RISMEDIA, April 6, 2007-FETCH! Pet Care has announced that it has signed a partnership agreement with Caregivers On Call, a provider of corporate employee benefits services. Through the deal, which marks the first time a pet care-related company has been formally inducted into a national employee benefits initiative, FETCH! Pet Care's services will be promoted among Caregivers On Call's suite of employer offerings currently utilized by more then 250,000 employees throughout the United States.
FETCH! Pet Care, a pet care franchise offering professional pet sitting and dog walking services, has also launched a nationwide initiative to form strategic national and localized affiliate partnerships in a selection of specialized industries, including corporations, veterinarians, groomers, pet stores, Realtors, and travel agencies, as well as pet-friendly hotels, resorts, apartment buildings, and condominium associations, for whom the lack of reliable pet care for its customers and employees presents specific business challenges and is limiting their revenue potential. FETCH! Pet Care has already created initial relationships with regional divisions or locations of a variety of Fortune 500 companies in the banking, hospitality, pet care and manufacturing sectors.
"Offering FETCH! Pet Care's services as a ‘perk' to our commercial partner's customers and employees is helping them maximize overall operational productivity, increase sales and provides well-received peace-of-mind as pet owners are no longer distressed or challenged with finding reliable care while at work or traveling," FETCH! Pet Care founder & CEO Paul Mann said.
The company also announced it has partnered with FranGrowth Corporation, a division of Dynetech Corporation- a brand development company-which will provide strategic marketing, sales, event management and enterprise development services to accelerate FETCH! Pet Care's franchise expansion efforts.
FranGrowth, whose client roster includes The Learning Annex, Donald Trump's Power Summit, and Quiznos, will manage a sophisticated FETCH! Pet Care franchise sales and marketing program that includes live weekly seminars in the top U.S. markets for prospective franchisees that is supported by a mix of advertising and media-budgeted dollars.
"Having recently surpassed the benchmark of servicing more than 1,000 cities and towns through 67 franchise locations across the United States, our franchise business model has been proven successful and our approach to pet care has been validated," said Mann. "These recent business development deals exemplify our intention to build a true nationwide network of readily available, professional pet sitters and extend our services through a multiplicity of vertical industry B2B channels in order to establish FETCH! Pet Care as ‘the' go-to pet care service provider for pet owners everywhere."
FETCH! Pet Care provides pet owners with a range of services that meet their needs and budget, including boarding and daycare in the sitter's home, overnight sitting and daily visits in the client's home, private and group dog outings, pet taxiing, Go FETCH! four-legged fitness, yard pet waste removal, and miscellaneous home care.
