valuation of a Veteran

Calendar Posted on Sep 09, 2014 by tmiltz

Why We Started the Veteran Franchise Giveaway

FlipFlop Dogs will be giving away a franchise to one honorably discharged veteran, as a small token of our appreciation and gratitude for all they have done for our country.

 

The numbers are astonishing. With more than 21 million veterans in the U.S., there are over 200,00 that are unable to find a job. The statistics are a tragedy and could be considered an embarrassment to our nation. After all our veterans have sacrificed for us, allowing Americans to feel safe at home while they are out there sacrificing their lives; the least we could do is provide them with homeland financial security when they arrive safely home. We are unsure as to how our admirable, dedicated veterans became a staggering statistic of unemployment. At FlipFlop Dogs, we noticed and decided to take action.

 

The number of veterans unemployed or dissatisfied with their careers vastly outweighs our franchises ability to make the largest difference. From a franchisor perspective, we felt that our gratitude would best be served in helping a veteran build a successful business, without having to worry about hardships of acquiring assets for an investment fee. Franchising serves as an appropriate opportunity to allow veterans to learn from our three-day training, be supported along the way, receive any guidance needed, and having less risk than starting a new business.  We are looking for enthusiastic, hard-working, dedicated veterans who aspire to own their own business and willing to put in the time and effort to build their success. These veterans are not hard to find, as they make up the most diligent and preserving men and women of our country. Without them, we wouldn’t be the country we are today. Our mission of providing a veteran with this opportunity to build their success, with an established business model, started with two great men from our family- our fathers.

 

SCAN0001SCAN0002

 

Jack and I’s fathers served in World War II and the Korea War, respectively. Hearing of their struggles as they returned back to civilian life, came with a heavy heart. Both of our fathers were fortunate enough to become successful business owners, and we believe their military training gave them a strong foot forward. Their confidence, persistent attitude and perfecting their business process led them being our role models. We would like to return the favor and recognition by giving their fellow veterans a piece of career achievement., as your experience and skills are very valuable.

 

From all of here at FlipFlop Dogs, we thank you for the sacrifices you made for our country. Whether you enter this Veteran Franchise Giveaway, or find your career in another place, we hope you find happiness, success and security in civilian life. Enter for the giveaway, before September 21st, by visiting our Veteran Giveaway page. Please email us at: contest@FlipFlopDogs.com if you have any questions about how to enter or on your submission.

Top 5 Reasons to Join an Emerging Franchise

Calendar Posted on Jul 08, 2014 by tmiltz

Why Becoming a Part of a Young Franchise is Beneficial

 

Investing in any franchise is a risk. You’re counting on franchisors for guidance; other franchisees for support and you’re investing a ton of money to build your business. Now add the risk factor of investing in an emerging franchise, a franchise with only a few franchisees. Does it add risk? Maybe, but there are far more benefits of investing in an emerging franchise that the little added risk, is a fleeting concern. Your voice is not only heard by the franchisors, but it’s also helping to make positive changes for future franchisees.  Take a extremely large franchise such as, McDonalds or Hilton. Can you imagine a franchisee picking up the phone to call the President of the company to share an idea they had on how to make franchisees daily operations more efficient? In an emerging franchise, you are able to have a close relationship with the corporate team behind the concept and your ideas will be taken seriously. They believe in you as much as you believe in them. Here are five more reasons to join an emerging franchise:

  1.  Make the Difference. When a franchise is starting out, they rely heavily on their few franchisees because they are looking to perfect and develop their model. Franchisors seek advice and look for solutions during this time so it’s a fun opportunity to voice your opinion. If you continue to be a strong franchisee, you’ll see your ideas transpire to other franchisees. Consider stepping up to the challenge of voicing your opinions when you have an idea, and you’ll be rewarded as a crucial part of their team.
  2. Seeing the Growth. The risk-reward benefit is a balancing act when choosing to invest in an emerging franchise. Once you find a concept that you truly believe in, the reward will undoubtedly outweigh the risk.  Investing early allows you to be an integral part of the growth throughout the lifetime of the franchise. When new franchisees come on board, you would be an essential part of explaining your daily operations and validation through your success. You don’t just see your business grow, but you proudly see the franchise’s network of similar minded entrepreneurs grow too.
  3. Expansion Opportunity. Emerging franchises should have territories mapped out, but they most likely will not be filled. If you start as part of their first few franchisees, you will have room to grow and expand your territory. Show your strengths and capabilities and you could earn your surrounding territories. Once the territories are taken, you will not have this opportunity.
  4. The Excitement. Rather than investing in a large, mundane franchise, an emerging franchise is new and exciting. Although brand recognition will be a work in progress, you get to do the gratifying part of educating consumers and seeing their reaction of how cool your business is. Having an emerging franchise allows you to be a true entrepreneur of owning your business, educating consumers and being the brand image. With an emerging franchise, you help to create and shape the brand.
  5. Importance in the Team. In a franchise, the franchisors are the coaches, the veteran franchisees are the captains and the others are the players. Franchises are a team that makes up a network of individuals with similar mindsets of believing in the franchise concept. With a cluster of 150+ franchises having a close franchisee to turn to, is hard. When you start with an emerging franchise, you will be among few franchisees enabling you to get close with the others. Your team will be a close-knit group. You’ll feel comfortable calling someone who you’ve known from the ground up and have had similar experiences.  As a note, be kind and incorporate new franchisees in when the network gets large- they’ll appreciate it as much as you did!

 

 

While looking at potential franchise opportunities, consider these 5 benefits of joining an emerging franchise. Above all, ensure that you believe in the concept before investing to become a franchisee.  Are you looking for an opportunity with an emerging franchise?
