Dog food and supplies brand signs first development agreement to date
September 29, 2021 // Franchising.com // PHOENIX, Arizona – As many companies halt expansion efforts, Minnesota-based franchise strives to take its wellness-focused brand of pets in Arizona. Pet Evolution, a local and healthy pet supply store dedicated to providing the highest quality products, shaking up the pet industry. The brand has just signed a development agreement to bring 25 new locations from Scottsdale to Tucson over the next 10 years.
With two locations currently open in its home state of Minnesota, the franchise is making its first entry into Arizona. Expansion efforts will be led by franchise titans Tammi Veater and Aleshia McNamara, who envision metro areas including Phoenix, Sedona and Scottsdale.
“Pet Evolution is a brand that we’re really excited to be a part of because we resonate with the standard of pet care they provide,” said Veater. “With my franchise experience, I’ve seen brands more interested in growing than contributing to their potential communities, but after getting to know Pet Evolution, it became very clear that this was a passionate brand. “
Prior to joining Pet Evolution, Veater built his reputation in the franchise business with over 20 years of experience working with multiple brands, most recently developing the Chicago area for Massage ENVY for 47 clinics. McNamara brings insurance background, owning her own agency with her husband, Pat, interfacing with over 50 franchised brands for 40 years collectively. Veater being from Arizona, the duo are confident in their ability to position their future franchisees to achieve incredible success.
“We were inspired by Pet Evolution’s holistic approach to pet care, with curated food selection,” McNamara added. “The services provided by Pet Evolution keep dogs healthy and prevent problems down the line. Our community loves their dogs and we look forward to taking care of them.
Pet Evolution was founded in 2012 by friends Rian Thiele and Mike Osborn, both of whom saw their childhood dogs suffer from itchy paws, chronic ear infections and multiple vet visits from undiagnosed food allergies.
Pet Evolution began the franchise after Peter Carlson, president of Pet Evolution Franchising, LLC, fell in love with the brand, remains a loyal customer to this day. Before joining the team, Peter turned to Pet Evolution when his standard poodle, Leo, suffered from digestive issues and allergies, after countless trials with other products with no results. After opting for products approved by their team, Peter immediately saw positive results in helping his dog live a happier life.
“We are delighted to welcome Tammi and Aleshia and their years of franchise experience to the Pet Evolution team,” said Carlson. “Their commitment to the success of their franchisee is unprecedented. We can’t wait to see how they guide our future partners towards reaching and exceeding their goals.
