Hear what our Bone & Biscuit franchisees have to say

Owning a Bone and Biscuit has been an awesome opportunity for our entire family. It is hard work but very rewarding. We now have so much more flexibility and are happy to be living the lifestyle we were hoping for. To be able to combine our passion with our work is amazing and we get to meet so many great people in our local community. We really enjoy being small business owners and having the support of a larger organization behind us has been incredibly helpful.

Jay & Karen, Bone & Biscuit Newport Village

We've been open for business for a short seven months, but being a Bone & Biscuit owner has been a pleasure. Lee and Steve are always a phone call away and the support that I feel from head office gives me great comfort. This has been a great business venture for us.

Dora, Bone & Biscuit Etobicoke

We opened our doors about one year ago and have never looked back. Owning and operating a Bone & Biscuit franchise has been both exciting and gratifying. As an established, recognized and respected brand name, we’ve made good relationships with both our vendors and our customers easily. Lee, Steve & the entire ownership group are always available to help. It can be a lot of work at times, but nothing beats helping our community while petting dogs all day long.

Is there a market for natural pet food stores?

Various reports indicate that Canadians are estimated to spend nearly $4 billion on their pets this year from food and toys, kennels, grooming, and training to veterinary services. Canadians spend more on their pets than they do on toys and candy combined. No region in Canada hasn’t experienced an increased level of demand for pet products and services. The APPMA (American Pet Product Manufacturers Association Inc.) projects Americans to spend $38.4 billion in 2010, up 100% from ten years ago. This trend shows absolutely no indication of slowing down. In fact, the business and financial community believes the pet industry will grow at an average rate of between 6 and 8% annually. The bottom line is clear. The growth of the pet industry is not just a “trend”. It is a lifestyle shift that has resulted in the creation of a healthy and vibrant industry catering to our beloved animals.
