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!




2014 Expansion Plans

Expansion Plans for FlipFlop Dogs Team in 2014

2014 Expansion Plans Come with Anticipated Excitement

After spending three years perfecting the FlipFlop Dogs franchise model, the owners are extremely excited to announce their plans to expand in the metro Ohio areas of Columbus, Akron-Canton and Cleveland.


The first FlipFlop Dogs franchise opened in 2011 in Mentor, Ohio, outside of Cleveland, and has been busy since. Finding that dog owners who do not want to kennel their dogs while they are away are in the majority, the expansion plans come as no surprise.


While the FlipFlop Dogs concept is new to the U.S., an alternative to kenneling/dog boarding facilities is of normalcy in the United Kingdom. The FlipFlop Dogs franchise owners learned from the British franchisor of the year, Barking Mad, comprised of 60 franchisees. This unique alternative allows dogs owners to travel without the guilt, as their dog is being taken care of by one of our Companion Families. Our Companion Families provide 24/7 individualized attention and care as they do not work outside of their home. The days where dog owners had no other option than paying for their dog to stay on a cold, concrete floors in 4X8 cage, with limited direct attention or exercise- are long gone. Dogs in the FlipFlop franchise area, stay in a home similar to their own, their routine is maintained to a tee and no more than one customer’s dogs in residence.


FlipFlop Dogs franchise owners have found happiness and joy in giving their community an alternative to the current dog boarding options. Not only do they have a flexible schedule, own their own business and have mobility to access the entire database on any smartphone or tablet, but they absolutely love what they do!
